There will be a National, usual dates are 2nd weekend in September, but this hasn't been confirmed yet. There is another possibility being discussed. The Committee will announce what's happening as soon as possible

The short answer is: yes there will be.
As per the latest club magazine that is about to come out:

"We are putting a request out to you all for a volunteer to organise the 2022 Club National event. Over the years we’ve had some great events and if you feel that you would like to step up then please let me know. It doesn’t matter if it’s an area that we have previously been to. There will be full support from the committee regarding the organising, but, we need someone on the ground to plan things out. The committee look forward to an avalanche of offers!!

STOP PRESS!!
This year's National will be held at Silverstone Classic on taking place Friday 26- Sunday 28 August.
We will be having a stand and in honour of 50 years of the X1-9, we have secured a lap of the circuit in Friday lunchtime.
So head off to the Silverstone Classic website www.silverstone.co.uk/events/the-classic
and book your tickets using the code in the Classic ad in the last magazine.
BOOKING DEADLINE 31 MAY!!!
So hurry!!!

Neal's right, it doesn't explicitly say so on the car club page part. But I'd be very surprised if it's not a 3 day pass, as the ticket optionss are "weekend" and then each day separately. Also on the general admission page it does say that a weekend pass is 2 peeps for 3 days.

They have a contact if you need clarification, no idea how responsive they are.

I may need to contact them myself, as I can find no official policy relating to nudity on club stands.

Yes, the weekend ticket covers all 3 days, Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Thanks, Mike, you've just given me an idea for next year's calendar! ;-)

If one were to partake of this cornucopia of carclubbery, I note that you have to be in before 09.00 to access the site. I could imagine getting there in what you thought was plenty of time to be confronted by queueageddon, and not making it through the gate. Any speculation on just how early you'd need to get there to get in?

Not sure as we will be on the motorhome and staying on site so my car will be going on our stand on Thursday late pm, which is a possibility for everyone and that's what I would recommend.

OK, I'm all booked up with the wekend display pass using the code, which actually works and gets you to a booking page with "X1/9 Owners Club" on it.

Didn't know you could get on there on Thursday. I'll do that as well, I've got a B&B I can walk to for Thursday night. What times are there access on Thursday? I couldn't see anything about that on the site.

Her Maj's back isn't up to camping, so we're going to have to stay off site. As it happens she's working Friday, so will drive down separately. Public car parking at the circuit is free, so we can leave the X1/9 on the stand & use the ordinary car to get to and from a hotel, where the bed, brekky and shower will be lovely.

PS: As it happens I asked them about access, and the reply just came in. Ms. Silverstone says:

Thanks for your message, you are correct with your thoughts, car club vehicles are free to leave site and re-enter every day. The busiest one tends to be Saturday so it would probably be worth arriving around 7.30/8am to make sure you can gain access in good time, and this of course gives you a full day to enjoy all the Classic has to offer.


I think it opens at 07:30 for club exhibitors.

They really important part is to get a long, long way away on the Sunday before Rick Astley starts. Sorry, Rick, gonna give you up.

PPS: Do we get told which gate to use to get cars on?

Camping is Thursday to Monday. Same price even if you stay less.
I remember last time, admittedly in 2014, a few of us got our cars on site Thursday late pm. So I've assumed the same again.
We are staying on site in the motorhome.

Ref gate to use, you get an exhibitors sticker, maybe in the post with tickets? Which will have that info on.

They appear on the interwebnets a week before kick off, apparently.

In other news, I've found out another fun fact. There's no limit on the number of cars we can have on the stand. Once club packages close end of this month, they count the cars booked and allot sufficient space to each then.

Mine's quite dirty now. I'm going to park it next to Juliet's.

As I'm in charge, you'll park it where you're told to.
