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