Default Forthcoming Events

Who's planning on going where?

This year, the only one I've got in mind at the moment is Exeter at the end of the year as i should be done by then:
http://www.kitcar-shows.co.uk/exeterkit.htm

I should also be going (without car) to the Highbridge vintage vehicle festival this weekend. If i can find out any more details about it or even it's location it, as the signs by the motorway are rubbish!


I'm already pondering next year and at the moment the shortlist is:

21/22 April 2012 - Bristol Classic Car Show - http://www.bccsl.co.uk/ (it's only 25 mins away for me down nice country lanes!)

Summer 2012 - Mark Moor International vehicle festival - http://mmivf.yolasite.com/ (it was a SUPERB show in 2010!)

6/7 May 2012 - Stoneleigh - http://www.grosvenorshows.co.uk/html...tor_Shows.html (if the weather is good, as it's quite a trek for me)

Summer 2012 - Hampton Ferry - http://www.madabout-kitcars.com/foru...ead.php?t=2939

Eventual list will obviously depend on what day-passes i can get from the present wife.

Anyone else going or planning on going anywhere interesting and we can start thinking about all meeting up?

WE ARE HOLDING BACK FROM ATTENDING TOO MUCH MORE THIS YEAR TO GET SOME DEVELOPMENT STUFF DONE...

I think we will go to THE REVIVAL , fantastic , inspirational show...and we are definitely doing EXETER...Hoping to go with a bigger stall this year.

We only had one car last year , but , time permitting , hoping to have at least one spyder , maybe two , a 550 and a G-46 at some stage of build - probably a rolling , dressed shell.

Looking ahead to next year.....I am hoping to go to the Detling Show with a completed car!
I know Gary was there last year, but 2012 is on 08th and 09th April 2012 and is the 22nd year running in Kent. http://www.car-shows.co.uk/detlingkit.htm

For all you "Westoners" its almost a trip to Europe, as its always billed as the European Kit & Sports Car Show.

Now there is a thought! a Le-Mans Classic trip

At least that would mean that I won't have to drive another 1000 miles next time I want to have a look at a Sammio!

Le Mans Classic www.lemansclassic.com 05-09th July 2012
Track opens Friday 06th July 9.00 am and closes Sunday 08th July 2012

If there were enough going (min 10) then you may be able to get "club" entry but applications would need to be submitted by 31st January 2012.

Tickets are on sale from Mid-November.....alternatively I suppose you could tack onto the Triumph sports Six or local car clubs.

Hi Baz ,
It was great to meet you at the weekend - I really appreciate and am impressed by guys like yourself prepared to travel a long way to see the cars ...Its a great compliment to me that you feel its worth the journey....I hope you liked what you saw and heard and hopefully we can do some business !!

Perhaps the West Country posse should come to you next time !!!

Thinking of taking the 46 to this one on the trailer .....will need to check thats ok and I don't get relegated to the back of the visitors car park !!

If we can get body fully fitted and maybe bonnet in place....

Wonder if my '95 s10 Chevy tow truck qualifies as a classic ? !!

I'll be there quite early on in the day as it's only 25mins from me.

If i'm finished painting the Spyder this weekend (minor cracking issues) i'll try and get everything back on an get it MOT'd next week and possiblly take that if it's dry.

If not then i'll be taking the sensible car and my two lads.
