    UPDATE

    The earliest you will be allowed in to the HQ is 09:15. Please do not attempt to enter before this time. As I will need to work out where we are parking and other things.

    Address of BMW is

    Summit ONE, Summit Ave, Farnborough GU14 0FB

    Thank you.

    September 2019.

    I have taken two routes as we are not in groups. It is your choice if you wish to take the same route as last year to include the Hindhead Tunnel for some fun or you can take the scenic route through more countryside. Not running groups means you can enjoy the drive more and stop if you wish to admire the area. I would expect all to arrive at Goodwood by 11.40/45 as we need to be near the cars ready to be on the grid at 12. Please follow the Track Marshals instructions at Goodwood without any questions. You will be amazed how many know more than these guys until it goes wrong.

    After the grid photos and if we are lucky to have a lap, we can then use the cafe and talk zeds...

    I have attached the two routes in .pdf and they are also on the myrouteapp website for you to download in your satnavs.

    I still have a few places left for late entrants as well as a few who have not responded.

    Any questions please drop me a PM not on the thread ok.

    Request for Paypal Payment has been sent via PM. Any issues please reply via a PM.

    The South Downs Run.


    Breakfast at BMW HQ and a look around the cars held on site. I am sure the BMW team will have a few nice ones for us to have a look at.

    Then a drive through the South Downs to Goodwood. Where we will have to pay for the parking and hopefully, get some photographs on the track. Unfortunately Goodwood is getting popular as a few clubs have seen what we have been doing. The price has gone up so I have no choice but to pass this cost on to those wishing to participate.

    I am then looking at a run in the afternoon along parts of the South Downs to the west. Which is some stunning roads.

    So the day.

    09:30 Meeting at BMW HQ Farnborough. Breakfast rolls and drinks.

    I would then suggest that we leave from 10:00 in small groups as this worked in the New Forest run earlier in the year. This then eliminates any issues of holding traffic up and also means people can drive at their own pace. we all need to be at Goodwood for 11:45 as the track will be ready for photographs from 12:00. If you turn up late you might miss the opportunity as if its possible we get to go on when the track day events are having lunch. The only issue will be if any incidents have occurred so it would be out of my hands. Hey, its a live circuit.

    13:30 - 14:00 Leave from Goodwood to do a run along the western side of the South Downs.

    I will post up the routes on here in pdf and also on my myrouteapp.com account for people to download.

    The cost has been based on 30 cars and it will be £10 per car. incase anybody wishes to check. You can message @GazHyde as he has seen the emails from Goodwood. its not a lot to get you car parked and on to the grid for a photo. We were lucky enough to get a few laps last year and I can not say, we might get lucky this year. They are parade laps so at a slower pace but great fun all the same. Any additional funds raised will be given over to the Zorg fund.
