View Full Version : South east meet near Canterbury

6th August 2000, 17:01
Hi Guys,
I'm thinking of organising a meet in the South East near Canterbury as there never seems to be anything going on down this way. Are there many members here around this area?? Just trying to gauge reactions at the moment!! (also posted to scoobynet)

I work in Maidstone & Canterbury, I keep meaning to organise an event with Barretts of Canterbury but I am waiting for my car to be finished http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/mad.gif

Assuming I am not on call I would probably be able to come. http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/biggrin.gif

Hi Anders,

Barretts have been toying with the idea of a trackday at Lydden! Perhaps we could look into this. I'd like to gauge some reactions from other members on the BBS who live in this area to get ideas of numbers to expect and so on. Other alternatives could be the usual pub meet type gathering, or perhaps go-karting at Buckmore park or paintballing etc. any other ideas??? It may be worth organising something around the Brands Hatch Trackday to make it an action packed weekend, especially for all the scots who will be travelling down for the event! In the meantime, if enough people fancy a trackday at Lydden then it'll be worth looking into! I'm racking my brains to think of fun events to arrange. Whatever I end up arranging, I'll run it past Barretts, hopefully they can get lots of their local customers along!

When is your car ready??

My car should be ready by the end of the month http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/mad.gif

Barretts will at some point be fitting a new bumper to Richards 22b after an idiot in Faversham crashed into the back of it and gave me bad whip lash http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/mad.gif

Hi Anders (and anybody else who are probably not following this thread!!)

Just in case there is anyone interested on this board who doesn't follow scoobynet too (pun intended)the south east meet looks like it may well happen. Preliminary thoughts are to have a meet at Buckmore Park Karting track, followed by a pub/restaurant gathering. It should happen at the end of the month, I'm just waiting to get the details through in the post re pricing and available packages!!

Forgot to mention,

the venue being Buckmore park makes it much more accessible to the Essex/Surrey/London crowd as well!!

If the date suits, id like to come down from Essex... how far from the Tunnel is it?

Hi Nito.

I've got my car booked in at Barretts for its 90000 mile service on the 22nd (how much?? http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/eek.gif ) so I'll also suggest an interest in a Lydden track day. I'll be up for Karting or anything else as long as I'm not on holiday (or on the 25th as I'm hoping to get a Unichip done http://bbs.22b.com/ubb/wink.gif ).

It would be good to see an advent near this area, I live near Gillingham, so that would be great, but work in Reading so a weekend would be great for me.

Also does anyone know anything about the WR upgrade that Prodrive are doing for the P1.

I will be hopefully be getting my car serviced on Saturday 19th at barretts for its 9000 service arghhhhh.
