8th - 10th Nov: NEC Classic Motor Show
We have been successful in getting a stand at this hugely important Classic Motor Show and for 2019 we are in Hall 8 on stand number 320. Our stand is adjacent to the Honda S2000 Club stand (S2KUK) so we hope to display a literal wall of Honda S cars between us! It is 20 years since the S2000 was launched so the cameras will be on both the new and classic cars.
ABOUT THE SHOW
The Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show (With Discovery) returns to the N.E.C., Birmingham from Friday 8th — Sunday 10th November. This is the biggest Classic Car Show in the UK and apparently the biggest gathering of classic car clubs in the world!
In 2018 we had no less than 25% of our total Club membership (plus their other halves, friends and relatives) attend so we would love to see you all again! Don't forget the massive Autojumble which DOES sell parts for your S800 and N/Z.
If you want to read more details about this massive Show please visit their website at https://www.necclassicmotorshow.com/
We have a discount code for cheaper tickets on the Saturday and Sunday, plus of course anyone showing their car gets in for FREE. For our exclusive Club discount code please click here, although you will need to be signed into the website as a current member to get the code! To sign in click 'Access' then 'Sign In' on the header band at the top of the web page.
We have now finalised our display of cars and it includes an incredibly rare Honda N360 as well as a convertible and coupe S800.
PARKING OR TRAIN?
If you do decide to join us over the weekend its best to arrive early as there can be big queues to get in off the Motorway! Personally I use the train which also avoids the somewhat hefty car parking charge. You can simply walk into the show from Birmingham International station. If you do come by car then make sure you have a car full to mitigate the parking costs — assuming your friends/family will chip in of course!
Parking costs at the NEC.
Following a lot of gripes over the increased parking costs in 2018, which I subsequently found out, is actually out of the hands of the Show Organisers Clarion, we have had a communication offering cheaper parking.
Their message reads...
"We realise that some of your club members may have commented about the increase in the NEC parking charges last year. Please let your members know that they can save on parking as well as their tickets if they book in advance this year!
Park at the NEC for £12 (£16 on the day)
Book in advance at: www.thenec.co.uk/visitors/parking
NEW special rate at the NCP Car Park 5 at Birmingham airport, park from 8am — 7.30pm for just £9. This Event Special must be booked in advance entering the code Classic19 at: www.ncp.co.uk/prebook"
This is great news from Clarion. If you are travelling alone to the Show also consider using the train as you can walk in under cover from the Birmingham International station.
