BNG 2012 8/9th September 2012
2 day event based at Sherburn Aero Club (near Leeds and the A1) including the use of a 2 mile long runway

Saturday will be “wheels rolling day”
TVRCC exclusive use of a 2 mile long test track/runway all day in pre booked time slots (£20 per 1/2 hour slot)
Several organised runs out around the lovely local roads with the chance to stop for a Yorkshire country pub lunch.
Use of Clubhouse with bar and café open all day and TVR BBQ
Large area for TVRs with easy viewing of aircraft all around.
Trial flights in aircraft and helicopters as well as in a Tiger Moth Bi-plane are planned

On the Saturday night a party is planned and choice to either camp or use local hotels (at discounted rates) with coach transfers available

Sunday will be the “static day” and main gathering
Elements such as concourse, loudest car, furthest travelled etc with the awards to be presented
All cars together on a TVR area in sight of all aircraft movements for picnics bbq etc

The idea is to keep it cheap enough for everyone to afford (and the chance to stay for both days with camping)
or for those looking for a more luxurious weekend, there are several local hotels with swimming pools etc.
Coach transfers for those wishing to drink

We hope you will be able to join us and enjoy the Yorkshire hospitality

Richard “Trickie Dickie” Lee
Regional Organiser West Yorkshire TVRCC

Sounds great. Is it for PHers far and wide or TVR owning PHers?

Thanks for this.

It is a TVR Car Club National Event
- having said that the Club is for "anyone with an interest in TVR"

Obviously the track time will be allocated through the Club and therefore for TVR owners and Car Club members only

The Privileged parking area will be TVR only
although there will be alternative parking for non TVRs (maybe not in sight of aircraft tho')

Everyone welcome from wherever (on this planet obviously)

I do believe no noise limit
No times just max speed through the trap smile

That's it .... £20 coming BNG way.

Helmet required?

I doubt I'll beat my 174 but it's fun to watch the speedo and willing your car on.
