Lick Save Donington Park Parade 7/3/2010

https://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/east-...arade-day.html

Any of the EA region fancy coming to this ? Spaces are limited to 40 (for show parking) and I see it filling up pretty quick so if you want to come along get your name down sharpish

Thanks for putting up a link, baby The 40 spaces are for show parking, there is other public parking for the event so more can come along if they want (I've said the 40 spaces will go to the first to rsvp)

Have no fear - we'll be there!

(The abuse may be felt at Donington!)

To anyone attending this event and travelling along the A14......there is an active speed camera at Kettering just after the slip road for the A509 to Wellingborough.....

Not that anyone would be doing more than 70mph at that time on a Sunday morning on a deserted dual carriageway...............

Thanks I'll swap my reg plates just in case, I've got some fake P reg plates, I think they end in PMR , they'll do! How fast do you have to go to beat a speed camera? 170??

You will have to take a chain saw to that boot

Quote:
Two British traffic patrol officers from North Berwick were involved in an unusual incident while checking for speeding motorists on the A1 Great North Road. One of the officers used a hand-held radar device to check the speed of a vehicle approaching over the crest of a hill, and was surprised when the speed was recorded at over 300 mph. Their radar suddenly stopped working and the officers were not able to reset it.

Just then a deafening roar over the treetops revealed that the radar had in fact latched on to a NATO Tornado fighter jet which was engaged in a low-flying exercise over the Border district, approaching from the North Sea.

Back at police headquarters the chief constable fired off a stiff complaint to the RAF Liaison office.

Back came the reply in true laconic RAF style:

'Thank you for your message, which allows us to complete the file on this incident. You may be interested to know that the tactical computer in the Tornado had detected the presence of, and subsequently locked onto, your hostile radar equipment and automatically sent a jamming signal back to it. Furthermore, an air-to-ground missile aboard the fully-armed aircraft had also automatically locked onto your equipment. Fortunately the pilot flying the Tornado recognized the situation for what it was, quickly responded to the missile systems alert status, and was able to override the automated defence system before the missile was launched and your hostile radar installation was destroyed.

Good Day...'

It means a really early start for you and KT but will be good to go as an EA group

It's my son's first Alfa meet in his 147 and he's looking forward to driving in convoy!

Yeah I haven't really thought that one through.

300mph?!! My Veyron won't do that, I won't bother bringing that then.

I signed up without looking at the important details, 530 is insane! I bet your not driving though?!
