The Lost Rally
2020 was looking like near certain to be a write off event wise. However, some changes to restrictions in July presented an opportunity to try to potentially make use of venues that could operate after assessment. Safety is something we take very seriously and while we are unable to offer a Rally as we would normally, we can now offer an enjoyable and engaging and importantly, safe day out for MX-5 owners, utilising an entire day of British Motor Museum’s allocation of tickets.
The Museum has been an excellent backdrop to many of our events, it’s centrally located, well serviced and provides an all weather venue, that has proved popular with members. We have worked extensively with them over the last decade and with this arrangement we are acquiring all of their allocated tickets for the 20th September - they will provide MX-5 Owners the space and facility for a gathering that is within the regulations and under their regulations for visitors to the Museum.
We are also keen to return to them our support in this challenging time.
Of course the rally was there last year, but with the same numbers being unlikely this year, along with limited safe capacity, they can manage about 400 vehicles and we understand completely there will be those who don’t want to come and this is wholly understood for whatever reason be it covid or because of last year. This is not an ordinary year and this is not an ordinary arrangement but we’d like to try to make it a special day out.
The Club will support members with a reduced ticket price and a unique and limited edition complimentary Autumn Meet commemorative gift pack with T-shirt and car sticker . As this is not our event a ticket charge needs to be made for the day, we cant make our usual arrangements for hire, but we do want to give members back something in return and a unique memento for those that do come.
Packs will only be available to Club members who attend and collect on the day. Members must add their T-shirt sizes to their ticket order on the website. Please note: Covid regulations mean T-shirts will not be exchangeable on the day and we ask that members please specify your size when ordering (if in doubt go one size up). A reduced Club shop will be attending, they will have a limited number also available to purchase on the day.
Because the capacity of the Museum and grounds is limited - tickets will be available on first come basis (a portion of the tickets will be held back until the publication of Soft Top Hardtop, which has been delayed by Covid) All Tickets must be pre-booked online in advance the capacity of the museum is strictly limited. All tickets for the day are per person, not per vehicle . There will be no access on the day without a ticket and no tickets will be available at the gate, you will be turned away. Tickets are only refundable in circumstance of event cancellation. Please book early to avoid disappointment .
