Thats right, were in Yorkshire for this one and for once it wasn't ' grim oop north ' as the sun was shining right from the word go. YMS (Yorkshire Motor Show) has been a popular show which the FNM faithful have hit for a number of years now with its unique Time trails that happen in the main grassed area outside and the popular indoor top50 all taking place at the Pickering showground. Traders pack the outskirts of the fields and with an added bonus of a carboot sale in the field adjacent to it.
Team FNM ran 2 convoys for this event, one for the top 50 and the other for the club stand. The top 50 convoy left at 6am to get to the event for 7:15am. After fuelling up on sausage & egg mcmuffins and O.J we hit the A1079 and headed towards York. The trip there was pretty uneventful until we got towards York where we saw many a modified car club parked up in laybys and cafe car parks all ready to hit one of Yorkshire's biggest shows we even managed to pick up Dale & Jamie on our travels with their show stopping Saxo & Golf.
Upon arrival it was same old really with the dusty bumpy track in to the grounds causing one or two issues for a few FNM cars including Rich & Steves cars but some where lucky as they where packing air ride and hydros. Upon getting into the arena many of the cars where in place already and most owners where applying layer upon layer of wax ready for the show to open and the judging to begin & within minutes the smell of wax, polish and various other cleaners filled the air as FNM joined in...
The show starts at 9am, FNM DJ's Rich & Arron are already spinning the tunes, the sun is shining..the cars are spotless. Ladies and Gents it's YMS 2011 time !
