If you didn`t get to this years Transitmania............................................why?Did the weather predictions put you off,too far to travel,skint,van broken or just couldn`t be bothered!
Great to see lots of new vans and faces and have a good "yarn",but there were quite a few of the "old faithfuls" missing.
We even had a couple of guys turn up in a face lift 7 from 6 recovery and a nice Mk5 truck as we were about to leave,so what happened there?Plenty more pics will appear i`m sure.Roll on Mania 2013.

I've been to all the Transitmanias so far, and was gutted to miss this one :( :(

Reason;
My van's off the road as I can't afford to run it anymore, due to a long commute to my new job :(
We still intended to come with a car and tent but a catalogue of events over the weekend put the kibosh on the plan :wink:
Pants indeed, but hope to be there next year of course :)

Hope y'all had a good time, and great to hear it was bigger and better again, as every year 8) 8)
Well done everyone

I hate bus drivers! But aside from some great racing, the chippy was the best thing about Wigan. Although it could be argued that the M6 south is the best thing about Wigan :)
