Hi All

So BEETAMEET part one for this year will be held in Somerset. I believe another is belong discussed and arranged for later in the year which is great news!

Please keep Sunday 8th July free in your calendars and join us for a great day out driving and meeting up with fellow forum members. We are also incorporating within the drive a visit to the  'Holy grail unit' of Lancia Beta parts run by Mark Wastnidge, so any orders can be collected on route and any parts you didn't know you needed until you saw it can be bought. 

Meeting for free bacon sarnies etc between 9.00 and 10.00 for a 10.30 start time at Riverside Cottage, Bickenhall, Taunton, TA3 6TU. Sat navs will bring you straight to the door. We are just off the A358, four miles from the A303 from London and five miles from junction 25 of the M5 so we are very accessible.

Would appreciate a heads up purely for breakfast numbers. We have several Premier Inns and Travel Lodges within a few miles. Any questions please ring or text me on 07765 523 656.
Email: elmtreehomes@hotmail.co.uk. Hope to meet up with as many of you as possible. Even if your Lancia won't be on the road in time please feel free to come along anyway.

I'll be getting very drunk watching The Cure in Hyde Park on the 7th so I won't be able to make it sadly. Sounds like a great location though.

When are you travelling down and where are you staying Tim? I'm still a bit in the balance, but If I do make it perhaps we could drive down together?

Planning on wafting down on Sat the 7th, convoy sounds good to me, travel lodge/premier inn type place somewhere on the M 5? I get confused south of Chesterfield so your guess maybe better than mine!

The Lime resides close to the M 6...  Three Beta's would be good!!!

I have managed to turn Betameeta into a full on road trip this year.

I need to be in Croydon for work on Thursday 5th, so I'm driving down there in the Beta on the 4th. Working in Croydon then driving to see my Brother near Newbury on the Friday evening. Saturday drive to the campsite near Chard (see you there Tim!)


Sunday - Betameeta.


Monday, drive to Bristol where I am staying for 2 days for my Son Jack's graduation in Bath on Tuesday. Wednesday drop the Beta at Bristol Parkway to get the train into London for another work meeting. Due back at Parkway 1540hrs when I will take the scenic drive back home via Cirencester etc.

Mileage tbc....

Looking forward to our waft down the motorway, gear linkage popped apart coming home the other night, no worries as selected third on the box, that covers most bases, new Betaboyz part fitted straight away minus circlip! (impossible to get on in situ) Lets see if it holds!!!

See you soon.

Be careful in that hot tub!

Have a great day tomorrow.

Thanks to all involved today, Steve and Amanda for providing a venue and refreshments and Mark for the scenic route. Probably a bit more eventful than some people would have liked, hope everyone made it home without issue...
The delta went faultlessly all day and the fan certainly had a good work-out today! Longest journey in about 4 years and certainly the longest run i've ever had chance driving it, returning a respectable 26 mpg over todays 180 round trip.

Back in the Beta for the next one Smiley Marcus.

That looks a fantastic turnout- what a variety of cars, many new to me at least.

I am sure we will learn more about how eventful it was! It was a day to make even the moderns shudder. We had Camperjam down the road from us yesterday at Weston Park so the roads were strewn with  VW camper casualties by about teatime!

Well done all!

It looks like a great time.

Were there any HPE's ? if not I'll try to rectify that on the next outing.
Mines almost ready for a decent run now.

Thanks for sharing.

All the Best, 

Andrew.

Really sorry not to be able to be with you all... It looks like you had a great time. AND I missed the chance to have at least 4 VX Coupes in the same place at the same time... a rare event indeed. Next year...

great idea Andrew, would be nice if I could make it one day in my HPE as well and get to know everyone IRL  Smiley
(as long as it's in the south-east part of the UK for me)

It looks like a great time.

Looks like you had a good turn out. I think we would have made it but there were a few things looming over the beta 150miles in to its awakening from 26years of sleep that were a bit risky.

Well done to Amanda and Steve for organising this years weekend/ Sunday bacon rolls  Smiley, and thanks to Mark who planed the route, and also laid on refreshments at www.lanciabetaparts.co.uk  HQ.

The Sunday didn't din't go quite to plan  Roll Eyes Amanda sadly woke with a migraine, and missed the day  Sad which was a real shame considering all the hard work she had put in  Sad
Then next we had a call from Mark, who broke down a mile away cam belt had jumped  Shocked Steve went to the rescue with tools, fortunately it had only jumped two teeth, quick roadside repair and and Mark was good to go  Smiley

Here's a couple of my pics from the day, sadly as we left 1/2 the group took different routes, and missed 1/2 of the cars  Sad

Many Thanks to Amanda & Steve for organising and the fantastic food & beer! Now have significant house/garage envy!

Jacob and I had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed the run. Bella the slightly orange Beta drove straight home up North as sweet as a nut, without a re-occurrence of the binding front caliper! (A THOUSAND THANKS TO THEO FOR SAVING THE DAY!!!) 

I think bearing in mind the heat all our cars coped really well, even a slightly slipped cam belt and the odd loose gear linkage didn't leave anyone stuck, most people would bottle it and call the AA etc. Credit to all wielding their spanners Smiley   

It was a real pleasure to follow Marcus and his Mum in their integrale, as well as Theo saving my bacon I think someone else was looking after us on Sunday Smiley

Cheers all,

Looking forward to next year.

(p.s awesome pictures as ever Tony)

I have found that the more I use my Beta, the better it runs. My round trip over the last long weekend ended up at 879 miles.
