Festival of the Unexceptional 2019 - free camping available

Recommended Posts

All my cars are a bit too new yet a bit too old and a bit too rough anyway to look either like a modern daily, a cla**ic or FOTU fodder. Presumably there is a general car park where These mongrels park?

 There was last year, but as people have said, venue change. You could come to the field of dreams and get a lift in with someone that way though. Last year Brodders couldn't get parking, left his 75 on a verge with a notice saying it'd broken down, then flagged me down for a lift in because he recognised my car!

Great- I’ll do that

To be fair it was a plausible note to see in the window of an abandoned Rover.

It's probably still in the glove compartment, so will likely be put to use again this year if the Omega doesn't make the cut.

I’m now planning to come to this... just need to decide which car to bring. 2CV or Saab...?

 

Are they fussy about checking reg numbers if I buy something else between now and then?

A-Frame 2CV with Saab. Hire attractive person to drive other vehicle and look like one of life’s winners?

I'm thinking of staying at Premier Inn in Tring on the way up, as journey 130 miles for me each way. I know that's 'pint of milk' distance for are Scottishshire folk, but it will also be nice to arrive with all my fluids topped-up.

Maxi booked into general classic parking but may end up in the special class for cars with significant anniversaries instead :)

 

Don't worry about changing cars between now and then - it's happened before and Hagerty said to just email them so they can change the reg on your booking.

Finding a hotel closer to Buckingham means you can visit the campers and gathers at the  Field of Dreams!

There is clearly a glitch in the website codering   8)

 

I have been able to book 8 people in, across 4 cars, all in my name.

 

2 on chod ticket 1 for the Safrane

2 on chod ticket 2 for the Princess

2 on spectator ticket 1

2 on spectator ticket 2

 

The flaw in all this is I don't have enough friends.  And only one pair of legs to do the pedals with.

      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.

      Wednesday 20 March 2019 SUPER SPECIAL INTERACTIVE EDITION

      ***************************************************

      Righto, shite fans of Norn Iron,

      A suggestion has been put forth that a mini-meet of sorts could be arranged for those of us perched atop this enchanted rock, to strengthen bonds and ogle at terrible, terrible cars about to be inflicted on some other poor bugger.

      Venue is: Ballyclare Car Auctions, Dennison Industrial Estate, Ballyclare BT39 9EB

      http://ballyclarecarauction.co.uk/

      Date is: Wednesday 8th August 2018, from 7pm onward

      http://autoshite.com/calendar/event/52-northern-ireland-mini-meet-ballyclare-auctions/

      Deep-fried items of varying degrees of danger are, apparently, available onsite for those who wish to test the strength of their stomach and other major organs.

      So pop along, in whatever vehicle you fancy, for a bit of craic and to participate in the ever-popular Crispiest Wheelarch Spotting Competition.

      I'll be there, I believe The_Equalizer will be there, and a few other expressions of interest have been indicated from local shiters.

      I may even be wearing my newly-arrived Autoshite t-shirt (courtesy of FilthyJohn) to aid recognition.

      Drop a line below if you reckon you fancy coming along!

      Dat.

      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).
