Pub meets, drives and social events. For good food and good company while the car stays in the car park, or for a pleasurable drive through the countryside.

At the next meet, weather permitting I wonder if there is someone who can handle a car, who would like to take mine out for a bit of a spin (not literally if course) I'm just curious as to if it's behaving how it should, I've had new tyres(400 miles on them) new drop links, track rod ends, new pz struts, rear control arms and suspension and steering set up, after all of this the cars handling characteristics have changed a few times, so I'm not certain how good the handling is (in theory should be good) anyone up for this (or before if your localish to Coventry)

As much as I'd like this, I would be mortified if something happened to my car, not sure if it could handle the shock of being tracked. 🤣

How about all meeting up in some way :?: , seeing Pubs inside are off limits :(

Maybe do a little drive in some way :roll:

Are there any Pubs/Fast Food in the area doing Take Aways or Roadside Food Vans in the area :?:

Outside Meet would be possible seeing we all have Camping Chairs for Events we go to with the Club :thumright:

I recently attended the cotswold meet, it made a refreshing change, getting out and about, ended up with a decent kebab whilst still maintaining social distance, it's easier in cars than tescos

I notice the ‘normal’ venue in the OP is literally 15 minutes down the road from me - I feel like it’d be rude not to come along once it’s happening again!

Assuming you're all happy to have a new person who may ask silly questions??
