EVENTCITY March 24/25th 2012
Weekend of the 24/25th
March Cheshire & North Wales Area was invited to represent the OC at the
Eventcity Classic Indoor Show by Cheshire Auto Promotions.
This is the second year
of this indoor event and this year they had extra capacity in two halls. Situated
on the same site as the Trafford Centre, it is an ideal location as there is an
excellent motorway network and FREE parking with an entrance fee of ten pounds,
or seven pounds with a widely available fliers voucher.
Just over eighty car clubs
were in attendance over the weekend with some of the finest examples of the
likes you would only see at the NEC Classic.
We, as an area,
self-funded this stand. We organised blue carpet to be laid, perimeter fencing and
chain link acquired and even manufactured our own under wheel stands for the OC
As you can see from the
pictures, we didn't do too badly. The quality of the four cars on display was
exemplary, and all our efforts were not in vain as Ian McHattie (aka Speedy)
walked away with a 1st in the Japanese Classic class with the stand
winning a "Club Stand Highly Commended star award".
The attendance was good
over the weekend considering we were having some crazy hot weather. The
interest from the public was excellent and many had shown an interest in
joining the club.
Next year, hopefully with
support from the OC events committee we can attain a higher standard and maybe
get in the top three for club stand award.
