I've already suggested it in the thread

If I'm not working I'll be there, looks like it could be a good day

Also the A361 from the M1 to Banbury is a corker, I worked in Chipping Warden for a couple of years, although I did get the sack for writing off a brand new MGTF during a PDI road test, happy days :biggrin:

Rapidly approaching this one now.

I shall be staying the Sat night before the meet in a hotel near by, and hopefully finding some people for a few beers in the hotel bar. If anyone fancies a bevvie drop me a PM and I'll let you know where we are - got a couple of people staying from SurreyScoobies too I think, but I'm sure they'll be others. Could be quite a large night...

:biggrin:

Just as an aside.........

This is the "only" part (apart from the crystal headlights) that I have of my old P1 (car is still alive and kicking as far as i know)




For some reason Subaru used some dodgy printer to do the UK vin plates and all the lettering disappeared. Took 2 months to get a new one from their Homologation dept.

Just having collected it from the dealer...............July 2000

So I have to ask Don, how is the P1 compared to the bugeye version ? Does your XT even come close ? :biggrin: From what I've read this is the best road going version to buy, 22b is holy grail but not really for the street

Here's some pics of the one I saw, at the time we had nothing with a turbo in North American with the exception of a severaly detuned (and rather pointelss ) 91-93 Legacy turbo.

The P1 was a very nice car to drive, unfortunately the roads around where I live didn't agree with the ride height and the front lip spoiler :icon_frown:
On the track great.

Have never actually driven a newage impreza so unable to say.
Not strictly true, I have driven one..............group N spec:woohoo:




The XT ,as it is now, is much more of a sleeper and actually more fun as it doesn't "stand out from the crowd".:biggrin::biggrin:

The SurreyScoobies mob are congregating first at 09:30 in the Holiday Inn car park just off the Banbury turning on the M40, so that we can be positioned as one. If any of you Fozzy guys want in, that's the time & place to meet me :Banane35:

If not, hopefully I'll have the flag flying so will be fairly visible :biggrin:

A top day out !!

And a nice surprise to see Don1952 waiting for us at the Surrey meet point first thing in the morning, and to meet FForester for the first time fresh from his first mapping session :biggrin:

Three foresters there in total there - all ours :woohoo:

Will post up some photos in due course.
