I'll be there in something.

My 'new' car is on Pirelli tyres, is that enough Italian content to count for entry into the show area?

If it's like last year, and there's no reason why it won't be, there will be a 'dedicated' entrance for all Italian cars which leads you round to the display area where the various groups then park up. All other non-Italian cars are directed to a public car park across the road from the farm.

I'm sure that would work, . When we were in Milan for the centenary celebrations in 2010, we were in the queue to get into the restricted access car park at the Arese museum when a guy rolled up and blagged his way in with a BMW X5 wearing Alfa badges front and rear. Obviously, the security guards were well clued up on what they were supposed to be protecting, .

That's right. Every Italian car that turns up is part of the show. There is a scrapyard just across the road for all other makes.

It's been tried before and Craig "The Rottweiler" will undoubtedly be on the gate and they shall not pass!

Yep, we all went in the back passage way. And it was blinking dirty. But, from what I remember those people with Prancing horses or Tridents were let in the front door and not the tradesmans entrance.
A tad unfair if you ask me when many hours had been spent cleaning ones car.
Maybe some clarity could be sort for this year.

The Ferraris etc. were let in the other way because of the low ground clearance not because of any favouritism. Hopefully the track has been sorted for this year & everyone will be let in the same way.

Interesting, and I hope the track is sorted and no one turns up with lowering sports springs!
It was a good day and was there some footage shot by a drone if I remember correctly. Was this ever put anywhere for us to view by the way?

**Update**

The AROC Committee had a meeting with the Farm Owner last night (Wed 22nd). The issue of the entrance road was the main topic of the meeting.

Work is continuing on improving the road and will be completed in time for the day. All the major bumps & ruts will either be levelled or filled.

All we need now is the nice weather.

Hi all,

Me and my young apprentice are going to come up for this in my Giulietta. (hes very excited about going on the go-karts and giant sand box).

So if there is anything anybody needs (that fits in the boot of a car) then give me a shout.

I can start a thread in my section if anyone wants anything!

Looking forward to this, never been!

Gavin.

We now have meeting points for those that wish to make their way in convoy. Initial meeting point in the West will be the showcase cinema complex just off the M8 at Coatbridge. Would ask everyone to be ready to leave Coatbridge for around 9.00am . For those coming from the East & South the meet point will be the Tesco car park in South Queensferry at 9.30am ....The West convoy will make it's way to South Queensferry to join up with members and will arrive around 9.45am .....Event starts at 11.00am so just over an hour for folks to drive north to Cupar.
