Running out off space on the drive are you ?
Mind you do not buy anything while you think you have a space!

We plan to be there and I believe we have a green 25 Impression volunteering to spend the weekend there (answers to name of Brian)

Your two would be most welcome, Craig (420 T and Cabriolet?)

Would be the cabby, 420 is nowhere near show ready yet.

Second would be the GTI

Do we have an update on this yet, would be nice to get confirmations from them early rather than being dumped in the back as an after thought again.


Last time i went we had a really good position.

Matt has applied for a space there: I am fairly sure it works the same as the NEC where they look at all the applications then allocate space.

The year you took your GTi, Craig, it was a different organiser and he considered that the R8s were too 'new' to have a club stand but was ok with having yours as an individual entry: that's probably why it ended up against the back wall :S

Fingers crossed, we will get in this year :)

WE'RE IN!!!

Stand number 356, which is a 10.5 x 7 metre area adjoining the Metro Owners' Club and near several other BL/Rover clubs :)

So far, I have offers of cars from Dist's fleet (I think the red Cabriolet is a must!), a silver Coupe and a blue 25. Would anybody else like to offer their car for display? We ought to display a 400 "HH/R" or 45 at one of the indoor shows this year, but that could be saved for the NEC if we have nobody in the North West with one.
Setup is Friday 16th September, show is live Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th, with breakdown Sunday evening. As with the NEC show, cars need to be left in the halls overnight: once it's in there, it doesn't come out until Sunday evening :wink3

For those who want to visit, tickets are likely to be much cheaper than the NEC, the show is an excellent indoor show and if family members want to go along but don't want to spend all day looking at cars, the Trafford Centre is a 5 minute walk away :)

My Silver 216 Cabriolet is available for this show as is Nick's Silver Coupe. He only lives a short distance from event city in Manchester.

We still have the BL Autumn Rally in Milton Keynes at the end of September, plus the Lancaster Insurance gig at the NEC in November.

are you still ok to bring the cabby to Footman James, Craig?
we also have Nick's Coupe and probably Paul's 416 GSi.

still needing a nice R3 or HHR :)
