We're pleased to announce that The 2017 National Rally will be held at the Midland Air Museum on Sunday 9th July 2017

The old hands in the club will remember this as an excellent venue we last attended a few years ago. Since then it has increased in size and houses a unique outdoor collection of enthusiast restored aircraft from WW2 to present-day and an impressive indoor aviation museum.
http://www.midlandairmuseum.co.uk/about.php

£6.00 per club member gives us parking amongst the classic aircraft exhibits and free access to the museum. Full instructions for joining, meeting up and parking to follow.

There is a small cafe at the Museum but the excellent nearby Oak http://thebagintonoak.co.uk offers food all day so we have the possibility of a late lunch for those interested to round the day off nicely.Menu's attached .
We will organise this as a group booking if there is sufficient interest.
We'll add detail to the thread as we go but wanted to post the date to give enough notice to schedule it in to diaries.

Although it has taken longer than hoped to finally set on a suitable venue, you won't be disappointed and we are hoping for a good turn out !

Please pay your £6 to the usual address porsche924ownersclub@gmail.com marking it as for the National Rally.

Just checked my photos. Wow, 4 years ago and my car was fresh out of paint, not a mark on the body or wheels. This was the first major journey with the fresh engine too! Pretty much running in speed the whole way up the M5. A weekend or so earlier its was still in bits! How time flies the older you get
