Yesterday, 11:24 AM

Posted by richyb66 in Events

I was reminded of these last night, three dates for 2018 at the Thurlaston Showground, Leicester, LE9 9JE.

 

Dates are east to remember all Bank Holiday Mondays. The first on 7th May clashes with Stoneleigh but the other 2 are 28th May and 27th August 2018. I went to the August one last year and it's well worth a visit. More details are here:

I will add them to the Calendar and try and post reminders for the second 2 nearer the dates.

The Uk Kit Car Club Track Day.

Yesterday, 09:09 AM

Posted by Matt brown in Events
Ok from what has been said over the past few days and things I have been thinking about since I joined the club on making it better I have a suggestion that I would like input on.

I would like to organise a track day for the club which has a discounted price for members and also include non members at a higher price to fill the remaining spaces.

What I would like to know is, what track would people like to see? So I can contact them to try and organise a deal for the club

My idea is in theory anyway is to get a price for say a 30 car track day and have it so the club members get first dibs at a £30 discount to the non members. This would encourage non members to join the club which would save them £10 on there day and make more money and gain members for the club. Which will also inturn gain the club more stage presence due to people talking about the day on social media by sharing there experience and photos.

How does everyone feel about this?

Brighton Classic Car Show, June 3Rd

25 Apr 2018

Posted by nelmo in Events
I thought I'd try arrange something down the bottom end of the country, for a change.

https://www.classicm...hton-motor-show

I'm happy to do a block booking and to plan a fun route down to Brighton from a convenient start point, if anyone is interested. It's worth going just to get free, allocated parking in Brighton :-)

I realise it's a long way for most of you and I'm not sure if we have many southerners on here (the members map shows quite a few) so I may be going by myself :-) but any interest?

Posted by unclechief in Events

Thanks to one of the members (Ivan Farrington) for pointing this one out.

 

Where:    Stamford Town Meadows

When:     Sunday 26th August 2018, 10am to 5pm

How:        Registration will open Saturday 28th April 2018

 

I believe a few have attended this event previously, i have contacted the event and they are happy to give us a designated area for a club stand to allow us to all exhibit together. They have stated that each car will need to register individually when registration opens on 28th April 2018 (This Weekend) and clearly state RHOcar The UK KIT CAR CLUB on the application.

 

Please see link below to the event and registration.

Hope to see a good turn out and put our stamp on the event.

 

cheers 

 

Keith

Eosb Discussions

23 Apr 2018

Posted by unclechief in Events
Just to clarify the EOSB may not happen this year. The reason being is that the usual venue we use could not give us our usual dates. The only two dates we were given were the 30th June and the last weekend in September.

A lot of feedback was given to me from last years event to which I thank all that have it. One of the main things was that people didn't not want to camp in September and the general concensous was that an earlier date would be preferred.
Unfortunately the 30th June which was the only other date that was available clashed with another event date that had been set.

I have been looking into other venues since last year but the cost is looking too big. There are a few I am still perusing and am hopefull we can put something together but at this time I have nothing to promote.

I would have liked to have been promoting the event early and had flyers etc to hand out at stoneleigh and other events to try and get the number up but without a venue not a great deal to promote.

This is a real shame as last year numbers were up and costs were down after a lot of effort was put in.

That said there are still several camping weekend events available and hopefully a few more event/ gatherings that can be organised. I will keep looking at possible venues for this year and if I can find something that fits I will Set things up.
