Good luck with that and hope to see you! Maybe it's an incentive for moving it forward!?

Fantastic news! I think this time round it will be the more eastern route given the responses so far and SEKZ group will likely join us. But definitely be up for the Goodwood one at a later date. In fact seeing the interest, I'm inspired to plan that one in more in advance. Just awaiting a response from the membership team there to see if we can get a cheeky go round the track without too much cost.

Hey guys,

Just a bump to the thread to check who is still on for it.

I have bought 2 large cans of 20w50 (will be good for 70-100 miles) and praying to the weather Gods!

So far we have:

Me
Huw
Toopy
Bsull
Status (head gasket pending)

Mr F. Would you kindly stoke your group and see if there are other interested parties pls?

Question gang if it is p'ing wet like today, is it no deal for you? In which case shall we just meet up for a beer / pub lunch in ordinary cars? I worry my Z would behave like a Disprin and dissolve on the way there!

Not sure how I missed this thread but I'm always up for a drive out on a Sunday. I'll try not to brake the blue car before then or maybe just bring the rat look silver car.

Awesome Johny!! Look forward to seeing either but most importantly your good self!

Toopy, I have the same thoughts - don't mind the odd bit of windscreen wiper action but don't really like swimming in my Z costume!

Great plan Status - we have to work on that one!

Fellas, the weather God has smiled upon our weekend plans ....



More details to follow about actual route etc.

Question what time is convenient for us to meet? Is 09:00 too early / late?

Great news Tim. Will send out more details this eve.

Had no idea there was a fellow Zedder so close. I bought my car from a seller at Biggin Hill trading as "Mr 911" - and what is a fun coincidence is I am member 911! If you've ever been to his place you know there are some lovely rare cars there.

Look forward to meeting you.

Sunday 28th May: South Meet Anyone?

Fellas,

The weekend is approaching, the weather forecast is good, the Z is on song, I have a full can of oil - hit it! I'm getting excited. But I just can't hide it. Hopefully I won't lose control and I think I'll like it!


The tally so far:


Me (Ali) - Blue 260

Toopy - Maroon 260 2+2

Bsull - silver 240

Status - S30 with new head gasket

JohnyMD - Monster blue 240 or gentleman racer Silver 240 (he has one for every mood!)

Tjrvp - Orange 240



Start:



Meet at the Grasshopper Inn Westerham 09:00 and leave 09:30 to allow for any car issues etc.


Question: the Grasshopper has an empty car park but no coffee at that time of the day. The alternative is to meet at Westerham Costa Coffee but it will be on street parking - which do you prefer?



The route:



1. Head to Sundridge, up Ide Hill and towards Hever castle via Four Elms

2. Photo stop at Hever Castle.

3. Head on to Groombridge estate and grab a coffee / photos (I need to confirm we can go in without having to pay)

4. Then press on to battle for drinks / lunch via Bateman's.





Lunch:


I propose the Squirrel Inn (Sunday Carvery menu) as a potential:

https://www.thesquirrelinn-battle.co.uk/
Or alternatively we can go to the Netherfield arms which gets a great web review also.

http://www.netherfieldarms.co.uk/
Please let me know your preference and if you will have passengers so that I can make us a booking.

From there, we have options depending on commitments / time etc. We can head to Hastings and to the castle or whatever we feel like. Maybe some of the SEKZ members may be tempted out to play?


Please PM me your mobile numbers and any special dietary requirements.

Very much looking forward to seeing you chaps!

Ali
