TOPIC: X1/9 convoy to Brooklands May 4th

X1/9 convoy to Brooklands May 4th 1 month 5 days ago #40316

Fortunately this year I have been able to book off from work the Saturday for Brooklands Auto Italia on May 4th. I haven't been since 2014, but back then we organised a meet up prior and went down in convoy. I'll always remember looking back in my rear view mirror and seeing nothing but X1/9s and Montecarlos on every lane of the motorway. I live in the middle between Hereford and Worcester, so would either be heading the Gloucester A417 south way or the more scenic Evesham/Cotswolds/Oxford way. We had 24 X19's when I attending this event so I'd like to shout about it and get everyone interested!

I have contacted Phil Ward of AutoItalia Magazine requesting that both the X1/9s and Fiat Coupes be allocated specific areas where we can actually find our friends and chat without having to search the entire site. ( I am also involved with the Coupe Club)
The problem is that volunteer marshals at Brooklands don't seem to stick to the site plan on the day. I have asked Phil to emphasise the need for this to be resolved urgently.

A general point is that it is worth getting there as early as possible as there can be queues at the gate,
Also the local roads cannot cope if there is an incident. This year I tried to take my X1/9 to the new years day meeting only to hit a non-moving traffic queue 3 miles from Brooklands due to an accident. The delay to traffic was over an hour: I turned round and went home.

I hope to go again and you’re even welcome to meet at my house to reconvene before heading to Brooklands as I’m only 30mins away the other side of the m25. I’m sure the neighbours would be impressed too!
