After being cancelled last year, this event is back again. A motor trade show mainly, but with a large number of club and individuals also showing their P & J's. Plenty to see and do.

I have made initial contact with the organiser, and he is aware that we will be attending. I just need to give him numbers nearer the date.

Hi all,

I know that this is a little early, but with being away at Le mans from the 10th -14th it doesn't leave much time to arrange things when I get back.

Anyway, after a break last year the show returns again to the NatWest Rowley Mile Racecourse at Newmarket. I have previously organised and attended with a certain other group ( guess who !) and can highly recommend it as a show. I have a club stand booked for us again this year and now just need you all to sign up to attend !

As normal with some of these shows we will need to be on site and set up before 10 am I believe.

More details about the show can be found on their website HERE

So, if you would like to be part of our club display could you let me have your car details as soon as you can please. I will need to advise the show of final numbers around the 16th I would guess.

Any questions ask away.

Cannot make this one Ian as will be nursing a hangover after going to Poms v Oz one day international at Old Trafford on the previous day. Hope weather will be ok and if Rob does attend he does not wear those shorts!

The 88 and 47 rule.

Sorry to leave this one a bit late, I hope to be there, but depending on forthcomming daughters house move, may get roped into helping out with that. Awaiting the completion date, which is looking like Fri 25th, so that will take my weekend up! Should know for definate in next couple of days.
If so, think it will be in the Griff.

Just had it confirmed that we need to be on site and parked up by 9.15am latest for this event. It would appear that mixing moving cars and predestrians will course the world to end !!!!

I will send round an email later this week, but would propose that we meet at the Tesco's car park coming into Newmarket on the A142 from Ely at say 8.30am ( I know, I know it's a bit early for a Sunday) affraid

Some of us will need to be leaving well before 7.30 Andy. I made it plain in my second post that we would need to be on site and set up by 10.00, as it happens it is a little earlier than this but I don,t make the rules. Sorry you can't now make it.

That now leaves me with 3 cars booked and a couple of maybe's, not really the response I was hoping for. Think I may have to reconsider what events to attend next year. Crying or Very sad

Would we look a bit silly with just three cars though ? I'm still ok for it with or without badge as I don't get out much these days anyway. Sad

Not a lot of option, whether we look silly or not. I have worked well with Mike the organiser for many years now and don't intend to let him down at the last minute, even if it was only me going. Still two 'possibles', so we could increase our numbers yet.

Daughters completion date was set for this friday, so unfortunately won`t be able to make it. Will be in a Luton van instead

Hopefully be finished by sunday lunchtime, if so will come down and give some support all be it with the public

I think the show organisers may well loose a lot of people in future years if they continue with this strict approach with times.
Bloody health and safety gone mad again
I seem to remember at the last show when trying to leave the site a bit early, there were marshals virtually laying down in front of the car to prevent you getting off site

I know what you mean Nigel, but at the end of the day it's their insurers rules and if we choose to attend it's those rules (albeit stupid) that we have to abide by.

I've said very often before that this H & S stupidity doesn't seem to have reached the Yank and hot rod shows yet (thank God !) with cars freely moving about during the show.

As much as I like this show, if numbers interested this year are anything to go by don't think we will be attending as a club again.

Thanks Paul for your recuiting efforts, it's very much appreciated.

I suggest that we meet at the Tesco carpark in Newmarket (MAP HERE) at about 8.30am with an aim of leaving at 8.45am prompt. That way we would easily be in by the 9.15am requested.

? Is that the event in Scotland last year. ?

Sorry that was a bit obscure but on a par with Phil I thought. Let's hope it's not going to be p*ssing down tomorrow though I fear the forecast is for rain.
