Title: NEC Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show 11-13 November 2016
Post by: johnb on May 29, 2016, 11:24:15 AM
Hi all
I'm really pleased to say we've been offered a stand at this year's NEC Classic Motor Show. Bigger stand than last year, so we will definitely need 4 cars.

We are next to the LMC stand, the Gamma Consortium stand and the Fiat Motor Club.

Please contact me if you have a car you'd like to show. Cars need to arrive at the NEC on Thursday 10th November.

Cheers
John

Hi John

Thanks

Eric

There is a code in Viva Lancia. Not sure how much it saves (19.50 quoted?). Or do John/Tony need help on the Betaboyz stand?

Just over a week to go, John B has 4 superb Beta's lined up for the stand  ;D
We are in hall 5, with the Lancia Motor Club, the Gamma Consortium and the Fiat Motor Club so will in great company.

The discount ticket info can be found in the Forum announcements & news section, as this is a members only section (you need to be signed in to view)

We have decided to take the photo boards along again, so if anyone would like a pic of their car to add to ones we have collected over the last couple of years, please email me a copy and I'll do the rest, just need your name and rough location. email:t_harrison3@sky.com

Here is the floor plan of hall 5:

I currently plan to be there on Friday so happy to come and help.

I don't think the discount tickets work on a Friday from previous attempts.

Hi all
Only a few days till the Show!

On the stand this year we will have the following 4 wonderful cars:
Howard Papworth's Volumex Coupe
Ed O'Brien's Series 2 Sedan
Terry Wood's modified Spider
Gary and Nicole Hopkins' Series 2 Coupe

Sadly no HPE this year, but we've got no room left on the stand now anyway  ;)

Please pop by to say hello and lend us a hand with the stand if you can.

Best regards
John

Superb show for lifting the profile of the Beta  :)
Much better location than last year, with the 3 Lancia clubs together, to the public we looked like one large club.

We received lots of good comments, met lots of nice people, including Tore and a couple of members from the Norwegian Beta Club  ;D

Thanks to Howard, Terry, Ed and Garry for displaying their cars. thanks to everyone who helped man the stand over the weekend, and John B for sorting out the stand.
 
Here's a couple of pic's from the weekend, of our stands plus a couple of Lancia spotted around the show, including a Silver Coupe almost identical to mine.

I'm glad you found the silver Coupe. It's rear end featured in Motoring Research's picture review of the show. Their closing slide was the blue Spider on our stand.
