Could take the Aprilia RS250 (if I still have it by then). But can't sleep in the back of a bike. Van wins.

You can sleep in a tent you've strapped to it tho, and then we can all swoon over the Aprillia. 

I'll be working one day that weekend, won't know until sky / bt throw a dart at the calendar and pull a time out of their arse when tho, I reckon most options would give me a shot of making a night there. Fingers crossed for Monday night football.

Just looked, 3rd of April is the date it should be announced, it's nice they give everyone involved plenty of notice.

I was going to give the Ips-Fel rally a miss for 2020, but actually this could end up being a really great weekend. Saturday at the field and Sunday on the prom. 

If anyone has anything they fancy showing off on Sunday then I’d encourage it. Also, we could just head over to Christchurch Park where all the cars meet on Sunday AM. 

I guess people can chose to do what they wish!

Good grief-sleep in a tent!? A blow up mattress in the  back of the van is about as close to rough sleeping as I get.

I used to have the same issue with weekend working rotas, except I always seemed to be called out at least once every weekend. No problem with rotas now I've retired-but just as busy, such as not getting back to UK until 30th April.

Maybe I'll stick my Cagiva Mito and Monet Goyon in the van with the RS and bring them down. None are trailer queens and get ridden-hard- whenever possible. Well, the Monet doesn't as it's only coughed and spluttered into life once. I've not tried to start it since.

I love my two strokes.

Hmmm... yes what to bring... 

Yugo probably won’t be ready unless o really pull my finger out, but turning up in it does sound glorious.

2cv not that comfy to sleep in

Saab a bit predictable and boring by comparison but would be good to sleep in. But I may need to leave that as a reliable car for Mrs_b unless she’s bought herself a new motor by then... 

Camper seems far too tame for Shitefest, it even has a loo!

But maybe I’m being previous... I could have bought something entirely different by then! 😂

Pull your finger out of the Yugo and make it work... or tow it in and we'll make it work!

Looks do-able to me! Thanks Trigger.

It'll be the first one I've gone to since the Bubblecar Museum weekend back in 2008.

No staying over for me, but given how local I am I should be able to pop back and forth in whatever is on the road at the time. I haven't yet thought about whether we're doing Ips-Fx, but it sounds like there's the ability to combine the events and make a great weekend out of it.

Get Chaseracer to drive it over, I think he's quicker on it than Hairnet is on the bike 😄

I think I may indeed have needed a dab of oppo at one point.  The hand-throttled, weird-braked, big diesel Massey is a bitch.  And I spanked it.

I have no idea what shift I will be working then and if I'm free I would love to join in the shenanigans.  Not sure if I'll bring the Almera or the bike?

you get great views of...err... Britain’s Premier Port. 

I work there!  Please don't mention it again.

@trigger I might be able to help you if you need it.  I live in Ipsvitch.  All depends on bloody shifts.

its suffolk so tractor or xr3i cabrio :D (so close to essix it hurts :P )

It is insured for road use and taxed, but while the brakes were never great they are now more or less non existent!

I have taken it to the pub in the past!

In. Not sure what I'll be bringing, but I know the Jag is habitable, so to speak. 

Well the guest bedroom suite of my tent will be available, even if I've got Eva she's not going to want to sleep on her own!

      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
