Since this year is almost over, it's time to make plans for next year.
A sizeable AS delegation attended the inaugural event in 2016. Expected to be some half arsed giffer show, to everyone's surprise it turned out to be a superb spectacle with lots of noise, fumes and yes, speed. A return visit to the 2017 event proved to be not less satisfying. For this year, the event was not held in the town of Bromyard, it was integrated with the Shelsley Walsh hill climb, so we skipped it. But next year it'll return to Bromyard and thus we all should go again.

Hammond Microcar collection - FOLLOW-UP PLS READ calling Microcar owners and working party friends/volunteers?By egg
I have spoken to Lesley Cook who looks after the Hammond Microcar collection in Kent (TN12 postcode - between Headcorn and Staplehurst). The original owners founded the RUMcar register/forum.
I have confirmed that up to 20 cars from us (quirkier the better she says!) will turn up on 12th May 1pm for a tour. The 20 car limit is due to only so much hard standing.
Apparently there is a pub down the road for drink/food afterwards.
This is a private collection, so we can only attend at this time and date unless you make your own separate arrangements.
The charge is £3 a head, which I think is very fair. I will happily play banker (yes, banker) on the day.
The limit is 20 cars, but up to 30-40 people. So please put your username below (and any other forum members who will be in the car with you).

Let me know if you have any other questions. I will share this thread with the owner to show our genuine intent.
Who's all going to this, then?
It's this Sunday. 17-Coffees and I have both got our cars entered into the show.
That's a 2001 VW Golf Cabriolet, and a 1995 BMW 316i!
I may even be doing a bit of auto-testing in the 316, could be fun.
EDIT: Mr Coffees has not entered as there are too many 2001 VW Golf Cabriolets in existence, apparently. Oh well.
