Sorry - just seen this - how about getting Lipscomes invited to the meet - they are on the same road as the Malta Inn just about 1 min away - a little quicker in a GTA :lol:

Does anyone use them yet as they might be the best person to approach them?

I went to their Aldo Zilli night but still use Northgate Canterbury.

I have used them but not since early Dec. Their service has slipped a little since they first got the franchise imo.

Re: Kent Meet-Up at the Malta Inn

I'll get on to them and see if they're interested in popping along :thumbs: Although we may have another dealership involved as well

As for the route I'm still trying a few ideas as that first one was my initial thought. All depends how far people want to drive, I've got a slightly longer route 75 miles + which involves camber and rye and some of the roads round there.

Re: Kent Meet-Up at the Malta Inn

I have just put a deposit on a 147 gta at lipscomb's, the chap I was dealing with is Paul, he seems to deal with the lotus side of things not sure who the alfa chap is i think his name was richard. They are very nice there and couldn't do enough for me. I will be picking the beast up next saturday so with any luck i will be come along with my new toy on the 1st. meeting at lipscombes sounds like a good idea to me,

Re: Kent Meet-Up at the Malta Inn

Update lipscombes just responded and said we're welcome to pop down anytime between 10 - 4.

How about we meet at Lipscombes 11.00 and then set off on the run about 12 then go back to the Malta Inn for lunch.. I'll put together a two hour-ish route :)

ETA

Here's one idea for a route

http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=...0+to:51.278988,0.517640+to:51.296219,0.508830

which is about 2 1/2 hours we can stop at Rye mid way
