I shall be organising the event tent and stand for the show once again this year. I'd like to make a big show for the 50th anniversary!!!
Do get in touch if you are planning on coming or bringing your noggin group to the event.
You can get more details of the event at http://www.doningtonhistoric.com/visitor-info/ or see Slice 278 pages 56 & 57
There will, of course, be a deal for club members - details when we have them

Hi,

I saw the advert in the latest Slice, looks like agreat weekend and I'm interested to bring my SE6A. Please could you advise if there's any more information on tickets and prices for club members yet?

I checked the Donington Historic website which says early bird discount finishes 31st Jan, then says to conact your club for more information.

I shall see what interest I can gain at High Peak Noggin for you Malcolm, hoping to be there in my GTE assuming I've actually got it back on the road by then

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

You may have noticed my Coupe is for sale, so will not be a Donnington!

Apologies for any inconvenience
