Title: VBOA 2018 National Rally, Market Harborough
Post by: VXL V6 on 27 November 2017, 16:49:31
Question for Keith really - Will ABS be attending this next year? I quite fancy taking one of mine along (maybe two  ::) ) and I'm sure a few OOFers will attend as well.  :y

 Any OOFer who isn't an ABS member can camp in the general area. You can plan a meeting point and arrive in convoy so you can camp as a group if you so wish

  Eventually, there will be a list of Hotels, b&b,s in the surrounding areas put out by the VBOA so those that don't camp, can use one of these and get the weekend ticket if wanting to be there more than one day

 Hi all,
VBOA have produced a site map but it only shows the clubs area and autojumble area
There is a one way system in operation around the site this year
Only revision to the prices previously stated is that one nights camping is 27
Glamping is available from 244
All details and pre booking is from LMF
If OOFers want to camp together, arrive in a line at the gate so when you get into the general camping area, you can all set up together
I am booked in to the jumble again due to the large collection of other Vauxhall/Opel parts I obtained

As it does indeed only seem to have affiliated clubs display areas I'll give it a miss.Still it saves me a stupidly early start and about 100[fuel, admission,food and possibly something from autojumble]for a day out.
Title: Re: VBOA 2018 National Rally, Market Harborough
Post by: VXL V6 on 04 June 2018, 21:32:16
Unfortunately I think i'll be limited to one day due to unforeseen circumstances. Is it still possible to display the car in the ABS area for just a day?

Went last year,same as all the car shows that I attend....a bit boring if the truth be known. I've started counting the cost i.e fuel,wear and tear and things like admission charges and the shitty weekend traffic.....staying local is the new plan. :y

Nope....got work coming up on the Omegas, got a problem with the a/c and brakes on one, and at least one needs a diff change and perhaps the Elite as well with 240k on the clock, courtesy of our man in Huntingdon. :P Still got a Monaro on the bucket list which the Omegas might end up helping out with on  the finances and the parking  ::)

Turns out I couldn't have made it anyway[unless I'd gone in the V70]but then I figure with petrol/admission/something to eat and drink and quite possibly something from the autojumble it would have been close on a 100 day out :o Hope it was a success and at least the weather was good :y

It was that company form die Faterland what bring over brand new original Opel parts. Pricey (ie: often more expensive than it was new, even factoring in inflation) but shouldn't knock them as they have 'everything', even Monza inner wings, which only a few years ago were literally unobtainable.

Anyone has a scabby irmscher wheel for free that I can re-cover let me know  :D

I'm still looking for both a gloss wood and silver Irmscher steering wheels with radio controls with no luck... Can't even find one to refurbish - the coloured part can be repainted but really need the leather bit to be as good as possible as it's harder and more expensive to put right.

I must get round to fitting my wood one that's been sat in the garage since the day it was rebuilt.
