Shitefest 7th -9th June 2019

Recommended Posts

The MGB wouldn't mind a run down there.

It'd love it. However if I said that I was bringing it, no one would believe me...

 

At least if it broke down, it wouldn't be too far for it to be flatbedded down. In that event it could be used as the kindling for the evening bonfire.

Does this mean I have to buy something shite to attend ?? Living over towards the East shite is difficult to come by.. My 05 Berlingo is considered shite, it is already the oldest car in the close, the next oldest car is a 2011... and that's mine too...

Tbh just turning up in whatever transport you have that will get you there is generally the done thing!

Berlingo will make a swell tent, but if the 2011 thing will waft you down in supreme comfort you can just park at the outskirts!

 

Ive turned up in a Laguna 2 for my last 2 shitefests and didn't get set on fire once!

She's with me so the odd box is ticked.

 

A road trip to Sweden was mentioned for her 40th, so it could be a busy (and expensive) month!

Travel at night and we'll all talk like the Swedish Chef - She'll never know the difference unless she's actually Swedish :)

I'm at work which means I'm technically closer than my home address too I think... c7faa29d35fadfc2d57d2f40254c7b66.jpg

Pah, I'm another 120+ miles north of you!

 

Bus shenanigans a possibility? Although at single-figures MPGs probably not!

Mrs has declined to come with me, I doubt I'll convince madam as well. Hopefully I'll have some working wheels as I doubt I'll have use of the Corolla for the weekend. I'll bring some home-brew vino, my camping stove and a teapot & cafetière for the teetotallers as well.

I’m in. I can’t see any reason why I couldn’t do any of those dates given this much notice, so I haven’t voted.

I could do any of those dates, so I voted all of them! My reasoning being that it gives some idea of numbers.

Pleased to see the first option currently has zero. I'm at Coventry Motofest that weekend, with some 2CV celebrations in mind.

Me too!! So I hope it’s not that weekend.

 

I’m determined to break my Shitefest duck, I mean it’s a whole hour and a half closer than last year! Only 5 hours! The good lady will probably want to come too... she seems to like the shiters she’s met!

I did the same. By then I'd have been retired three months. Woo-fucking-hoo.

 

May feel a bit guilty if I haven't managed to find a shiter in those three months, but at least I will be able sleep with some comfort in the back of the Vivaro, which is a bit of a consulation.

      While I’m feeling sociable and non stressed. Does anyone fancy meeting up at Staplefield on the 3rd November to watch the veteran car rally? The pub does a good bbq breakfast.

      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
