A frequent FREE shuttle bus will be operated throughout the day by Go Goodwins linking the Launch Pad in the centre of the SHOWBUS display with the Grand Prix Collection and the bus stops for the East Midlands Parkway and Skylink services. The services will be at least every 15 minutes in the afternoon and more frequent in the morning. The last bus will leave the Launch Pad at 1650h.
We are pleased to announce the details of the three FREE services from SHOWBUS on selected entries. We are delighted that following last year's pre-show mechanical failure that Dave Harvey's Birmingham Crossley is firing on all cylinders and will be doing a shuttle service to East Midlands Airport in the afternoon and affording good views from the top deck. Anyone wishing to return home after Showbus via the airport can do so. Anyone boarding at the airport will be required to pay the £12 admission to SHOWBUS.
