Central?

Just been catching up on this thread and can't help comment on how some members perceive Silverstone to be central. Really? have you guys actually looked at a map of the UK (I've attached one). Silverstone could only be classed as central if for some reason the furthest point of the UK is Manchester. There actually is a real place called The North of England and a whole country called Scotland, trust me there is, have a look at the map.

I'm down south and looked at Silverstone. For me it would be really convenient but like imustaveit I checked the map and could not in good conscious opt for it as being central. Donington looks fairer although still a long way south of Scotland.............

I can't find the pushpin map that was started to see where everyone is.

As well as location do we take into consideration the best venue?

Silverstone is not geographically central, somewhere like Leeds is.

However it's probably central as far as Z owners of the various Clubs is concerned.

I live near Leicester which is classed as East Midlands - I'm not in the East and I'm not Midland if you look at the map.

Anyone can suggest a venue with the reasoning behind it, we are open to suggestions at this stage. However if we don't put a suggestion forward for comment we will struggle to get a consensus.

Tatton Park?

What about Tatton Park? Stately Home to visit, annual classic car show, central for everyone (except Sean) and on site camping and local hotels.

Pretty central where I am but when I have been oulton and tatton we get ok turnouts

Donighton gets good turnout of s30

Silverstone we don't really do but few members do go but I don't think they get big numbers there

Last time we celebrated we did the parade lap at Silverstone with good turnout of zeds

I Dunno what venue will be for the best as it's not gunna work out for everyone unfortantley as there quite a few owners in Scotland

I think a big majority of zed owners are down south as

billing used to get good turnouts but can't do that

One of the issue aswell is g people up to come out in there zed to meets as there fare few members cars I have photos of but ha vent seen the zed in years. Maybe there mot has run out. Or bad health but don't want to sell it. Or they just drive it and don't go shows anymore:/

Centre of Uk Not including Scotland as there might not be part of The UK by the time this event takes place


As you’ll see in the BBC article, the town of Haltwhistle in Northumberland proudly proclaims itself to be the centre of Great Britain as it is mid-way along the mainland’s longest line of longitude; and there is a stone cross in Meriden, near Coventry, claiming to be the geographical centre of England. Some people claim the point farthest from the sea must be the centre (a spot just east of Church Flatts Farm, about a mile south-east of Coton-in-the-Elms, Derbyshire), but others don’t think this can accurately be called the centre…so, where is the centre of Great Britain?

The truth is, that there can be no absolute centre for a three dimensional land mass sitting on the surface of a sphere and surrounded by the ebb and flow of sea water. If you consider the movement of tides on a beach, the shape of the object will change on a constant basis. Another contributing factor is how far you consider the coast to stretch up river estuaries. Different projections, scales and methods of calculation will all produce different results.

So pretty much no where is central

I'm north east of Scotland and gave up on the central argument years ago, as long as it isn't cornwal I'm happy.

I like that Tatton Park is West of Silverstone, so a little close for me.

Since I will most likely fly in anyway, the tarmac at Gatwick or Heathrow works too.

In that case I'll suggest somewhere slightly south of there, Nissan Sunderland! 😬
