Now that the 2011 National is out of the way I want to keep this topic boyant. As mentioned I intend to have a hand in setting up a BX section of the ICCR!

The plan is to get an example of each year in a line up 1983-1994 from A-M and maybe a certain N reg TZD on the end 8)

I would also like if possible to get the cars looking their best...... so buckets, sponges and chamois leathers WILL be provided :lol:

Give me a shout when they release day ticket prices, I'm not shelling out near on £100! :lol:

Can't get over the location though, it seems so daft. "So, we'll hold the 2012 ICCR meet in the UK. Lots of people expected from Europe, so lets keep it a sensible location for everyone."

FUCKING YORKSHIRE??!?! It's miles from everywhere except Lancashire!

It'll be a 250-300 trip there and the same back for me :S And then I dread to think what those who are trekking over from Europe will do. Drive all teh way to France for a ferry, then get off the ferry in Dover or Pompey and then have to drive all that way (pretty much the same as me as I live next to Pompey) up a depressing motorway.

Who do we shout at? :lol:

I spoke to Nigel Wild on Sunday, day tickets are at the moment £20. Bought my ticket for the ICCCR at the disounted rate last year. Re the location, please bare in mind the cost of hiring a showground is prohibitively expensive, the cost to hire Harrogate is approx 40 grand and i would imagine a showground further south would be double that. Also a large contingent of foreign visitors will be coming not just from southern europe, but from northeastern europe, ie the Netherlands, Scandanavian countries etc so to appease every visitor would be impossible. Personally i can't wait. But then i live across the "border" in Lancashire.

Tim, just to allay fears of dirty BX's turning up at the BX birthday bash, i've been onto Sainsbury's website and the store by the Harrogate main entrance has a petrol station complete with, wait for it, a JET WASH :!:

To a degree I have to share Kitch's point. It's a feck of a long way from a large proportion of those who will be attending. Even those from the low countries etc. will likely be coming into Harwich/Felixstowe or Gt. Yarmouth.

OK I also take the point about it costing a load more to have it in a more central location (and, actually where???), but given a (square-ish) area with Stoke-on-Trent, Nottingham, Northampton, Worcester on its corners there must've been somewhere!

But it's too late to whinge and moan, like it or lump it now I guess. And it still promises to be an enormous event with thousands of cars and lots to do. So, on balance I'm going... and for the bulk of the days too. Well, it's probably the only ICCCR I'll ever go to!

You cant please everyone all of the time and finding a suitable location big enough wasnt easy, its only once every 4 years, and this time its in England, if you only ever go to one Citroen show make sure its this one, trust me it will be worth it!

no leeds to Interlaken in a xantia* for the 13th ICCCR; that was far. And no we didn’t win the prize for having travelled furthest. Rome was far too but we went by rail...

How many people here have actually been to an ICCCR before then? You really want to go for the full weekend if only for the atmosphere.

Rome was good because you got to see al the vehicles go around the track. Although there were far less stalls and cars than at Interlaken. I heard people talk about there being 4-5 at Switzerland and i think there must have been over 200 stalls easy. So dunno what the turnout will be in the UK but hopefully..........

Tim count me/us in; its only 30 mins from me so ill be there all the time in both cars.

Does anyone know what is happening on the Thursday? Is it just arrivals or are stalls open etc?

*TD 1 &1/2 tanks of fuel each way fully loaded.

Just a reminder that if you pre-book before the end of Jan, there's a discount on the price.

By the way, the 2CVers are very much looking forward to generating a bit of a party atmosphere. I've heard that BXers like a drink/party, but have never experienced this before. I look forward to some serious good times!

If you haven't made your mind up yet, the Ukulele Orchestra of Great Britain are performing on the Sunday night to close the event. They're are simply superb. Enter their name in YouTube and discover just how good.

As for distance, whenever any event is held in the north, folk in the south always kick off about it being too far. We held the 2CV World Meeting in Kelso, Scottish borders in 2005 and people came from Italy, Romania and The Netherlands. None of them complained about the distance. They complained about the weather, but that's Scotland for you! If you include Scotland, Yorkshire's pretty much the southern part of the British Midlands. It's a pretty epic journey from here in West Wales. I can't wait.

Also, Australians and Americans always laugh at any discussion about things being too far in Britain. Any event that doesn't involve travelling 1000 miles is considered local in these places I think!

I can't find info for day tickets-

I intend to arrive Friday evening (I am running out of holiday) and leave Sunday evening. Is that 2 day tickets or should I buy the full ticket before the end of Jan?
