For the first time this year SXOC had a stand at the Festival of Classic and Sports cars which is held every year at Helmingham Hall just north of Ipswich. There are a wide range of cars on show both on club stands and as individual exhibits. Other clubs included Pistonheads, Jag XK Enthusiasts Club, Mustang Owners Club and BMW OC. If you add to this the individual exhibits which included a Ferrari 458, Old School Fords, a Vintage Bentley and a few Nobles it made for a very interesting show.
The club made a good effort with 5 S Bodies on show and also showed off our new flags, hopefully in the future the attendance from members will grow as this has the potential to be one of the club’s main attractions.
What makes this show a little different from the other static shows is that they have a Concours area but twice during the day the owners get to show their pride and joy off, by driving it up and down the main drive of the hall which is around 200m long. This breaks the day up nicely and is
a great photo opportunity.
We are already looking forward to 2015 and hopefully the club will have a bigger stand. One last thing, the pulled pork burgers are to die for, but you need to get in early

amount of interestWe weren’t expecting many to turn up with the short notice and it being a ‘school’ night so when we arrived at 7.30 and there were already cars there, we were more than surprised!The location turned out to be a great, quiet little area (apart from a few Vauxhall drivers…) and might be a possible future area for meets.
Massive thanks to everyone that attendedBig shout out to Jake Dent & SXOC, Gary Sung & Team440, Carey Simpson & S-Chassis and Martin Day PhotographySee you next time…..By Liam Rhodes
