  3. Hi all here is the email confirming the details and how to book a space costs £5 in advance, but you do get a bacon butty, tea or coffee and entry to some competitions ... think Tim could stand a good chance of winning the noisiest induction!!! We are glad you might be interested in displaying at Northern motor Madness 2 on the 14th Sept. This year we have changed things slightly learning from our first show in 2013. We have changed the times of the show to 10 am to 3pm so allowing clubs to go for runs after if they so wish. We will allow cars to set up from 08.30am with all being in place for 10am where the field will be closed and from then no movement so as not to endanger spectators. Cars may not leave until 3pm so that visitors will see all cars on show. To show your car is a fee of £5 with this is a voucher for a bacon bap and cup of tea/coffee from Jersey Farm and also the entry into one of the awards on offer. You can pay by bank transfer (preferred method, see below), cheque or paypal in advance to secure your place once entry has been made you will receive a confirmation email. Nearer the time you will receive a parking space letter to show you where to park in advance. Clubs wishing a meeting point and gazebo this will cost £5 also to secure an area for this. We greatly hope that you will be able to chat with the public about your vehicle. Refreshments with be available from the hotel along with the carvery served all day and licensed bar. Other concessions will be available in the field this time. Trade stands again will be invited cost £50 for the day including 2 persons bacon sandwich/coffee from Jersey Farm As mentioned awards are to be given at end of day (these have to be confirmed) but along the lines of best in show, best interior, most unusual vehicle, maybe noisiest induction, sound system etc any thoughts on what these should be would be greatly appreciated. We already have a fun fair rides, race simulator, beauty caravan, hog roast etc. booked You will bring your vehicle to the show at your own risk and when on Jersey Farm Premises Jersey Farm will not be liable to any damage to it. We remind you that motoring is dangerous and that care is taken when entering and leaving the premises with special attention to visitor’s walking around. If you have a lowered car a special route in is available with special area for parking. Care must be taken with personal belongings and should be kept secure at all times. We hope that this year will be bigger and better than last and that we will put on a fantastic show. For vehicle display bookings please emailcraig.hope@btopenworld.com For other enquiries email mark@jerseyfarm.co.uk
