UK Shitefest 2020 *Postponed*

Recommended Posts

Been thinking @LightBulbFun ill be going around the m25 for this, could meet you and drive as a plan B or c? 

Only issue is I'll be in my tent so either find yourself a fucking good fishing bed or book a hotel and me/someone can drive you to it and back

ohh Thanks thats appreciated :) 

although as previously mentioned im really hoping I can have REV on the road before the 1st of may so I can make it to shitefest in REV :) 

tho I am a bit worried about it, as although we are a good few months away, a lot of that time is during the winter where I wont be able to do anything on REV, leaving only a short time window in the spring/early summer I think, to get her ready etc!

so I appreciate you volunteering as a back up plan :) 

(and ideally id like to have REV on the road at least a few weeks before the 1st of May, so my first trip out in her on the road is not an 85 mile drive via the M25 and M11! although that would be very autoshite!)

indeed accommodation is another issue, I think I will probably be booking some sort of hotel/BnB or whatever its called this week! (can you tell, I have never done this sort of thing before? LOL)

I dont do camping primarily because a sleeping bag is not exactly ideal conditions for someone with a bad back! otherwise if there is something relatively soft to sleep on I have got no problem sleeping in a tent, whatever! (see the last FoD gathering where I slept in the boat! :) )  but i dont have any tenting gear or the such like!

so if someone does have a "room" in a tent or something with a soft bed/mattress/thing to sleep on they dont mind me crashing in then id appreciate that! (is your tent the one with the extra rooms? I recall there was a tent at the FoD gathering, that was sort of communal? or am I recalling incorrectly?)

 

but yeah ideally, I REALLY want to have REV on the road ready for shitefest!

Yes, my tent has master and guest bedrooms (and TBH space for about 8 other people sleeping in the rest although itll be a bit draughty...)

You could train it out to wycombe/gerrardsX and I'll pick you up. Read back and see where other people have said their staying, that way theres a lift there and back

Although I'm a newbie I'd definitely be up for coming along on one of the days (not sure what my plans are for that weekend but expect I'll be busy for part of it) in a suitable vehicle. Would also be happy to give a lift to anyone from London way who finds themselves without transport.

Having not made it to a shitefest properly since SF16 hopefully I can make it happen so that I'm able to attend! Hopefully in a boosted oil fired smol pug, but if not at least a similarly boosty oily Volvo. Hopefully the pug as I think it may* return better fuel economy, even if I wind it up a bit.

Of course, I said I'd turn up in said pug this year too and the fucker's still on stands outside my kitchen window so take that as you will.

I'll be up for going. I should be almost guaranteed get annual leave approved if I book it in the next few weeks. 

It's a 250ish miles trip to Ipswich for me so it'll be the Audi 100 if I can get it right. 250 miles in a Jimny is a recipe for a bad back. 

Also be tenting. I've quite a bit of outdoor kit that's okay for borrowing if people want, albeit no spare tent. I've only a very small 3 man which means it's cosy for 2 adults tbh.

If anyone wants to participate in the Ipswich - Felixstowe vintage vehicle run (which is on the same weekend) then registrations are now open. 

I will likely to do it; it’s a family tradition to go and now I’ve got a suitable vehicles I like to participate. 

You can get the forms on the Ipswich Transport Museum website.

That means I’m doubly keen to come along.  (Would love to chat Ro80s with you too, at the risk of sounding like a stalker.)

I'll be up for this, it's 'just up the road' for me..........i'll do the transport museum on Saturday and head back to the Rose on Sunday.

Is there going to be a definite itinerary nearer the time Trigg?

There will be mate, so far my mate who works at the museum is happy to be our personal guide and entertain us for the afternoon there and I'm thinking maybe a car related quiz in the evening and there's even been a offer from a superstar DJ to play some choons in the evening on the field. 

Sunday there's the Ipswich to Felixstowe run, I'm still not sure how to work that into the weekend so we'll chat about that nearer the time if there's interest to watch.

      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've not been before but apparently it's a bigun.
      If I go I'm happy to look out for unobtainium frogchod bits.

      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!
