NC500 July 2017

Post by Peter.V » Sat May 20, 2017 6:51 pm

Guys,

Me and the mrs decided to do the NC500 in July for our anniversary, but it'd be even better to make a little meet/convoy/babybmw party out of it!
Initial plans are a bit vague, but we'd like to complete the course over 4-5 days maximum, stopping at places where there's something to see.

Anyone who's up for this?

Only just seen this Peter. Have you made any plans? I've just come back from an epic weeks holiday in Scotland.

No plans as such yet, Rob.

Did you take the m3 or the 911? :) (first world problems) :D

Haha neither. Took a motorhome instead but was class. Saw loads of Porsches, Ferraris, caterhams and other nice cars doing the route.

Did you get any interest for this trip?

Hehe, I didn't take you for a motorhome kind of person!
No interest, but I'd still want to go.

Haha I'll take that as a compliment ;-)

I posted a similar thread on M3cutters when I got home. It really was epic. Would be good if we could get a few cars together.

Wonder if there would be more uptake on Pistonheads? I could maybe put a few feelers out on there...

Cool!

In the meantime, we should have a drive over to North Yorkshire or the Peak District if you get a day off!

Would be nice to get a drive out but would have to be early on a Sunday morning I think. I'll have a look at my diary
