Run2 Europe2019......Aug26th to Sept1st


Recommended Posts

Anyone fancy a trip around Europe?

 

 

This event is every bit like the Gumball3000 apart from the Hyper Cars, 7 star hotels, Mega Budget, The Hoff....I think you get the idea!

It is a Grand Tour around Europe at your own pace (this is not a race), there will be prizes but these are earned by various (hopefully) fun challenges, and as said before we don't have a massive budget (for those old enough remember Blankety Blank Book and pen).

 

At the moment I am laying down a route but could do with an idea on numbers for hotel rooms etc...I am looking at an entrance fee of *£40 per team and your hotels will be around £70 to £110 per night per team (team is driver and co driver/passenger).

 

*Entrance fee is for challenges and prizes/trophy

 

If you think you could be up for a little drive (approx. 2000miles) please show your interest below

 

 

Cheers

 

Dave

Depending on the final route, Rachel and I would really like to join at least for some days. Since we're from Germany we would come across when you're already in Europe.

 

 

The dates are set but the route is usually secretive. We dont get to know where we're going until the evening before. I would think however that Dave will arrange something with you to let you know where we are bound.

 

Early days yet though.

Thanks for the hint :thumbsup: I wasn't aware that the route is secret, but a nice idea anyway.

 

 

It'll be hard to meet when you're in Europe on secret roads :D ;)

Where there is a will there is a way, as they say!

 

Once the trip has been finalised, keep an eye on your PM's. Someone will let you know where we are planning on going and on what days.

 

I cant remember the exact dates from last year, but in essence we travel on the day before (25/08/19) to arrive in Europe for Day 1 start. Longy has already stated that the first day will be long, but as yet I dont know if that aiming for East, South or Western Europe for the shorter days.

 

Do you have WhatsApp? we have a group that you can be added to where things are discussed. PM me your mobile if you're interested.

 

We an also discuss this at Silverstone, when you're over here. It would be great for you to come along.

Hi. I’m a little late to this event as it’s been quite a difficult start to the year but now things are a little more settled is it possible to join you guys and girls?

Currently waiting on holiday approval from work but it’s 99% a given. Myself and my baby girl “Mo”and my girlfriend (Jayne) would really enjoy a few days away.

Obviously this would be a first Run2 for us both so will be needing a massive amount of advice to avoid any disasters

Either PM me or post hints and tips on here if we can join the party. Cheers Mick.

Great stuff. Looks like I might be busy loosing the sub woofer for a spare wheel if that’s advisable?

I carry a space saver just in case. Not ideal, but better than a can of glue! The Bose fits inside the space saver.

 

However, fitting the damaged road wheel into the boot might be more on an issue...!

In fact, you needn't worry because you can borrow my space saver (if I don't need it!)

Can you get a spare wheel through that letter box opening to your new boot mate?! ;)

Jealousy is such an ugly emotion isn't it? :blush:

To be fair Paul, the rear seats in the GTR are, well, lacking legroom if I'm honest. But it does have a decent boot.

Love the new Gtr blobbish. I expect to be left for dust somewhere in Europe.

So basically....

 

<Ferry>

 

Anticipation. Breakfast.

 

Days and days of driving awesome roads, amazing scenery, fun evenings, great company. Using your car for what it was designed and built for.

 

<Ferry>

 

Sadness because it's nearly over.

 

A sense of achievement and memories that last forever :)
