Solent Shiters Meetup - 8th September, Brewhouse Project, Arundel West Sussex

Recommended Posts

Its been a while since we last had a meetup of southern shiters, and I wondered if anyone was interested in a late summer gathering?

A little while back I was over at Littlehampton, on the way I spotted a potential meetup point:

https://www.brewhouseproject.co.uk/

Its a barn on the Worthing side of Arundel which is a coffee roast house and brewery, and do food too. Just off the A27, by that weird junction where it seems like two different sets of civil engineers approached the same spot from opposite directions, with wildly different ideas about what the road layout was going to be like and made a rather hasty compromise?

There appears to be a decent sized car park too?

Maybe one saturday or sunday in September, but not the 28th and 29th? Any takers?

OK so the 8th works well for me. I can bring some of my collection of rammel to be disposed of too, please step this way if you want or need Vauxhall aux belts, exhaust sections, Hyundai MAF sensors, all sorts of other tat.

Thread title updated accordingly.

Hyundai Mafs... Apparently some are suitable for the Sigma... but I doubt I would be that lucky.... 

How's the house moving looking?

Ferry there with Micra, Hovercraft back, walking to train.

In case you weren't going to, get the train from Portsmouth harbour rather than Portsmouth & Southsea. The walk from the Hovercraft along the prom, through old portsmouth and to The Hard is way nicer than up past the student union and Guildhall and probably less far. Should be the same price too.

You are most welcome to it. Its originally from a 1342cc Mazda b-series 4 cylinder engine but you can try it out. Totally free, I just need rid of this shit. We're going to be moving in with the in-laws for the forseeable future it seems which is flexible, but cramps what little style I have left.

Right, so we're on for this coming Sunday, shall we say 11am ish in the car park?

I'll bring the Diagnostic laptop with me in case anyone wants any codes read or cleared on more recent shite. Anyone attending want any bits from my garage rammel clearup?

I'll have the rest of the Haynes manuals which I'll be bringing with me, (with a collection pot for a local charity) if they're of any use to anyone. @nigel bickle I have a Samara one if it's of any use to you (I can put it by).

If anyone is stuck for a lift or coming by choochoopuff I can collect from Chichester, Barnham, Bognor, Arundel or Littlehampton stations.

      This years NEC Classic Motor show November 8-10 is almost with us.

      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
