Event: Sun Sep 03, 2017 8:00 am
Reply with quote

Anyone up for a cheeky convoy on way to Castle Hedingham ??
As it's my part of town , thought I would put it out there .
(I drive this route regularly as my mum lives in Rayne)

Think it's a 10am open. So maybe a 9am meet ?

These are my way points:-

M11 / A414 roundabout (convenient if youre getting off Jct 27 M25)
McDonalds car park. London Rd, Hastingwood, Harlow, CM17 9LH

Smith's restaurant
Fyfield Rd, Chipping Ongar, Ongar, CM5 0AL

Black Bull pub
Dunmow Rd, Fyfield, Ongar, CM5 0NN

Axe & Compasses
Dunmow Rd, Aythorpe Roding, Dunmow, CM6 1PP

47 The Street restaurant
Rayne, Braintree, CM77 6RU

(possibly another back route here depending on timing)

Hedingham Castle
Bayley St, Castle Hedingham, Halstead, CO9 3DJ

See you at McDonalds, just off J7 of the M11.

I'll aim to be there for 08.45 Thumb

Excellent. I put all that into TomTom, 37 miles . Little less than an hour.
No cameras, mostly 60mph .

If you can fit it in, Dunmow to Bardfield, Finchingfield via B1057 and B1053 via Whethersfield, Sible Hedingham to Castle Hedingham is a cracking route. Just watch for the Bikers early Sunday Morning... Thumb
Bosworths on the Green in Finchingfield for Breakfast....

Have missed out on tickets now or would have joined in. Confused

Is it anything like Goodwood or Silverstone where the police are wise and are out catching enthusiasts?

On the day there's usually camera vans in the village surrounding the castle. It's a 20 mph limit so it's easy pickings for them.

Top tip, Terry. Worth knowing! I plan to cruise over, mitigate any risk and hopefully keep the car less smothered in bugs.


Off topic - Do you guys go over your cars with quick detailer once you park up, or is that a VW thing?

The cars on display in the show areas will no doubt have a spruce up, but the rest of us parked up, a very short walk away, will be spread out in a very large parking area. During my previous three visits I have yet to see anyone buffing up their car in the general 911 parking areas. (Unless for the removal of harmful bird/insect splat and windscreen clean)

Not just a VW thing, when forming part of static displays at Crystal Palace in the past I would give a quick squirt and wipe, Windsor meets too (Whatever happened to them?)

Given that at the last couple of CatC events I've been parked in the same field as GT3 4.0's, 997 Sports Classics and brand new 991 Turbos I'm taking the view that very few people will be giving my car a second glance.

i.e I'll park it up and walk away. Grin

Laughing thanks, Gents.

I know my car will be very low on the pecking order, I actually think that is why it needs to stand out on it's own merits.

Never used QD though, surely taking a cloth (albeit Microfibre) to the now dirty paintwork goes against the two bucket technique ethos? haha

I remember a mate going through 'Show n shine' at ED38 in his mk2 G60 with raw sausages and empty beer bottles in the boot. We'd actually slept in it. He still got silver in the non modded category.

I need to do a drive by in Rayne to pick my stepfather and 2 of my kids up.
They will be waiting on the kerb by "47 the street", so won't hold us up more than a minute .

We then either head straight for gosfield / hedingham by most direct route , or hang a left and head north east cross country towards finchingfield
