2013 DATE AND VENUE NOW CONFIRMED

Waxstock 2013 will be held on Sunday 7th July at Peterborough Arena.

THE DATE
We have moved this from the same date as last year due to the bank holiday and an event clash at the venue that would have seen us sharing the site. The benefit is that July tends to have better weather than June and it's bang in the middle of the car care season rather than right at the end of it. The problems are, as you would expect at this time of the year, date clashes with other events. . . GTI International has also moved unexpectedly to a new venue and two weeks later in the season to the same weekend. Again, this is a multi-day event for visitors, so you can always do the Saturday at GTI and the Sunday at Waxstock - but its bad news for traders and concours entrants. GTI has been late June for years and we never anticipated a move when our new date was scheduled (the only suitable date available at Peterborough). Japfest 2 is also on the same day, which again, is unfortunate and undesirable, but at least Japfest itself is clear, earlier in the year. As ever, finding a date/venue that suits everybody is tricky to say the least, and there will be clashes with other shows whichever weekend it is on, but we will always work with venues and show calendars to try and pick the least disruptive and most desirable date possible for Waxstock as the years roll on. This year, we will be having a 'Festival of Shine' and hoping that as many of you as possible can make it.

THE VENUE
Because of the event clash on the same weekend, Peterborough was looking less likely as a venue and we were in talks with many other venues and even event organisers. We looked at stadiums, other exhibition centres, even car museums, universities and posh hotels (thanks to all who made suggestions). Some places wanted to charge our visitors to park, had little parking or outside space, had poor lighting or were simply too small or prohibitively expensive. One venue wanted 4k GBP just to clean up, forgetting that this is a one day mainly-indoor car show, rather than a week long festival of litter! In the end, a cancellation freed up a weekend in July at Peterborough and we decided that the venue offered the best outside areas, indoor space (with natural light in the 1k m2 Atrium) and hardstanding parking - at sensible costs. We plan on growing the show a little more in 2013 compared to 2012 and make it even better.

DATE CHANGE: FESTIVAL OF SPEED 2013
Festival of Speed 2013
Due to the FIA unexpectedly announcing a further change to the 2013 F1 calendar, the German Grand Prix will now take place on 5-7 July, the same weekend on which the Goodwood Festival of Speed was scheduled.
Given that the Festival of Speed is the only event in the world outside of a World Championship Grand Prix where you can get a close up view of the latest F1 cars and drivers in action, we will now have to change the Festival’s date in order to avoid this conflict with the amended Grand Prix calendar.
Goodwood is now reviewing the 2013 Festival of Speed dates and will confirm these very soon. Please note that tickets already purchased will be valid for the new event dates, and that Festival tickets remain on sale via the Goodwood Ticket Office only – please call +44 (0)1243 755055 for sales or further enquiries.
We apologise for any inconvenience this change may cause, but sadly this is outside of Goodwood's control.

How far in advance would tickets go on sales - I'm only after indicative timing, I wouldn't hold you to it! Just thinking this would make a good gift for some of us to give/receive.

I am deffo going again, TBH my whole reason for going was my feeling that if you are involved in the trade you have to support the trade.

Fantastic show and might try and get a car lined up for the top 16. Will prob have a stall with Mitchell and King products (yet to be confirmed):thumb:

2012 was a cracking start to this show so i'm sure 2013 will take what was best from before and grow it... well done all those involved :thumb:

GTI Inters has been one of the mid season shows i've attended for the last few years but given the choice i think i'll be coming along to Waxstock again this year, Inters has lost something over the last few years and the atmosphere just isnt the same.

The show is a one day show on the 7th.

The 6th will be the setup display. We will need to speak to Peterborough to get the date amended.

Cheers,

Were hoping to have the 2013 site up and running before the end of the month and you will be able to purchase tickets from then.
