Hi all,

Following a certain amount of positive reaction to my previous thread, Peter and I have decided to put plans in motion :)

We are planning a West Midlands meet at the Heritage Motor Centre, Gaydon.

Here is what you can expect:- http://www.heritage-motor-centre.co.uk/

The date for our meeting will be SATURDAY 19th September 2015.

As I understand it, the HMC will provide us with dedicated parking, etc. if we can get enough cars to attend.

Although I've entitled it as a West Midlands meet, I hope it goes without saying that all are welcome :D

If we can get sufficient numbers we will hope to get sponsorship as well.

Please make a post below if you want to go and I will keep a running list here.

Perhaps you would be good enough to annotate your post to say which vehicle you will be bringing please?

at the moment the tours for the factory are coming out a fair bit of money £45 per person unless i can get one of my contacts to get us a deal but will need to know confirmed members and others   wanting to go as spaces are being  booked  up fast ( waiting for a phone call today so will keep you updated)

regards Ron

Well I am up for that - dates I am committed elsewhere are 9, 10, 16 & 17 July and 20 - 27 August, flexible otherwise. Not sure which factory is best? Presumably their technology centre is out of the question as well?

gaydon is for more of a family thing with picnic areas cafe with a fair bit to do though the day so im up for gaydon myself.

 

the factory tours was an option that one of the members chucked in as a maybe  but this has too be a week day tour and at £35 per-person if more than nine is booked and if that date is available plus has to be paid up front to confirm booking

Thanks Ron :)

 

It is next to impossible for me to get a day off during the week at the moment as I have some of my staff on long term sick. So much so, that I'm having to lecture and run tutorials myself :lol:

 

Happy to be a focal point for the admin though.

 

I live within easy walking distance of the new JLR plant in Wolverhampton. I that one of the factories you were considering by any chance?

So is this instead of Gaydon?

No Paul.

 

A visit to Jaguar was always a no no on the same day as the Gaydon meet.  When I was working I had a friend who had worked at Jaguar and was then a tour guide in retirement.  They never were at the weekend as the factory is always closed for maintenance.

Just had a message back from Gaydon and they tell me that a group of 12 or more will qualify for group entry rate of £8.00

 

Furthermore, they will provide parking and signage.

 

Anybody want to add to the numbers?
