Given it (Donnington) is the same weekend as Macon then I think getting together with CAR makes sense...Plus Steve has only just finished paying for the (2005?) Donnington WSR...
Personally..I'm planning on Macon...Shame it clashes...

Mr metters can borrow the atmo but he will need to install the AC parts...Macon is a lot warmer than Donnington...

I would support Donnington as an event, but it does clash with Macon, for which I have already cancelled a sprint at Goodwood.
its worth a try, I think CAR is more friendly these days too.

Can you see if it is possible Stephen? I wouldn't mind, even joining up with CAR....


You don't know this but I guess I can tell you we have already agreed to collaborate for at least one event this year so another would not be out of the question.

Keep an eye on the events section. There will be a few announcements for some different events this year.

Can we keep this thread to opinions for Prescott please and I'll start new threads for other events.

At the moment its looking like a big no for Prescott so I guess I will just publish the general ticket code and if people want to turn up for just the day in the new combined parking they can. Think it will probably be more their loss than ours.

Stephen, we (as in "RAOC comp sec" with "Presidential" blessing) have already accepted the Prescott invite about a month ago. Could you please let me know some of your fancy smoke and mirrors words to send off to Prescott to gently let them down know.
TIA

I will let them know nicely that we will continue to be accepting of the invitation but that the entry list may be shorter than usual due to the unfortunate loss of the club display area in the orchard.

They did make the invitation before they let us know of the "changes" to the display arrangements although to be fair the competition and display elements are technically unrelated.

Thanks Stephen, I knew you would have some good positive words.
Sooner should be better, before they start making up a programme.

Yes, count me in for at least one day at Donington

Shame about La Vie - it was my first event with the 5 back in 2014, so where I met most of you guys for the first time, but I agree the flavour wasn't quite the same last year

Really hacked off with the "new" Prescott thing, used to be a really good weekend but gone down hill quite quickly of late. I didn't mind the Rosso thing too much as always been a bit of an Alfa and other Italian car geek as well as the French stuff but what I have really been against the new Porsche's displayed by the local dealership and that is despite being a former Porsche owner, water cooled don't you know!!

So I wouldn't be against Donington and a link up with CAR for the future but I really want to do Macon this year so that is my priority.

I bet you the Porsche stand will still be there even if the Renault one isn't allowed.
