The date is Sunday 30 July.
With the support of CA Automotive and other forum sponsors on EvoTechnik, we managed to secure the Bruntingthorpe air field for a mega meet. Hopefully, we'll be able to perpetuate this annually and start something similar to Bimmerfest in the US. So your support is greatly appreciated
We have space for 100 cars, we are in the process of negotiating with the grounds to see if we could have BBQ as well. If not, we'll look into the possibility of burger vans etc.
We are also negotiating with PBMW for them to cover the event. The day will be free for all, but we will be running a collection for the "Shooting Star Childrens Hospice", so any donations, big or small will be very much appreciated and will go to a very good cause.
So pen down the date. It'll be a great day out for all.
Here are the full details.
In short, this will be the largest Evotechnik meet and will be the first of what will hopefully be an annual event which will grow and grow.
This event is brought to you in conjunction with CA Autmotive, who are the premier sponsors for the event. CA will bring some of their project cars along and will no doubt have a number of things to sell.
In addition, all other forum sponsors will be represented. Ice Advice and goods will be available from Ice Cold Audio, Teddy will have his tent selling a lot of CF and performance goodies and Gibson and Boyne will be on hand to provide leather retrim and interior car care.
The best part! This will not be just your average meet, there will be a show and shine event which is open to ALL attendees, a chance to show off your pride and joy. To reward your efforts, there will be prizes from all the sponsors, to give you a taster, Andy of Ice Cold Audio will be providing a CD tuner as one of the prizes, so we're making it worth your while to make the effort.
Entrance to Bruntingthorpe will be free, however, this means no track time as otherwise we will be charged for marshall costs so it's a pure show and shine, good time meet.
There will unfortunately be some rules. As this is a non-driving event, any incidents such as burn-outs, doughnuts or any other anti-social driving behaviour will be dealt with very very strongly. Revving your cars to show off your exhausts and intakes is fine as will showing off your ICE installs, it's literally just the anti-social driving that will be on lock-down, so please respect the forum and wear the sensible hats.
Tell your friends, your colleagues, other forum members, anyone to turn up and have a great day out.
Food will be hit and miss on the day, Bruntingthorpe open at their discretion on Sunday's so there may or may not be burger vans available, so please, make your own arrangements (just in case). I will find out if BBQ's are allowed. (If any member owns a burger van, then it's your opportunity to make a couple of quid )
as mentioned, the day will be free, however, we will ask you to dig deep into your pockets and splash a bit of cash for charity. EvoTechnik will be running a collection for the "Shooting Star Childrens Hospice", every penny raised will go to the cause in the name of the forum.
We are also in talks with Performance BMW to cover the event. As you all know, PBMW came with us on the recent Ring trip and got two high-end feature cars as a result, so by turning up, there's always a chance of a) being in the mag as part of the coverage and b) get a feature if your car is well modded (PBMW discretion of course).
