    British Motorshow - my feelings....

    OK, was invited by AutoExpress to attend the Motorshow yesterday with a couple of other readers to contribute to an article next week.. these are just some of my impressions for those of you attending, or thinking of.

    1. Take some water - if the weather continues like this you'll fry. It was hot enough yesterday and there were no crowds, can't imagine what it'll be like full of people.

    2. The show... hmmm, it really didn't feel like a major motorshow, more like a bigger version of the Canary Wharf Expo, a couple of us independently reached the same conclusion.

    3. The Supercar Paddock. Don't expect Goodwood levels of access, in fact it initially looks like you can't get anywhere near the cars, but if you go and ask at the central booth a manufacturers representative with take you round the cars you are interested in.

    4. Most of the stands are pretty good, Vauxhall got top marks for having all the cars there, plenty of access and knowledgable staff. Poor show by Jaguar though, one XKR coupe on a revolving platform that the public will only be able to get with 10 feet of and a Convertible version hidden upstairs only accessible by those invited by the dealers, even worse seeing people like Aston & Bentley are giving full access to everyone (just controlling the number of people on the stand at any one time)

    5. If you've got a Mini take a key, only way you'll get access to the Mini Barge, didn't go there myself but the guy who did said it was pretty good. And a chance to get away from the crowds.

    I could go on. Overall it was a but of a damp squib, some of that may have been due to the lack of people on a non-public day, the crowds always create a bit of a buzz. supposedly the organisers have reserved the location for the next 10 years so hopefully it'll build nicely, although if those manufacturers who didn't attend this time start turning up I don't know where they'll put them.

    Oh, one final tip, if you're getting the DLR there from Canning town make sure you get the right train - there's a nice Motorshow rep telling you which platform to go to, but she forgot to tell people that not every train from that platform stops at ExCeL - met a few people who caught the wrong train and ended up at City Airport!!
