2010 Kit car shows, and the BVS, from Ed

Postby ex925 » Sun Feb 21, 2010 4:39 pm

Spoke with Antoni Offert
DETAILS BELOW ARE PROVISIONAL, PENDING CONFIRMATION FROM ANTONI
The plan is for Antoni to take a BVS stand at Newark, both days, "with a barbeque as usual"
Antoni will also attend Peterborough, probably on the Sunday
Detling is apparently John Crayton's choice, leaving one other, Exeter
We need a volunteer for Exeter, as I shall be far away from the West Country, that weekend
Finally, I will put a summary of the above on EVents, next
All the best, and thank you guys for the help, you know who you are
Ed

WOULD ALL BVS MEMBERS WITH A FUNCTIONAL EV, OR A GOOD STATIC EXHIBIT, SERIOUSLY CONSIDER JOINING THE BVS AT ONE OR MORE OF THE ABOVE KIT-CAR SHOWS???

Contact either Antoni Offert, or John Crayton, or Events@BatteryVehicleSociety.org.uk

All the best

Sadly all too far for me Ed.

But I'll be doing a couple of other shows this year closer to the Southcoast :wink:

Is the BVS not doing the Stoneleigh show this year? If you are, I have two electric cars I can bring along. Sadly, all the other shows are beyond my range.
My new book is out: The 2011 Electric Car Guide is available from Amazon and all good bookshops.

Seems like an excellent idea, Mike, would you be our man?
If I understand correctly, if you would represent the BVS, that gets you the entry and perhaps a 2-car space, and if you contact John Crayton for some material, job's a good 'un?
Looking forward to your ideas, very many thanks for the initiative and the heads-up
All the best
Ed

I failed MSVA on my electric trike yesterday, but will pass at the next attempt, I just need to do some tweeking. I have attended Newark for the past 6 years with my ICE trikes and would enjoy exhibiting "Sparky" this year. How could I get it there from Chorley? Driving is not an option and our Mini is a bit small to tow it 120 miles! By the way I tested the limit of the law by driving the last 4 miles back from the MSVA test. It flies! It did not slow at all on a steepish hill at 43mph and corners well. Battery voltage sagged to about 69V on the hill, having started at 76.3V after a long rest. I will give a detailed account of performance when I am fully on the road.

Did you sort out transport to Newark for this weekend?

Tim, I am just waiting for my registration number after the usual lenghty fight with the DVLA local office. I have decided to give Newark a miss this year. I want to test Sparky and get some data before anything else. I hope to be on the road next week unless some annoying jobsworth can find another excuse to stall me. I will post my findings.

Andrew.
