Wakefield Thornes Park Show, Fri eve 7th July 2017

#1 Post by Paul_1978_yorks » Wed Apr 05, 2017 7:44 am

This is a well established and well attended show in my home town.

It's an evening show, which in the light summer evenings is lovely. Nice pub on site too (Holmfield Arms).

I'm taking my 416. Slight downside is that cars seem to have to be pre 1992 so that would rule some of us out. However I'm happy to make some enquiries for a club stand where they may allow all model years.

Please post if there is any interest.

Paul, hi

Wakefield is not too far north from Nottingham, I may be tempted to attend with my 216GTi 1990 Reg.

Will look at it a bit nearer the date.

John

Just returned from this show - very enjoyable. Highly recommended for next year.

There was one other R8 there (a cabby). Will put pics up later.
