Last year at Hardwick Hall was a great day out.

Good weather and great company with a resonable show of cars

MITCAR 2014 is to be held at Rockingham Castle. Leicestershire. LE16 8TH

Full details can be found here....
http://www.aroc-uk.com/eastmids/mitcar.html

For those that would like to convoy to this event I shall be leaving Donington Services (http://motorwayservicesonline.co.uk/Donington_Park) around 9.00am and aim to arrive at Rockingham Castle for 10.30am, taking in some scenic countryside route along the way

If past convoys are anything to go by it'll certainly be an adventure

This is the proposed route .... assuming I don't mess up

From the services we shall travel along the A453 past the airport, turning left for Diseworth. Through Diseworth - Long Whatton - Normanton on Soar (A6006) passing through Rempstone, Wymeswold. After Wymeswold we'll swing a right onto the A46 south and come off at Queniborough. Here we shall turn left onto the A607 to the first island. Take the third exit onto Rearsby Road and then left onto Queniborough Road which will take us to the B6047. Swinging right heading south we'll hook up with the A47 and turn left towards Uppingham. At Uppingham we'll turn right heading south onto the A6003 passing through the village of Caldecott and arriving full of enthusiasum at Rockingham .... what could possibly go wrong


Entrance price will be £10 per car, giving ALL occupants admission to the special MITCAR display in The Great Park plus the beautiful castle and gardens.

I've never been to Rockingham Castle, but I'm guessing it's ideal for a picnic

Get your RSVP yes's in folks

Thanks to Gabster for raising this

Morning all, sorry it's been a while, I've been busy 'on the other side' with AROC UK. I'm now the MiTo Registrar and as such we're organising a MiTo line-up at MITCAR, with a MiTo competition and prizes. If you were at AutoItalia at Stanford Hall a couple of weeks back we have a practice run, with about 20 MiTo's along the bank of the Avon. Hope to catch up with you all next month at Rockingham Castle!

I'll be going - even the missus wants to have a shuftie so it may or may not end in tears somewhere down the line (if you get my drift!).

Do we need to pre book and can we just pay on the gate...?

Cheers - looking forward to this as I missed the Stanford Hall do.
