    Anything's posh compared with Eastwood, even Heanor or Ilkeston. Guess it's nicer in Kimberley, Watnall, etc.

    Anyway, agree with you about it happening. I remember watching the tumbleweed swirling around an empty car park in Gunthorpe a year ago, waiting for no-one to appear. If we meet, then suggest we gather around a motorway junction and somewhere perhaps near Donington racetrack which gives folks coming from the West Mids easy access via the M42 and A50; also the location is reasonably good for people coming from Inbredsville on the fens and other remote places in Lincs. Easy also for Leics, Northants, Notts, Derbys and Staffs.

    Great roads around Abbotts Bromley up to the A50 at Uttoxeter and on the other side towards Ashborne.

    We need a date now. Suggest we do it one evening soon and meet at a good pub carpark near Donington. Strike while the engine's still hot. Preferably in the next three weeks.

    So here goes. I suggest we meet at the Bulls Head, Wilson. Great country pub less than a mile from Donington racetrack. Easy to get to off the M1 J23a, A50 or M42. It's the only pub in the village. In short it is at THE HUB. Good mad roads near there too. The old A453 from J23a to Ashby was used by Senna for hairpin practice. Yeah I did just make that up but WTF it's good, believe me, I never lie.

    Who's gonna suggest the date?

    If you plan it that soon I'll probably end up turning up in my bros Clio /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif As I don't think I'll be able to get my current car sold and get a new car in a couple of weeks.

    I was going to suggest the services near "Nottingham East Midlands Airport" but the Bulls Head looks good to me.

    I thought there was a date in this thread somewhere but I don't seem to be able to see it. Was I imagining it or am I being dumb?

    As were talking midlands... Just a shout out to the Black S3 owner who was coming off the M69 along side me on Friday night bout 6:30... Not only was it great to actually see another S3 but we gave each other a mutual thumbs up of respect and acknowledgement.

    Made my night!

    Oh, and I'll be at the meet if people are serious enough about it...
