Re: Auto Italia day

this ones going to be an early morning leave i would imagine.....

If anyones up for a convoy up this will be the route i will take up...

The Route

Key stops would be Membury services and one of the services near Oxford or the services right by the M40

Let me know if you are interested, i'll work out what time we need to be where

Re: Auto Italia day

just giving this a bump....

I will be leaving plymouth about 6am, 1st stop will be Michael Wood services at about 8.30 for a splash and a dash and then on to Lutterworth

We are planning to meet up with other regions just before 10am at a travelodge not far from Stanford Hall, this means we can all get in together as one big group

Hi Jay,

Almost done on convincing the missus. She even said she enjoyed Brooklands last month

Are you still planning a convoy up? Are you stopping anywhere near oxford or surrounding areas?? I understand the South East guys are stopping near Milton Keynes..

Let me know what the crack is!
Cheers

the route

it means we will me M5, M42 and then M6, a bit boring but about an hour quicker

Now that is a much better route, going through our neck of the woods.

If you don't mind a quick stop I'll be glad to join your convoy. Either Strensham Northbound (just past M50 junction) or M42 Hopwood eastbound would be magic, just say where and when.

Sorry Mate, i was looking at it tonight and it would have meant me doing another 150 during the day and 3 hours driving

Davey, not an problem

I have Rodz1300 possibly meeting me at Michael Wood services I reckon we will be passing Strensham at about 8.45-9.00 and Hopwood park will be about 30 mins after that.

PM me your number, and i can let you know our precise ETA on the day, how does that sound?

We have to be just outside Stanford hall at about 10.20 - 10.30 so AO can all get in as a group and park together
