Right guys some of us have been chatting on this forum about swapping passenger rides for scientific comparison. The time is now!

I propose we do something west of London (Berkshire ish) that way no one should have to travel more 100 miles each way.

I don't know where we should hold such an event, us country bumpkins and Essex boys should bow to local knowledge.

However, I suggest sunday 22nd september whilst the sunshine is still here (snigger). Does anyone second this motion or have a problem with this date.

Ideas for location and relevent tunnels for the Tifosi and TreVoR boys?

DAZ

PS - Although aimed at the PHers who've been mouthing off at each other on the Ferrari and Porsche boards, all are welcome particularly if you bring exotica for us all to drool over and ogle at, such as Ultimas Masers and TreVoRs etc.

I went to G-force the other day out near Tring (J20 M25). A41 is a bloody fast straight road with no camera's. May want to consider somewhere near there. It would be great if we could stage various drive byes. Just to test exhaust notes you understand...

It's clear that these "hoons" (great word Kevin!) are going to become a regular feature of our lives I think. (especially while the weather is OK). What's also clear is that we really really NEED some decent roads - twisties - along with some Motorway slip roads. With all-out "combat-ready" cars like the 360 Modenas and 996TTs along with Tuscan racers and Ultimas we will need to pick the roads carefully otherwise the whole exercise will become VERY frustrating.

We also need a slightly smaller, longer tunnel than Hatfield - something with less traffic. Someone yesterday suggested Southwick Bypass as the ultimate tunnel (South London I think) - I don't know it - does anyone here know it?

I could be there, I think! Too early to say definitely, but I think it should be okay.

Hi guys.

Might be a good idea to invade the Virginia Water meet (wherever that is).

Also means we don't have to argue over pubs and meeting points etc, only work out where the tunnels are? Manu, you mentioned you were local?

Dazren - Our little offices are opposite Maranello Sales - literally down the road from Virginia Water.
We could use the office as "the base" from which to launch the "attack" (No Ninja - I meant on the roads - not the local female population - in fact that goes for you too Dom!)

We've got LOADS of parking around the back - we could all meet there!
Egham has a few nice pubs/watering holes within walking distance. We have motorway slip roads nearby, a tiny "tunnel," and apparently where the bikers meet in Chobham and around Box Hill (sic?) there are some good driving roads - but this latter point is yet to be explored and confirmed. (who knows Surrey/Windsor/ etc well?)

Of course we could all pull into Maranellos in a MASSIVE convoy asking for a test drive of this supposedly stodgy 575M too......

The meet is at the large National Trust car park on the A30(3x 1 coins required to park there)by the lake.There is a Pub next to it.
There are some good roads in the area ie twisties.Avoid Box Hill it will be packed with Bikers and crawling with plod though.

Daz,
Virginia Water is a few miles West of Egham on the A30.

We could all meet up at Manu's office and go in convoy to V/Water.I know the Surrey roads fairly well so will give it some thought.

Jay, if I can make it, you are more than welcome to ride with me. I'm in North London and am looking forward to kicking some Porker butt.
