NOT for  2016,(i have already booked my hotel)
but future years why not set off on thursday evening
Advantages as i see them,  avoiding the awful friday eve traffic leaving London, avoid the awful traffic sun aft eve leaving cornwall too and allows a rest day/return home on the Sunday for those who have overnighted afterwards in hotels.

just a thought

And lots of people can't get the time off work, so go straight to the start.

I'll be doing the Round Britain this year so hopefully Andy might have the minerals in him to make his opinion known in person instead of hiding behind a name on a forum.


I would have said hello but I could not find a Betty Swallocks on the  entry list

I hope you weren't driving then as a yellow TR7 certainly took part and completed the run

I think a certain person knows what I meant by my comment but thank you for pointing out what could have been worded more accurately in my post

mikew,

Betty having a dig at me for not doing teh RBRR in my yellow TR3a and because I do not do it I am in no position to comment.
Something I agree with wholeheartedly if you have never tried something don't knock it.
