Hi Lloyd,
I've been to this a few times and it is, in my opinion, very good.

Nice to see an event in the North of the country.

Do we just turn up, or is it a ticket event ???

To show your car or just go along? To show the car, there's a form to fill in on their website, guess you just pay on the day to attend.

I think if you show the car you get in free.
If you just turn up you have to pay but "interesting" cars are given thier own parking area (as with the pageant of power).
Admission is in any case reasonable (about £8) with free parking.

Sorry for the delay
I have got the SRV8 chassis I have been told by a few people that most of the Fibreglass bodys will fit with a bit of adjusting,my mates bought the fibreglass body off ebay had a look at it looks ok but always interested in anybodys comments.
I will probably be at the show from dinner time onwards let me know what your driving would like th have a chat with you there

Cheers

Stick some pics up if you need any advice on how to get it to fit, not much that someone hasn't done before on here.

I'd be going to the show in a Dax blue/white stripes, G485 MUX, as per avatar. Pretty sure I'll be there, just figuring out if we can get there the night before and indulge in a few beers. See you at the show
