There's always a lot of interest for pre-organised events and meets on the forum, but I don't think I've ever seen any organised A-S.net road trips (or have I just missed them...?). We have some cracking driving roads in the UK, which are always better enjoyed when driving with a group of like minded people. So, I thought I'd gauge interest in the idea of an A-S.net driving weekend. This idea was sparked after I spent a weekend in the Peak District last year and driving roads like this one...
My idea goes along the lines of:
Friday - meet up at a pre-agreed stop-over venue for an evening meal/beers/laughs and overnight stay.
Saturday - spend the morning driving a pre-determined route and visit in a local car-based attraction in the afternoon (circuit, motoring museum, factory visit etc etc). Then back to the stop-over venue for an evening meal/beers/laughs.
Sunday - head out on a different route in the morning and finish off with a cafe lunch before departing for home early afternoon.
This could be a good way of socialising with other forum members whilst enjoying driving our cars rather than just standing in a field looking at them (no offence meant). There are also enough of us located around the country to be able to set up/host some road trips at varied locations.
So, thoughts? If there's enough potential support then maybe we could organise something for late summer?
