    Decided to give it a miss. The format of the show doesn't work for us.
    Enjoy if you go, and get pictures to keep Darren happy.

    Seen a list of who has entered, Its not a huge list.
    Don't know if the linky will work:- Dropbox - Registered Vehicle
    There are a few people that said they are going, but not listed in this, so perhaps its not a complete list. I was expecting the show to be bigger. Perhaps space is an issue.

    They want people to meet at point A, then drive down to point B ready for their vehicle classes departure time to convoy to point C the show ground. The first class of vehicles in is the last class of vehicles out. The modern muscle class only gets 2 hrs at the show ground so it's pointless. We would miss the opportunity to see the other stuff and spend more than double the time the car is on display traveling to and from the site.
    If space is such a limitation then narrow the breadth of attraction.
    I'm not going to waste my time and 2/3 tank of fuel for such a short window.
    I hope it works out for them, but equally I hope that a revised format is put into place for next year.

    Sounds like the Horsham show was a good event. Hopefully some of our club members will show photos (Jennie).

    I registered and got a reply to say thanks for registering. That wasn't to say we had been accepted though, just registered. Got another email to say we had got in and our pass colour, along with the timings and where we would be parked for the day. Didn't mind getting the emails as it meant we knew exactly where we needed to be and at what time. The organisers also included local eating places, parking for non display cars and other info. Very useful.
    Our group, Modern Muscle, left the P&R at 11.20 and drove in convoy into the town centre. There were people all along the roads in the town centre taking photos and videos. Loads of people looking at the cars once they were parked too. At around 3pm we got a text to thank us for showing the car and that we were ok to leave when we were ready.

    Having different groups of cars in different parts of the town made it interesting too. And there were other things going on as well, which meant there were other things to look at.

    All in all it was a great show and well organised. Hope to go back next year.

    I have to totally agree! Dean and I received several emails which were full of useful information about the whole day. It was great having a motorcycle escort from the P&R, stopping traffic and covering the traffic lights for us. We were parked in Market Square with the other customs & hot rods. Parked respectfully with plenty of room for everyone to walk around the car safely. The public were extremely interested in all of the cars and I don't think that we have been asked so many questions by people before! The live music was playing on the bandstand, including line dancing and Elvis! When we left, all of the roads were lined at least 5 deep with people taking photos and video, it was such a fantastic atmosphere. If this is planned again for next year and is anything like as good as it was this year, it is a must! We have already registered interest for next year.
    I will try to link my photos for you.

    Glad you enjoyed it too. They got a lot of stick about the arrangements but it worked perfectly. All those cars arriving at 9am with the organisers trying to park them would have been a nightmare. Staggering the arrival made it much easier to get parked. We will be going next year hopefully

    We arrived at 8.45 to leave at 9.00. This worked perfectly, nice and easy tour into the town, parked properly before any of the vehicles got too hot. Leaving was even easier, such a great procession of American cars leaving the town!
