Happy New Year!

This year, with the new branded gazebo, we'd like to attend several regional classic car shows through the season. Ideally, to promote the cars to a wider audience, we'd like these to be big general shows and not Porsche exclusive ones.

I need help with this. As much as I'd like to, there is no way I can get to every show in every region myself. If you know of a show nearby to you and you're happy to coordinate the members who want to attend, can you post below? I'll then make a list, contact the show organisers and get the ball rolling. Ideally we'd want 4 or 5 cars minimum to justify moving the gazebo across the country.


Lincolnshire
(Mylando) Bourne Classic car show- June 16th


Cardiff
(Tr55vor) South Wales Classic Car Club 19th May

Might be helpful to date the show to avoid clashes and spread them over the year.

South Wales Classic Car Club have their annual Charity Classic Car Show and Autojumble at the Cardiff City Football Stadium on 19 May 2019. I've never attended in the past but it has a long history and is well supported. I'm going this year and would be happy to coordinate if there's any support from other members.
Entry is free so long as applications are received before 10 May. After that it's £10 on the day.

Yay! Trevor is back :woohoo:

Thank you for this. Are you around in June for BCR3?

Not sure I ever left - I just went to the Silverstone Classic in my Jag but I had booked my tickets on the Club code! My N/A has found a new home with another member but I've had an S since July '18.
Unfortunately, as last year, I'll be departing for Spain at the end of May so, sadly, will once again miss BCR3. To make sure of a "dog friendly" cabin on the ferry I have to book 9 months in advance so this year and last I'd just booked when you announced the dates of another run. Otherwise it's one event I certainly wouldn't miss and if there's going to be a 4th in 2020 and you know the dates maybe I can coordinate but I have to go to Spain at that time of year for family reasons.
That's also why I've not attended the South Wales Classic Car Club Show as it usually takes place just after I've left for Spain but this year it's just before.
