Default Are we due another big meet?

Its coming up to 10 years since we arranged the big M Coupe meeting at Gaydon BMW Festival 2010 is it time we tried to get a big number 30+ again?

We have had good numbers attend Silverstone but not in recent years with numbers slowing dwindling, is there demand for a big event or not?.

If anyone has any suggestions for a Summer 2020 event e.g Gaydon with BMW Car Club (if they agree) Silverstone appears too expensive for the masses . Cumbria show? Idea is for a M Coupe meet not a combined Roadster event.

Money in the forum for events so anyone have any ideas please post up

I'd certainly be up for that Dave. Silverstone is indeed pretty pricey once you factor in accommodation for the weekend etc, but I'd still be up for that if that's where was most convenient for the majority

I would rather it be anywhere but Silverstone as its too busy and expensive in my opinion also Gaydon Festival is during the summer school holidays so not a good time for many.

Maybe we need to look for a new venue.

I'm definitely up for it. What about Donnington, it's fairly central if you want a large get together with owners maybe coming from Scotland, southern England, Wales etc.
Still the biggest mass meet up of Z3 MCs in 2005 - 63/67 cars. Just got to pick a suitable weekend with a car race meeting to attend.

I was also going to suggest this due to location

Donington is an option due to its location but not sure about the venue itself i.e dedicated area or car park ? tie up with racing makes it a really busy time and not sure what racing people would want to see .

Keep the ideas coming.
