already spoke to Jon about this prior to this years to see what sort of response people at the classic gave
there has also been a bit of a chat on face book about doing Zedfest for it also
I would like to throw in the hat the NC500 tour

I agree too, Silverstone would be a great venue, the only downside can see unless the committee get to work on the Silverstone classic organisers might be the cost of entry for members.

I also don't see why it couldn't work as a joint meet with CZR, Donny always seems to work OK?

NC500 definitely on the to do list.

I know a few people doing that in the next few weeks.

Just spoken to Kathleen Yule and she told me that the NC500 has turned into a replica of the M25 with the amount of people now doing it and also convoying over from abroad its a bit busy now

Donnigton, Silverstone or Brands would get my vote.

Driving to Scotland doesn't really appeal.

I second that.

Would be good to have a parade lap that shows off the full Zed /ZX range.

My view is to combine it with our Donington event and include the Classic Z Register guys as usual.

There is a race meeting to entertain those that want it, other car clubs to see and them to see us, some hospitality facilities (but a bit basic) and it's central for England. If we hold it 'up North' or in the South West we run the risk of poor attendance.

For those wishing a circuit lap (slow parade) well they do that there too.

Silverstone is so big, flat, bland and expensive.

The main downside is that rough cart-track.
