After winning the best small club award last year ;-) I have signed us up for this year!
As you know, itís at Castle Combe circuit in Wiltshire. Itís a great event with lots to see. It is probably the most notorious track in the UK, so the club track sessions and drifting are very entertaining.
We had around ten cars last year. Iíd be very happy if we got that number this year. But Iíd also be very pleased with 50! If only we still drove our cars?!

Details below. You need to buy tickets online. They are £15.00 per car admitting up to four occupants. For anyone having trouble finding the date. Itís in the title. There there.

The club code is: NSXJDM

Cheers,

James.

152.4 to be exact ... or put another way, a tank of fuel for a great day out ...

I was at the first club event ... I even organised the largest (the same year I got married) ... and I’ll see you Gents again in a couple of months ...

I cant guarantee it’ll be clean when I get there but will at least throw some soapy water in its direction before I leave home ... besides, they look good dirty ...

I presume you’ll accept minor mods on your display ... :)

Hi Paul,

happy to meet up on the way.
Which way around the M25 are you heading, Are you going south to avoid the M4 roadworks?

I hadn’t given it that much thought Olly ... plus if only 9 of us, should we all try to meet near the event and arrive together? I remember the Supra club did this one year and it looks very good ....

If decision is north them maybe South Mimms ... if south, the new services near J10?

Havent got around to cleaning yet as weather has been on/off showers over here the past few days ... although weekend forecast is for scorchio weather so be sure all to pack your sun protection lotions or potions!

Let me know time and place and I’ll be there ... thanx, Paul

Hi Paul,

South Mimms is a big detour for me but Cobham services (Near J10, M25) is good or if your travelling around the top then I guess Chievely services would be the next meeting point.
Are you meeting Kare locally?
Pride and Mark N, is Cobham good for you guys?
If we are all going to meet before going into the circuit then guess we should leave the meeting point for this to James?

Olly

Had a look at times,

Leave Cobham services at 7am
Leave Chievely services at 8am
This should give us an arrival at Castle Coombe about 9am
Does this sound OK to everyone?

I will be heading a little more cross country from the North - I seem to recall there were directions to a particular postcode - but of course I have lost those !

Just wanted to say a thank you to everyone who made it today! It was great to catch up. The weather was fantastic. Although there was no escape from the sun.
The track sessions were fun to watch. There are a lot more track prepped cars on the circuit these days.
Also, to anyone who got stuck in painful traffic jams of old (Japfest). There were no hold-ups this year, which must mean they have the traffic thing sorted.
Anyway, if anyone who attended has the vaguest idea how to post photos on this site, please post here.

Cheers,

James
