    HEXUS.social - 13th December - Top Gear track :)

    When: 13th December 2009 @ 10am

    Where: Dunsford Park

    More Info: http://forums.hexus.net/general-disc...fool-tank.html


    We'll be setting off from an as yet un-named location in London. I presume it will be a park or area large enough to hold the ~200 cars partaking in the foolish adventure.

    Fancy dress will be optional for the spectators, I think we are dressing up though!

    So if you want a laugh, I'll probably get landed with the Elf suite! Failing that, it'll be pith helmets and safari suits.

    This is one meet I can say with a not of certainty: I will be there!!

    Funnily enough, I'll be in London that day.
    I'm going to see Soulwax and Erol Alkan on the 12th (coincidentally my 21st ) But my current plans are just to keep partying til the earliest bus home (should be a fun 10hour bus ride home) so I probably can't come.

    Right, "London Area" might be stretching is a little to be honest

    The UK launch is at..... Dunsford Park!!

    Where is that? well here is a Google Maps link:
    http://maps.google.co.uk/maps?client...77162&t=h&z=14

    Also a quote from the Adventurists about the location:
    Quote Originally Posted by The Adventurists

    3. A legendary , but anonymous, driver,nattily dressed in white, who once used to live on a rubbish tip.... (that's an fairly obtuse literary reference)
    4. A track that has tested the grit, nerve and determination of a plethora of famous faces, some of which have since had corners named after them....
    5. The waiting list to join the audience for this particular televised event is 75 years.....


    In fact, in the words of one of it's presenters, "It's one of the most famous test tracks...(pause for dramatic effect, octave drop in the voice).....in the world!"
    Exciting!!!

    A little bit more from the good chaps...

    Quote Originally Posted by The Adventurists

The actual program for the day will be sent nearer the time, but the hanger doors will open at 9am, with festivities starting at 10am, there will be a parade lap of the "Bottom Gear" test track at 1pm before we wave the stupid and the brave off to Cameroon.

    Dunsfold Park is about 1hr 15 mins South West of London, about 9 miles from Guildford, proper directions to follow nearer the time.

    So stick that petrolhead puppy into your diaries, get excited and think about which corner you want named after your team...
    Mainly a morning event, although it may take several hours to... erm... "persuade" all the ageing vehicles to actually leave the venue

    Oooh this makes it closer for me

    Plus as I doubt I will EVER get tickets for the 'undisclosed' show that is filmed there, it would be nice to see it in real life
