Recommended Posts

The EO, our esteemed chariman, will be along at some point to update this thread with details of this years event but to whet your apetites and give you an idea of how great this event was last year, here is the description from Brize for 2021 and a link to the pictures and reports at the bottom. If you are interested in attending this year, feel free to post up.

We have been invited to participate in the Motorsports section of the above event. To give you a flavour of what it's about I will paste in their invitation. Please see below the blue script for registration information.

Please see my post below concerning allowable vehicle types - Jeff-W.

Ladies and gentlemen,

I would like to start by saying thank you so much for agreeing to be a part of Royal Air Force Brize Norton’s Families Day 2021. We are very grateful to have you joining us and having all your wonderful vehicles on display really is quite a spectacle, especially whilst parked alongside the largest aircraft in the RAF’s strategic transport fleet. I just need to remind you of a few points, and detail some information for the day below so please do read through carefully. Those of you who are MDs, chairs, and organisers for your clubs and companies please pass this email on to all of your drivers.

 What is a Families Day?

 For those of you who have not joined us before the Families Day is a chance for all the serving and ex-serving RAF families and friends to get together to enjoy a wonderful day out. It is a chance for us to give back to them and say a big thank you for all their support, patience and understanding of the roles and responsibilities we fulfil all over the world on behalf of our country and Her Majesty the Queen.

The event will consist of a funfair, static aircraft displays, a fly past, a parachute display, food stalls, traders, an open air concert in the evening and a ton of other entertainments and festivities.

Being part of the Autosport Display you will get exclusive access to an active airfield and will be parked on the 99 Sqn pan alongside the UK’s strategic transport fleet and various other static aircraft. This is a fantastic opportunity for you to get access to an active military airfield, park alongside some of the most iconic transport aircraft of the modern era –  the C-17 Globemaster,       C-130J Hercules, A400M Atlas and Voyager; plus also be part of a day that brings happiness to thousands of RAF personnel and their families.

Interested parties note that, after I spoke to the Brize Ctte last year, they are happy for Clubs to bring sports cars of all types so we are not limited to Nissans this time, but the event will still be members only plus passengers.

I think I'm going to book a hotel in nearby Witney for Friday and Saturday nights and make a weekend of it. Probably take a drive up to Bourton-on-the-Water on Sunday morning.

I've booked somewhere nearer to Brize in Burford Road, Alvescot, which I'm sure you will know is a short distance south of the airfield. I'm sure I could tag on to you/others somewhere on the morning of the 3rd for entry to the event.

Can still arrange something for Saturday evening.

Just bumping this event in case you missed it first time around and would like to put the date in your diary.

The day is an absolute must for the aviation minded, and there were some cracking cars there last year as well.

If you are interested then just post up here and I'll add you to the list.

As explained more fully above, I will post the official event advertising when it becomes available to me.
