I think Gary has already indicated that it will not take place at Nottingham due to potential disruption to daily business? What makes Sytner Sheffield any different? Does it have massive under utilised facilities? I have never been.

I gave one suggestion to Gary, he said he was looking at a number and would advise when he had time about what, if anything, had been decided. I guess we need to be patient, but the longer it goes the more chance it will clash.

Yes, that is why I asked the question was Sheffield different? It would be great if they could accommodate, but it's hard to imagine the view would be different from Nottingham. It's not Gary's decision but his boss. Not much anyone can do, unless they have some alternatives suggestions?

The suggestion I gave to Gary was this:- Silverstone, parking on hard standing opposite the Silverstone Racing Club, inside the circuit. There are adequate toilet facilitates nearby. This would be on a day when some racing would be taking place, offered a number of dates, so some track action to view. Entry on temporary one day pass to the Silverstone Racing Club and use of its bar and restaurant (informal) facilities. There would be some charge for entry and club membership (optional) for the day, but discounted, to be agreed. The SRC has its own grandstand entry via the clubhouse.

I was told by Gary he is evaluating an number of potentials and I left it with him. So there was my suggestion, so we have to be patient and see what may or may not transpire. The Porsche Club has taken one of the available days and seem to think its a good idea.

Note:- this has nothing to do with any other event at Silverstone or anything advertised by anyone else.

Well we are nearly 25% the way through the year and no news. I hope that if and when anything is decided I will not have committed to something else, probably the same for many others. However a number of will be at Silverstone at the Classic in July displaying our cars, see the post on here if you want to join us.
