There is one thing that any outdoor event organiser cannot control and that is the weather. In the UK, that can cover not just cars events, but country shows, rock concerts and a host of other shows. Where the bulk of the event’s income is from gate receipts, a wet day can be a disaster. You may remember that the Cumberland Show, once had a disastrous run of seven wet years, in most cases the venue was a mud bath and anyone who came wore wellies. It just about bankrupted the show.


Equally so, a bad weather forecast but a decent day can be almost as bad. That is what happened to our Cumbria Classic and Motorsport Show (CC&MS) this year. The forecast was not good but by the time I reached the venue at seven in the morning it was dry, and it turned out to be a decent day. The band of rain (reputedly a storm which sounds worse) cleared Cumbria overnight but it seems as if some folk looked at the forecast and decided to stay tucked up under the duvet. However, the rain moved east and south and on looking at the list of no shows, many were from the NE or in Lancashire.


It could have been a lot worse, but the gate receipts were down by about 20% on last year. Our venue at Dalemain has excellent drainage and it was dry underfoot all day. The Cumbria Classic is well-known for being one of the best events in the country and that was

The monthly programme of autotests, meets and run continues into the autumn and there is a Breakfast Meet at Gilcrux Village Hall on 30th September starting at 9.00am. This is open to everyone with an interesting car of any age. The next autotest is on 23rd September and then our final rally of the year, the Solway Historic and Targa on 14th October.
