UK Shitefest 2020 *Postponed*

Recommended Posts

You know what they say about men with long journeys.

 

 

Just ike every years since I've been on Autoshite I'd like to come to this but May is busy with work, my son's birthday and the UK Slot festival so will semi-commit to coming in the 924 or the dark beast of many crumpets depending on weekend ( 2.5 hours btw).

I've provisionally booked the field for 1-3rd May (although i'm sure if people want to stay a extra night it won't be a issue). I hope this will be ok with everyone.

We've still got 6 months to sort the details out but there is toilets on site although no showers unfortunately, I think there's water and electric hook up on the field too.

There's a few Travelodge/Premier inns in town, all about 15-20mins away, the Shipwreck pub at the marina also does lodging too.

This is the field during one of our club nights to give you a idea on it's size, the entrance in in the top right of this photo and that's the pub in that corner.

This old fart sees that Premier Inn (Ipswich South) is only 7 miles away, and if you commit to the non-flex deal £31.50 for the Friday night (and bring your own porridge pot...).

£45 for the Sat, £30 for the Sun

I'll be back in the uk 2 days before this, so count me in. Also only an hour or so from me, but will be in the Vivaro (pop up tent in the back!) so I can enjoy a few pints!

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

IF I'm going, and it's a big if at the moment, I could probably pick you up from Harwich, depending on day/time, thus making the whole journey free :)

      With the advent of this pesky virus I for one have been missing things such as car shows, Cannock chod-fests and random meet ups.
      Employing my crystal ball I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, Chumley will be on as the date is mid September. If kids can go back ‘safely’ to a school full of kids then I’m sure an outdoor car show will be fine. Fingers crossed.
      For the new and uninitiated, Chumley Castle car show is a staple of the AS calendar where we bring down the tone of a proper car show by entering rusty Renault 4s, deteriorating Dacias and crumbling Cadillacs (being literally pushed) into the show ring.  The commentator makes for hilarious listening, although we’re usually placed so far away from the ring we can’t hear him.
       Any way who’s in for Chumley this year... if it goes ahead?

      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

      It didn't happen last year because I wasn't fit enough.  This year, and on the wave of having done Inverness for Christmas, I'm feeling up to a south-coast trip again.  This of course means there will be the usual Shiters' lunch meet at the burger van on Portsdown Hill, most likely on Wednesday May 13th.  I'll be in the wheelchair bus, sorry; MrsR has vetoed taking Hairy Pussy even before I've got it home.
      We will also be stopping each way at a Travelodge or Premier Inn somewhere in the Midlands, so there might be an opportunity for a Midlands Massiv Meet too.  Or even two of them!  It worked well enough at Cumbernauld!
