Default 300-series meet - Brooklands Museum - Sunday 13th May

Join us for the first of hopefully a series of more regular 300-series meetings, beyond the annual events we've held for the last few years. To kick things off, we revisit the Brooklands Museum (primarily containing aviation and early motorsport exhibits), the venue for our 2013 'national' 300-series event. We will aim, once again, to park in the paddock area in front of the museum.

All are welcome, but it would be good to get as many 300s there as possible. If you plan to attend, please reply to this thread We should be able to get a group discount rate (£12.50) for entry to the museum, but this typically relies on more than 15 people attending. The standard entry fee is £15. If you haven't visited before, it's an extensive collection, and well worth the entry fee.

cheers

James

Hmmm I am tempted to go but 130 miles is a bit of a jaunt and I'm not exactly flush with cash

Are you going to organise any meets around the West Midlands this year?

I am seriously looking at coming to the event, think it will be less than 300 mls each way, perhaps worth making a nice weekend of it with the old car.
Been to the Brooklands museum before, it is well worth a visit!

130 miles each way?! Some days I do, and some days I don't! Joking aside, we can certainly look at something closer to home. Got any ideas of possible venues?

It'd be good to see you if you can make it, Robbert!

cheers

James

Hope it goes smoothly with public liability, was a nightmare when I tried to organise one.

Haha, I would normally do it but at the moment i am so broke I couldn't afford it.

We could have a meet at Shelsley walsh during a breakfast meet then go for a drive afterwards.

Malvern hills would be another nice scenic place to meet.

Cotswolds? Anywhere there, it is all beautiful but Bourton on the water has a car museum.

Castle/manor houses if that interests people.

Good suggestions, thanks!

Steve - the club has PLI, so it's not a problem...but filling in the paperwork is a bit of a faff!

cheers

That wasn’t the problem, proper jobsworth there, the issue I had was public liability for the cars stationary (not a problem) whilst parked for the meet.

Car insurance for when they are moving, hence driving in to car park at Brooklands.

What the jobs worth wanted was insurance for when the cars entered the car park as technically they are part of a show / event as on private ground so normal car insurance wouldn’t cover it and wanted moving public liability insurance, if that makes sense.
