I think Carl and Dave are looking at coming to this in January. They have the Yaris GRs that attend shows with us and have recently signed up to the forum. Though I expect Carl will likely bring his M2 or new M240i to one of these. Suppose we shall find out soon enough....

Carl will be attending with Erika, he has forgot his login details. For ease I shall pop them in here seen as it's a pre-order:

White bait

Cheese garlic bread

Chicken and bacon tagliatelle

Lamb shoulder

There may be another Yaris GR with Ean coming along aswell. They are the usual GRs that do things with us, some may of met them at last year's Simply Jap Beulieu. Awaiting confirmation on Ean.

IMPORTANT. Please note anybody coming from the Shaftesbury direction that the B3081 is CLOSED near the petrol station start point. The alternative is to take the A30 past the Udder Farm shop and then turn Right onto Back Street which is the B3092 to Gillingham. Then when you reach the Traffic lights turn right onto the B3081 heading towards the petrol station from the other direction. Alternative route is approx 10 mins longer.
