"EuroTec 2017"
Yes it's back!

This event is taking place across the weekend of Fri 23 and Sat 24 June 2017 in Norfolk.

As with the highly successful sell-out EuroTec events in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010 ,2011, 2012, 2015 and 2016, not to mention the other so-called "mini-meets" this will be based in the pretty county of Norfolk, this time at another new location, still close to the Royal Family's home at Sandringham - on the edge of the town of King's Lynn.

The hotel is http://www.dragonflykingslynn.co.uk/ . Accommodation is not exactly 5 star, but the hotel has a large tarmac car park and is in the final stages of a refurbishment programme. There are 50 rooms in total.

Attendance at these events is always high, always sells out, and over 30 DeLorean cars are expected this time.

As with the previous big events here, this will be a guaranteed sell-out, and we can only for sure take bookings via the forum for one week from now. Provisionally 20 rooms have been blocked booked for this event, and there is a special rate if you book and pre-pay now. After next week you will have to book direct with the hotel, and at higher rates, and only if they still have availability. Strong interest has already been shown again for this event, as before there is NO charge for the event itself, just the cost of food, drink and accommodation. Previous years have been attended by 30-40 DeLoreans.
UPDATE: As of April there are 40 people (potentially 30 DeLoreans) booked in so far.

Follow this event on Facebook!: Image

The basis of the weekend will be around 'Workshop / Tech sessions' throughout the weekend, as well as socialising and meeting new faces. As before we will take over the **24-hour** bar for the weekend :wink:

Many more 'activities' are planned, details to follow.

As before we will be arranging a scenic drive and other activities over the weekend (mainly on the Saturday) - more to be announced later. There will be plenty of entertainment throughout the weekend, with something for everyone. As usual, the main organisers will be Arran, Alistair, Mike W and Nick T.

This is a good way to meet up with like minded people and swap tips. For non-owners there will be more time to ask questions, look around the cars, etc.


The Itinerary:
- Arrive Friday from 14:00 onwards.
- Socialise, congratulate those who've braved the Norfolk roads in their DeLoreans
- dinner at the hotel - price £15
- Beer etc. (the bar is open 24 hours)
- Sleep(?)
- Saturday - Breakfast (included)
- Hang around car park kicking tyres, etc.
- 10:30 Karting at a nearby track (price t.b.c. and subsidised, but work on £20 per person)
- 1.30 Lunch at "Arbuckles", local large popular restaurant nearby
- 3.00 Tech session
- Bar
- dinner at the hotel - price £15
- Beer etc. (the bar is open 24 hours)
- Sleep
- Sunday - Breakfast (included)
- Go home

Current Room prices including breakfast: To obtain these rates you will phone the hotel and quote the "DeLorean" group and ask for these rates - let me know if you have problems getting these prices
Single: £75 per night
Double/Twin: £80 per ROOM per night (£40 per person per night)

Food prices:
Friday night - £15.95
Saturday lunch - up to you :)
Saturday night - £15.95

So a typical couple staying for 2 nights can expect to pay just over £100 each total including all 5 meals (plus drinks). Yes I know it's cheap! :D


If you would like to come along for just the day on Saturday only then you're more than welcome - you'll just have to pay for lunch and/or dinner if you want it.
If you would like to come along for either evening meal without staying then it would be £15.95 per person for either night. Please just mention it in this thread if you are going to come along for either day (without staying), or if you have any other questions. If you'd rather not post here :shock: then click here to send a message to Arran now.


To book, and I can't emphasise enough the importance of doing this soon since no more rooms are being held for us - you have to hope there is still availability - you can either phone the hotel direct on 01553 771707 and say you are booking as part of the "DeLorean" group for this weekend - or you can book online or via Booking.com etc. at whatever rates you can find (there is no discount for online bookings now - that deadline has passed).

PLEASE ALSO LET ME KNOW YOU HAVE BOOKED SO I CAN BOOK YOU IN FOR DINNER/LUNCH ETC. TOO. - The hotel are unlikely to tell me. Any method will do - either message or email me, or post on here - in either case I just need to know how many people and which days.

Once this hotel is filled the nearest alternative would probably be the Premier Inn in Kings Lynn.


Any questions please ask!

15 people have booked and paid already so far,just to clarify some important points so there is no confusion:
To book now and benefit from these best early-adopter rates you will need to pay in full for the B&B element of the weekend now. Assuming you are coming for 2 nights this will be either £140 or £130 in total depending on whether there are 2 or 1 of you :)

There are no refunds, you can't cancel. (well, on these rates anyway - higher, more flexible rates are available - just ask)

All of these advance bookings made using the above links will be charged at some point next week. If you haven't received a personal email from me by the end of next week confirming you are booked in then that means you aren't.....!

If you haven't booked by about this time next week then you will notice the links above disappear, and the prices change (this will happen -suddenly- at some point from Tuesday onwards) - you will then need to book direct with the hotel via their own website and pay higher rates - and hope they still have availability (rates t.b.c. but will be higher - there is also the option to book on a much higher flexible rate that can be cancelled).


UPDATE: see booking instructions above.

Looks great Arran, thanks again for organising - will be booking this weekend - exciting that EuroTec is back!! :)

Also, will have a look and see if there are any nice spots/local attractions we could drive out too, for a change of scenery.

Looking forward to seeing everyone again! :)

All the best!
