I'm hoping to get to some of these shows, work & weather permitting.
Probably go for -
CITP on 13th May
Ripley on 4th June
I've got Silverstone Classic weekend booked.
Hoping to get to Croft Nostalgia this year & will try & attend the Butterwick Hospice shows, there is also one of these at Wolviston Village ( listed in Morgans yearbook ) on Tuesday 8th May from 5.30 - 9.00. You need to pre-book to show your car though.
Hope to see some of you out & about this year. Didn't get my Esprit until late July last year so missed most of the shows due to other commitments.
Got first decent run planned this weekend ( hoping weathers ok ) off to Whitby / Scarborough then over night in hotel on NY Moors then back home via either Helmsley or Fylingdales. ( Tractor run on in Helmsley on Sundy so probably Fylindales !! )
Don't know about elsewhere but our local council seem hell bent on having us all drive at 20mph everwhere, they are obsessed with speed humps ( that my totally standard height S4s will not go over, what's the legal position with these ? surely if you buy a road legal car you should be able to use the roads without having to scrape the front on these humps whilst driving on them ! ) & now the latest scheme is reducing a number of NSL roads to 40mph, speed kills aparently although I've driven fast quite a few times & I'm still here !
Rant over, drive safely.

13th May I will probably do Fastlane at Corbridge rather than CITP as I know the lad who organises it; he puts a lot of effort in and want to support him
Saw the Wolviston village one but the place is tiny? Not sure where everyone would go. Might pop along even if mine isn't mended.

I must admit Wolviston isn't the most ideal location. I went last year ( or maybe the year before ) & there wasn't a huge amount there & it was spread out. They usually have one in Elton Village & Sedgefield as well, they're are better locations.
Hope this weather starts to pick up.
I was going to try Fastlane as it's a nice run up from here but not sure if the Wife is coming & the flower show is on at Newby ( I think ) so it's easier to presuade her if there's something else to do ;-)

Really fancy Ripley Castle on Monday, supposed to be a break in the current poor weather according to the forecast, fingers crossed.

There's a classic Mini show ( including classic cars ) on at Saltburn by the Sea on Sunday 1st July. There's also apparently an air show on as well along with stalls & things for the kids to do, here's a link.
Only up the road from me so I'll be popping along. It's free as well :-)
