Thumbs Up Convoy to Italian Car Day @ Gaydon

Hi Guys + Gals,

Noticed over in the West Midlands board, they have an event for the Italian Car day over at Gaydon on Sunday 14th September.

https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/west-...n-car-day.html

Katy, Paul - could we arrange a convoy (attempt it at least ) from East Anglia? Might be pushing it though as we are already nearly into September.

Event information here -> http://www.auto-italia.co.uk/auto_italia_events.shtml

John

Katy WILL be going to this one. I am away, unfortunately.

Let's see if we can get a convoy going - just reply here if you can come along.

Pity this is the same day at the ALMS meeting at Silverstone, otherwise I'd be there.

Re: Convoy to Italian Car Day @ Gaydon

I should hopefully be going to this from deepest darkest Essex (hangover and nice weather dependant) ... what route would you guys take ... cross country? or motorways?

If so perhaps get a bit meet up at South Mims services for all those from East Anglia?

Re: Convoy to Italian Car Day @ Gaydon

Hi Guys,

Trying to coordinate a meet up from the South East and East Anglia Lounges with the West Mids and Northern Lounges so we can go in en-masse.

I have suggested we meet at Warwick Services which is just north of the Gaydon turnoff (M40 J12), so we would meet on the northbound services and then nip across to the southbound services by a back road to meet up with the northern guys.

What time were you looking to get to Gaydon by? That way I can start sorting out a meet time at Warwick with the others.

Also it could help if we start posting on that event thread so we get talking to everyone else about times etc..

Katy, I suggested on the other thread that we meet at warwick services soutbound at 10.30 - 11.00 which is about an 1 hour 20 drive from the M25 hows that sound to you? Not sure what time the Lambo's are turning up.

Re: Convoy to Italian Car Day @ Gaydon

It takes exactly an hour from dads to South Mimms Services so i guess meeting there is more than do-able before hand !
