Now then boys and girls. It's that time of year again to start pulling attendance lists for shows together.

The North East Auto Show has had a great turn out over the last 2 years, and last year we won a trophy for best small club stand. We need to go back and smash it in 2020. The event is held at the Darlington Echo Arena, is a ONE DAY SHOW, and is open from 11am until 3pm I think (from memory). Anyone on the show stand needs to be at the venue for around 10am, so we'll have an 9:30 meeting time at the local McDonald's, same as last year.

Tickets are Β£7.50 each and under 16's go free. Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a lead.

Plenty going on, loads of trade stands etc. It's a mixed show, so not JDM only. You'll see cars from all marques. Modified, standard and classic. It's a great show for the true enthusiast.

We'll get the attendance list going, but if you can confirm once you have booked your tickets, I'll update the thread so we know you are coming.

To buy tickets you need to go to https://auto-show.co.uk/north-east-auto-show/

You book your own tickets, not through anyone else, so don't send any money to anyone else for the tickets.

Who we gonna have on the stand this year then?

  1. @Karl & @Pippa - 2 Adults 3 Kids - PURCHASED
  2. @Simon58 - 1 Adult - PURCHASED

We don't get to pick the plot layout mate. Totally depends how many we get on the stand and how early we book tickets etc. I imagine there will be revving, popping and banging all throughout the show though.

Not sure which club it was, either The NE Vauxhall club, Summer Maddness, 5W or E85... but all four are large clubs in the NE.

So we need a large number of Elgrands from the club , think we had 12 or 13 last years a good turn out , but it would be nice to see a lot more of the members attend . Just an old guy having a moan about load music and popping exhausts . I will just lay in the back of the Elgrand and go to sleep. πŸ™ˆπŸ™‰πŸ™ŠπŸ˜ŽπŸ‘

Booked tickets. It states you need to be parked between 8.30 and 9.30am so an earlier breakfast is needed. πŸ”

BUY YOUR TICKETS QUICK
THE SHOW IS GETTING CLOSE TO SELLING OUT

You need 1 club stand entry ticket (ElgrandOC) and then a visitor pass for every adult passenger.
