Hi All.

 

Thought it's best to put plans for a convoy up here to allow all from the South to see.

 

As everyone would probably attack this in lots of different routes depending on where in south you are, I thought perhaps we could all meet at a car park on the last leg of the journey. One of the lads (Goz28) suggested Wheatley Services, Oxford, along the M40 which is the motorway which will take us to Silverstone. This way we can all gather for a chat and some breakfast and everyone has somewhere to wait if they're making too much progress!! 

 

So, I'll be aiming to arrive by 7am 6:30am and we have discussed that we will leave the services at 7:45 7 to allow us time to drive to, queue, and park at Silverstone.

 

If everyone could write if they're up for meeting here, it would be nice to get a few people involved (please also link to other southern members who may not see this!) 

 

Cheers 

 

James

(Admin, If you'd prefer me to put this in the south central forum please feel free to move it, but thought it was best to put here to allow all southern members to see).

tbh mate I've never been so not quite sure how it all works! - just no one had organised anything for the south lot so thought I'd give it a punt. ( Also I don't even have a stand pass  :cry: )

 

Any suggestion on time?

There doesn't seem to be anyone in my region, central, that is close by. So I would happily meet you guys at Wheatley services as it only bout 20 mins away. Be good to be part of a convoy!

If we meet at Wheatley Services for 7:00ish and aim to leave for 7:15ish that gives us 30 minutes drive up to Silverstone to start the queuing! The club staff don't usually like us arriving at the club stand earlier than 8AM, so parking up a little after that will keep us on their good side! :lol:

 

If you don't have a stand pass, I don't think you can get in until about 9 though. :sleeping:

I would love to meet up for this but atm I don't know when my car will be back. Can u pay on the gate as I'm not that fussed about being on the "stand" this year.

Even getting in at 9 last year was fine hardly had to que, just had to listen to T5josh popping his exhaust all the way in lol, and then got told off on the way out for the same thing lol.

Yeah sorry I thought it was a good idea to create one in the general ford fair section so we can appeal to not only south east but any others going past Wheatley. But it has got a bit confusing  :unsure:

 

Yes 7pm am* is good.
