Re: Doncaster 2022 anyone?

No overnight camping - arrive on the morning of the show and leave at the end.

Not sure I'll be going this year - part of the appeal was to go the day before and have a chilled out evening around the firepit - looks like that's a thing of the past :thud:

Re: Newark Tractor show 2021

There were a few commercial vehicles lined up, one traction engine and probably about 25 stationary engines as w...
