Oh crap, my car is still off the road.
You can rest assured Gemini, I'll be working flat out from now until then to get it ready.
There's not much left to do, honest.....

I really fancy this. I hope my car will be ready.

Don't get excited people it's only a 1 litre 205 XE, but I fancy coming down to BNG to see all the exotica and TVRs!

Are there any plans for camping/BBQ and beer as a large group or is it just intending to be the one day?

Hope to see you all there people.

Phil

For general information Lumley is fully booked on the Saturday evening

Think I may drive up Sunday morning and stay Sunday night! (They have room then!)

Would it be possible to meet somewhere on M1 or A1 in central-ish Yorkshire for a convoy up to County Durham? So to allow as many regions (Yorkshire & Midlands) as possible to go up together, as well as peeps travelling up from the south? Looking on the map, somewhere like Woolley Services near J39 M1, meeting around 9am?

Just a thought, any ideas

Change of plan now -

Staying at hotel near Alton Towers Saturday night - then good excuse for drive up Sunday morning (150 miles) THEN Lumley Hall for the Sunday -

Back S O U T H on Monday!

Simple.

have to admit we (PlanetDave and I) should be in 'Copenhagen' otherwise known as a Capri, but if that is not fit, () it could be worse the clio.

Who let these interlopers in here?

Both have PH stickers and the Clio has a TVRCC sticker, does that make it better?

TVRCC sticker adds an extra 25hp.

Only bettered by adding Lexus rear lights which can offer a power gain of upto 21.47%
