I spent some time with Neil at the Yorkshire drive and he was talking to me about his health, he did seem very upbeat and loving life out in the Zed on that day.
He will be missed for his great company and massive input in collecting data on the MZ3 numbers.

My thoughts are with his family.

You do need to arrive early, if not the numbers or you don't want an early start then you can just turn up and park in the tarmaced carpark- which is just as interesting viewing and where we normally end up as a club. ...

Contact the organiser straight away if you want an area.
The turnout was so good that they now only take booked clubs.
Great day out and a wide range of static vehicles.
The museum is also worth the visit.
