If Donington is the preferred place to hold the Samuri gathering then why not hold it at Japfest2 at Donington in June. Better weather for starters and kills 2 birds with one stone. People can still go to the Historic festival or Japfest 1 in May if they want without missing the gathering.

I am with Chris though. The access road is pants!!!

to me the big difference is that the historic is a 3 day meet and Japfest 2 is only a 1 day meet and the longer event seems a lot better to me as a club gathering

The main reason the event is a Donington at all is because of the Historic Festival that runs alongside it. I was never really that into static car shows and thought it gave attendees something to do as well as stand around and talk cars, which proved to be a good decision.

And I'm not into the max power/drift car modified modern japfest type of stuff either, so whilst I can see your reasoning, I wouldn't be organising that.

And although I agree with Chris's principle, I can't do anything other than hope they are already improving the site in readiness for the new season...

You just want an excuse to get away from Mrs.B for a couple of nights and enjoy a few beers with the lads

Easier form of media to engage on with mobile devices, I quite happily use both facebook and the forum regularly however in this instance it was far easier on facebook as it would be for the majority of people.

I'll be there on the Saturday and likely Japfest on Sunday, anyone know if there's a Japfest stand being organised by the club or another Z club?

Incase anyone who has read this thread missed Francois' thread from yesterday about Donington, it does look like the improvements could be in place as early as next year...

I've copied his thread with a link to the full article from MCN below however one of our main greivances seems to being addressed

http://zclub.net/forum/showthread.php?t=28995

The circuit will be re-branded from blue and white to MSV’s familiar red, black and white colours with the existing paddock entrance becoming the circuit’s main entrance, which will be landscaped and smartened up over the winter.

The main internal roads in that area will be resurfaced to improve both vehicle and pedestrian access between car parks and the venue, while the tunnel ahead of Coppice will also be improved to improve access for campers.

I may look into it and see what the interest levels are like.
