I know this is going up somewhat early, but summer months tend to get busy for people...
Waiting for the Event to be added by moderator for RSVPs - here's the details for now
EVENT NOW UP - Please RSVP here (Thanks!)
http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/south...th-august.html (Kent & East Sussex "Super Run" : Sun 5th August)
This meet is for a full on “blast” through some of the best driving roads across the Kent country-side and a cruise along some great coastal roads, dipping into East Sussex. The route is a complete loop back to the start point and covers up to 135 miles
of pure driving smiles
What should I be driving?
Anything you like, as long as it’s an Alfa and goes Fast!!
Meeting Start Point:
Maidstone Services (J8, M20)
Meet for 10:00am and depart by 10:30am
Secondary (Final) Meeting Point:
Morrison Supermarket (Retail Park Area)
Ten Perch Road, Wincheap, Canterbury CT1 3TQ
Meet for 11:30am and depart by Noon (at latest)
Please note that there are no more meeting points, as I do not wish to spend my day in car parks!
This gives you the chance to get drinks and snacks; the rest of the day is about giving it the Full Beans, High Calorie, Extra Fat & Lard of a “BOOT FULL”…
NB. I will be arranging a PUB stop
around the Hawkhurst area
for some proper refreshments and the chance for food etc. Depending upon how many people are saying “Yes” to this run, I’ll see if we can get some reservations made…but it is August, so may just have to rock up somewhere and take our chances. (I will update the post on this nearer the time).
Please see the map image attached. and here is a quick summary of what's included:-
This takes in some excellent A/B roads out of Maidstone past Leeds Castle to Charing to Canterbury for the final meet point. Then a nice long dual carriage way blast to Dover - Dover to Folkestone, via the tunnel – drop your windows / roof (if you’ve a Spider) and unleash your exhaust (and Busso for those lucky V6’ers) – plus there is that nice twisting road down from the Castle up through town, enroute to Capel-le-Ferne and then the tunnel run to Folkestone!
We’ll then cruise down to New Romney and take the twisting roads of the Marshes towards Rye and then run down to Hastings (via Winchelsea), up through some nice A/B roads around Battle to Hawkhurst (Pub break around here), run across to Tenterden and then the A road back to Maidstone.
Please remember to bring two-way radio’s if you have them and we can always make any quick pit-stops (if required) during the drive.
The route planner estimates a finish of around 4.00pm, but that depends how long we spend in the pub on the final leg
.... Hope you can make it! Regards, Paul
