So we're all driving separately then!!!!

Andy, maybe I could meet you for the drive down? And Ally, I'll certainly join you for the return leg - I'll only be doing 70! ;-)

I'm in London Friday until late, otherwise I would join you for the Friday night Travelodge party!! :party:


Yep, safety in numbers and convoys look great anyway, if you're doing 70, I'll be doing 68 or 71 - I've heard about your flame throwing tactics and there's no way I'm staying in fining range.

I have got a little matter of an MOT, water leaks, no steering wheel and an iffy starter motor to sort out yet, hopefully the weather will be kind to me next week.


Hahaha!!! Yeah, I don't think Pete will ever forgive me for that!! At least it was pre-respray not post!!! :oops: :roll:

2 dyno sessions booked this coming weekend with the tuner so there should be no more flames for silverstone!! I might be flinging grass at silverstone though as I won't get time to have the alignment done before 92Forty! It may make the handling course more like the kick plate!! :dope:

Keep at it Andy, you'll certainly need a steering wheel but I can manage a push if the starter is playing up!! ;-)

Travelling down from M21 on Saturday morning - guess I'll leave about 0730. Going to campsite to pitch up first (so I can cycle in to Towcester for the evening dinner/drinking), then on to Porsche Experience for 1000. Got tickets for the Silverstone meet both days too - so will wander in as and when I get 924 overload!

Sounds good Pete, Olivia has just let me know she has enough flexitime in the bank that she may be taking the whole day off. She'll find out tomorrow if she can, then my set off time can be earlier.

Pete are you still planning to drive down late afternoon or evening? Depending on timing I could meet you guys at the services.
Was leaving early to miss out traffic tbh
