If anyone using the M1 give yourselves a bit extra time!

BTW biking over Kirkstone Pass in the Lakes yesterday and passed a blue Z3... ???? YAH, chap looked like he was enjoying himself in near perfect weather......anyone here??

You may well be better coming through Castle Donington, however by 1200+ the bikes should all be in

I've been up and down the M1 quite a few times recently with no problems, although the 50 limit makes it a bit boring it does wonders for the mpg!

Eddie, it might be worth coming off at j28 and taking the a38 to derby then picking up the A50 for the airport, then take the turn off for Donington. Keeps you off the M1 and there will be restrictions on the A453 due to the bike racing. :)

Cheers
Dave

Pete and Dave, what a brilliant afternoon! Couldn't have asked for better weather. What your doing there is a credit to you and I hope what bit of money you made from the Zed meet can go towards whatever project your working on at the minute. :cheers

What a fantastic afternoon - thanks again Pete and the Crew at the Aeropark. Great company, sunshine, good burgers, superb aircraft and knowledge from the crew.
Oh, and a a pretty tidy line up of Zeds ! (I think Lesley preferred it to the 'retail therapy' that would have happened had we not gone - need to find somewhere for next week now :wink: )
:D Mark & Lesley

Looks an excellent turn out and a great time appears to have been had. So disappointed I already had made plans for the day near Buxton. mind you if the date had not been changed it wouldn't have been such glorious weather! Glad it turned out so well for everyone.
