Guys if you are coming on Sunday can i ask you to have a look at this link below, it was posted on the UK events board, apologies if you have already looked at it

http://www.alfaowner.com/guinness-record-attempt/




Allems of Epsom are attempting a world record, the most amount of Alfas in a convoy, they need over 200.

http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/allams-alfa-romeo-of-epsom/197296-guinness-world-record-attempt-alfa-convoy.html


Because of the size of the S. West area i have no doubt that some people will be travelling up the m5/m4 and some will use the A303.

The RSVP is for those who are travelling up on the Sunday if you are travelling up on the saturday night please keep a note of the postcode and time of meeting ;)

The postcode is KT19 9AS, we need to be there for 12pm

I have put together a route from Plymouth to Epsom

Meeting points are:
1) Sainsburys - Marsh mills roundabout 7.00 for 7.15 leave
2) point B Exeter services - Jct 30 M5 8:00 for 8:10 leave
3) Point C on the map - postcode BA12 8AP - 9:40 for 9:50 leave, This is where i become one of the group picking up my Alfa for the day :D Cheers K9 :thumbs:
4) Point D is Fleet services on the M3, i have put this in as a quick 'splash and dash' Arrive 11.00 and leave as soon after as possible
5) Point E - Destination - As close to 12pm as possible

||The Route


If anyone is putting together a route from that encompasses the M5/M4 please feel free to send it to me and i will add it to this

The Record attempt is now fully booked, if you haven't got confirmation/PM'd Allems then unfortunately it may be too late, it would be worth asking to be put on the reserve list just in case someone drops out

I have updated the times, K9 has commented that we are cutting it fine to get there for 12pm, so i have moved the times back 30 mins, sorry guys

Finally!!! i have put together a route and timings to get from Bristol to Epsom

Meeting point Asda Cribbs Causeway 8:50 for a 9am Depart
1st stop - Leigh Delamere services M4 - arrive 9:30 Depart 9:40
2nd stop - Reading Services M4 - Arrive 10:40 Depart 10:45
Arrive Epsom 11:45

I am running down the A303, is there anyone who will be going from Bristol would would like to head up the Convoy, if so can you PM me

For anyone travelling the A303-M3 route, point C on the map is the "Lakeside Garden Centre" a right turn for anyone with Jay, there should be a sign on the road for "Grays Carpets" it's his carpark we are invading :)
After you leave the main road it's the 1st carpark on the left, I will be there early and will wave down any passing Alfas, just hope they are part of the convoy :lol:

Jay just looked at your exit point on the A303 to meet me, you would be better going to the next junction and along the A350, it's a much better road.
