We have been asked if any of you lovely people would like to take part in a new Classic VW area within the NE1 Newcastle Motor Show which is on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th July 2017.
The show had over 100,000 visitors during two days in 2016 and is the UK’s largest open-air city-centre Motor Show and we have worked with the organisers to have a new Classic VW area in the show as it will be greatly expanded this year taking over even more of Newcastle city centre including Northumberland Street for the entire weekend!
To register your interest in taking part please fill in the entry form on the NE1 website via https://www.getintonewcastle.co.uk/ne1-events/ne1-motor-show/display-your-car
NOTE: On question 4 titled “Tell us some details about your car” please can you indicate which days you can exhibit your Classic VW on – e.g. Saturday, Sunday or both.
Also just to let you know ALL cars will be behind metal safety barriers to prevent the public knocking bits off your pride and joy and there will be some nice perks to displaying your classic provided on the day 🙂
THERE IS NO RALLY AT WOODHORN MUSEUM – THE REST OF THIS WEB SITE IS SIMPLY A RECORD OF THE RALLY WE ORGANISED
We are unfortunately going to have to cancel the rally at Woodhorn going forward as there are no obvious ways of raising enough money to cover our increased public liability costs for 2017, whilst still being able to run the rally on a not for profit / charity donation basis.
We had thought we could grow the rally by attracting more sponsors and perhaps taking a percentage of fees for any extra concessions that we attracted to the rally. However after many discussions with potential sponsors and Woodhorn Museum it is simply too difficult for us to make this happen without risking incurring financial cost to ourselves as a result of the very limited revenue streams open to us.
We are extremely grateful to everyone at Woodhorn for letting us hold the rally in 2016 and everyone who helped in the lead up to the show with promotion especially other VW event organisers locally, the sponsors who took a gamble on us and the general public who turned up despite the weather.
Hopefully we will see you at other great VW events in 2017 most of which can be found here: http://www.vwshows.com/shows.php?year=2017
