Club Events for the rest of 2019

Recommended Posts

Hope you all had a great summer and it was really good to see many of you at shows, track days and social events.😁

Just thinking what events we may want to do/ organise for the rest of the year.

We have

Fuel Coffee House meet tomorrow and Yakushi Show next weekend,

but here are few more potential events to think of:

Sunday, Sep 29th: Jap Show Finale at Santa Pod

Sunday, Oct 6th: TRAX at Silverstone

(I know many people don't like TRAX 🙄)

Sunday, Oct 6th: German vs Jap Bfast Meet at Ockham Bites

Saturday, Oct 12th: Action Day Finale at Castle Combe

(we don't usually have many people interested in Castle Combe events)

I am also doing track days at Thruxton on Monday Sep 30th and Silverstone on Saturday Nov 16th if anyone would like to join (both with Opentrack)

Club track day at Bedford last year was popular, we can do it again, good for those who want to try track days for the 1st time (although check your noise level). May be wet (and cold) but its getting reasonably inexpensive.

Would be great to hear wishes and suggestions!😎

Maybe we could take a trip to Brooklands or Denbies vineyard in Surrey perhaps? 
Can organise both. May be a good idea to get some champagne and wine before Christmas as well from Denbies.
Any preferred dates?

Hmm I can't make the 12th, 13th, 19th,20th of October. What about the 16th, 17th November? 

I am at Silverstone on Sat, Nov 17th for a track day (Anyone would like to join?) and would need to keep  Oct 19-20th and Oct 26-27th free for school holidays.

We can always do this instead of SantaPod or TRAX as well.

Its also easy to combine either with German vs Jap if we want - we can convoy from Oakham Bites to Denbies for example and have lunch there (and a tour of the estate if we up for it)

Some more ideas

Denbies

- this weekend  Sep 14th-15th (for those not going to Yashushi show) its Surrey Hill Food Festival. May be busy but we can arrive early

https://fantasticbritishfoodfestivals.com/surrey-hills.html

- don't think its worthwhile going for one of the experiences at Denbies, we can select a "quieter" weekend and arrive a bit earlier top park together.

Brooklands Museum

if we want to select a day with an event:

- Sunday Sep 22nd - Aviation Day

https://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/whats-on/aviation-day

- Sunday Oct 13th - Autumn Motorport Day

https://www.brooklandsmuseum.com/whats-on/autumn-motorsport-day

- Sunday Oct 27th - Autumn Motoring Breakfast

A few years ago one of my old clubs (Hyundai coupes) arranged a meeting at brooklands and we couldn't work out why we needed to fill in a risk assessment and all meet at a certain gate at the same time. Turned out they parked us on display right by the entrance before we all went to the pub for lunch. Was a really good day.

Not sure we fit the bill for the autumn classic breakfast but the autumn motorsport day sounds possible.  I tried to book a club display at that event last year, but they did not return my email.

I have actually asked whether we can get a club stand or at least a dedicated parking space.

I guess we can always meet and convoy to arrive early enough to park together

I tried both e-mail and calls, no response at all:(

I guess we can just try to arrive together just before 9am and see if we can park up.

I will put Autumn Motorsport Day, Oct 13th, in the calendar as a separate entry.

Also asked Denbies if they need an advance notice and whether they can get us a dedicated parking space.

How about 1st or 2nd Sunday of November for Denbies?

Denbies would be very happy to host us and will give us allocated parking space.

Please let me know if you prefer particular date for this. I am thinking Sunday in November as there are very few events then.

Always want to go to Denbies when I was in the trade, but never had time and yet only worked about 20 minutes away!!

 

Can do a Sunday in November depending on which one.......

 

By the way the 2nd Sunday in November is Remembrance Sunday !
