We are looking for up to 15 antique race cars to set up along the Avenue of States during the Big E Fair on the 1st Sunday of November this year. The Big E has also agreed to have the NEAR Mobile Museum on display.
This is a unique and exciting opportunity to display your race car in front of a minimum of 50,000 fair goers. Everyone coming in with the car on display will receive free admission and free parking. You must be on the Big E grounds before 8 AM and will be allowed to leave at 4 PM as a group, escorted off the Fairgrounds by security.
If we get a minimum of 6 cars the NEAR Board of Directors has agreed to consider making the event a points show. If this event is a success I think it could probably be a regular event on the Big E calendar as there was a lot of interest in last year’s racing events at The Big E.
This has the potential to be a great event, exposing our Club to a lot of potential new members throughout all of New England. We won’t be allowed to sell merchandise, but we can recruit new members. Please notify me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Or 413-896-4764 If you plan to attend.
See you there!
