With power of social media... Think we had 15 in the end. Thumb

Route worked out ok I thought
No cameras or motorbikes or horses.
A few cyclists and Sunday drivers .... But on balance , nice drive and certainly more interesting that the dual carriageway

Thanks chaps for meeting up

Thanks for sorting the route out Guy, yes some good roads.
Not much you can do if the dates clashed with a cycling club having a time trial on the same roads. I felt for them.

Here's a pic of the pre meet Thumb

Thanks for sorting that out Guy, quite exhilarating seeing and hearing a load of 911's giving it plenty.

Not sure who was in the green 996 turbo but it was most enjoyable being sandwiched between that and Terry for a few miles until 'Driving Miss Daisy' in her Fiesta held everyone up!!!!

Yeah, that can only be me - not much green around!

Here is a little link to a clip of us leaving, gives a good idea of the range of cars. Sorry, don't know how to embed a video so click the link and then click the file to download.

Nice route 'Geez Thumb

Congrats At 400 yards you now hold the record for losing the last third of the convoy quicker than anyone else.

Of course it wouldn't have happened without my help. I knew I should have told Helga those way-points. Embarassed

Apologies to those of you that followed me the wrong way up the A414 but at least catching up the 7 mile head start we gave the others was a bit of extra fun. Very Happy

After missing last weekend it was nice to catch up with you all. I took a few photos after we initially met up. Thanks Guy for organising the route to the castle, it was a blast Driving

30 seconds after leaving McDonalds:



10 minutes later and after getting lost with LondonRob and then finding everyone Floor



Still together



The happiest builder I have seen in a long time



One of many overtakes I witnessed via Rob and Scott



Roll on Spa next weekend.

Ah that photo explains why it split up so quickly
Half the convoy got caught at lights frustrated Grin

I waited at those lights even on green, and the next set, and in a lay-by a mile up the a414

Sorry Embarassed #VirginConvoyLeader
