lol, nevermind mate. i took the satnav last year to the rtoc national day and still got lost :oops:

06-01-2006, 22:03
was thinking of a little convoy... there is a thread on clio sport about it :D

Could use the Donnington Park Services for the nottingham/derby crew and then a services near leciester for them lot and then a mass convoy down to the pod... ive only been once and had a map and directions and almost got lost however this time ive got TomTom on my side... :D

Gav

sounds good to me

so where can me n scott meet u?

and do we have to cruise down with cliosport? :cry:

08-01-2006, 16:31
Was chatting to scott about it today... we reckon donny park services (j23a) would be good for the nottingham derby lot. Then for the leciester lot meet up at leciester forest services (in between j21a and j21)?

LoL @ cliosport, i think there is a couple going from there so would be rude not to allow them to join :lol:

Scott-16v!

lol gav there's nowt wrong with any of the cliosport lot that were at the meet today, was a good turnout aswell :D
take a look http://www.cliosport.net/forum/showthread.php?t=113464 :wink:
those services where we had the meet today would be a good place to meet up for us lot that are further up the midlands. then perhaps pick the rest of you up further down the motorway.

sounds good to me just give me a map or postcode and im there

Right this might take a bit of explaining. Here is what i was thinking...

The trip from Donnington Park Services to Santa Pod takes about 1hr 20mins (with 5 min stops) and is a total of 71miles. Below are a list of locations which can be used for people to meet and then join the convoy. There are 3 locations in all which allow people from Nottingham, Derby, Leciester and people above and below them places to join the convoy.

Possible Locations for meetings

1. Nottingham/Derby and people north of Nottingham/Derby

Location: Donnington Park Services (M1, J23a)
Time: 7.45 am
Map: http://www.zen32679.zen.co.uk/PodMeet/Location1.jpg

Location: Leciest Forest East Services (M1, between J21a & J21)
Time: 8.00 am
Map: http://www.zen32679.zen.co.uk/PodMeet/Location2.jpg

3. All people south of Leciester, poss Coventry people and West Mids

What you think?

Ok, i know you lot dont like the ClioSport lot however being Area Rep for the east mids my ties sort of lie there... so ive created this thread and a site with the arrangements for the convoy.
