In response to the Northern guys getting off their collective backsides and getting organised, I guess it's time that the Cotswold boys stepped up to the mark.

Plan:

Friday 24th August

Tour of Prodrive Manufacturing Facilities @ 1630

The tour starts off in the heritage centre, where a selection of past cars such as the 911SCRS, Imprezas, BTCC Mondeo, Aston DBR9, BAR Honda F1 etc. From here you are then taken on a tour of the facilities through various workshops and machining areas. Obviously the mix of cars in will vary dependant upon the races happening at the time, but expect to see areas where road cars are stripped cut and new structure welded in, build areas, wiring areas and test / refurbishment areas. The tours are conducted by Jackie, who has a in-depth knowledge of all the work that they have carried out over the years, as well as many anecdotes regarding the teams and drivers.

Cost will be 22 per person, maximum 25 people, under 16s free, but no babies! Tea and biscuits normally laid on as well. A deposit will be required, the staff providing the tour do so in their own time, so obviously like to have groups commit properly.

Evening:

Meal TBC

Hotel TBC

Saturday 25th August

After an inevitably late breakfast, a drive through the Cotswolds. Route to be decided, but within the M5 / M4 / M40 triangle.

Lunch TBC

Evening TBC

Sunday 26th August

As is traditional, we'll play this one by ear. Lunch and a drive if people want it.

So who's in?

1) Matt (mjh93sa)
2) Will (willhollin)
3) Dave & Naomi (mega)
4) phil200tdi (Friday)
5) sheps (maybe)
6) zltm089 (maybe)
7) Sean & Ruth (seanblee)

I'm not too sure where abouts in Spain I'll be mate but thanks for your concern - I reckon I've got better odds than this meet . Thank for your concern though.
