NEC Classic motorshow cancelled

PostPost by: Spyder fan » Mon Sep 21, 2020 1:41 pm

I just received an email stating that the NEC Classic motorshow is now cancelled

https://www.necclassicmotorshow.com/art ... ate-210920

Looks like pretty much everything will be off this year, just waiting for the Castle Combe Autumn Classic to be cancelled as well :cry:

THE ORGANISERS OF THE LANCASTER INSURANCE CLASSIC MOTOR SHOW, WITH DISCOVERY, HAVE DECIDED THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE BUT TO POSTPONE THE 2020 EVENT, DESPITE PULLING OUT ALL THE STOPS TO TRY AND MAKE THE ANNUAL SEASON FINALE HAPPEN.
Show Director Lee Masters explains: “Having been given the greenlight by government for organised events to resume from 1 October, we were so excited at the prospect of bringing the community back together, with all our COVID-secure measures in place to create a safe and controlled environment for all involved.

“Although the latest government update hasn’t changed this possibility, it is currently under review and has created uncertainty for both our exhibitors and visitors. With the weeks now counting down towards our open date we still don’t have the clarity needed from the government.

“Add to this the prospect of local lockdowns still being in place and the communities’ understandable concern about what an indoor event experience will be, even with all the precautions we’re putting in place, we have taken the decision to postpone this year’s event.
Kindest regards

Got my tickets for Castle Combe yesterday, looking forward to the first and only event we will go to this year.

The CSCC also have a race meeting at Castle Combe on 24th October, plenty of Elans competing although I will be racing in a '59 MGA.
