That would be a good plan! I don't think I even saw the MSA stand

I'm surprised
It would have been the only stand with a large crowd of disgruntled people having a warm discussion of why they done this that & the other.

I saw the the stand was busy on Thursday.
I bet the MSA were dreading the first few hours of the show and by the time of the last day, peed off with the same question been asked.

you mean the 2 trade days as opposed to the public days. the general public still think that hillclimbing consists of going up muddy hills and that the MSA is something you catch in hospitals
Exactly and so there is little point having a presence on the Thursday and Friday and not at the weekend.

Just imagine if there had been a stand with a number of hillclimb videos on a loop - in car Jos Goodyear or Graeme Wight jnr for example - and a supply of brochures to hand out to explain it all - you see all the kids (and adults - you know you do!) scurrying around hoovering up every bit of paperwork they can find lying about. Add a car for kids to sit in and get their photo taken and how about the hillclimb simulator I have seen at various venues. Fastest time of the day gets a couple of passes to their local hillclimb. It always seems that we are underselling our sport. Do we want spectators or not? And don't get me started on making sure we keep the spectators we do have already........
