View Full Version : The Colin McRae Weekender

7th February 2011, 12:55
Well, as you may or may not be aware, I have decided to go the whole hog and organise an event just for the Subaru Community and simply to raise money for the Colin McRae Vision Charity.

I have already listed an event and page on the site 'Facebook' and there is also a dedicated website for the event. www.seriesmcrae.com (http://www.seriesmcrae.com)

So, here is what the event is:

Hi to all member’s
I am posting here to inform you all of an event that I am organising for later this year. The event will be over 2 days, Saturday and Sunday and will be a weekend of fundraising.
The event is to be called ‘The Colin McRae Subaru Weekender’ and will be held on the 23rd and 24th July 2011. This will be the first event of its kind for the Subaru Community and as the name suggests, it a Subaru only event.
This is simply an event to raise money for the Colin McRae Vision Charity. ALL profits from this event will be going direct to the charity.

It will be based local to me here in Stunning North Wales and will consist of the following:

[b]Day 1 – Saturday

This will be a Tour around North Wales following a route suggested by us which will take you around some of the great roads and amazing sights in this area. We will be stopping off at various points along the way for some light refreshments and of course photo opportunities. There will be professional photographers and videographers at various points along the way to capture that special moment for you, all of which will be available to purchase if required.
This will be an awesome sight for ourselves and the general public as we pass through some of the towns and villages along the way. We will end up at yet another stunning location which is located 1400ft above sea level. This has some stunning views, as you can imagine. Food and drink facilities are available if you have worked up a thirst along the way.

Day 2 – Sunday

This will be a more laid back day by having a static car show held at a local show ground. We are hoping for a display of various car clubs showing off some stunning looking cars. There will also be a section for the UK Limited Edition Impreza’s

Also attending will be some of Colin McRae’s cars which will be accompanied by the team from the McRae Vision Charity. So you will be able to purchase this special official Colin McRae Merchandise.

Also at the show :

Trade stands
Prizes for various categories from the Tour and the Show
Raffle for Adults (with some exclusive prizes)
Raffle for Children (Subaru related Items)
Activities for Children
Professional Photographers for the event
And generally a grand days viewing of Subaru cars


**If you wish to have a Club stand then please contact me to reserve your place**

I have managed to find a nearby location close to the main event field which will be just for camping. It is situated about half a mile away which is ideal.

There will be basic facilities on site but unfortunately no electric hook ups. Camping will be available for the Friday and Saturday night.

Alternatively, if you require a list of local B&B's, other camp/caravan sites, Holiday Inns etc then please contact me and I will email the information over to you.

Trade stands will be available upon request. This is strictly a 'first come first served' basis. Please contact me using the contact details below to reserve your pitch
