I didn't attend due to work but from looking at the pictures and right ups etc it would be better if there was a bigger variety of cars. I know it's cliosport Saturday but what about opening up to some other clubs? Megane owners? Williams Clio? Clio16valver? I know this would probably be a logistical nightmare but may make the car aspect a little more interesting and possibly encourage more traders to attend.
I'm not sure why start and finish time matters, you turn up whenever you want and leave whenever you want!
I had a sandwich and coffee and it was fine - experience has shown me this is often the best option. It's hard to imagine what can be done to please everyone without an endless budget.
I used to run a car club and always hired the largest marquee we could for every event. Most of the time it was hardly used, but if it rained we were always prepared. Having said that, one year inside it we modified a members car in a day using donated parts from traders - exhaust, steering wheel, suspension, air filter etc. Another time we did servicing master classes. Back then it was more about the car than the fun and games - but times change.
Personally I think the admin team deserve a big thumbs up for another great event. It's in all of our nature to take the time to be critical, not to praise.
I genuinely couldn't think of anything I didn't like about CSS, but then I used my voucher to get drinks and didn't try the food.
I wrote about the location because the link posted of the buggy simulator before the event showed it set up outside under a gazebo, so that's what I was looking for when I first went there early in the morning. The map made it seem like the food and entertainment was set up in the rear car park, so when I got up there and saw all the bikesafe people in the carpark I assumed it hadn't been set up yet. It wasn't until later when I found it. But then I'm famed for my poor sense of direction so I wouldn't have said it was much of an issue.
The times of the show are fine and the show itself was alright.
The museum was a bit boring as it was mostly the same as last year. The entertainment was really good, better than i had imagined it would be.
I think a change of venue would make it a bit more interesting for next year as there needs to be something to spice it up.
What Leeds_182 said about opening it up to other car clubs.
Be good to see some Williams clios and more Mark 1s and meganesport.net
surely that just maes it French car show...
its a clio sport national meet, not a show
Yeah other car clubs being there is a poor idea imo.
CSS is for CS only.
Offical camping sounds good, where the cars are all parked together in the campsite, but you would need a vast area to do it, and it would become chaos with trying to move cars around.
There will never be on-site camping. Never ever.
People just can't be trusted.
Its open to anyone anyway. This isn't a thread for people to leave feedback again, i was just pointing out some key points.
With respect, you don't organise either event and Trax camping is off site.
I did camping once before WSR, never again. People driving cars around the site all night and being dicks. Zero sleep.

Also true about the camping at Trax being 'unofficial', but the basic principle of camping and cars doesn't seem all that bad. Having said that, your concerns about drunk driving seemed to be proved true at Le Mens.
Was just an idea anyway, evidentially the risks would outweigh the rewards.
