People from last year will know the drill- I'm planning same locations and times- spread the word!. PICS OF LAST YEAR BELOW!

Third year for this convoy- wow times goes fast! Again I am organising an MG Rover convoy to Pride of Longbridge on SATURDAY 13TH APRIL 2013.

Arrangements same as last year but here are the details to recap;

We are going to be meeting in the carpark at M25 Clacket Lane services CLOCKWISE about 7am [arrive 6:45] and M40 Beaconsfield services NORTHBOUND about 8am [arrive 7:45].

Anyone with a MG or Rover is welcome to come along. Don't worry if you have slow car, all will be legal 70mph motoring.

Drop your name below and spread the word. Would be great to see 40 MGRs going up the motorway together. :D

There are 2 meeting points for people from the North and South. People from South can meet at M25 services and people from the North area can meet on the M40. People from the South then hook up at the M40 with the other people.

Saturday 13th April.

7am M25- Clacket Lane services - clockwise TN16 2ER

8am M40 Beaconsfield services- northbound. HP9 2SE


Any car with any rleation to Longbridge is allowed, old, young, modded, factory. :)

Well last year we rarely exceeded 65-70mph so a nice calm run, no heavy feet so it just depends on what engine you have. lol

Under 1 month to go people. Dust your cars off from out of the garage and get them ready for PoL!

Anyone else want to come along on this convoy?

just took the maestro for a run.. the battery is not holding a charge properly, so it is running like a pig popping and misfiring all over the place, mems is a mother hen when the power is low, so new battery tomorrow.. and the moral is keep your battery charged to save its life and your money.. regards ricky
