just gauging the level of interest...

ok gents, i'm toying with the idea of doing a multiregion meet at anglesey race track (near holyhead) sometime in the summer. d'you reckon many of you lads would fancy jumping on the ferry over from ireland? i used to work for irish ferries so know it can be a bit pricey to come over during the school holidays so i'm thinking maybe june sometime? whaddaya reckon?

Give it another few months of reassuring words from Mandy and AO will be able to buy a Ferry Co.

Or following the accident at Stranraer and thinking of that film silent running perhaps we could just do an Autotest type event in the inside of a ferry?

Re: just guaging the level of interest...

It would be fun Al Nice one for the offer. We are thinking of coming to Stanford hall So I think we will go for that. As a track day and being in England with no where really to sort our cars. As I have been to Santa pod and they see a load of Irish lads coming over and getting a AA truck home

Re: just guaging the level of interest...

stamford hall is a cracker mate, my fave alfa event of the year. been to the last 2 and they're well worth the journey anglesey is a bit thin-on-the-ground when it comes to specialist garages etc but plenty in holyhead for basic stuff. still just a pie in the sky idea so far though!


PS holyhead's in WALES not england
