Chris Evans' Car-fest

£60 a ticket? :huh:

http://www.carfest.org

If there are club stands shall we attend? I think the ticket price will put a lot of people off though, this seems to be more a music festival with cars than a car show per se. No bad thing but I'm not sure it will encourage 'car' people along.

Chris Evans involved so it will be a sell out. Lots of radio 2 advertising and £60.00 isn't too much compared to the music festivals. Christ the UEA wanted £32.00 to see the band James play. Considering they haven't done anything for a good few years I sent them an email saying "how much! you having a laugh" etc...Laugh was on me as they promptly sold out :getmecoat:

Not sure what it is but he just grates on me, like nails down a blackboard, plus The Feeling are on the bill, thats enough to put me off.

I've no idea why The Feeling are I'm afraid but that's the thing I enjoy about festivals, hearing music I've not heard before or wandering off to find something else to entertain me if the music is offensive to my ears.

Looks like I may be the only one from this site that is going to the Car Fest then.

Found out yesterday that my Esprit has been selected for one of the "magnificent seven" hill climbs in the anniversaries group.

I'll add updates once I get the drivers' pack.

What little I know is the display cars are not the kind you or I own and enjoy, the Porsche allocation was a handful of very rare and expensive classics owned by tweed wearing pipe smokers and everything else was refused.

You should have mailed them as Andrew Bibblebetts Farquar, and told them you were arriving by helicopter while your men trailered the car over from the museum.

IMO this was an oppertunity lost by Chris Evans as he could have had fields and field of petrolheads and their cars AND hundreds of people wanting to see them and get a bit closer than the 'don't touch' signs on the exotic and rare.

Hi Bibs

I had given up hope last week (4 months after originally submitting my car details) but I was lucky enough to meet a Brands Event co-ordinator at the London Club Golf Live event. He gave me his email back in May and fortunately passed on my enquiry to a colleague dealing with the Car Fest.

I hope Lotus have a club group representation from somewhere

Hi Peter, I also have tickets and we are camping for the weekend. Looks like it will be a great event and has something for everyone. Happy to meet up if you like, by all means pm me.

Cheers

Martin

Again I submitted my car but not some much as a dicky bird. I agree with the above this is a missed opportunity to have a day where Classic & Sportscar fans can get together and have a great day enjoying cars and music. seems to me this was more about the music than cars.

Hi all, been lurking now a basic account member, not a Lotus owner at present ( current car V6 Morgan) £60 sounds a lot but I've booked the Lotus factory tour @ £69 so perhaps thats the going rate

Looks like my inclusion in the hill climb is for real as I've been asked to provide a car picture for the show programme.

You were right Martin about the camp site options but I've been told participators will have their own camp site allocation but at a cost of £100 to cover the water, electrics and shower facilities.

Of the 14 hill climb categories I'll be one of seven cars celebrating an anniversary.

For those interested I've received my driver's pack together with some daunting BRSCC rules despite the hill climb being a non timed "procession at speed" over 0.9 km course.

Nick Mason will have 7 of his vast collection taking part and participators are required to report for scrutineering this Friday.

Shame the weather wont be as good as it was for the Brands Hatch festival.
