UK-MKIVS

LONDON MIDNIGHT CRIUSE

23rd JULY 2005

10pm TILL LATE

Guidelines for the evening:-

1. As it will be late, no loud music (consider residential areas)
2. MK4 owners, or at least VAG owners, only - no other marques
3. Showboating will not be welcome (wheelspinning, racing about / general chav like behaviour etc) as this is a friendly cruise to see the sights at night & get some pics etc

10pm Meet at Harrods

1st Stop The London Eye (photo opportunity)

2nd Stop St Pauls if poss due to City Police (photo opportunity)

3rd Stop On London Bridge if poss due to City Police (photo opportunity)

4th Stop Food break TinselTown 24 Hour Diner (http://www.tinseltown.co.uk/)

More stops added

We will be driving through areas like Oxford Street, Park Lane etc but these will not be stops I will be giving a detailed route/map at a later stage.

As you all know it is no easy task driving through London so bearing this in mind it is almost impossible to put a time scale on it. On previous experience we could be out for 3/4 hours before we do our food stop at TinselTown.

Also it would be an advantage if you do not already own one is investing in 2 way radios. The reason is that it is a great way of keeping in touch with drivers just in case people get stuck at traffic lights etc, we can advise of our current positions. Please visit www.maplin.co.uk for cheap 2 Way Radios

This is the one I have which is a good one-

here is a slightly cheaper one-

Mapilns is probably the best place to go as they have quite a good range, but you can buy them in other places like Currys, Comet, Argos etc.

Come on then guys lets set the wheels in motion.......[;)][:D]

I'd be up for this. In fact last month I already did a midnight cruise. Well, I parked in various spots and actually walked most of it, to take photos. Was out for about five hours, stopped in Chinatown at 3am for roast duck [Y]

Here are my pics, the last one was taken from the driver seat just before driving back home.

So what are we going to call this, Gumball MkIVs? [:D]
