Back Home 2013 is on the 13th/15th September and will be on the promenade adjacent to the North Pier where the event was held in 2006. On Friday night there is an international firework competition on the promenade and Saturday is static displays and concours etc. Sunday will be a series of demonstartion runs on a circuit on the lower promenade.

Demonstration runs?

What does this mean exactly?
I guess its not a timed straight line sprint as last time.

The sprint in 2010 lost a significant amount of money so we sought, and have got permission, to run cars round a figure of eight circuit with a chicane in the middle to control the speed.
We intend to invite cars to run that are different and Loud!We are only just sending out invites but hope to include such cars as a Speed 12, Peter Wheelers 5000M, a Tuscan race car, a Tasmin race car,some LS engined TVR'S, a turbo charged Chimera,a classic TVR race car,some group B rally cars,etc

We hope to run cars from 10:00am until about 15:30 with a break for lunch

The viewing, will be excellent as it directly overlooks the course from the upper prom and is right next to the North Pier.

The course will be on the light brown concrete area adjacent to the sea in the photograph

Will have to get this booked in the next couple of weeks providing there is still space in the hotel. We had a great time 2010.

Hi All, At my last check on the 9th July there were 71 rooms taken on the Friday night and 85 on the Saturday night, so it is filling up nicely.

Hey Dave
i cant make it as i am going to a music festival (yeah i know).
I would consider having a PHer or TVRCC member come collect my car and take it along as long as they are insured and trusty enough.

Hi Derek,
You will be listening to the wrong aural stimulation!If you can get some one to just bring it and put it in the line up that would be good.If you trust someone to drive it even better!. I am letting my Son in Law drive my Tasmin race car ~ MAY HAVE TO BOLT A BLOCK OF WOOD UNDER THE THROTTLE PEDAL

IMPORTANT UPDATE:

The event on the Promenade is CANCELLED due to the adverse weather predicted.

The latest forecast is worse than the last- with greater than 50mph winds and >95% chance of very heavy rain all day.

Some Cars will be in the car park at the deVere hotel on East Park Drive but after consulting the traders and demo car owners there will be no trade stands erected there or demo cars as suggested on Friday.

We are very sorry but obviously have no control of the weather!

Hope everyone who came to the event yesterday enjoyed themselves - we did!
