This will be held at The New Inn Public House which is situated at Needwood north of Burton upon Trent on the five lane junction of the B5017 and B5234 which has a large car park. This is intended to be a low key friendly event to run a few engines, barter, or sell a few engines, to meet old friends and a few younger ones as well and have a meal, or BBQ at a friendly pub?? We plan to start at 10.00 am when tea/coffee and a breakfast will be available to those in need. Barry and Gail are your hosts and they can be contacted by telephone on:- 01283 575392.

I intend running my Oliver powered tether car with which I achieved 100mph in Sweden earlier this year. We also hope to have a few multi-cylinder engines demonstrated. If you intend bringing an engine to run (nothing too noisy please) can you let us know so we can tell others. New, I also will run my 1912 Cetonia made in Paris the oldest engine in my collection, if you don’t know what this is come and find out!! I hope to run a few others as well, maybe an 18cc four cylinder OHV Cirrus scale engine.

Amongst our usual wares we shall be selling a number of RC engines of 0.45 to 0.65 cu ins all new in box at £25 each, or just £20 each for more!!

Please let us know if you intend supporting this initially one off event, which could become an annual event, if well received and we do not upset neighbours!!
