Hi Jay

Sorry, I haven’t done anything about it yet.

Personally, I feel it is getting expensive, and also turning into a car park for the big clubs, with less and less classics on view. However it is always a pleasure to meet up with fellow Lancia owners and enthusiast, and is one of a few venues to ‘ showcase’ the marque in the U.K.

Any thought from other members?

If there is enough interest, I would be compelled to make an application, unless someone else would like to take it on?

Cheers Charles

Too expensive Shocked Good heavens, you'll have your post removed  without permission next, in case it discourages others if you're not careful, as happened when I made a similar comment a couple of years ago! How much is it now please?

Hi Brian Smiley , I did a bit of digging on the website and it's hard to work out exactly what the club ticket is ... however , as it's 2 for 1 and the saturday price is Ł63.00 I'd assume that , with a friend , it's Ł31.50. This is more than I remember ( around Ł20 each ) but going for the whole day and seeing a band in the evening ( Status Quo ) it was good value - but very very long ( basically the day is 600am till 230am for me ). Looking at the programme, Friday would be my preferred day this year ( given the music ) and that I was able to go ( which I'm not sure about at the moment )
I understand Charles' PoV - there's a lot of large clubs there but it is great to show off our cars and it's probably the best place for that.

Hi Charles

I agree, I thought last year was partially bad with the infield display, very few interesting clubs or cars and awash with early 2000’s German machinery. Unlike previous years, I especially remember the 80% of all remaining road worthy Pipers on display, the car that blow my mind when I was a young kid.

But saying that, anyone who has been the access you get to such a range of cars is just second to none, and with no crowds plus the occasional decent band, having seen the Stranglers now waiting for them to book the Skids.
   
I can check the prices through the Monte Consortium, I can also I buy thickets through them if needed, just need to put a couple of faux buttresses on the Flaminia.  Wink
