Yes, finished yesterday - typical Thai publicity:

42nd Vintage Car Contest| 13-17 June | 10.30 - 21.00 at Zpell Future Park Rangsit
Season 2017/18 Plymouth Argyle

Points 68; Position 7

I BELIEVED It's still coming home. Just not quite sure when.

Yes it is utter BS! Why list it after the event? I think it is like a lot of other things here; the HiSo's that can afford the cars have their own liitle clique and it is not run to show them off to the peasants, just to brag to each other. I have tried for years to join several clubs and just get ignored.

They don't want loads of people turning up with 1960's Datsun pickups! (Which is a pity, because I wouldn't mind one.)

It was advertised on their FB page but remember it was a Thai event, they had no interest in Farangs attending. Just like so many events here.
