Unfortunately at this time I cannot give any more details around this event, but we have some ideas in mind and I need to know how much interest there is going to be in order for this to get the green light.

Details are:

Sep Friday 13th - Sunday 15th (3 day event, 2 nights)
Camping
Show and Shine
£30-£40 per ticket (no accurate number yet)
Location will be central (Northamptonshire)
Centred around getting the car community together
Japanese marques ONLY
More details to be worked out later

Assumptions:
2x Under 16's free with paying adult tickets
Dogs are allowed, but to be kept on a leash
BBQ's are allowed, raised off the ground, communal fires - no idea at the moment, but maybe small fired raised off the ground.

There is no need to pay anything at the moment, but we need an idea of how much interest is shown in this event. Please ONLY put your name down if you would actually go if the event is to go ahead. The more people that commit, the better the chances of it happening.

As JAE has flopped big time this year, this looks to be a new big show that we can all get involved with. Let's get this list going as time is an important factor here...

  2. @Mark (Madfish) & Amanda (2 Tickets)

It sounds like a great idea but I'm not sure I'm the target audience for this thread. With a family, a business etc it'd be hard to commit right now to this dates.

It could be me by myself, me and my son or me, my son, wife and dog, all depends what happens between now and then. So will say I'm interested but unable to commit right now if that's any help.

Maybe but a Friday is hard when not in the school holidays as I don't finish till 6.30pm and would have to be sharp away on the Sunday.

Arriving late on Friday would be OK.
Leaving on Sunday would be whenever you wanted it to be.

@Chris T - knowing that you'd be interested but can't commit is enough, as it's a "potential" ticket that helps towards the decision making.

@Hoobajoob - usually we do help one another out, will share products and knowledge etc. We helped @E51ZRider out at JAE last year.

Again, this is all if's and buts, but if we can get a committement to going if it does go ahead, providing what I have said doesn't change, then it helps towards decision making.

So if I show up does some one make my car shiny?
Last year my car was cleaned on stand, then with assistance repaired front bumper...as did @RobP

then wrapped rear lights and spots

plus little bit of paint and some interior cleaning

wouldn't have been possible without the clubs members.

I'm at work on the Fri and Sat but could poss look at coming straight down afterwards (still be about 9pm before I got there though). Would I still require a full weekend ticket?
