Show: PFC EXPO - Sunday 27th September 2015
#1
Just over 6 weeks till the Performance French Car Expo. Its coming up super fast and its one of the last shows of the season. Once again the club will be in attendance and we will have a stand outside. For anyone who thinks there car is awesome then entries for the OCD Finish Top 20 still being taken visit http://www.frenchcarshow.co.uk/requests/themed-paddock

General overview of the event is that its a nice and small event with some quality cars on the inside of the exhibition centre. Food last year was pretty poor and over priced so may be good to bring your own snacks for the day. You can easily be in and out of the event in a few hours but its the club banter as usual that makes it a full day. I think most of us were there by 10 and headed off by 3 last year.

Location

Donington Park, Castle Donington, Derby, DE74 2RP - Map


Tickets

Buy tickets from http://www.frenchcarshow.co.uk/store. Tickets start from £12.95. Make sure you put 306oc down as your club when purchasing tickets. 


Accommodation

For those of us travelling from a far we will be staying in Derby South Premier Inn. Currently £68.00 a night. This is 10.4 miles away and takes about 30 minutes. Its a nice fun cross country drive there in the morning. Map

I thought the price got more expensive as it gets closer in time? Or is it just randomly variable anyway?

Gonna miss my "local" show again. Second year running I've paid for my ticket and not gone. 

I haven't managed to get the car started http://www.306gti6.com/forum/showthread....&page=last 

Seemed to have identified it as the crank sensor but didn't realise until it was too late to source the part. F***ing typical.

I think everyone is home from the expo now. Small turnout for both the show and the club. Decent banter the night before hand and I was there all day filming and chatting to the PFC guys. Havent got any photos. Just lots of video which Ill sort out in the next week. The show wasnt any different from last year and unless something changes I cant really see it continuing. We arrived late at 10 but then were done by 12.15.

Show was a bit pants IMO, but its a hard one to criticise. It was never advertised, or claimed to be, on par with FCS, but it just felt so badly planned and small.

The previous night at the hotel was a good crack! Just the 6 of us, but that was what made the show for me ThumbsUp (no pun intended)
