Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 20/02/2022 10:52

Delighted to see this is back on again, the show is over two days, 18th/19th June but the main event is on the Sunday as in previous years.

BVAC at Thirlestane

NB. a slight change from previous years...

While BVAC hoped to avoid fees, due to increased costs and the cancellations of 2020 and 2021 we find it necessary to introduce an entry fee of £5, admitting the vehicle, the driver and one passenger. BVAC Members are exempt from the fee. Viewing of the motorsport event on Sunday is included. Additional passengers will require general admission tickets. We recommend purchasing these in advance at www.sirjackiestewartclassic.com.


They need to know everyone's details in plenty of time for insurance purposes so when I know the requirements I'll ask attendees to PM them to me.

Ok as far as the entry fee is concerned, as above £5 admits car, driver + 1 passenger.

For convenience I'm happy to pay everyone's at once and you can pay me back on the day

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 27/04/2022 07:22

I've sent a PM to all on the list re entry ticket payments - the organisers have requested that money is transferred in a single transaction rather than from each of the (potentially) 10 of us.

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 28/04/2022 23:05

Thanks to all for prompt payments.


Rendezvous for this at the Steading carpark, Fairmilehead on A702.

There may be some who are coming from the south and do not wish to make a double journey - we will have a stand allocated so bear in mind there will be hopefully ten Coupťs eventually parked together.

Steading Car Park

Times to be confirmed later.

Hi Simon - little point me driving up to the RV only to retrace my journey back to the event (I'm only 35 mins away). I could meet up with you all at Carfraemill perhaps?

Yes there is a small car parking area opposite the Carfraemill Hotel/Bar/Restaurant

HERE

where the rest of us can pick you up

Alan_K
Dianne
PaulL...
Rob/Angelo **

Might this suit you better?




** it's pretty much the same running time from you to the Steading carpark as it is direct to Carfraemill, you might want to do the same?

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 26/05/2022 16:45

Assuming we have to be on our dedicated pitch by 1000 then we need to be leaving Carfraemill 0945 latest.

I'll keep everyone posted smile

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 26/05/2022 20:53

Iíll check with Angelo if he has a preference

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 28/05/2022 16:07

If we don't come up and stay in Edinburgh before, I would be coming from the A68 direction.

If you're doing A68 (early doors) then Carfraemill makes sense for you but if you're in EDI the night before we'll see you at the Steading

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 29/05/2022 17:34

Will meet you at Carfraemill hotel ( car park opposite) be there at 0930?

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 29/05/2022 19:05

Sounds good Dianne - I haven't received final instructions from the venue yet but it shouldn't be much different to that
Posted By: G_Man

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 31/05/2022 09:27

Peeps - just so you know, Carfraemill do takeaway tea and breakfast rolls so can always meet up a bit earlier and get the day off to a good start with some personal re-fuelling laugh
Posted By: Alan_K

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 04/06/2022 19:34

The steading is still best option for me
I pretty much want to go straight right from where I am but the roads donít really work that way down here hehe

Iíve took the Saturday night off as well as Sunday so I wonít be knackered coming off a nightshift like I have in the past

Is it carfraemill we stopped at before as I remember getting pictures took across road from a pub the last time we went to thirlestane
Posted By: Rob40

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 04/06/2022 22:01

We'll head up to Carfraemill and meet up with some of you there. Brekkie rolls sound like a good option to start the day. Setting off around 8 should get us there for 9:30ish or sooner

Re: Thirlestane Castle Car Show 19th June - 07/06/2022 12:46

Waiting to hear of official "get-in" times but I'd imagine 0845/0900

Pack was waiting for me when I got home from Viva Italia - quick answer is


"Please make every effort to arrive by 9.00 a.m...."


...which means

Leave: Carfraemill at 0845

Leave: The Steading Fairmilehead at 0805

So meet at The Steading 0800 hrs.


I'll scan the paperwork and post it later on - update - see below

We have YELLOW numbers, and there is strict instruction indicated on the Schematic Map how we should approach our pitch, Y18. Tbh I find them slightly confusing but as long as we stick together and "do as we're told" it'll be fine!

I'll hand everyone out their individual sheets of these along with wristbands and yellow ID plates at the rendezvous points.

Yep no dogs now (definetly seen them at past events) as detailed on the website so unfortunately I'll be on my own.

apparently due to some new rule and regulation change, basically health and safety gone mad as pets are usually more controlled than spectators

I'll be at The Mill for c 0800hrs for a spot o' breaky.

Simon - noticed that it's unlikely that you'll be at Raby so you ok if I take the club banner from you after Thirlestane? I can return it later as I'm basically a short blast down the road from you.

Brilliant turnout of Coupes and friendly owners.

Rambling big site though, which while enjoyable, was a trek.walked 5 miles with my grandson, and that was just the toilet and burger queues.

Good driving roads in the area, easy access and very good value.
There were lots of small owner groups of varying types and ages of cars, so something interesting for every one.

Henry and I will give it a go again next year.

Hello everybody

Here is the link to Henry's video of his trip to Thirlstane.

We hope that you will enjoy it.

This is one of his first videos.

Always great to see youngsters getting into cars

The boat car is certainly worthy of getting into his video as itís the type you usually only see in a museum

Hendry also videoed my puntoís best side so pleased with that!

Iím sure my yellow peril fiat coupe will be back for next years show

No thatís not mine
I have heard thereís a guy who had 2 coupes where your suggesting
Dundonald Road I think itís called across from golf course but they have built a garage so maybe the coupes moved indoors or they got rid of them
