I am pleased to announce that there will be a club stand at Donington again this year during their Historic Festival. The dates for your diary are Fri 1 May, Sat 2 May and Sun 3 May. Jonathan Kinghorn has organised this very successful and well attended event for many years, however he is having a well deserved break from it and I am 'picking it up'. Jonathan owned a Samuri and his original idea was to organise an event and attract as many Samuris as possible. This gathered pace over the years culminating in a fantastic 'turn out' last year - even though Jonathan had sold his Samuri to me. However the event wasn't exclusively for Samuris, indeed the 'best car' award last year went to a standard 260Z. This year we are not marketing the event as the 'Samuri Gathering' it will be a Z Club meet with other invited Clubs attending as before e.g. The Z Register. Hopefully this will avoid confusion as to who is the organising club and what cars/owners it is aimed at i.e. all Zs and ZXs. The main 'show' days will be the Saturday and Sunday but hopefully our tent will be erected on the Friday. I don't know where 'our stand' will be situated but I do realise that the location never suits everyone and it has been a matter of discussion each year. We need to be central to the racing, close to other Clubs, easy to reach for visitors and not at the end of a 'farm track'. Please try and make this one and put the dates in your diary. For those travelling a long way and staying in the area overnight I'm led to believe that a good time is had by all! -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Ticketing: Here is the booking information your members will need - please note that the booking system is slightly different to previous years.
