What UK events are planned this year?

I keep forgetting to renew my FOC membership (Don't tell me off Jonathan), therefore I can't get access to the members area of the FOC site and the bi-monthly magazine's have stopped now.
I'm in the dark as to what events are planned this spring or summer. I would be very grateful if someone could post a list of events, either National FOC or from East Midlands or Three Shires FOC.
Thanks

Archie

I can't speak for Al or Marlin, of course, but I'm planning on being at quite a few of the events listed above plus a fair few others that aren't listed. I'm also intending to do a couple of trips to the Nurburgring (only 4 hours from Calais!) for the Oldtimer GP and Ferrari Racing Days. Plus I'm hoping to get to the World Finals in Italy (don't yet know if it will be Monza - my fav! - or Mugello). Just make sure you get your car out more than last year, Archie!!!

Jonathan, I've already taken it out 4 times this year, which is nearly as much as the whole of last year. I'm praying for a nice Spring and Summer to make up for last year's washout. I'll no doubt see you at Stanford Hall again this year.

Just noticed that the National concours is on the same day as the British GP Not very good planning. On the basis that I'm working on getting another corporate freebie in the hospitality suite from my very good friends at Abbey/Santander, looks like I'll have to miss the concours

That's actually more than me this year! I will be making up for it soon, though. I will probably be at Stanford Hall although I am still vaguely pondering the alternative option of going to Sport et Collection in France, which is the same weekend.

Yes, I don't know why they've done that. The British GP is normally one of the dates they specifically avoid (along with the Festival of Speed). It certainly isn't going to push up attendance at the Concours, that's for sure.
