2019 Cotswold Pre Show National Run - 3rd March

Post by MR2Jay » 23/08/18 7:40

Good morning,

Following the success of the previous Cotswold Run, I beleive it's high time we tried it again :th: This run out proved to be a great way to blow out the cobwebs and give the cars a chance to stretch their legs before the show season and was a roaring success.

Pics from the 2015 run can be found here (Thanks Tony :th:)

https://www.mr2oc.co.uk/forums/80/162837.html

I know it's early days but the logitsics of organising a run from all 4 corners of the country are not an easy feat. So for now, I have set the date at the first Sunday in March so it can be pencilled into people's calendars.

So, what do we need from you? Firstly, I need people to head up each region I have listed below. If anyone feels that an area can be split, then please pipe up and we'll adjust the lists to suit. Bear in mind that more regions require more leaders to guide people towards the final meeting point.

1. Nills Hollman (MR2 Drivers Club)
2. Jake Roberts (MR2 Drivers Club)
3.

South East - Group Leader - Tonylefrog

1. B22_JLD
2. Adam Innes (MR2 Drivers Club)
3. shinny
4. angpozzuto
5. zoh_Xavier
6. ayresyboy
7. pbmr2

East Midlands - Group Leader - MR2Jay

1. Cori.Louise
2. Mark Kenworthy (MR2 Drivers Club)
3. Chris Wood (MR2 Drivers Club)
4. Darren Letts (MR2 Drivers Club)
5. Fiona Letts (MR2 Drivers Club)
6. Stuart Crann (MR2 Drivers Club)
7. Cayde-6

I haven't included Scotland in this as yet however if people feel that they could get down for the run then I'll happily add this region to the list :th:

The next thing I need people to do is spread the word. We need to get wind of this to any corner where running MR2's could be hiding. That's other clubs (ROC, MR2Drivers Club, IMOC etc...), Facebook, Twitter....Wherever......If people hear, I don't care where it is advertised. As long as people can be linked to this post to bring people along, that's what we want :th:

Once we have started to populate this and have leaders in place, they can create individual pages for the region they are running to discuss details :th:

So, here we go, let's get this going :yh:

**edit - we are getting a lot of traffic through from other avenues which is amazing - If you would like to be part of this event, please either sign up to the Owners Club (Free membership is fine to sign up to this event, you don't need to pay the full membership costs but I would encourage it to help keep us running and supporting club stands such as JAE) or let someone know through Facebook etc. If we have any contacts from other clubs here willing to spread the word around the other forums and avenues, please let me know so we can help encourage people to join us and let us know who would like to attend**

I'll pop you down Pete - I've pencilled in the first Sunday in March at the moment. Gives plenty of notice and is before the first shows kick off :th:

I think I'm going to give this one a miss as my car has a tantrum everytime I try to make this event. 2016 my big end bearings started knocking the day before and 2017 this happened
I think I can take the hint

Third time lucky. You know you want to be there. ;)

Jay, are you thinking of having the same format as previous ones?
Each area making their own arrangemnts to get to the meet point (Barrow Wake again?) by a certain time.

Put me down for the South East please.
I'm happy to do the route plan for that group.
If you're not living life on the edge, you're taking up too much room!

Seriously though, make your mind up closer to the time :th:

I think that format worked really well, we didn't end up with a massive convoy through the day but all got to meet at the end for some pretty epic pictures :th:

Thanks for stepping forward Tony, updated the list to suit :th:

Quick update, just waiting on names/areas but we have had an amazing response from the MR2 Driver's Club - 13 names so far putting themselves forward.

Get signed up guys, this is looking like it is going to be a BIG event :th:

Thanks Mate :th:

What region would you be coming from so I can update the list? I know you are coming from Herefordshire but not sure which corner that would class as :blush:

TBH, not sure myself!

I am only about 45 mins due west from Barrow Wake so it depends if anyone would be going by nearby I could latch onto?

Hmmm, you're kinda between the Wales, South West and West Mids Guys......

West Mids are a spirited bunch, Wales is a bit of an unknown as it's been quiet for a while but we have an old school member looking to return and light a fire under the region and South Westers are a little more relaxed.

I'll leave it up to you :laughing
