Sad to say I've had to cancel this Saturday.
Things outside my control have conspired against me on this one. I was really looking forward to seeing everyone. :(
I'll try and get a credit for another track day.

I've no doubt that whatever the weather you'll all have a great time though. Happy beeping. :thumright:

Bad luck John. Good luck with the credit-seeking!
Everyone coming is welcome to stick stuff in the garage - I've never been so popular!! :lol:
After the last track I'm also bringing spare brake pads. (Also fluids and the monster jack / stands etc.) Pondering the spare wheels with rubbish tread - planning to put the new rubber on this afternoon before the drive up, so I might just bring a couple of spare ones anyway...

Alan,

You will find that all the garage is useful for is storage, the cars are a b****r to park in them and they may very well leak judging by the state of them when Chris had one.
Now a distant memory unfortunately.

I should be at the Hotel by 3pm as don't want to be sitting in rush hour traffic if I leave it any later than that :!:

Plan on leaving my place at 10.30am/11am :thumleft:

Will fill up at Leicester Services as they have Shell Fuel and then drive slower to the destination ;)

Remember table is booked for 7.30pm in my name and meet you all in the bar sometime after 7pm :thumright:

There is a shell station at Sutton Elms off the A5 about 5 miles from the Premier Inn. Cheaper than motorway fuel

There is also a Shell here, 2.5 miles from the Premier Inn, which I programmed into my satnav last night:

118 Hinckley Rd, Nuneaton CV11 6LS

Depending on your route, you now have a choice of two Shell refuelling stops en route to the hotel ;)
