I believe it’s all double yellow near the entrance into the road near the roundabout so we could meet up on the west bound side on the yellow lines. You’ll never see a warden! I guess 9.15 and then head to Fort Fun

Thanks, that works for me.

Looking at google maps, the Sovereign Centre Parking Lot with a post code of BN23 6HZ would get the satnav somewhere close.

Peter and Richie,

I think I understand, we'll just aim for the Sovereign Centre and hopefully see one/both of you!! ( have at least one of your mobile numbers). The post code you referred to sends me to the housing area behind the main road. Did you mean there?. It can't be that hard, can it?- it's only a bl***y car show!!

See you on Sunday- enjoy Brooklands!

If it helps I think you can see the fort from the Sovereign Centre, so it's close.

I see they want vehicle owners to dress in the era of their car. I'm alright my dress sense hasn't moved on since 2000.

I don't think mine has since 1995 either John.

Chris, When I looked at google maps the post code put me on the main drag opposite those houses.

My mobile, holding down the shift key, is )&&&)&^*)^*

I have had another look on Google Earth and there appear to be three sections of the westbound carriageway of Prince William Parade where the double yellow lines have been removed. Is that where you were suggesting Richie?

Also the Sovereign Centre car park is chargeable with a token purchased from reception (£2) to exit. Best all round if we avoid since at 9:00 am. all the 'weasels' will be there with their mummies and daddies for their swimming lessons!!


As for 'period costume', it looks as if it will be bright and cold tomorrow so I'll be in thermals under my Armani suit! See you in the morning.

I think I will have to give this one a miss after all.

I feel knackered after a freezing cold day at Brooklands then in heavy traffic coming home and the thought of a couple of hours bank holiday traffic each way with another cold day in between is losing its appeal.

Hopefully I will see you at the next Departure Lounge "Italian Day" on Saturday 1st June.

Enjoy yourselves tomorrow and thermal underwear on!!

I was going to park on the Westbound carriageway maybe 100foot or so away from the roundabout on the yellow lines

Hope you are feeling better Pete! It was a good event at Eastbourne and weather was dry which was a bonus smile

Thanks Ashley, lots better, even mown the grass this afternoon and found out how my coupe front bumper got scraped yesterday.

A LHD 1963 Lancia Flaminia AFW xxxA carved me up by forcing its way into my lane going into the Brooklands Gate. I was stopped and didn't feel a thing nor notice the damage until today
James found the number from videos and photos posted on line.

Glad it was a good day for you all today, sorry to have had to miss it.

You wouldn't have expected that sort of driving at such an event but maybe it reflects the attitude of some who feel they are a class ahead so to speak. Hope it’s a quick fix and good to hear you are feeling better.

Shocking news Pete, hope the damage is minimal.

Thanks John.
The damage doesn't look too bad but there is a crease in the side of the bumper about a foot above the ground from the wheel arch forward about 10 inches long, plus paint flaked off.

Sorry to hear that Pete - bloody lancia drivers. Nothing worse than flaminia on your front end. That's why I try and keep my fulvia away from any flaminia.

I'm glad to say that it's almost ready Pete and very much on the last lap now. It's been almost 3 years of blood, sweat and tears (inc. 2 trips to A&E) getting the damn thing sorted. Just got to sort out where a million chrome bits go and get the windows back in. It's running more a bit rough, but not surprising given it's gone nowhere for so long. Never again that's for sure. I'll try and bring it along to one of the Alton meets once it's back on the road.
