Yes, they are one of the more efficient auction houses!

Just to add my 4d' worth.

Four of us made the RR trip on the friday, easy to park/get in etc. not a bad show & a little better than previous years. Came away happy with a few goodies.

Sunday morning 10 of us go up to Excel on train (no probs, suprise suprise)
All get in on E' tickets thanks to our friends at QUINTECH

Motorsport side was the show for us, the polished to death cars the other side didn't float our boats, certainly not the Classic car show that we are used to.

All in all would we go to london again ???? Certainly not based on turnstyle

RR on the other hand is a resounding yes by all.

RR seemed very well run internally this year and thanks to my friend buying a 'VIP' parking pass we got there early and sailed in. However the free for all parking madness with large queues has been apparent in previous years so I am not surprised it continues. That is an unfortunate side effect of the site but I think could be alleviated as I am sure there are at least 3 entry points to Stoneleigh?

The Excel organisers may try harder to 'undercut' to tempt trade and footfall next year if what has been alleged about how the show came about is true but for now RR seems perfectly safe.

Just another observation on Coys, I have still not seen results from Autosport.
And that was 2016
On their web site there are loads of completed auctions with no results.
How long is taking to get paid now?

I wouldnt use them again

A Facebook post by the RR organisers confirms that RR 2018 will be a week later than Excel - which certainly makes sense.

The release also claims that RR had a record attendance (21K) and the auction took more than 1M more than last year.

Looks like both shows have now confirmed 2018 dates-

Excel 15th to 18th February (assuming HMI and Classic show combined again.)

Race Retro 23rd to 25th February

So with any luck we won't be having to repeat this thread!
