More details about the day:

It's booked for 10 a.m. on Friday 16th March 2012 at:

Peter Baldwin
Wilshers Garages
Automobile Engineers
Cambridge Road,
Wimpole
Royston
Cambridgeshire SG8 5QE
01223 207217

Map link

It's near Cambridge - about 1hr 45m drive from Norwich - about an hour from Barton Mills. So shall we suggest meet at Barton Mills by 8.45am? I think Bluffin said he would be there about 1.00pm, if anyone else needs early (like Mark) or late then let us know so we can get a running order sorted out. At present we have got 7 cars, one power run. As it's 400 + VAT (480) that's about 70 each car (excluding Keith's MPI which would be about 30, so 65 if 7 cars go).

1. Keith (mpi power run)
2. Caroline
3. Mark
4. Ian N
5. Bluffin
6. Kev (Bishop IRL)
7. Johnnie
8. John Burton
9. joshlee

Payment on day, card or cash.

Facilities. They should have tea/coffee. There is apparantly a cafe down the road, or no doubt we can find a chip shop. Best take your own pop. They are just a garage, they don't have much in the way of facilities.

Jeff from Mini Mag is hoping to get down - but may not be able to it as its his birthday, so he said send in some pics and text if not.

Hope that's all the details needed, let us know if not! I spoke to someone else at the garage on Fri as Peter B was away. Mark will call him this week to confirm it all.

Caroline & Mark

All sounds good. Just a reminder for people to check condition of hoses / clips . Fluid levels and replace any ignition parts as required. I'm guessing that if new needles etc are supplied are extra cost?

Certainly is joshlee, I'll add you to the list.

So, is everyone (apart from Bluffin who's arriving at about 1pm) planning to meet at Barton Mills at 8:45am?

As I'm just doing the power run thing, I'll probably come along at lunchtime as well. So it will be 7 people meeting at BM and Bluffin and I coming along at 1pm.

Hi Keith

Me and Mark will be at Barton Mills. If anyone needs to get in contact with us you can call me (07990575277), although I'll obviously be driving myself and I don't have handsfree in the mini - even if I did on the stereo the seat belt is not adjustable so I would never be able to reach it to press the answer button!

I think that's all spaces filled - could probably fit one more in at a push but there's only so many he can fit into a day and one more maybe one too many, I don't know.

Not sure how good my Mini is going to be, just been out in it for the first time in over a month and it's running very warm still, I'll check the oil and water levels when it's cooled down but I think they're ok. Will have to see.

Firstly the bad news. My car is very broken. She won't be able to make it (even with the best will in the world), her radius arm is completely snapped and now we have problems with hydrolastic suspension.

I'll still come along, but mini-less.

Also John (Burt), you are already on the list. So I dare say we could fit another couple in still.

Very sad girl Sad

We have heard that other people who have said that they will be coming may not now be able to do so - so please can everyone URGENTLY post to confirm whether they are coming or not???

WE HAVE HAD TO CANCELLED FRIDAY. We understand that at least another 2 cars for the full works won't make it, leaving only Mark, Ian (?) and John and it's not worth it/too expensive for 3 cars plus the 2 MPI tests when he can do 7 or 8 cars. Peter Baldwin has plenty of other work that he can do on Friday so we will re-arrrange it for another time. We suggest that all who want to come pay a deposit in advance. Mark will post further details later.

Sorry guys, there was not enough of us to make it viable. It would have cost about 100 plus as there were only 3/4 tune ups and 2 power runs. Peter said he could postpone it until after Easter with no charge.

I'm really disappointed too, but with only half the number needed I thought that it was the best thing to do. Those that were already interested will get first refusal on a new date, and the other cars that were not ready will hopefully be.

How about if I try to re-fix it for a Friday in April? Would the tune ups be ok paying a 50 deposit so that we don't have the problem again?
