Porsche Club's North West Region is once again planning to stage their main event of the year at the Oulton Park Gold Cup.
Having had a discussion with the Circuit Manager on 16 June, regarding the likelihood of the Gold Cup weekend going ahead, MSV are travelling optimistically, as they are selling tickets for the event via their website, having in mind the worst case scenario that refunds will be made should the event not be open for spectators.
Complete with that information, the R5 Committee decided to adopt a similar approach – to travel with optimism that the event will be staged. However, this year there is the potential for the Porsche Display unit to be absent, which will give more space for the cars; and the marquee, kindly provided by PCGB HQ previously, will be absent, but we are planning to have our more modest R5 marquee there with our tables and chairs, as we used to have, for a place to gather and meet with friends. Another difference this year is that the ticketing process will be handled by the Region, instead of HQ, so that we maximise the customary donation to our chosen charity.
As you are well aware, the Oulton Park Gold Cup, the Region’s signature event, is hoped to take place again – continuing a history of more than six decades of diverse competition, with a terrific line-up of historic motor racing content, organised by the HSCC. Sports cars, single-seaters, and touring cars from the 1950s, '60s, '70s, and '80s will all appear to celebrate the venue's rich heritage.
The £10 admission charge covers a Porsche with two occupants for all three days of the event. Please note if more than two occupants will be in the vehicle additional entry tickets will need to be purchased from the MSV website.
To help space planning and setting out of our usual prime location site, please ensure that you tell us the days you will be attending, the names of the people who will be in the car, and if you are bringing more than one car, each car will need a separate application, quoting the Car Model and Registration Number.
Please note that the total space available is limited to 200 cars, so early application is advised to avoid disappointment, and applications will close on 15-Aug-20 – to facilitate the issuing of tickets.
Also, we are extremely fortunate to be offered the opportunity of having a Parade Lap of cars around the circuit on the Sunday morning.
A separate application will be necessary from those Members wishing to participate in the Parade Lap, Rules for participating will be issued for compliance, and a £5 donation to charity will be levied on the successful applications – again, early application is advised in order to avoid disappointment, and applications will close on 15-Aug-20 – to facilitate the selection of the cars and the issuing of the circuit access passes.
For more information regarding what to expect on the day and during the course of the event please visit the Oulton Park website - https://www.oultonparkgoldcup.com/
Early applications to email@example.com are recommended in order to avoid disappointment – don’t forget to help the organisers by including the essential details in your application: the Car Model and Registration Number, the days you will be attending, the names of the people who will be in the car, and if you are bringing more than one car, each car will need a separate application – PLEASE!
The £10 nominal fee secures your infield parking and post-event will be donated to a Charity.
This offer is only available to Porsche Club Members. Tickets and mirror hangers will be despatched near to the event date.
