BL park­ing sparks row

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week - NL

A clas­sic car event sec­re­tary has crit­i­cised some at­ten­dees for their at­ti­tude fol­low­ing newly im­posed park­ing re­stric­tions by site own­ers.

Sev­eral visi­tors to the BMC/ BL rally at Ferry Mead­ows, Peter­bor­ough, Cam­bridgeshire on 7 Au­gust were not happy about new rules.

To get free park­ing, clas­sic own­ers had to key their regis­tra­tion num­ber and a val­i­da­tion code into a ma­chine in the main car parks be­fore leav­ing the venue, or face a £50 fine. A cam­era-op­er­ated num­ber plate regis­tra­tion sys­tem was de­signed to make sure there were no ex­cep­tions.

Event sec­re­tary Sara Nye says: ‘We had some cases of peo­ple tak­ing it out on us. We have had to com­ply with these new reg­u­la­tions from the site own­ers – we have had no op­tion.’
