    I appreciate this is early, but get this date in your diary folks - it was confirmed at the Aberdeen show at the weekend. It looks like another attempt to create a 'Goodwood of the north' so to speak - hillclimb, car show etc in the grounds of a castle; in this case, Castle Fraser.

    We've had a few attempts in this area for this kind of thing before, notably the Royal Deeside Speed Festival at Kincardine Castle. Hopefully this one may have more staying power! These guys had a show at the GTM this summer, and are organising cars and coffee events in the area, the next one being at Aden Country Park on 13th October. I'm hoping to get along, maybe see some of you there to find out a bit more.

    I've got no affiliation with this in any way, just wanted to get the word out.

    Good shout Gordon, we've pencilled in cars and coffee at Aden park on the 13th, Callums favourite car from Sunday is due to be there, and we'll hopefully get a better chance for a nosey.

    I really liked the Kincardine event, so good luck to these guys. When was the event at GTM?

    June 1st. I couldn't make it, and from what I heard it was a bit disappointing in both numbers of cars and what to see and do. Fingers crossed they get this event right.

    I might even take the R53 along to the Aden meet, see if my new winglets make a difference

    Some details are now up - http://fullthrottleevent.com/tickets...jZ7OOTSc-tiBms

    It's 15 to display your car, and 10 for a passenger. Same price to display your car, as being a member of the public. Potentially someone like NMS with a reasonable stand would be putting 250 into their coffers.

    Discuss....

    I could see it getting expensive for folks heading up with a full car.

    As for charging a flat rate - it's always annoying when it's cars on display that make the show. That having been said, most other venues do the same thing.

    Another factor to consider is when they'll want entrants to arrive. If it's the same as SCS then it'll either be an overnight trip or an exceptionally early rise for central-belt attendees.
