With the Porsche on the Prom arriving in a couple of weeks, it was agreed that we should organise a convoy to the event, with pick up points on the way.
A few of us will meet in Wilmslow as a starting point and then driving to a couple of well placed rendezvous points to join the convoy. Google maps state a 90min drive from Wilmslow to Llandudno.
Can I ask those interested in joining the convoy for input as to departure time from this end, and also convenient locations on the way for the rendezvous points. I'm thinking max of 3 collection points inclusive of the start as we won't get there until Xmas otherwise,
So please , pop your ideas done and let's lock it all in.

TIA
FZP

I don't want to commit as yet as my car goes under the knife next week having its yearly service, new front discs and pads, new front shocks, top mounts & bump stops. Knowing my luck, my man will find some knackered suspension part and the car will be off the road a couple of days nooo


Although I'm tempted to jump on a train with a pocket full of dosh and go and buy this: https://www.autotrader.co.uk/classified/advert/201905037576548

So may rock up in that Grin

Any of us Chester North Wales bods can tag on there, it is a McDonalds & service station pull in just after Queensferry if I am thinking of the same place
last year I went after 9.30 am & everyone was already at Llandudno all 700 of them suggest pick up point there at 9.00 am.

Most likely meet at the Costa in town anything before 10am on a Sunday leaves plenty of parking options available.

I am only 18 miles away from the Prom, so I will make my own way there.

Might do the scenic route instead of the A55.


Are there any of the 911uk.com window stickers available? I forgot to have a go at removing the one I had in my old car.

.......Oh I forgot to mention that there are specs cameras on the A55 around the Rhuallt area.

I think they were installed at the end of May last year....therefore, if you travelled to last year's event, they probably weren't there.

Take care. Thumb

What time are you meeting at Costa? Is that the one on the corner of Alderley Road/Parkway?
