Watch out they are the average speed camera type, so you have to stay at 50mph the whole journey.

Nice to see a lot of members going.

Hopefully with cameras, so us poor sods this side of the pond can see a photo feature of the show.

Im coming south on the M1.
Nothing in the way of roadworks and speed cameras recently,(unless theyve installed one of those .50cal ones! ).
Forecast is snow for the weekend though
See you there!

I'm heading south so, apart from the snow I'm OK

I like the idea of a winter white wash scheme Trouble with snow is you get the double whammy of idiots that think they have to drive at 2 miles per hour, even if it's only forcast snow, and those that can't read the road conditions and travel at 90mph anyway. So we have a million accidents waiting to happen. It aint the snow that'll be the problem it's the accidents on route.

I'll be starting out reasonably early so I hope to avoid the numpties

Oh me, I'm more of a 90mph kinda guy

I suppose that'll be the good thing for staying over the night before. No early start and not as many Numpties
