OK, OK. So it is not much of a convoy at only a 30 minute drive to Stanford Hall - but who fancies it? Suggest meeting at Leicester Forest East services on the M1 South at 9 am, convoy off at 9:30 to get to the full meet point at some dodgy Travelodge (LE17 4BP) with the rest of the AOers before the big day of fun?

Wow - a response!

I was just about to check in here for any stragglers, dust off the cobwebs, turn the lights off and close the door on the way out.

I did think it was almost a dead topic but at least we'll be representing the area Does two count as a convoy???

Re: Regional Convoy? - AutoItalia 7th June

"two vehicle convoy" in google brings up nearly 2500 hits so I'm happy to believe that two is, in fact, a convoy. If it really comes down to just us we can meet in some shady car park in Notts and convoy the whole way.

Re: Regional Convoy? - AutoItalia 7th June

I'm sure our fellow midlands alfisti brethren won't let us go alone but if so i'm pretty easy with meeting points to be honest (even in shady car parks-just aslong as it's not at 2am and i've got to flash my headlights and have my sunvisor down to attract attention ) directions on the other hand are my weak point......... Extreme cursing, reving of engine and tyre screeching have always helped in the past but i'm sure i can follow along nicely. I've had a quick scout on the other forum areas and so far i've seen no other "convoys" that might be coming down the M1 but i'm guessing things will fall into place closer to the time.

That would be nice! But you could turn up in a 33 Stradale and it would still be a tenner to get in (per person).

Be good to see you guys at the services. I shall be there, silver GTV, likely unwashed, probably pacing around looking tired. I'm sure the event itself will have an amazing turnout getting on for 50 - even if there are only a few of us midlanders I look forward to meeting up. Dave

I will be at Leicester Forrest East meet. 9.00am Yes? My car has just come back from Newton Abbot. Filthy and birds seem to love the colour because they are crapping on it all the time. See you Sunday.
