Looks like I better expedite my machine polish and ceramics so I am not embarrased!

I do a little bit on track, but not a lot, and I'm not especially harsh with cars. So my experience is just tyres and fuel so far.
People tell me they're significantly more expensive to run than an S2 Exige, but I find it pretty cheap to run compared to other cars that I have.
All about perspective I guess. Id imagined it would be more expensive to run than the S2 yes, Cup2 tyres or similar, heavier and bigger everything, but in the grand scheme of things, as you say, it is still a cheap car to own and run compared to most things that offer that performance.

Also this will be an opportunity to do some venue reconnaissance for the QPV event that you agreed to organise for 2022
I think an airfield might be a tad optimistic in terms of size requirements.... and you know the minute anyone organises anything for X, Y will want to show up - mainly those in pointy GT's and asbo exhausts, some harping on about how few seats they have...:)
But a squadron of QPs would look epic

Is a QP with asbo exhaust allowed?
Sywell Hotel is a nice retro place with decent food. Not sure on rooms if anyone was stopping over. They have a regular classic car meet on a Wednesday afternoon I think. Or did in 2019!

Well, in theory there are about 800 QPVs in the UK, so I think we could expect somewhere in the 50-150 zone if we promoted it well.

Sywell says that there is a car park near the 'Blister' hanger that can accommodate about 125-150 cars, or for larger events of up to 1,000 cars, an area of grass on the airfield can be fenced off.

It is a large compacted stone car park. I think the blister hanger is the new one at the end which houses the spitfire.
