Title: Fastlane 2012
Post by: nic038 on 12 January, 2012, 10:46:50 AM
Fastlane 2012..Sunday 13th May......

believe they are on facebook too, under fastlane show 2012 or fastlane supercar show 2012

I attended this event last year as the sole lancia representative.  
At present it is just a pure park up and wander around event and is really just a huge gathering of expensive metal and exotica for petrol heads,featuring numerous car clubs, with trade stands also in attendance, but the organisers are trying to expand each year.(good place for a meeting,exchange parts etc.)
On the plus side extremely friendly event, and within walking distance of the tourist town of corbridge in northumberland,there is a huge club house next to the displays which looks out onto the area and serves both hot food snacks  and drink,and the website lists places to stop over.
No charge/fee to enter for exhibiting cars and just donation asked for which the money made goes to charity.
you must register as a car club or individual though to book space and gain entry.
As said no fee to enter the display,and no restrictions on how your car looks (standard,modified,rally prep.) but there is also a concours competition with variuos awards including best club display.

Looks a good show.  A quick look at my shift rota indicates that I will be off, so should be able to be there.  Perhaps you should contact Bruce to see if he can muster more North East members!

Good turn out for the show this year with cars turning up  from n/e Lancia Motor Club and Stratos enthusiasts making up a well recieved joint club marque stand. (although unfortunately we lost a lancia beta to mech failure on route which needed recovery.)
Some good praise for the Lancia's that attended so far as well
from pistonheads web site :

The cars for me were the cobras and lancia stratos

the Lancia showing overall was excellent
