Re: Platts in Stoke MiTo Launch

Assuming I can make this (80% positive I can now), does anyone fancy convoying up the motorway? It would be good to make an entrance

Convoy. Cool. We'll be joining the M6 at junction 2 so happy to fall in with anyone's plans. Do we get to blast up the toll?

Re: Platts in Stoke MiTo Launch

I can now definitely make this Only problem now is when am I going to clean the GTA between now and Saturday morning?

I'm too far west to justify going on the toll, but meeting up somewhere north of j9 sounds good. Time?

My bum has and it's lush (and the car seat)

Provided David is there and it's not too mad, I reckon we'll get to have a seat

Personally I'd prefer to be there earlier rather than later - have to be back in work in Worcester by 4.30pm.

Re: Platts in Stoke MiTo Launch

Really looking forward to this now

Can't wait to see (and hear) an 8C in the metal, and I'll also be really interested to see how the Mito drives.

Many thanks to Platts for inviting us

Re: Platts in Stoke MiTo Launch

Only just spotted this one guys. I had a pre-launch spin round the block in a MiTo diesel on monday night @ Budgens in Shrewsbury and was quite impressed with the little beastie. The 159 Ti Q4 2.4 JTDm they have as a demo was even more impressive tho' (time to start saving the pennies to buy one). I'll try to join you at Hilton for this one but can't promise yet as may have to work saturday.
