What's on in the North Cotswolds Region?

My MR2 will actually be SIX on 29th Feb 2012, being 'born' on 29th Feb 1988!

'National' Events
MR2 Mk1 Club Summer Event, Shenington Airfield, 25-26 June 2011
See this thread (http://www.mr2mk1club.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=7464) To include camping, BBQ, possible Saturday runout, and a trip to Supercar Sunday at Heritage Motor Museum on 26th. Gary Brightman is organising this, but we're helping out as locals!

26 June 2011 - Supercar Sunday (http://supercarsunday.co.uk/) at Gaydon
Attending as a club means we are entitled to 12 free car passes and 18 free individual passes (save you £11 each!) plus free entry to the museum (another £11 saving) Track runs available at £20 including photograph of your car.

The Silverstone Classic, 22-24 July 2011
http://silverstoneclassic.com A big event for the club in 2010 as our car was 25 so we were allowed on track with the big guys for a 'parade lap' (ahem!). Also includes the Retro Run for a few quid more. £80 for 2 for a weekend of racing and posing, with infield(ish) parking. Good fun, and highly recommended! Early bird tickets end soon, and prices then increase, so get in touch with Ken Salmon soon!

Other MR2 Events
The Midlands MR2 guys meet on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at The Harvester, Swindon Road, Kingswinford, DY6 9XA at 7.30 until closing. We're hoping to make the May event. (see the Midlands forum for more info)
