Yeah around 7 - 7.30 i believe ill be getting there between that sort of time..

Just realised this is 120 miles from me, for some reason i only thought it was 70

Is anyone going along the M42, M5 or M4 that i can meet on the way..?

edit: just realised you're coming from the opposite direction

my intended route is straight down the m4, departing Reading j10 @ 6:30 with a quick roll through Chievely @ j13 around 6:50, then direct to Morrisons for 7:30. I'll be stopping there for as little time as is humanly possible before going to get sound tested, parking up then getting brekkie

Out of interest do we really need to be there that early if not going on track?

I'm not tracking (or showing) so I'm thinking more like arriving about 9.30-10am TBH. I'll leave home about 8ish I reckon and should be there to catch some of the first track sessions.

The obvious problem with people arriving all at different times is the stand is going to be a pain in the arse to organise...

It's a LOT easier if people all meet and go in at the same time... trust me i've tried to organise stands at combe many a time before...

well I think Phil only intends to drive straight through rather than actually stop, so it shouldnt add any time. If it helps I drive to Hartham Park once a fortnight or so for work and thats only another 10 mins on from Combe. That early in the day a 6:am start from j6 will have you there for 7:15, so plenty of time for the little detours in there

ah gotcha, sorry I thought you meant stop at chievely and wait for people - hence thinking we'll be there till 7am + meaning less than 30 mins to get to morrisons.

I know i've done jnc 6 to combe in 1 hr before. but that was at 110 mph average.

the junctions get silly long between 13 and 17 boring, boring drive

phil is going to call me when he's leaving Chievely so we'll either catch you there or catch you at Morrisons. GTIOC politics dictates I am NOT getting there before 7:30 even if i have to park on the hard shoulder to ensure I'm not early

For you, I shall be there early

PS Anyone who hasn't been to Combe before, the TrafPol are usually out in force when there is a RWYB type day on so do beware once you pass Newbury/Hungerford if coming down the M4
