    I am gutted. I have got to work Sunday until about 1 or 2ish  <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':('> . I will try and come across after that if I am not held up, it is only 20 minutes away.

    I will look out for your cars as I wont know what any of you look like, <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>  and hope I will spot one of you.

    So far I have Koolvin and Maff meeting me at Oxford Services (M40 Junction 8?).

    Mark says that at 11<img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wow.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':0'>0 we may struggle to get group parking. Anyone for making it 10:30? I am an early bird, but I know it's Sunday and not all people are like me (thank god).

    Anyhow just wanted to point out that M40 may not be the most direct route for you guys, looking at the map M1 is definatley closer. I am prepared to still meet there if you want for gathering purposes, but be warned it it is going to take an hour 20 ish to get to the Pod from there, and any local knowledge I have is not going to much of an advantage as you both have Sat Nav!!!!

    If you are OK to meet at M40 about 9ish, then fine.


    How about Rothersthorpe or Newport Pagnell Services on M1??

    I think i'm going to come down the M1.... I would drive with Maff but he'd blast me on the motorway, maybee I should let him drive my POS of a engine?

    I know maybee we could all help me mod maff's into a CL180 and mine into a C500 LOL

    thank god for my turbo coming s00n.

    Newport Pagnell services at 10 am it is.

    The Pagnell Services are south of Northampton and the Pod, so we are meeting on the Northbound side of the M1 right??

    See you there.

    Yeah, trouble is it's my own business and we are trying to sort out some stock for a potentially very good customer and it has been arranged to go through his existing stock tomorrow when he is closed. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':('>

    Guys

    A family meeting has been called for tomorrow due to the unforunate incident on Thursday and my parents will need my support.

    This means that I will now definately not be attending, My apologies for setting this up initially and then letting everyone down bynot showing up - but I reckon most folks here will understand.

    BTW If it does rain they will use a jet engine to dry the track, so there is a good chance they will still run when it stops

    Have a fantastic day and I hope it stays dry for you.
    So lads - you need to beat the 14.59 set by my little 2.0 Nova <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':)'>
    I expect most of the 500 boys to come close or beat it!
    Mark

    Koolvin,

    My manual v your auto, loser buys the tea. <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=';)'>

    P.S. You had better bring some tea bags <img src="http://www.mbclub.co.uk/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif" border="0" valign="absmiddle" alt=':D'>

    P.P.S, Mark, this could become an annual event, well done for thinking of it, and see you there next time if not somewhere else.
