    Ladies and Gentlemen

    In support of the 2013 Zedfest and M-Power event I have arranged for three hotels. Two for Zedfest and one for M-Power. I was unable to source, at a reasonable rate, a single hotel that could cope with our combined potential numbers. What I have done is to secure for the Zed’s 75 rooms each at Holiday Inn Express Northampton and Milton Keynes and for the M-Power fraternity (and other BMW Club Members) 60 rooms at the Holiday Inn Crick near Rugby.

    It is planned but NOT yet confirmed that we will be attempting to “Cruise” to the event from the Hotels. (We have the OK from Bucks but not yet Northants Police Force) the plan will be that the Milton Keynes and Crick contingents cruise to the Northampton establishment and then we all cruise together to the track Hopefully to a separate entrance specifically for us due to the numbers that will arrive together.

    I am trying to arrange for motorcycle outriders but as yet have had no success on that front. I do think we will need them in order to try and keep a group of that size together.

    Z Model’s Hotels
    The rate for the two Holiday Inn Express’s for the Zed’s is £67 per room including breakfast.
    M-Power Hotel
    The rate for the Holiday Inn at Crick for M-Power depends on the room standard chosen. The standard rooms are £40 per night and the executive rooms are £56 per night both without breakfast. If you book a breakfast online at the time of booking your room it is £10 per person per night
    Hotel Questions
    If you have questions on the hotel Please email me at [email protected] and I will respond as soon as possible but also we will then post relevant Questions and answers so that it informs all the various forums.
    TOGETHER-NESS
    I would advise that where a forum(s) want to try and all be together decide within your forum which of the hotels and book in early to avoid the allocations expiring before your membership have all booked. I would also ask please get someone to liaise with me so that every forum does not choose the same one. I also guess I should add that the early bird catches the worm.
    *******************************************
    Update. 13th June 2013 Due to the fact that we do not have the number booking hotels that were expected we are planning to consolidate on one hotel (the one at Northampton) I will be contacting those who have booked Either Milton Keynes or Crick and letting them know that the hotels are comfortable for us to consolidate

    So from here on in please only book The Northampton establishment. We have dropped the Hotels in it a bit so it may be that Milton keynes will become cheaper than our deal but that is because we have suddenly effectively given them another 75 rooms to fill in 6 weeks.
    *******************************************
    Update 3rd July 2013

    The deal with the hotel is now closed, the rooms are now available to the public so the rate has gone up however without any promises the hotel if you ring them and ask for Sarah in meetings and say your with the BMW group you "May" still be lucky at least one has been.

    I have removed all Hotel booking and Silverstone classic links as they have now expired.

    I was going to put email links in for food selection but we do not want non participants emailing the hotel about food choices and messing with the numbers So I decided not to put them up here. If you need the email resent do as others have and contact me on [email protected]


    The Links

    And Zedfest Holiday Inn Express Northampton please use the link (CLOSED 30/6/2013)

    Finally for completeness the Club DIsplay Package for both Zedfest and the M-Power use discount code C13225 on the Silverstone Classic website or the link. (CLOSED 14/6/2013)

    I live in Silverstone village and have special access to all events at Silverstone how do I get to display my car with you? Answer is you contact Duncan and he gets the car display pass sent to you and join in the cruise with us from the hotels as well.

    I am a member of the SRC so get special access to the events at Silverstone how do I get to display my car with you? Answer is you contact Duncan and he gets the car display pass sent to you and join in the cruise in with us as well.

    I bought a ticket for me and two friends we want to bring our three cars we did not use a car club code how do we get to join in with you? You should have used the CCM package and booked with the car club code but get the details of your booking code, names and addresses and car details to Duncan and he will attempt to fix it.

    Are we cruising in to the event every day? No the original plan was to when we were going to have our own entrance but now the official cruise in is only on the Saturday. I have no doubt that we will have other cruise in's on the other days but the big one is Saturday morning.

    RonZ I can confirm that the hotel prices are per room and the Zedfest ones (The Holiday Inn Express Northampton and Milton Keynes) include Breakfast.

    The Breakfast for M-Power is separate to the Room so you order the number you want at the time of booking to get it at the £10 per head rate instead of £19 each. I am sorry that is confusing but the Holiday Inn do it Different to the Holiday Inn Express.

    Regards the Convoy

    My Plan is that the main day whichever that is will be the main Convoy which as yet we are not sure will be Saturday or Sunday but I am planning to try and get motorcycle outriders to try and help keep the convoy together at roundabouts and junctions. If they decide to be with us for the whole weekend then we could do one each day but as yet I have not got that all sorted I have been focusing on the Hotels first.

    When I have a route planned and the figures (which will be much closer to the event) we will know the Cruise details. There is nothing to stop "impromptu" cruises with groups if we do end up with only one day. This year we did the main one on the saturday and a shorter one on the Sunday with a few less but still enough to look good.

    I hope that helps

    Don't know whether we'll be able to make both days, but will definately be there for the main day if there is one.

    As soon as the main day is confirmed we'll be booking for Silverstone and one or two nights at the Northampton Hotel.
