We are attending Sports Cars In The Park at Newby Hall again this year, on Sunday 05 May. The show will be held at Newby Hall and is one the largest and best meets in the area attracting about 1000 sports cars with a fabulous range of exotic cars to admire. There will also be a number of related stalls on the day. Newby Hall was designed by Sir Christopher Wren, with some of Britain's finest Robert Adam interiors. Newby Hall is home to a wonderful collection of Chippendale furniture, Gobelins tapestries and classical statuary. With 25 acres of award winning gardens including one of Europe's largest double herbaceous borders, an enchanting woodland walk and a miniature railway, younger visitors will also enjoy the exciting adventure gardens.
Tickets for displaying cars are £7.00, with each extra occupant costing an additional £7.00. This is cheaper than the usual Newby Hall entrance tickets. Display tickets are only sold in advance. On the day you will only be able to buy standard Newby Hall entrance tickets and park in the public car park. To get your tickets go to http://www.carsinthepark.org.uk/ and click on ‘Tickets’. Remember to select ‘BMW Car Club GB’ or you may end up parked amongst Audis and Volkswagens.
Keith Bates will be organising the Northern Concours (BMWCCGB members only) jointly with the Eastern Region at Sports Cars In The Park. A regional concours is a very informal affair, where cars are judged based on how well your car is presented. Originality is not part of the scoring. Age and mileage are taken into account so daily drivers are not disadvantaged compared to garage queens. There is no cost to enter, and there will be prizes for the best cars. If you want to enter the concours please sent your name, membership number, and car registration, model and colour to Keith at firstname.lastname@example.org
