Hi all. Just thought of posting this as some of you do live near to me.
I organise a performance car meeting once a month near Derby. Next one is on 12th September. For details or to look at my pictures (billing pics coming in next few days) checkout Dave Wilkins Website (http://www.davewilkinsgtr.co.uk)

Hi Dave, Lolly here

Whats the meet like then?  Ive been debating with Rich over whether to come or not, Rich I think will no doubt be working late that day but if I come over it'll take me about an hour and of course I will get hopelessly lost.

Have been going to that MaccJap meet once a month but have decided that everyone is just obsessed with wreckless driving and how many people they cut up along the way to the pub.

shall i come or what eh?? :laugh:  go on twist my arm hehe

Lolly

Lolly, you are welcome to come. Pub is open 7 -11.30  so there is plenty of time. Some people turn up before 7. To see the cars that come check out my website. Not a hard journey for you I think (M6, A50 and then 2 miles from A50). Some people are starting to get a bit excited when they leave and I am trying to sort that out.

Cool:jack:
Make sure you are there early (i.e. 11.45 a.m.) as
A) there could be a lot of people turn up and not enough car parking spaces and
B) All the nosh may get eaten
I will be there early as car park attendant like at Billing:laugh:

No problem. People do seem to be coming from further away now. Food was ok (typical carvery) and pedigree was 1 a pint which was a big hit e.g. a round for me and Andy(bro) was 2!
Plenty of space for parking. Link to meeting report to follow.....

The last Derby Pub Meet of the year. Same old carvery (although turkey is on the menu now!).
The usual car park does have some vehicles and a portacabin in as there are some workmen there but the landlord says that it is ok to use it.
Next Sunday (15th) at 12.00 it is then. Could be busy so if you are eating I recommend that you go in at 12.30.

thanks, also i've been on gtr.co.uk surfing very often since about 2 year's, I was a member before until my account got messed up, i joined again under different handle and got messed up again, i know about tuning skylines and the usual, but i'm extremely interested in moving to the eu. I'm currently in the U.S. i own a 1997 gtr, i have some complications but i can work them out I suppose, i'm moving to france maybe, i dunno.

i need to modify my car though if i want to drive it in the mainland.
