I'm good for this, and knowing what I know about the intended route and about how London traffic is, i'd suggest we try and start at 10am (providing we can get all people to the start point by that time)
:cool1: Fine with me. If anyone can't reach it by 09:45, they need to set their alarm earlier... :p
As with the SE Cotswold Run, info will be sent in due course by PM.

This really is the last chance saloon for anyone with a pre March 2001 car so get your name down!

Current list.

Do we get the chance to cross something like vauxhall or preferably lambeth bridge for a pic of some 1990s jap cars with the H.O.P in the background ? Last chance we'll have to do it :)

Have you forgotten about our exchange of PMs a few weeks ago? :)
Unfortunately there is a snag with stopping for pics on either bridge.
They are both Red Routes. Also Lambeth has a 24/7 365 day Bus Lane.
With TfL having so many cameras we're guaranteed to all get PCNs.
:sad:

I know of only one place where any pic with the HoP in it would be possible.
Even then it's highly unlikely it would accommodate more than 4 cars.

I have not, but (if we go near lambeth bridge), there's a roundabout at either end. I was hoping/wondering if we got any passengers we could drop one on the bridge and come round for a couple of passes and some ninja shots.

Alternatively I could enlist a photographer and go out late one night.

I'll take the last slot to guarantee the run 😎 I won't fold in the weather this time as I can't see us standing around for hours getting wet

Barrow Wake wasn't that bad: just rather windy and cold.

Ah, hadn't thought of that. zoh_Xavier and B22_JLD may be +1. I had Lambeth in mind all along.

There's an increasing possibility I can't get to this (in my mr2). Overrunning engineering works I think they call it.
I might come and passenger ride it though, we'll see.

Thanks Andy, I saw that too. Brexit is on hold atm - https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/47664452

Whatever, it's make your mind up time for next Sunday 31st folks.
I now need people to confirm by midday on Friday please that they will definitely be attending.
There needs to be enough support to make it worth fighting my way across London to the start.
