People from last year will know the drill- I'm planning same locations and times- spread the word!. PICS OF PREVIOUS YEARS BELOW!




Third year for this convoy- wow times goes fast! Again I am organising an MG Rover convoy to Pride of Longbridge on SATURDAY 18 TH APRIL 2015. TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY

Arrangements same as last year but here are the details to recap;

We are going to be meeting in the carpark at M25 Clacket Lane services CLOCKWISE about 7am [arrive 6:45] and M40 Beaconsfield services NORTHBOUND about 8am [arrive 7:45].

Anyone with a MG or Rover is welcome to come along. Don't worry if you have slow car, all will be legal 70mph motoring.

Drop your name below and spread the word. Would be great to see 40 MGRs going up the motorway together. :D

There are 2 meeting points for people from the North and South. People from South can meet at M25 services and people from the North area can meet on the M40. People from the South then hook up at the M40 with the other people.

Saturday 18th April.

7am M25- Clacket Lane services - clockwise TN16 2ER

8am M40 Beaconsfield services- northbound. HP9 2SE


Any car with any relation to Longbridge is allowed, old, young, modded, factory. :)

I'm coming up from the coast, will have a chat with the local guys at our next meet (14th) to decide on the plan, but I believe last year they went straight to the Beaconsfield services.

I met you guys at Clackett Lane last year. I was in the MK2 Yellow ZR :)

I'll meet you guys at clackets!!

Ah, will finally get to meet you dude!

Not sure how I've managed to screw this up! I thought it was this weekend! :(

My Dad is/was meant to be coming with me, it's his last day in the UK before he flies back to work. GUTTED.

Well it all went a bit tits up for me! :lol:

Arrived at Beaconsfield at around 7:30, ready for a Maccy D's breakie... only to find out everyone was leaving at about 7:32! What was that all about!?

Was lucky to get there. I then sailed straight past the Hopwood Services where everyone else stopped apparently? I wasn't aware of that!

I was not impressed at all.

Someone appeared to take charge at Beaconsfield and told everyone to leave as per you mention about 10 minutes before the lot from Clacket Lane including me arrived.

I was not told or anything and given that the plan has not changed for the last 4 years I don't know who or why the decision was made. It was not their call. It wound me up no end.

Sorry to hear that it spoilt your time.

I wouldn't have said it spoiled my time, but I was a bit disappointed not to be in amongst a big convoy towards the end. I wasn't aware that you hadn't arrived, I did wonder, but presumed that whoever was leading the cars off knew more than me! :err: Got photos to upload eventually!
