Iirc 2 years ago the issue was the M3 being closed overnight to roadworks, I don’t think that’s the case this time, anyone know the best site for road closure / traffic information?

I can’t do Friday due to being a wage slave. smile

Not doing it this year unfortunately, but last year's run was fantastic.
We did choose to do it on the 'right' night last year.

I suspect that even if there isn't a big PH group doing it tonight, you will meet up with a few other people on tonight's run.

Best of luck for everyone doing it on either night.

M3 is boring.

It's got to be A303! yes


Hope you all have fun, be safe! smile

Hi Burnie,
Did you get there? Are you now on the run back down to Cornwall?
Just over twelve and a half hours to sundown!

Morning all,

Now at work still feeling the effects of sleep deprivation. Only the two cars on the Saturday night, wifey and I in Boxster and Blaine and Nathan in Blaine's rumbly Merc SL500.

Really enjoyed the run though. The A30 has been dual carriageway'd a lot more now, and the run isn't really a challenge in itself anymore, (other than to go for a personal best of course smile ), but I really enjoyed in nevertheless. It is a right old blast, very enjoyable to do it roof down. Empty roads, not too many speed cameras either side of the M25. Once beyond the M25 the roads are really empty, and you can have a right good old blast. Very enjoyable indeed.

So it might not be a challenge but I'll be wanting to do it for a few years to come, hopefully.

Burnie, were there many others with you on the Friday night? I've seen a Facebook entry from someone who did it in a Smart car, must have been on the Friday night when you did it . The car parks at both ends had a good number of cars, and they've even produced themselves a sticker. I'm really jealous. smile

Yes was a great night, just a shame at the lack of cars, but still we enjoyed it, sun burnt and tired, but still a good drive.

Same! Would be ideal as nothing else going on as something normally interferes.

Luckily I live close to Lowestoft for the finish, but it would basically mean driving to Lands End during the day and then back again overnight. It's a recipe for disaster. frown

We did it last year, but and didn’t have a hotel, iit was just too much, 1000 miles in less than 24hours, never again.

I'll be doing it this year. Been putting it off for years but no work is a perfect excuse! Taking my Diesel daily so should be able to do it on 1 tank.
My co-pilot and i are driving down from East Sussex Saturday afternoon! Wish us luck!
