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.

RAF Brize Norton has made the following information available to Autosport participants:

 

IMG_8834.thumb.JPG.dd3e7a44d6c34218f0a6b09a39b2271d.JPG

 

 

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 2022. 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 your vehicle 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, parked 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.  

Booking, passes and identification

Please complete the attached booking form and return it to one of us at the email address noted. The details from these are collated and when you arrive on the day you will be checked against this list and given a generic escorted pass for the duration of the day. If your details are not on this list, you will not be granted access. I will have a full copy of the list with me on the day and there will be a full list at the entrance. Please bring your booking forms with you along with Photo ID (Passport or Driving Licence) for you and your passengers. This is very important as you and your passengers will not be able to gain access without individual government issued Photo ID.

Address

  

RAF Brize Norton

Carterton

Oxfordshire

OX183LX

If you enter this into your Satnav, it will take you to the main gate. At the moment we are planned to use the main entrance. If this changes I will let you all know. RAF Brize Norton has a few entrances and we may need to use alternates to ease congestion.

Timings and Safety Points

 

Please make special note of the information below:

                     All display vehicles will need to arrive between 8:00am and 10:00am. Please do not arrive later than 10:00am as a site walk around and assessment will be completed at 10:15am.

                     All display vehicles will need to remain on site until 4:30pm.

                     RAF Brize Norton is an active airfield. At all times vehicles MUST follow the directions of the marshals on site.

                     At no point are vehicles to drive around the airfield of their own volition, under the wings of aircraft or within close proximity of aircraft.

                     Please be understanding and follow these rules so that everyone has a safe and enjoyable day and this event can carry on as it is in years to come.

 

How will the day run? 

Between 8:00am and 10:00am you will arrive at RAF Brize Norton Main Gate. On arrival your information and ID will be checked, and you will be issued passes. You will then be put into groups of 10 cars + and escorted to the airfield. Once at the airfield you will be under the direction of Marshals at all times. They will be wearing High Visibility vests and will direct you to where we wish you to park. Once on base you will be directed and parked as you arrive, there will be no ability to wait for friends or other members of your groups as it would hamper the process and make it extremely difficult for the small numbers of volunteers we have to control everything safely. To that end, if you wish to be parked together or in groups then please arrange to meet somewhere in advance and drive to RAF Brize Norton in convoy, it would also be advisable to arrive early on to avoid the traffic. Once you are parked up the day is yours to enjoy. There will be plenty going on and plenty to see. If you wish to bring chairs etc to sit by your cars feel free. In fact, we encourage this to enable you to chat with interested members of the public. Please make sure you keep hold of all belongings and litter however as a stray item can be very bad news for an aircraft engine.

Please bear in mind the event timings; we cannot cater for display vehicles leaving early because of the large volume of foot traffic expected. We would appreciate sensible behaviour and to keep noise levels to a minimum, so no loud stereos or revving engines please.

We are happy to accommodate photos of you and your vehicles with the aircraft, this is a unique opportunity for a very different kind of backdrop. This will take place at the end of the day, and again, will be under the direction of staff to avoid potential damage to you, your vehicles or our aircraft.

 

I would like to thank you again, in advance, for agreeing to show your vehicles, and we very much look forward to seeing you all on September 3rd for what we all hope will be a great day!

 

Best regards,

 

The BrizeFest Autosport Display Team.

 

Cpl Gaz Owens, Cpl Jennifer Wright, and Mr Ian Winman.

I will forward the Autosport Booking Form to those individuals who sign up for the event; it has the Brize email address required once you have completed it. Please don't forget to complete the section marked Club/Group - it makes the parking together so much easier!
