Hi Lee,

Can I turn up on the Sunday morning and join you on your stand? Seems to be a bit of confusion with this show and the VW show says it is £10 a person to go in which makes it a bit steep with a few of us in the bus!

All the best,

Mark

We don't have a stand due to lack of interest. I think you will have to try on the gate but yeah I agree it could be pricey if you have a few in the bus at a tenner each. Hopefully you can get in as a classic car.

I went along to this today to get turned away. Firstly because I was told you couldn't just turn up on the day & secondly because someone decided it was going to be open to pre 74 only because too many later cars turned up last year.

Anyone with a pre 74 can go to this if they wish another year ( so long as they pre book ) but with that attitude I feel this is one to miss.

I have heard of ALOT of people being turned away, they have quite a bad attitude the organisers, which is why there was no interest for a club stand this year.

Sad really.

Very strange show indeed! I turn up at 9.30 on Sunday morning and get turned away despite driving my 1955 VW, and my mate driving behind me gets waved through in his 1990 Mini Moke because he is part of a classic car line up. I have a good old moan with the organisers and get let in if I take part in the show and shine! So I get in for nothing, park up with my mate in his Mini, and we ignore the show and shine and classic car line up!

Ta for the beer Dougal1971 !
