Are you planning on going to a car meet/event?

Postby RayB » 23 Jul 2014, 20:08

We're always on the look out for new meets to attend so if you're thinking of attending one this year please let us know.

Neal and myself were talking about this a few days ago and feedback tends to generate interest. The Coventry meet this year comes via a recommendation from Jonniey. Players last year only a handful went and we're taking in excess of 30 cars this year. Bimmerfest Venlo was just Neilx6 and myself this year but there's interest from over 10 people for next years run to europe.

Basically the moral of this story is if you attend a meet however large or small, please post up about your experience good or bad.

Tallis Mazm3 any feedback on beaulieu?

Should be a blast then?
The event might tank though?
Not sure I'd shell out for it?
But I'll track developments?

Beaulieu 2014
There was an issue with some BMW's from the Dorset BMW stand drifting out of the venue showering everyone in dust which wasnt greatly received. I also felt it wasnt as good as the previous year and the quality of "show" quality cars was a bit poor. Maybe my taste.

BUT, you do get free access to the museum and grounds so you can make a good day out of your entrance fee.

As for changing venue to a tank museum, this has put me off for next year. Part of the appeal was the other things to do at this show and it was held in a place with some fantastic surroundings.
