Any date idea or location

Sprint or track day would be great bonus.

If it's based round the 2010 event Twenty12 can't go wrong.

Well worth a ferry to join fellow TVR owners having fun

Always partial to a big field and a leisurely wander about.

Preferably in the dry.

Some kind of 'sport' would be good. Sprints, classic racing etc.

Food: something decent rather than chip vans... hog roast would be magic smile

Runs out would be brilliant too. If you want any suggestions I'm sure there are loads of decent routes on the various local forum sections (including the awesome 'Benjj's Yorkshire Nordschleife' smile)

Trickie, I'm not sure we've invited Gemini have we? Isn't this a TVR "owners" event? I know where there's a very nice Chimaera going cheap though!!! biglaugh

We are looking at the last weekend in August to tie in with the TVRs at Harewood Hillclimb
or early September to tie in with a couple of other non TVR events.

Still waiting unfortunately for the venue to confirm our dates and use of a 2 mile runway!!!!

Will post as soon as possible and confirmed with the venue and TVR office

Cheers
