    events for next year

    hi all nw members and club members in general , now being the new organizer for the nw iv been looking in to great new event for next year and being has we all have a brilliant time at the race track events / car shows i will be entering the club in to car fest north and the gold cup for next year if they will have us ( bill is helping has well as always ) if we get these places we will need members support to put on a good show and turn them in to regular events and these shows will be as good as silver stone . so watch this space members i will try my best to organize a very active calender for 2014 with the help from bill , greame ( lakes and north run guru ) and yourself the members .

    ps tommy don't sell your car unless your replace it with a mk1, camp fire stories wont be the same mate they are legendary and entertaining is a understatement .

    Car Fest North! Now that sounds like a good idea Gary

    Will it be a similar set up to Tatton where exhibitors get a pass to the days they show their cars and camping is de rigueur?

    Camping has got to be mandatory hasnt it?! I read elsewhere that this year it was something like 60 per exhibitor which personally I would have no issue paying given the charity payments, standard of the cars on show and the bands they get to play there.

    IS that 60 all weekend? In which case that's a bargain surely?

    I think so mate, but I am going off some unverified info I read on another forum so could be completely wrong!

    camping is a must for this event to get the full atmosphere of the show , the only snag is 1 we haven't got in yet and 2 its only one week after silverstone show so if you want to do both shows it will cost around 250 pounds to attend both shows ( tickets , fuel ,food .etc ) but money well spent for 2 major weekends away .

    I am happy to lead the Lake District Run (though we should try not to clash with Mothers Day next year) and the North Pennines Run (even though it cancelled this year I drove 75% of the route last weekend and it really is superb). With regard to Tatton I can only do Sundays as I work Saturdays and it causes a major upheaval at work if I have to take a Saturday off during the season. As my car only really gets used for club runs and a few local runs, and I primarily keep it for that purpose, I do not really consider it a show car and such I would rather use it for runs out rather than take it to shows and festivals.

    Gary - Let me know what dates you suggest.
