Is there any shows in New Quay because me and some m8s are driving down there for a surfing competition to a campsite. jus wonderd because since we there we may as well go if there was one on.

im going between 2nd-8th august may stay longer if there was one just after.

:sad: im afraid this means ill prob miss out on the southern mini days this year :) but am giving it up for a week at sandy beaches with m8s.

was there someone on here that lives in cornwall? maybe we cud meet up.

this topic can be locked if you want, theres not much point it being here.

im not going now, we realised 7 hours of me driving in a mini, cramped and noisy will be a bit much. specially since my m8s struggle to fit in the car in the first place! lol :grin:

but i will be going to the mini show at paddock wood hopfarm 6-8th august.

Hi Guys
u say the riviera run is on the weekend of the 5th of may, is that the 8th and 9th?
where abouts in newquay is it held? and does eveyone drive down along the A30 in the morning? i live just the cornwall side of plymouth, and ive not been to any mini shows yet, so this will be my first, it sounds great
what sort of things are there? is there normally a large turn out?

I live in North Yorkshire but do the Riv Run every year I can, this will be my 5th time.

There's always a massive turnout and the whole of Newquay is flooded with minis for the whole weekend.

There's always a big run out on the Sunday afternoon after the (smallish) show.

If you live anywhere north of Bristol the run down is a sight to behold, the whole motorway just packed with minis of all types. It is a sodding long drive but that's all part of it.

Details in Miniworld.

Top weekend, and no I don't work for them!

We've got some friends that live in Reading so we usually stay overnight there on the way down as it starts so early.

On the way back we do it in a one-r, I think it's about 7 hours (if we don't break down!!!) :)
