NEC 2018 (Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery)

LANCASTER INSURANCE CLASSIC MOTOR SHOW, WITH DISCOVERY

Friday 9 - Sunday 11 November 2018 ¦ The NEC Birmingham

I have just received our stand offer, so we can start making some plans :)

Hall: Hall 4, Stand number: 4-552

Width: 5m, Depth: 12m, Area: 60sqm

Pillar/ irregular stand shape: No

We share an island with the Rover P4 Drivers' Guild, the 75 and ZT Owners' Club, and..........the Oxford Universities Motorsport Federation (????)
The Rover Sports Register is just behind us.

This year's theme is "Built to Last" (so no K-series cars on our stand, then :mouthshut :laughing2 )

If anybody is interested in displaying their car (needs to be delivered to the NEC on Thursday 8th November, then cannot be removed until after 6pm on Sunday 11th November) please let me know. (You will need to be a paid-up member at the time of the show). We will also of course publish this in The Viking, to give non-forum members a chance to get involved.
I would particularly like to display a car that has covered a very high mileage (150k upwards?) and that remains in good condition.

Excellent news! Put me down as helper for a day, will let you know which one later when you ask for help.

As always my GTi is available with a built to last engine but only a quarter of that mileage :laughing2 (offer is there in case no one else can but hopefully there'll be more than enough volunteers!)

Damn, 224,000 mile Trusty won't be ready in time - but that will have to be rebuilt to last, hopefully.

Keep the offers coming in, folks.......we discussed a few ideas at Gaydon on Sunday but nothing has been fixed yet.

We would be very interested in any race-prepared cars that might be available for the weekend (even better if they have actually completed a race or two! :wink3 )

If you look in the club magazine you will see an advert for the show with a discount ticket offer. Alternatively, if you go to the members only area of our website you will find a similar offer.
