Happy New Year to all.

Anyway, to cheer myself up after clicking on a survey that has the Beta as in the top ten worst cars ever, I think we need to look forward.

I seem to recall that I may have said that I would be up for organising and I see no reason to change that now...

So, Shropshire and the Marches (or just Shropshire as there is quite a lot of it) what's on offer? Well, we have nice roads, varied countryside, the Ironbridge Gorge World Heritage Site, Steam Trains, and into Wales in an hours if we want.

So, who might be up for it and when? I would need to research accommodation, but there is a new Premier Inn about 3 miles up the road from us which might be a start. I would prefer to miss whitsun and the summer school holidays, but only because we haven't booked a summer holiday yet.

I almost certainly won't have mine back on the road by then but I'd be up for joining.

I also agree that missing the school hols might be a good idea.

I would be up for a road trip...one of my new years resolutions is to use my Fiat 124 spider and the Lancia Coupe more this year.

May or June would be fine.

Unfortunately my beta is unlikely to have progressed very far (same old story I know!) and I'm not sure what will be going on this year. I'd certainly like to come but will only know nearer the time.

Hi Mark

Definitely will not have the Beta on the road by the middle of the year, but happy to come along as usual!

June is probably good for me as looks like school holidays are to be avoided.

Happy new year to all,

That's a great idea Mark, count me in, premier inn sounds good too. We have a holiday in the middle of August so that shouldn't clash.

Ignore that pole, utter nonsense! we know the truth Smiley

If anyone fancies a free Beta engine, albeit seized, no cam boxes or ancillaries. (makes it easier to move!) There is a chap in St Helens on the Stratos enthusiasts forum giving one away, I would have it myself straight away but space is so limited.

Cheers all, Tim.

I'll be there, but it would be good if you could avoid the weekend 17th/18th June, as if all goes to plan the Beta will have returned home to Northern Italy on that weekend. More to follow.....

I hope to have my Spyder back on the road within the next 3 months - so hopefully I can come along - depending on the dates.
Cheers,
Justin.

This is all most encouraging. I'll start trying to narrow dates down.

Ok folks, I have looked at the potential clashes within LMC and declared on here, so how about

20th and 21st May?
Or
24th and 25th June?
Or
15th and 16th July?

Let me know who likes what.

Cheers

All Ok with me. Though the June dates will be dependant on the Beta surviving it's 3K European road trip intact. I arrive back in Hull on 22nd!

We should be able to make it on any of these dates

Roughly what part of Shropshire might we be looking at?

We are near Newport/Shifnal, so easy for the motorways.

Driving routes can be tailored to suit and , based on previous experience, may take in a bit of sightseeing as well as driving.

My initial thoughts are a southerly route towards Ludlow and a northerly one towards/beyond Shrewsbury.
