That’s a shame Kozzy. Was a great show and unique it’s location - great pity!

found out that Chatsworth is no more as well :roll: to many turned up so they have moved it to Nottingham,
I cannot moan to much as I have never been a member of PCGB, I stand by what I said they have been ruined by modern cars, the committees of these regions really should have thought about modern and classic days, as both venues were really good choices. hope some one on here can maybe relay this to the relevant committee secs

That's a shame although I have to admit the thought of being amongst a load of modern Porsche "products" didn't exactly thrill me as I despise the great majority of them :x:

Each to their own, I really liked the mix of different cars from a 60 year time span. Interesting to see how a massive modern compares to a petite classic, but the design cues remain through the years.

that's not what i'm saying, both locations are popular destinations so how do you resolve this, one way is to divide it over two days or the other way would be to limit how many attend. in both circumstances the loser would be the charities that both events sponsor as the location is the reason for attendance.
TIPEC at Rhyl does not appeal, in the same way that Llandudno does, so what's the answer John as we continue to lose events that are local'ish to us.
that's why I said the relevant committee needs to think about it, I want to support both with my cars and support there chosen charities

Ah Kozzy, I was more replying to Martin above saying he didn't enjoy seeing the moderns. But I agree if excess numbers are the reason for them closing, something should be done. It's a pity in Llandudno because the promenade is massive and I've never seen it anywhere near full (down to paddling pool), nor have I seen any traffic problems as there tends to be a trickle of arrivals coming in all day, combined with a trickle of leavers as people head off for a variety of reasons. If speeding away from the event is a problem, the welsh police are not short of speed (sorry safety) camera van's so it might prove a valuable income to both the charity it supports, and the local constabulary!

Seems baffling to me!

Non of the above reasons, the harbour master was concerned over the amount of people attending and it is his responsibility to ensure safety

PCGB have plenty of internal issues from top to bottom having read a thread over the weekend. Not unlike any club. Members v's committees v's directors. Cannot please everyone all the time by the looks of it?

This is well said. I know personally how hard it is to get events rolling. Sometimes limiting your audience can be catastrophic for turn out.

I know a couple of years ago they limited Chateau Impney Hill climb to classics on the PCGB stand and their turn out was very low.

Still looking for more events in the North West by the way. Leads would be helpful.

therein lies the problem for us in the north west, we have lost key and low key events to the degree that only one or two are left. Plenty of non specific events like Cleveleys, a dearth of Porsche specific, even VW events are not as common.
Ive got to the point that I feel Beaulieu is local to me in Manchester :roll:
