The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery: 8-10 November 2019

#1 Post by 220 GSi turbo » Sun Oct 13, 2019 12:20 pm

The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show, with Discovery takes place from Friday 8th until Sunday 10th November at the NEC in Birmingham.

We will be displaying a 213SE, 216 Vitesse, 420 GSi Tourer, plus two 214s on our stand 8-260 in Hall 8.

One of the 214s is the 'sectioned' car produced to promote the R8 range when launched, the other is 'No.1': a British Racing Green 214 GSi that was the first R8 off the production line.

Club members can access free or discounted tickets by visiting the 'members area' of this forum. :D

Top billing on AROnline - https://www.aronline.co.uk/events/nec-c ... show-2019/ - and a good write up in this week's CCW, which also has a report on a (last? :mope ) visit to Longbridge in an R8 and an R3

A photo that didn't make the press...

There was question over the cutting of a cake, as Russ had cut a Montego cake last year, but we had to improvise and Russ cut into one of Duncan's exquisite mince pies.

(NB: no paintwork was damaged in the taking of this photo)

In the taking of this photo... likely, but in the cutting of the mince pie... I don't put any bet! :laughing
