Beachy Head Run & Meet Sunday 11/2/2018

For those in the SE if interested, there is another Beachy Head run and meet on Sunday 11th February 2018.
There will likely be 25-40 MINIs turning up.
Plenty of parked up time to meet owners, chat, discuss things MINI.

Hey peeps, this is looking really MINI2ish, fantastic, the MINI2 Crew. If everyone makes it, that will be:
Nigel (me) RF05 WRX BRG
Jonny English
Jonny's sister
Rosie55
Peppers Pray
Josh
My son (maybe) in his 1992 Cooper or his Caterham 7. He lives in Brighton so if he comes he will probably join up later during the run, probably at the Fuel Stop on the A27.

I feel rather guilty.
I live in Hartfield so to the Uckfield Maccy D is 9 miles, 15 minutes.

It is actually slightly off the Uckfield By-Pass - coming South on A22 you have to turn left at the roundabout on A26 to get to the entrance to it immediately on the left, plus the petrol station. Or coming North on A22, straight over roundabout onto A26 and same thing.

The only good thing to come out of Uckfield (it is on the river Uck) is?

I've posted in your exhaust thread. Dale will organise another Beachy Head run in the summer. Not quite so freezing, better for standing around and nagging.

Would like to come for the summer one if it's open to everyone

Was celebrating a birthday the weekend this one was on, would have been well over the limit ..

How many people turned up in total?? Did the 25 minitorque guys turn up- sounds a bit overwhelming

2002 Mini Cooper R50, purchased Nov 2016

Well done Mrs English - GREAT footage. And you captured the wonderful, open, rolling Sussex South Downs so well. Its not just about the cars!! Great scenery as well. Thanks for sharing.

Can you post it on the FB page? Think the attendees would appreciate it.

Jack - they were mostly attendees from the FB event page. Probably about 30 cars in total. Maybe only 6-8 from Minitorque.
