Cannonball rally run - summer 2019
#1
NRight boys! We have a date for this cannonball run or rally, whatever you wanna call it. Thinking of doing the UK to Benidorm or something like that - to be discussed once we have numbers. We'd love to do it as a type of top gear challenge type of thing. Two or three per vehicle. By a car for as little money as possible, do the cannonball run and flog back on in Blighty if it survives. I really fancy a black cab, others could do a Hearse or ice cream van. The quirkier the better IMHO. Anyways that's the general plan, And it gives us plenty of time to buy, plan and orginise We have a definite rough date and plan. We need definite numbers. Please - no maybes. As this will take some planning.
So names please who are definitely in. This will be mega boys. You don't wanna miss this one.

So we've moved on a year then? Why the new thread? You're all over the place - this is no way for an Engineer to behave. 

You know I'm in so just put my name on the list  Laugh

If we're under the new banner of Cannonball Run, do we have to 'tasche up? I'd pay good money to see Kev and Lefty with lip carpets  Laugh

Buying from a source is better than the block Kev.

Especially with half a million on the clock...

#9
Whatever we do is a risk at that price. Part of the fun TBH. Just having a mooch at the moment.

That's four confirmed, with Doc in support - so It's two potential teams so far. Could do it as four depending on what vehicle we buy. Anymore for anymore!

Have a look chaps. It's all at different parts of the year. Obviously we're going in 2019. Gives us an idea though.

Just a thought....

The UK will be out of the EU by the time this is due to start.

For you young pups.... back in the day...

International driving licence, Green Card insurance, all vehicle documents and I think translated.

For each person, medical insurance, passport and probably visas?

Then we may have Customs limits imposed....!

My regular jaunts to Europe back in the day entailed carrying a case full of documents.

I don't think we'll return to that level of bureaucracy, well, we might but it'll be digital so less paper to carry Wink

You've forgotten that the French are a bunch of bureaucratic arses... even that word is French!

They will want to punish us for years to come, pity they have such short memories....twice we've bailed them out of the shit with the Germans...think they'll not be a third time Big Grin

#19
We'll probably just roll over and take it up the shitter - as usual!
