Is that question aimed purely at bauble or all and sundry?

If you want, start a thread for RR, it can be plugged into the calendar if needed. For balance will have to add the London Excel show as well! (Which would likely be my choice, or neither ..... )

John, you beat me to it!

You have to wonder about the two shows being on at the same time - madness, surely?

Absolute madness, John, but how about we split the RR post off in to a new thread, as Mike suggested?

Certainly is madness.

Only guessing, but now that RaceRetro is organised by the same outfit as the NEC Classic Car Show I am wondering if they will do a similar thing to the Excel shows & bring the two together in October. It would make quite a lot of sense.

I've been a regular RR attendee in the past, but the Excel show has appeal for me-

Cheap day return by train and docklands, no car needed.

Access to the Classic show as well.

Sponsored by Octane- they usually do a good job.

Most race organisers I have seasonal contact with will be there, rather than RR.

Or, as I said earlier- neither!

Well I will definitely be at RR, but not sure which day yet. Looking forward to seeing the Group B cars doing their stuff, even if it is a bit Mickey Mouse.

I hope they don't combine RR with the Classic Car show at the NEC in November, sure I'd like to see more competition cars at that but i prefer the bespoke nature of RR, and ike the chance to go to separate events at opposite ends of the year.

I won't go to Excel. A pain in the butt to get to, whereas at least Stoneleigh is in the middle of the country.

CSCC will be having a stand at both RR and Excel, despite the logistical challenges.

The location of either show works for some and not others! Cross country from here is slow by road and even worse by rail, hence NEC and Stoneleigh never at the top of my 'visit' list!

I see there are a few exhibitors splitting themselves to be at both shows. Good for them, sure it will not be easy.

Agree that RR needs to be at the start of a season, not at the end. Am sure organisers must realise this.....

Excel is good for me, 15 minutes by car, or a bus ride and the cable car across the river, but I probably wont bother any way.

Well its going to be RaceRetro again for me on the Saturday, being not far away from Coventry makes it a no brainer, plus the the live stage is always a great watch.

They are all daft, the show you want to put on something else at the same time as is the ridiculous overpriced garbage at the NEC. Not a rival show, that is cretinous to the point of asking if these people are actually real.

A dumbass decison like that means I will not go to either on principle, RR has been falling of a cliff in recent years after a great start, and if there is another show on the same time it will be half empty.

I do wonder at people I really do.
