The AROC will holding its annual national gathering at Basildon Park, which is owned by the National Trust and is a Grade I listed building.

The event will feature the AROC's National Concours d’Elegance competition on the elegant lawn fronting the mansion, model register and Alfa Romeo main dealer displays, trade and private stands, offering all manner of Alfa-related automobilia, accessories, miniatures and literature.

I'm think a nice early morning convoy prior heading to Basildon Park will be in order and possibly meet up with AOWS (Tess and her motley crew) for this

I'm already looking forward to this as it is one of the big shows for the year

The plan is this......

1st meeting at Leigh Delamere services 8.15 for an 8.30 leave

2nd Meeting point Membury services 9.00 for a 9.10 leave

See you on Sunday :thumbs:

The plan for NAD....

In order to enjoy the day we ideally need to be there for about
9.30-10.00, and we are coming from all over the SW/S Wales so meeting
point will be Leigh Delamere services East bound on the M4.

Meet there about 8.15 for a 8.30 (ish) leave

See you all there

Jay can we have a second meet point at Membury as I don't get on the M4 til J15??

Is there somewhere near Basildon Park where all the regional convoys can meet so we can all go in and park up together?

I'm not sure about this one just yet Tess, but will let you know. I think I'd probably have to leave the house by about 6:30am just to get the Leigh Delamare! There goes my Sunday sleep-in! :cry:

been having a look for somewhere suitable for all the regions to meet and found this place, its just off J12 on the M4, if everyone is happy with it we just need to decide which company's car park to hijack!

Area Map for Offices and the Park | Arlington Business Park

Jay/Tess, if you want to do the necessary checking with other regions that would be good :thumbsup:

Tess/Jay hope this is ok, I've done a little more checking and from Membury services to the business park its about 30 mins so us S West/Wales lot should get there about 9:40/9:45, I've picked a company (KPMG) at random to use their car park and this is the post code - RG7 4SD - and from here its only about 15 mins to Basildon Park. I've posted this in the S Central NAD thread as we already have a few takers to meet us there, but you may want to post it elsewhere as well.

Okey doke, looks like we have a plan forming for a meeting place.......

The South West/South Wales gang have 2 meeting points:

1st meeting point Leigh Delamere services (M4) 8.15 for an 8.30 leave

2nd meeting point Membury services (M4) 9.00 for a 9.10 leave to arrive at.......

the general meeting point at 9.45 at Arlington Business Park just off J12 (M4), we can hi-jack KPMG's car park :wow: - post code is RG7 4SD - and leave when everyone is all present and correct to convoy up to Basildon Park which is a 15ish min drive away.

Hope this is ok for anyone who wants to join up with us :Bluesmile:

Hi Oui, hmm forgotten about that, was going A417 Ciren/Swindon route but I guess that'll be pretty busy won't it, arrrgh means leaving even earlier to go M5/M4 :banghead: but maybe that's better than getting stuck in the traffic for Fairford, in which case I'll be meeting up with the gang at Leigh Delamare services instead at 8:15.
