    Hi Alan,

    Do any of the weekend events except Silverstone have a camping element?

    I'm hoping to make an event from each of our regions to celebrate the anniversary year.

    Cheers,
    Tom

    There is camping on site at the Motorsport at the Palace weekend only.
    http://www.motorsportatthepalace.co..../accommodation

    There is no camping available at Eastbourne so we stay in a Travelodge/Premier Inn for the Mag Motors

    There is no camping available at Chatham either although we have only done single days in previous years so not up to speed on accommodation in this area.

    Hi Alan,

    Is there a confirmed date for the Kent run in October?

    Thanks, Alex.

    Hi Alex,
    October Kent run probably not going to happen now due to other unforeseen commitments. However, there is an MR2 run from Epsom (M25/J8) to Eastbourne taking place on Sunday 6th September if you're interested?

    Thanks Alan,
    Sounds good, but will probably take the Mk2 on that one.
    I don't suppose you know what time it starts? I can't find any more info on it other than location and date.

    That's a good question Alex,
    I'm pretty sure the meet starts at 8.00am for tea/coffee and doughnuts then leaving the HQ building approx. 9.00am.
    I will start a separate post for this to see if anyone else is coming from the club and will confirm details of time and place.

    I spoke to some other MR2 guys at the weekend and they seem to think the Kent run is still on. I am not involved in organising this run so perhaps we'll find out more as time goes by. If I hear anything I will put another post on this site.
