2016 events

#1 Post by Raider » Sun Nov 08, 2015 1:34 pm

Is there a list of the "usual suspects" in regard to events that are usually attended?

I will be going to a number of events etc with my other classic car interests but would like to see if I can squeeze in a Rover specific event too.

On another note, first weekend in August I organise a 2 day tour of the north of England and maybe the Scottish Borders. In 2016 I will make sure you guys know about it and have the chance to take part :)

The 'usual suspects' are:-

- Spring Classic at Gaydon
- Pride of Longbridge
- BL day at Peterborough
- Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at the NEC

With others such as Bristol and Manchester shows plus the Milton Keynes BL day being possible with some help in organisation.

I think the club has also attended the "cars in the park" do at Tatton park in the recent past but I've not been to it personally.

Have I missed any ?

I think the Cars in the Park event is at Lichfield but there is a classic car show held at Tatton Park.

Perhaps we can use this thread as a general discussion/suggestions thread for next year's events and then open up individual threads for events that we are definitely going to attend? Could an admin make this a sticky at the top of the list? :)

I will also add the Practical Classics Restoration Show at the NEC in March to John's list.

I am willing to try to get space at events city , Quite an easy going show ,so I think we will get in .
I will see also if I can get club space at the Transport Fayre at Mancherster Airport Virwing park (where Concorde is)
Both these events are totally free to display and very good

Rimmer Bros are having a Spares Day on Sun April 24th.

This has usually been mainly SD1s but it's not exclusive. Good chance to have a look around (escorted!) and save on any shipping costs if you buy anything - you may have to pre-order so it's just picking stuff up.

They're here:-

Triumph House
Sleaford Road
Bracebridge Heath
Lincoln
LN4 2NA

I'll put up a separate thread shortly to check for interest.

I will be at Pride of Longbridge, BL Rally Peterborough and Event City Manchester. (My Cabriolet is available for display on the club stand if required).
If I can get to any other events I will depending on work.

Pretty sure both POL and MK are non-ticket events - POL definitely is!

You'll need to book your Peterborough ticket individually but put is down as the stand you're attending.

We're aiming to be at all 3 :D
