Tunerfest north 2017 @ Oulton Park - Convoy List

Post by ChrisHolmes » Mon Jun 26, 2017 7:16 pm

CONVOY TIME

If your going up on the M1, M40, M42, M5, M6 or A14, M6, M6 toll, M6 how about trying to rendezvous and build up a convoy. I have done a first cut of possible services and departure times geared to get us to Oulton Park for 7:30 / 8:00 which is my guess at the required arrival time based on Tunerfest Brands Hatch.
  • Place.................Depart...Miles.......Location

    Cheltenham............05:15........0........Chris House

    Strensham services....05:45.......16.......M5 between J7 and J8 From the South West

    Pat & Caren plus the "crew" below
    James (Civic)
    Scott + Joe (BMW)
    Will + Zac (Civic)


    Little Chef...............07:15.......17.......M6 J16 Fuel top up, Shell garage here. Continue on the A500 & A51 which is the biggest convoy maintaining challenge, keep close and not losing the person behind you is the secret.

    Total.....................2h 15m.....120
If you want to join the convoy then to save cluttering up the thread please PM me with your chosen rendezvous location and your mobile number in case of delays on the day. Please note that the departure times shown are firm and we will have to be leaving at those times so as to arrive in time at the next location.

Chris, the Little Chef in Shrewsbury is very much open.

At the recent meet up at the start of the Mid Wales run they warned us it would be 1 hour before we could have food as they only had 1 chef and a group of about 20 bikers had just sat down.

It was quick to be served after a little over an hour (we were waiting for people outside), but I saw a table of 3 who were already there and were still waiting to be served some 80 minutes later.

What I'm saying is meet at the Little Chef, don't plan on eating at the Little Chef ;)

If you want to join the convoy then please post up your preferred rendezvous point. If I don't have any new joiners at a listed rendezvous point by 14th July then that rendezvous point will be deleted.

Hi DrewPz, will be driving in from the Mold area. Could meet at the Red Lion in Northop, opposite the church if you like at say 07.20. Giving us plenty of time to get to Oulton. :thumleft:
