Lets hope for good weather :)

Not sure what ill be in yet, either my Activa, the XM or perhaps we will bring both.


It's looking like I'll be going down as well, just wondering whether to go M61/M62/A1 or M6/A500/A1 ? :-k maybe we could have a mini convoy down as well Chris?


Ill be doing A19/A1(M)/A1, pretty straight run down really. Google thinkgs 3 hours 15 minutes so probably more like 2 hours 45.

Can certainly convoy down Steve, where will your route cross mine?

Talking of V6's, I've heard from Jason that he's coming along in Roger's old car. From the sounds of it it's looking very nice indeed.

He's been polishing the doorshuts too with Autoglym! :shock: 8-)

Chris,

I'll cut across the "Dark side" :saber: M62 and then A1(M) so anywhere south of that, I'm not that familier with that area so somewhere easy to find and then just a time to meet, which can be as early as you want.

Vince,

If you want a lift, let me know, I'll be more or less passing your's :wink: so it's no trouble..

Sounds good to me Steve, I'm not sure where to meet either. I was thinking of getting there for about 10.30-11.00, how does that sound?

When you join the A1(M) how far is it to the event location from there? That'll give me a rough idea of when I need to set off.

Maybe just a services, possibly the easiest?

Chris,

M1 just south of Junction 39 there are some services called "Woolley Edge" I'm thinking something like 08:30 - 09:00 that should give us plenty of time to get the rest of the way. (Vince that would mean about 7:30 at yours?)

Just thinking out loud...... If anyone else is heading the same direction...........

That's the plan, Long weekend off.............. =D> =D> =D> =D>

Oh yes and Northern Rally, then ICCCR and whatever else I can work in without upsetting SWMBO but given that I've bought her a new car this week and an Easter Egg, I'm in her good book's.......... [-o<

That, of course, will only be until I get home from work in a couple of hours ....... :roll: :roll: :roll:
