Donnington Historic Festival - 28th to 30th April 2017

Anyone taking their pre 1990 Scimitar to the Donninton festival can now apply for an infield pass at no extra cost. See some of you there!

if you only feel the tree as you hit it that's oversteer

I'd really like to get along to this. Hopefully meet a few of you there.

For the sake of the club's reputation I'll be parking my old jalopy in the public car park :D.

Hi All
Sorry - we've had a family bereavement - all very messy and four hours drive from my Lincolnshire home, so I've been rather out of contact. I understand that there will be an ad. in the forthcoming copy of Slice, but I've not really had much feedback from Donington thus far and its getting mighty close!!!
Will try to be a bit better at getting on scimitarweb now things have settled down ( a rather little bit!!!)


Too many Scimitars is always one more than you've got and several less than the missus wants!

Sorry, my most humble apologies to Karen at Donington. Amidst the mess that is my life/me emails is one from her with the code on. please call me for the code - my number is in Slice as Noggin Secretary for Forest & Fens (Nots and Lincs).
Look forward to seeing you there!! And apologies for my PPP this year!!!

I have just had notification that they have changed the way that they are doing the lunch time parade laps. It will be on a 'first come, first served' basis and as such we will need to book in advance. There is also a £10 charge per car (irrespective of how many are in the car).
Below is a link to book your spaces - I would very much appreciate knowing who is parading so that I know where we are up to.

Thanks Malcolm, won't be in a Scimitar as I currently don't have one with doors seats and glass in but will be in Saab 900i so will pop over for a chat

I expect to be there in the scim, but probably not doing the parade laps
