Want To Join The Yorkshire / M1 South Ford Fair Convoy?

Recommended Posts

OK guys with just a month to go I thought I would plan a Yorkshire FOC convoy down to Ford Fair this year to see if anyone is interested. If anyone from Yorkshire wants to join and drive down please reply to this post with details of your car model and colour and where you will be joining from the list below. If we can get a fair few cars it should make a decent convoy on the M1. Even if you are not going to be on the FOC stand you are more than welcome to drive down with us.

Now don’t forget there are lengthy road works south of Sheffield that last for about 20 miles with average speed cameras set at 50MPH. In order for us to get on the FOC stand we need to make sure we arrive at Silverstone by no later than 7.30-8 am. My plan is to head straight down the M1 to J15A and onto the A43 to the circuit. There is a McDonalds just before the circuit which should be a good place to grab some breakfast if we have enough time.

To be sure we arrive in plenty of time I suggest we only wait for around 10 minutes at each stop, so if you want to join make sure you arrive early and park up near the car park entrance so we can see you when we arrive.

So planned meeting points so far;

Wooley Edge services southbound 5.00 to 5.10am.

Woodhall services southbound 5.40 to 5.50am

Leicester Forest East southbound 6.50 to 7am

If any other areas are arranging to meet and travel down the M1 we can always meet you somewhere and if anyone has any suggestions for additional meeting points let me know and I can add them in. I look forward to meeting you all and having a great day out.

List of folks joining so far:

Philf1 - Fiesta ST2 @ Wooley Edge - Cacelled camping at Whittlebury now
Phil 87 - Fiesta ST3 @ Wooley Edge
nath.mk7.st - Fiesta ST2 @ Woodhall

I'll be at Wooley Edge, Fiesta ST3 in Spirit Blue as you can see. That's just a 20 min drive for me, still will need to get up at stupid o'clock but will be well worth it :)

I think its necessary to have dashcam footage, or at least a passenger recording this journey!

I'll be bringing a friend so I'll make sure he records all the convoy fun :)
