Nice one Mike.

INFORMATION AS IT COMES TO ME.
WE MUST GET MORE CARS THAN THE MARCOS CLUB wink

1. BACKGROUND
It is a great pleasure to welcome you to the Windsor Castle Concours of Elegance. We hope that you will enjoy the experience and we certainly look forward to seeing your cars. These are your instructions to where you will need to be, at what time and information to make sure you have as smooth an access and exit as we can manage. Much of this plan has been done in accordance with the Castle, the Police and the Crown Estate (managers of The Long Walk). It is a high security area and Windsor is a busy town, so it is much appreciated if you could adhere to the requests set out in these instructions.

2. TIMINGS
There are 4 car clubs arriving on Sunday, and you will be parked in order of arrival on The Long Walk. A plan of the site is attached to this instruction. We strongly request that the timings given below are
kept to, to prevent congestion at the access point to The LongWalk and to allow sufficient time to park without blocking the driveway. All these timings are based on the fact that the show opens at 0930 and visitors will be using The Long Walk for entry into the event. For those who have time on their hands before the event opens Windsor High Street is very close by and also the Crown Estate catering unit will be on hand offering the sale of refreshments.

DESIGNATED ARRIVAL TIMES
i. Octane Owners 0800-0820
ii. Bentley Drivers Club 0800-0820
ii. Jaguar Drivers Club 0820-0840
iii. Vauxhall Heritage 0840-0900
iv. Marcos Owners Club 0840-0900
v. TVR Car Club 0840-0900

For the avoidance of doubt these are the times when you should be at the entry point from Albert Road the LongWalk. If you arrive early we will pull you forward onto The LongWalk and ask you to ‘park up’ on the side to await your slot, so as not to cause a traffic jam on the Albert Road.

I know still good effort so far. what we lack in numbers we making up in noise and style. Its up on the Thames valley section and in the main events section and on TVRCC. I think people might be getting a bit sick of the emails I have sent out :P

When is you're car coming out to play ?

I'm back on Saturday, taking it straight over to Calvin's as I keep badgering him to get it up on the ramps and have a second opinion on any work that might need doing on the chassis in the near future (fingers crossed, nothing!).

I'm not driving it 100 miles to not take it the further few miles to Windsor! smile

I'll definitely be in the Griffith, it's running beautifully, it's just coming up to MOT/Service time and wanted to run a few things through Calvin.

I'm displaying my Aston at this event on Saturday. Just a note, if you're planning on entering the actual concours in the Castle grounds you will need photo ID (and a ticket of course) and I've been told no jeans or trainers. The club displays are outside the Castle arranged along The Long Walk - you should have received windscreen stickers to display as it's not a random turn up and park type event. Of course you may know all this but I couldn't see it mentioned in the thread. smile

My mate's in his XJ220 with the Octane 60, and you're encouraged to dress from the era of the car. I am not sure "no jeans or trainers" will be strictly enforced there smile

It will be a nice day, I'll be in shorts and flip flops smile
