WESTON PARK Festival of Transport/Motorfest

Postby ROVER-25X » Sat Aug 19, 2017 7:01 pm

Has the Club or anyone in this Club ever been to this event ?

I went 4 years on the bounce with the Escort Cabriolet Club back in the day, was a good day out,
plenty to see, it looks like its been rebranded now as it used to be call the Weston Park Festival
of Transport but now its just called Motorfest, its still the same date, mid-April, may clash with
PoL next year but just pondering an alternative event.

I went to a few of those back in the late 1990s/early 2000s: it was organised by Transtar Promotions at the time and they also organised similar events all over the Midlands. I believe the new organisers (Gemini) took over when the Transtar people retired.

Even if it clashes with POL (which is on a Saturday), as it is a two-day event it could be great for anybody wanting to stay in the Midlands overnight and have something else to go to on the Sunday.
Definitely one to consider adding to the events calendar for next year.

I can imagine the chaos if me and Dist did PoL then stayed in a Hotel do do Motorfest the next day. :laughing2

Peroni and Steak ??

I used to take a BBQ with me to WPFOT/Motorfest, that might entice people to go if we had a stand. :wink3

Something to ponder about mate, got a while to think about and plan it, be great if we got a stand on
there, Sunday might be a bit more appealing to people than Saturday ?
