How do you fancy the idea of meeting up somewhere and then having quite a long drive (yep-the midlands snake again!) to somewhere else?

One idea - meet at Donington (good size car park) and then head off possibly to Silverstone?

Wot dya reckon guys?

Sounds like fun :)
On a drive that long with that many cars we wud probably need 2 set off in smaller groups or have re-group points en-route , this wud avoid people panicking and taking risks 2 stay in touch with the main group when pulling out at junctions or passing thru traffic lights and roundabouts.
Either that or we cud hire helicopter escort with radio contact 2 keep people together and warn of any official intervention :)

Teri,

Sounds like a good idea. But why Silverstone? Did you suggest that because of what may be on a particular day or for just the drive? If its for just the drive, then can I suggest starting at some meeting point and ending up at a suitable pub somewhere where we can have a laugh, something to eat and drink etc.

The wife just suggested why don't we come over your way, like why not have a snake to the east coast and pick you lot up en-route? What do you think? What does anyone else think about that? Or are the East roads just too boring ? :D

There are some really good roads around Lincolnshire/East coast etc, some quite nice windy ones.

There is something in the making for Silverstone, Ryan is going to post some details really soon about that.

Was thinking of a long drive meeting but was struggling to think of where to meet and where to drive to. As many ideas/thoughts from everyone else would be really helpfull in pulling these things off!

Looking at the map, could have a Notts area meet/convoy and a Brummy area meet/convoy and Leics area meet/convoy and then all probably meet/join up at some point on the M1 nr Northampton

What does everyone else think, could be a practise run for the big Castle Coombe day in July?

Teri,
Sounds like a very good idea. As usual, put me and Su down for this one. Definitely like the idea of convoy type meet :) Should be good fun proving to Lee that even with 350bhp, he still can't drive around corners that well!!!
