Paul, unfortunately I`ve picked up a stomach bug which has made me more familiar with the toilet than I would like so I have cancelled my room for Friday night but hoping I`ll be ok for the karting on Saturday.

 

I`ll let you know if I can`t make it on Saturday.

Sorry to hear about that Gav - but it might just make your kart a little faster?

What time are we meeting at the hotel before lunch on Saturday and is anyone else travelling up from the London area on Saturday morning?

All good questions :)

 

Sean because he needs to drop Cathy off somewhere in MK early doors.  I will need to drop Sarah off to the evening hotel before the karting but neither of those things should cause us any hassles.  There is still plenty of time to drive out and find somewhere for lunch.

 

What sort of time would you like to join us Chubbs (and anyone else)?  There's no need to travel at peak times.

 

Has anyone any suggestions for lunch?  I wondered about heading off to Tring (only because of the Jenson Button connection).  Any suggestions are welcome now or on the day :)

 

With regards to the karting - basically as long as we are all there for 16:00 and are wearing 'sensible shoes' (no flip flops!) then we'll be fine.  They supply race suites, etc. so I would suggest not wearing anything too warm as I imagine we might heat up quite quickly in race suites and crash helmets :sweat:

I can be at the hotel anytime from 10am onwards. What do you think? Let me know if that's too late.

 

Tring's a nice little place and it's got the Stuffed Animals Museum - but sadly you can't eat them. I'm sure it's got a cafe too.

As I woke up a bit early, I've had a look at possible places to go, between 11am & 3:30pm...

 

Tring - 23 miles - Small town. Stuffed Animals (The Rothschild Collection - part of Natural History Museum - includes flea circus (the fleas are dead too) - Admission free.

 

Silverstone - 20 miles - Formula Student Event (young engineers displaying their wares + a bit of electric racing, possibly) - £25

 

The Shuttleworth Collection - 23 miles -  (Historical aircraft - it's an event day, so old planes are flying all evening. I don't know if readmission is possible, but it would clash with your evening meal anyway) - £20

 

Santa Pod - 20 miles - 'Dragstalgia' (dragsters from times gone by) - £28

 

Woburn Safari Park - 8 miles - (Loads of monkeys that will scratch your car and pull your wipers off, for free) - Entry £25

 

Gaydon British Motor Museum - 50 miles (1 hr - too far?) - £14

 

Yardley Gobion - 12 miles - (It's a village - nothing here afaik. I was just attracted to the name Yardley Gobion).

 

GARDENS...

Stowe - 18 miles - (Capability Brown) £12 for just the gardens, or £18.50 to include the house.

 

Wrest Park, Silsoe, Beds - 16 miles - (also Capability Brown) £12

Well, after an excellent Full English Breakfast at the Harvester, Milton Keynes, we set off to compare exhausts by taking a 30-minute trip to Tring :)

Paul's exhaust was a clear winner. Although we both have the same model, his car has UpRev, his exhaust isn't new, so it's developed some excellent loud crackles and his gaskets are going home (though I'm not convinced they were the reason for the awesome noise he made).

Sean led the way to Tring in his cute red Abarth - a nippy little machine.

 

At Tring we spent a fun hour in the Stuffed Animals Museum. It's even better than I remember it. Then we went to a hardware shop in the town centre and bought two excellent fly swatters and a wooden spatula. What a profitable trip. We then headed back to MK for the Karting.

 

The venue is nothing short of excellent - friendly staff, clean equipment, evenly-matched karts that were quick enough for us and a good track. After qualifying we had a good, long race, deservedly won by Bikeracer (excellent tussle we had there, for 14 of the laps), with Paul in 2nd and Sprucey's lad, Kris in 3rd. I managed to get both fastest lap and slowest lap (due to spinning and needing a track marshall to get me out of the tyres). Everyone was drenched in sweat and happy at the end of it. The consensus was we'd do it again tomorrow!

 

Some pics...

It was good to see you again, Paul.

...and to meet you, Sean.

Sarah & Cathy were great company.

What a lovely soft-top you have there, Sprucey.

...and an excellent son - he's a credit to you.

Wow, Bikeracer - your supercharged black V2 Nismo is awesome! Hope you didn't get pestered by any soppy little beemers on the way home.

I had an amazing day - thank you everyone. I took a slow pootle home along the M1, thinking of all the stuffed animals we'd seen - like the ones in the pics above. Sorry I didn't get any photos of you guys.
