lacking quite a few traders but not a bad turnout of cars today, shame such a good venue with space for a lot more stalls ?

I thought its the busiest I've seen Donington (well customers inside at least).

Not a bad show, its always nice to see a show that has something else rather than just static shows. I even took a trip to the museum- that's a hell of a collection!

I went today rocked round on my electric trike which was a godsend over the rubble and even got to watch the racing .
It's the busiest I have ever seen it , the weather prob helped.

It's never had a lot of stalls but glad it still going, managed to pick up a blacker filler cap at a discount for my build

I really enjoyed the show and hope it continues to grow. I do sincerely hope it's gets good feed back and support for next year so that it continues to grow and not disappear like the shows we've lost already.

You were a week late Dan. The real racing was on the Bank Holiday weekend.

I know, but I'd just taken the keys to the new house.

Did enjoy the slick shod caterhams going through Roberts tho.

I thought the show was excellent. This is only the third year since its revival and it has solidly grown year on year. Sunday was very busy, it was very nice to see some new exhibitors in the hall, Bertini and Kraftwerk Tools were both great new comers to the show. A limitation of donington is that the hall isn't the biggest but it was certainly full as some of the exhibitors had to pitch up outside on the grass in front of the hall. other than the hall. there were tones of very interesting kit cars parked out in the club field both days, i was quite surprised that it took me almost as long as Stoneleigh to walk round and look at them all.

in my view over all it was one of the best kit shows i have visited in a long time. the added dimension of the weekend racing and autosolo makes it somewhat more dynamic

I camped from Friday so I was there the whole weekend but I don't think I will do it again, I'm still suffering "jet lag" . I thought the show disappointing , nowhere near as good as Newark even at its worst ,

Wow, I got jet lag too. I enjoyed the evening entertainment but there must have been a rave going off in a nearby field until 3am, then at 5am the planes, oh no the planes!!!
Great show though, good to meet so many people, great to see everyone enjoying it, sadly that is it for kit shows this year apart from TKC live at Brands on the 15th Nov. I will be at Pistons and Props on the 27/28th Sept and NEC classic on the 14-16th Nov. P&P was great last year and some kits will be allowed due to them being in classic style, I will be there with a Replicar, come and say hi.

This was my first show since buying my car, I quite enjoyed it but I was hoping and thought there would be more of a auto jumble as I went with a long list of things needed. Being a complete newbie is the show at brands hatch worth going in November?
