Classic Motor Show (indoor), Event City, Manchester.

#1 Post by 220 GSi turbo » Sat Dec 15, 2012 5:36 pm

Unfortunately we were not successful in getting a club display for this event, but the organiser would be happy to consider one or two individually-entered 200/400s.

The theme of next year's show is 'Passion for Power', so a GSi turbo or well-modified car might tempt him to grant a space.

More details at http://www.cheshireautopromotions.co.uk

The show is on 6th and 7th April, with cars being put into position on the Friday night and not moving again until after the show closes on the Sunday.

If it was my choice, I'd go for the red GTi or the 420 Turbo.

But it would probably be worth you sending pics (or the link) for all of them to Stuart at Cheshire Auto Promotions and see if he would welcome any of them. I think the R8 definitely needs to be represented at that show in one form or another!

Last week got rather busy, so I didn't get the chance to meet up with Ken and collect the banners.

Had a look at your car Saturday morning and a few times on Sunday, but you weren't around at the time........ Thanks for getting the car there, hope it attracted plenty of interest :clapping

Ken will be bringing the banners to PoL on Saturday: if you are intending to do Tatton Park in June, maybe you could take them home with you.

TBH I was so busy that weekend I just dropped the car off (late) and collected it Sunday (even later).

When is the Tatton one, do I need to jump though hurdles for that one as well or just turn up.

If its just turn up and the sun is out I'm there :D

Tatton is organised by Stuart at Cheshire Auto Promotions (same as Event City), so your best bet would be to drop him an email.

I believe you need to pre-book if you want to show your car. He will probably allow a club stand for that one if we can get anybody else interested in going.
