    Hi guy/girls. I really want to do a meet in the Plymouth/south west area. I know lots of you are in Exeter so we can meet halfway. Seen so many Clio's around here and we need to get together for a big meet very soon. The last meet was too short notice for me so I want to know your thoughts and ideas please then I will do a date for sure.

    Thinking more near the summer when its nice May/June. How about the Moors as a location. lots of car parks there, take some great pics and meet each other.

    Let me know your ideas please ie if any of you will be working etc. Sunday will be the best day for us right?

    cheers Guys :wink:

    Ssh Daniel. We can count to 12 on our hands.

    We had a meet on Dartmoor a few months back, only 4 people turned up but I think it was mainly due to it being late notice.

    Personally I was planning on having a meet in Cornwall somewhere. It'd be a nice change to see all the Somerset/Dorset lot have to drive 2 hours to a meet like we all have to. There hasn't been a meet in Cornwall in ages, which is a shame because there's plenty of nice places.

    I've just been trying to think of locations that have space for 15-20 cars together though!

    How about getting permission to park next to captain jaspers in Plymouth?

    Or go go-karting.

    Like this idea but probably hard to get.

    St. Eval is a proper kart track. 70mph twin engines. (EDIT: Gone from twins to bigger 390cc singles.)

    Raceworld Exeter looks good. (indoor track)
    St eval is highly rated (outdoor track)
    Plymouth is small. But a good laugh (indoor)


    How many people can we guarantee to a meet? I've got a contact in the council and could apply for use of the promenade (top of the hoe by smeatons tower)

    Who fancies a proper race? Price is a hell of a hike though :disappointed:

    Thunderkart Arrive & Drive (16 yrs +)
    £15 = 1st 10 minute session
    £15 = 2nd 10 minute session
    £10 = 3rd 10 minute session
    [h=2]Formula one[/h] NON-Exclusive Formula 1
    £45 per driver 15 lap race
    £50 per driver 20 lap race
    Exclusive Formula 1
    £50 per driver 15 lap race
    £55 per driver 20 lap race


    Also it'd have to be on a Saturday, since they can't operate on Sundays.

    oh right ! Well I went the other week with my brother and we had had enough by 2 races anyway. So the price isnt bad really ! App its one of the biggest tracks around and they don't half move these Karts. They also open Sundays, hence why they changed from the twin engine ones- less noise

    The track and karts are just the best in Devon and Cornwall IMO.

    Have to check on the Sunday business, since their website says they're closed :wink:

    Kartworld near Liskeard was pretty crap too - My foot was flat down on the throttle from the start line to the finish.

    i went kartworld 3 weeks ago, i thought it was really good. impossible to 'have your foot down' all the way round as it has a pretty tight mid section. i spun out twice, fastest lap for me was low 38 seconds (printouts are somewhere if anyone wants exact times).

    id be up for this meet! get enougth of us then do a GP! :smile:
