Right here we go drag racing again :smokin: .

How about a meet on the 14th October at Santa Pod for what I think is one of the last Run What Ya Brungs of the year. I have been asked by Simon/Alexis of JapUK Meets to make this an invitation for all off us here to join them in the fun. I know we can't be sure of the weather but hey, could be sunny and the Pod is a nice run/meet for North/South Skyline owners which can only be a good thing :D .

Will revive this thread nearer the time but just thought it may be a worthwhile addition to our diaries.

See Ya.

Curtains

I have no idea what you mean Velvet I hope...

I just hope T6KYO can go on green this time and not sit there smiling on a green flash? I don't think my clutch can take much more.:D

running down the 1340 (1/4 mile)

Sounds good to me. All this driving round bends
gets a bit involved. But the weather, well, last time I went there was in 1989 and I swore I would never return. Nothing like U turning ! Anyway, maybe the facilities have improved. There is nothing like a 'pod-burger' to make you go faster ! Glen, get your Showaddy-whatever 8-tracks out, they might play them on the tannoy

Ok Ok

Tim. Yes the POD is the PERFECT race track for me. No corners :D .
As for tunes to play while dragging. TRex with 'Get it on Bang the gong Get it on'. Top sounds.

Henry. Are you going to bring the RARE 5 cylinder GTR :D .

Warren. Why have you taken your Avatar off. I enjoyed looking at the 'High Roof' cossie.

And no I won't be doing any demonstration 'black smoke' fly pasts, before anyone says anything.

Glen.

Next Weekend

Dear All

Are we going or are we going. Just a reminder for next Sunday 14th October that Santa Pod is holding a run what ya brung. I am leaving from essex with a few guys from the JapUK Meets site and am planning to try the M11/A14 route. Not confirmed so may end up on the busy South Mimms and Toddington route. Anyone else fanciening(can't spell that one) it just post up. By the way this is an open invitation to ALL by the way. North, South, East or West. Let's try to make it a big cruise and meet. Like Daz said not too many of these left and the weather COULD be OK. I personally aren't going to run my car but I believe as Guy said the costs are £15 if you want to.

See Ya.

Oct 14th

Hi Glen
I'm still up for it. Got permission from 'her indoors' so all I need to worry about now is the weather. Not having been to the Pod since 1989, the route we always used to follow was straight up the M1 and off at J14. I am planning to pick up a friend of mine from Farnborough area on the way so we will probably go up the M3/M25/M1

Meet

Tim.

Well probably popular opinion is that we all go in a group so us Essex Boys will no doubt be meeting you guys at Toddington.

Glen,

I may meet you at Scratchwood. What time are you planning on meeting, there is also a Scooby meet I would like to go to on the same day.

Thanks for the compliments on the site, I try my best. Weather has been real crap recently, so there hasn't been much opportunity for new photographs unfortnately.
