Recommended Posts

Evening Northern shitterists.


There will be a meeting of likeminded car folk in North Shields on Saturday the 11th of August. Down by the river at the fish quay, there will be fish and chips available till about 20:00. Its a nice big car park and theres the Staithes pub across the way for folks who are that way inclined.


Hub-nutter Dollywobbler should be in attendance so here is your chance to buy a decal and offer him a chip.


Would be nice to see a few of your cars and faces so if youve nothing much else on, pop down for handshakes and natterings.


Obviously, absolutely everyone is welcome, no matter what youre driving.

Isn't plan B always to sit in your car with your fish and chips and then having the fan on max and the window down as far as you dare so the rain doesn't come in so the windows demist?

Literally every family trip to the seaside ever taken in the uk

.... Walked all along the path, up over the grass hill onto the carpark, bought extremely expensive 99 from 'man-in-van' then toddled all the way back. Sun was stove baking it :)


Holidays @home.... for all the family*


*anklebiter completed the whole thing staring at her iphone6 [strangely attentive when ice creams were discussed] and was totally disinterested when I offered to explain the history/relevance of the 'High Light & Low Light' navigation beacons :( Kids, eh?

      I have mentioned this to a few shiters over the year and there seems to be some interest so I thought I would make it happen. It also gets the date into the AS Calendar before anything else gets organised for the same weekend.
      The location is half way between Lemans and Tours in Sarthe, Pays de Loire, France, approx 300 miles and 5 hours from Calais, or 120 miles and 2.5 hours from Caen. The date of 3-5 July is the Lemans Classic weekend, where there are great cars on track (where else will you see pre-war Bentleys power sliding and GT40s with glowing brake discs at night) and the car park is probably the biggest and best classic car show in Europe. The AS site is about 25 mins drive from the circuit, with easy access.
      The format is basically whatever you want it to be. The AS base will be at my place in France that a few shiters have visited. I am afraid the bedrooms are already booked, but there is 6 acres of level camping ground,  We will be travelling down from West Sussex via the tunnel and a combination of peage and back roads in a convoy of classics. You are welcome to join the convoy at any point or meet at the venue. We will travel down probably Thursday 2nd and most will return Monday 6th, but some will stay on for a week or two and you are welcome to stay on if you wish. The nearest bar is about 1km away, but 3km away is the famous "Hotel de France" in La Chatre sur le Loir (google it). You do not have to attend the Lemans Classic, if you would rather sit and drink beer (hopefully in the sun) that is fine.
      It will be up to the individuals to organise ferry/tunnel etc and getting there, I can provide camping ground, bogs, showers and a fridge for the beer. No commitment required especially at this stage, If you fancy a foreign trip with your chod, put your name down on the list. Nearer the time those still interested will get further details and the hidden location by PM. If anyone would prefer a B&B obviously they are in high demand around the classic, but I have a few contacts and could possibly find a room or two, but they would need to be booked fairly soon. No booking for camping is required.
      To give you an idea, whilst nothing is yet confirmed, the convoy down is likely to include a Gordon Keeble, a Rolls Royce 20/25, a Westfield, a Mk2 Jag and a Fiesta 1100. It will not be a fast convoy......
      Oooh La La, I'll help destroy the French wine lake

      I may be going to this, work permitting.
      I've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.
