Its back! Finally, after a two year absence EvenTT is back and we cannot wait, it’s felt like a very long time since we were last at Gaydon in 2019. We have made sure it’s been worth it however and have a meeting and cruise planned for the Saturday afternoon, a social meal for people staying over on the Saturday evening and then the main event at a brand new venue on the Sunday.
Sunday 10th July, Entry from 10am
The Great British Car Journey
Ambergate, Derbyshire. DE56 2HE
This year’s host is the Great British Car Journey, a new museum pretty much conceived and built during lockdown and only opened in May 2021.
Over 140 carefully chosen vehicles tell the story of The British Motor Industry on an interactive journey spanning the last 100 years. Guided by an audio-visual tablet, visitors will meet the two founding fathers of the industry: Herbert Austin and William Morris whose vast manufacturing plants in the Midlands produced millions of cars which were exported all over the world. British cars heralded a global transport revolution mobilising billions of people.
EvenTT22 tickets provide access to our reserved parking area along with full access to the museum throughout the day. We will have the club stand set up for memberships and renewals, along with merchandise and back issues of the club magazine to purchase.
As usual, we will be accepting entries for the concours competition which will be judged, and trophies awarded along with other categories for the best cars in attendance chosen by our members during the day. Voting forms will be handed out from the Club stand on arrival for everyone.
The museum has an onsite café for food, drink and facilities and the menu certainly looks reasonably priced. We have a couple of traders arranged to be in attendance also so there should be plenty to keep everyone busy for the entire day!
On the Saturday afternoon we will be meeting at the Hurt Arms, Ambergate, Derbyshire. DE56 2EJ. for 2pm. We will have around one hour there for everyone to arrive for a chat and drink before departing for a one hour cruise into Derbyshire. A basic route card will be provided but the format will be a simple follow the leader to end up in Matlock Bath for 4pm. For those who haven’t been to Matlock Bath before it’s basically like small seaside town inland, arcades, gift shops and fish and chips! It will probably be busy so parking will probably be spread out.
The hotel chosen is the Premier Inn Ripley, Nottingham Road, Ripley, DE5 3QP. The hotel have requested people simply book on the Premier Inn website to gain the best price, there is a deal available for breakfast and evening meal which can be used even if part of our group booking. We have a table arranged for everyone to eat together for 7:30pm.
If you would like to be part of the afternoon cruise, or join us for the evening meal, please purchase a ticket from the Club shop so we can keep up with numbers. There is no cost but it allows us to know who we are expecting during the weekend. These will be added to the Club shop this coming weekend.
