    What route will you be taking jimojameso? I'm assuming clockwise avoiding the Dartford crossing?

    I'll be travelling up from the SE area also, but will be aiming to be at the event pretty early to avoid the traffic and buy a ticket on the gate, but will be heading through Dartford.

    I went up last year on the morning of the show, got there for around 9ish.

    If I go this year I'll aim to do the same I'd imagine

    Kwistof yes i will be going anti clockwise. What time you reckon we should all leave to head up there? Maybe could all meet at Cobham services? Just need to set a time really.

    Yeah I don't mind travelling west bound on the M25.

    I live close to the start of the M20 near the channel tunnel (very SE Kent), so my normal route would be to go through the Dartford crossing/tunnel but I'll be up for meeting at Cobham services to drive and arrive in a convoy. I suppose at least I get to save the toll charge money! Lol

    I'll have a look into times to leave tomorrow- just out and on the mobile at the moment.

    What I was discussing earlier in the thread would have all been for the Sunday tbh.

    Meet at Cobham services - then hit the M25 and M1.

    If your travelling from Chelmsford then the convoy could roll through a services on the M1 and you could join from there?

    I think it will be a bit to late in the morning to get through central London at that time at a decent pace.

    M25 and M1 are both long ass PITA roads! lol

    Makes it a lot more fun when you're in convoy though

    How about travelling on the A3 and join at Cobham services on the M25?

    I'll sort out aprox meeting times shortly and see how much interest there is.

    A3 is after Cobham services, services is between 9-10. From Bournemouth your better coming up the m3 and joining somewhere on the m1, more likely toddington services.

    When I said about being the long way, your better going across the bridge and going anti clockwise to the m1, rather than clockwise. M1 is j21

    Oh yeah totally agree.....Dartford crossing is the usual route I go but don't mind going the long way round to meet up with others. Plus I save £2! lol

    So for the Sunday..... I was thinking of an 8am departure from Cobham services on the M25 (KT11 3JS)

    Cobham Services M25 | Information and Facilities | Motorway Services

    Then travel clockwise from here to join the M1 and possibly (depending on interest) pick some others from Toddington services (LU5 6HR) on the M1 for around 9am

    Toddington Services M1 | Information and Facilities | Motorway Services

    Then get to the event and get parked around the ASN stand (NN3 9DA) for around 9:30am

    Audis in the Park - Home

    How does that sound for people?

    I'll be leaving at 6:30 if that makes you feel any better? lol

    Not 100% sure on Cobham services- I haven't even stopped there personally as it's quiet new and also looks HUGE. Just make sure your on the side to exit going clockwise round the M25 mate.

    You can get to it from both sides of the motorway. Anyone with a 1.8T should be attracted to it as it has a shell garage, and I know mine is very fond of them...

    UK Shell V Power nitro+ has a 99 octane rating

    You may find some of the smaller Shell stations only have the odd pump with 99 octane V power available, but I'd be surprised if they don't even stock it....

    You up for meeting at Cobham services then Reesy? Need to have the fastest 5 door 8L on ASN on the stand

    You can get to Cobham services from both directions, anti clockwise leaves the m25 and goes under the motorway to the services

    There is also no difference between the old v power and the new nitro, it's just cleaner and rebranded, octane rating is the same(still 99).I emailed shell and have that on good authority :thumb:

    Good day Todd,

    Thank you for your email.

    The octane formulation for the new Shell V-Power Nitro+ is at 99.

    You can find more information on the new Shell V-Power Nitro+ at
    www.shell.co.uk/vpower

    If you have any other queries, please do not hesitate to email us
    back.

    Yours sincerely,

    I don't mind taking up this position.

    I'll create a list of who's meeting where when I'm on the PC in the next couple of days and drop you all a PM with my mobile number. In case people are late or manage to get lost! Lol
