Can I be the first one to say Transitmania 9 was great! Kath and I thoroughly enjoyed taking Super Hans out on his maiden voyage.

Many thanks to Carl, Alistair and everyone else involved in running and organising it, and congratulations to all the winners. :D :D :D :D :D

Another brilliant successful show ,had a great time, met old and new friends, and was organised once again to the highest level.
Big thanks to the organizer's Luke and Ali ect. :D :D . The pod was a smashing venue ,would be good for next year.
Just to plant a seed, but would be fun if we could rag the vans down the strip :twisted: say have tm10 on a run what you bring week end :?: .
Only a suggestion :wink: :D :D

Another great weekend for me too :D

thanks to everyone who helped us out and Just Transits for sponsoring the event :D

Santa Pod was a super venue, they were really welcoming and are keen to have us back next year Alistair and myself are in talks now for next year and will post up as soon as we have confirmed a date to give everyone plenty of time to take advantage of the early booking fee offer :D
