I'll probably be arriving at the last minute (other commitments early Sunday morning), so I likely won't be able to join the convoy - I'll just have to go where I am put.

Arrival is between 8-10:00. Once the cars start arriving, the waiting to park queues get long.

Station Road is long with a 4/5 car layby just before we get pass checked where we could hang . There is also a surface car park just after where we could meet.

Stick a time for what is best for you all. And we can get a feel of the best time to over heat.

On List that I can see:
Trevor
Richard G
Stu
Darren
Phil

Any more? I have some spare naughty passes. :shock:

Stu. Add me in. I've got a legit pass 😀.
Does a meet around 8:45 make sense?

If my map reading skills are correct- is there a Tesco superstore at the end of Station Road ? Perhaps we could meet in the car park at 8.45, do a few doughnuts (joking, more likely buy a few !!) and then head off ??

Car rebuilt - test drive- failed to return home under own steam 😭.
Finally home with car, but got fuel starvation so won't be joining you for the 8:45 meet up. I'll take a look in the morning, but I think the fuel pump has given up. Certainly not heard it tick recently.
I may come over in which ever car is on the road slightly later in the say, fingers crossed. And weather permitting.

That TVR400 reminds me of my 390se that I had back in 1988, 275bhp, 0 to 100mph in 11.7 sec. One of the few cars I have regretted selling, but it was worth more than the flat we were living in at the time so it had to go.
