Brian Shaw who organised the event put on an excellent display covering all aspects of Turner cars from their humble beginnings at Seisdon, through to their works at Pendeford, Wolverhampton, their restoration, and racing career. Many of the visitors viewed the display, and Brian was at hand to answer questions, and talk to people about their Turner cars.

The sun shone and many of the visitors enjoyed the excellent facilities at the café, and explored Bantock House. Everyone who came along thoroughly enjoyed themselves. Memories were rekindled and newcomers were introduced to the world of Turner sports cars.
