Coventry Motorfest 2015 May 30th and 31st.

Post by ImpJimbo » Fri Jan 23, 2015 6:44 pm

Last years Coventry Motorfest was excellent. Cars taking over the city centre. Classic Car displays in the shopping areas, stock car racing under the ring road and the Ace Cafe at the transport musuem.

This year they are closing the ring road for racing.

There was a couple of Imps there last year. It would be good to get a few more this year. So I thought that we could try and get as many Imps there as possible on the Sunday. I think there will be a shortage of space so best to get there early. Maybe get there early and meet in the Standard for breakfast.

Looks like a good event, I missed last years but people said it was really good.

Am I right in thinking there is no pre-booking for paces, just turn up, sounds good but if you want to get an imp group together as a display you'd need to assemble somewhere away from the city and arrive together from what I've read about the displays.

It will hard to display the Imps together due to space issues. It may be best to spread ourselves around.

I've heard that the ring road sprint has been cancelled as the legislation has not been passed by Parliament :o
Anyone got any more news :wink:

Quote; Coventry City Council has agreed to the event using legislation introduced in July, which by-passes the previous need for an Act of Parliament to suspend the Road Traffic Act.

Perhaps theyre having second thoughts then? does the route pass by an MPs house maybe? :roll:

H all.

I could do with another couple of Imps for this event. Is anyone interested?

There is loads going on throughout the day including motor racing.

I went last year and really enjoyed it and his years event look even better.

Our stand is just for the Sunday.

We need a count then of how many of each variant is in the club, that will prove one way or the other.
