I should be seeing Phil and Michael Ward at Brooklands this Sunday so I'll mention it Joe.


16VT and X1/9 1500

We must all do our part for the planet.
I unplugged a row of electric cars that nobody was using.

This needs sharing on the Irish FB group, maybe Brian can do that one.

Joe, we need to remember to have a conversation about getting my car out of storage again next year, so it's here to go to Italy. Even starting here, it's probably best as a two-day journey...

Certainly worth sharing Joe. In fact might even be worth asking others DFDS etc. Ive received an email to book now with 20% early discount with DFDS Newcastle to Ijmuiden sailing which we will quickly be taking.

Hi Stephen, glad you found the area I directed you to - but as I explained this is the only place you will be able to find out further details such as dates/number of permits/travel etc.

All that we know is contained in this thread and be sure you will be updated as soon as there are confirmed dates - like yourself everyone on this list is very keen to firm up their travel arrangements.

Hello everyone,
this is my first post as I have only recently got in touch with Kayjey again after more than 20 years. My Coupé is currently being redone from scratch for the next 25 years wink.
I've had her since July 8, 1994 and would like to join you on your way to Turin in 2024 depending on the date. Hopefully the date will be after mid-July as I will be working until then and I couldn't possibly join.
In the meantime stay safe all of you.

Joé

Great news of your restoration Joé, we are still waiting for the dates to be announced. This will be when the Municipality of Turin decides which weekend will be the most appropriate as they have to consider the timings of other local events.

Watch this space....

Wow! Someone who's had their coupe longer than me (24/10/95; they were released a year earlier on the continent than in the UK).

Look forward to meeting you on the trip, Joé

Staying on the Italian theme I hope we're going to get white smoke on the dates soon as some time has elapsed since the last comms about this. For those of us getting over night ferries, the early booking deals may not be around for much longer frown

Alan according an email from Dfds the early bird discount offer is valid until 29 February and as usual it's saves us 20%

Joe, That sound like a bargain if only we were 493 miles nearer to Newhaven.

When i checked ferry prices in October our ferry from Newcastle to Ijmuiden approx dates 4th - 18th June inc dinner and breakfast, 2 adults cheapest cabin £569 inc 20% early discount.

And now this evening its £750 inc 20% early discount.

And now this evening its £750 inc 20% early discount.


Absolutely disgusting prices............. I'd drive down and add that mileage on the trip.


We havent ever paid that amount even on all the trips where the dogs are with us grr Id rather drive the 900 miles in Europe... seen enough of our roads. Ive now looked at costs for all our options Newcastle, Hull, Dover, Tunnel from here and we have a clear winner with Hull-Rotterdam P&O ferries at £451.60 + £125 for fuel and a 4hr drive.
