Damnit, I've just realised I'll be in the US when this is going on. I was looking forward to it as wellūüėÖ I don't think I can easily transfer my ticket if at all. Getting a refund looks like a hassle over a ¬£20.00 ticket.

I bet you could chuck it at someone else and they'd never notice. For example, I've booked in with the P6's reg number, but may end up taking the Series up if the P6 is in bits. The ticket is paid for, surely nobody on the gate is going to pick a fight over what car that ticket arrives in so long as it's the correct age for moddun/classik parking.

That's true. I may as well give it a whirl. Hopefully they don't up the ticket scrutiny all that much.

Anybody want a ticket?

Taken a gamble and bought a ticket for the civic, considering it's still mostly in pieces all over the house it might have been a bit ambitious...

The organisers have just released a statistical analysis of the past entrants and it looks like doom blue is more popular than autoshite beige.

Linky

Anyone here got a Concours entry this year?

Enjoyed this last year and keen to go again but the adenoidal ‚Äúwell that‚Äôs not unexceptional‚ÄĚ chat that it brings utterly gets on my tits.¬†

Also have nothing to bring but that’s easily solved :D 

Honestly, it’s fucking absolutely riddled with it

Looks like the 97 limit is just for the concourse right? 

If I rock up in a 99' 528i SE with a baby shit brown dashboard do you reckon that might be to modern/premium to get into the classic/unexceptional parking?

I'm not sure how it works but they gave me show tickets for my V reg CRV last year

If anyone wants a classic/shite parking ticket for nowt, let me know.

I don't think I can be bothered with it this year and I don't want to risk getting home too late (or not at all) for work the following day as it's the start if the most important 2 weeks of the year.

Genuinely hope it's not as hot as today, just spent the morning/lunch at the Motorist and it was effing hot, it's 26c in the shade up here. 

Probably not good for cars with questionable cooling systems either.

Was just reminded of the moment we were gathering for a pic of the fellas who attended last year (think @MKT is the only one with an account on here) when Jon Bentley arrived for a chat, lovely bloke and a staple from childhood for me with The Gadget Show & Fith Gear

I'm planning on taking the Capri this year. I'm a bit worried that people won't see a Capri as unexceptional - although it's a 1600L, pretty much as unexceptional as they come. Oh well, what's the worst that could happen?

Moany sods on FB gatekeeping what they think is "Unexceptional". Got that last year in my Audi despite everyone who came to speak to me being all very interested and kind.

It had velour seats and hubcaps. It was a nice car back in the day albeit one that was a bit "dull", certainly not a Turbo Quattro with all the toys. 

Ignore the gatekeepers, as long as you don't turn up in a 911, I think you'll have a ball.

I'm sorry, I hate the festival. A few people on and off this forum have asked if I'm brining anything and I won't be. I'm sure you'll all be devastated.

This used to be an under-the-radar, ego-free hobby, and this has turned it into (or is attempting to) another shiny bonnet fest while people play soggy biscuit with a Citroen ZX or something. 

Right, that's everyone's evening, ruined - I'm off to bed.

@TheXUDfiles  I would have agreed with you until I went to my 1st in 2018.  I didn't like the sound of it so didn't go to the first couple.  Once I'd been you couldn't keep me away.

Yes there are polished cars but there's plenty of more honest looking chod in the classic parking which is well worth going to see on its own.  The atmosphere is wonderful despite the terrible music and occasional silly costumes.  

There's a lot to see, some of it really rare.  The people are far nicer than the usual classic and sports car crowd and best of all there's Autoshitters all over the place to wander round with.
