Drive out 3.0

Postby miles thomas » Tue May 02, 2023 10:19 am

OK this year's drive will be the 3rd June ;)
Starting in mid Sussex with coffee from 10 then hopefully an interesting route across Sussex to a pub lunch just south of Midhurst. Then a shorter route in the afternoon to a Napoleonic Fort over looking Portsmouth. This is a free to enter museum just £3 to park.
You can do the whole day or met up at any of the stops along the way. We had great weather last year and I think everyone enjoyed the day, so Stephen has persuaded me to do another.
I can't guarantee the weather but getting together and driving across Sussex should be a good day.
Hope some of you can come and if you can put your name down below that will help with some final planning. :up

See you on the 3rd June :GTA

If you are having lunch with us then please book your own table for 12:45 and say you are part of the Miles Thomas booking. They can then put us together in the pub or if there are to many then we will be in the marquee.

The start point for this year's DRIVE OUT 3.O will be the Elephant cafe which is part of Trading Boundaries, details below.
Trading Boundaries
01825 790200
https://maps.app.goo.gl/CahPPbPJhUREKNNA9
I had to check with them as I remembered that sometimes they close for weddings, but we are OK.
So meet at 10:00 when they open and a quick coffee and we need to be on our way about 11:00.

The final stop of the day will be the Royal Armory museum Portsmouth,see below.
Royal Armouries: Fort Nelson
01329 233734

If you are coming along could you post on here so we have some idea of numbers. There is also the choice of just meeting up at any of the three points on the way, if you can't spend the whole day.
Hope some of you can come along, it's always nice to be out driving the cars we love.

See you on the 3rd June :wave

Hi Miles

I'd like to confirm that I can come, please, but would be leaving after The Royal Oak lunch stop - hope that would be OK?
Looking forward to seeing you again at the Elephant Cafe.

Cheers, Clive.

That's great Miles, and thank you for the reminder about the lunch booking.
I've just called the pub and they will increase the Miles Thomas booking by two to eight.
See you on the 3rd.
Cheers, Clive.

Miles,
Thoroughly enjoyed the event last year and looks like the weather will be good again.
However it is rather a long way to the start so I will join at the lunch stop and do the second part to Portsmouth.
I will book a place for lunch at the royal Oak and look forward to seeing you there.
All the best,
Ray Dawson.

I will come along and join at the lunch spot. I have just got the GTA back on the road after engine out and carb upgrade a few weeks ago so will be a good run out. I'll add in my lunch booking as well.
