So due Beachy Head road closure for refurbishment i have had to modify the route slightly.
We will still be meeting & setting off at the A21 Diner. the route is all country lanes & heads east to the coast of Dungeness. For those of you that don't know, Dungeness is formed largely of a shingle beach in the form of a cuspate foreland. It has good scenery points of the power station & lighthouses!

The route down there takes us on the A259 which consists of a switchback corner has been rated well by some best driving road sites.
The 2 stops, one of which is in Battle with a public car park round the back of the high street & the other is a car park in Rye. I will also pull into a layby on A259 if the convoy looks to be splitting up.

NEW ROUTE LAYOUT DUE TO CLOSED BEACHY HEAD RD

East Sussex MINI Meet & Run (Beachy Head & Coastal Route) 09/10/16

I'll put it in the diary. Be a shame to see chrome and wheelgap be flavour of the day again!

PS... Great work Dale

I'm up for this. Is there much hooning or is it a leisurely affair?
Bit of both really, if you want a hoon there will be oppertunity but if you'd rather not blast you won't get left behind

due to lack of funds (being 21 y/o), i am the unfortunate owner of a 'wheel gap' am i still allowed in?
More the merrier, I'm sure you won't be the only one with some wheel gap and TBH we've all been there :thumbup1:

Excellent.

Nothing wrong with that, they're still fun to drive, it's not driving it and still having wheel gap is the crying shame.

Seriously though, coilovers.

haha, its not totally stock though, its had a bit of the 1320Mini treatment.

Is a fair way for me though, from Cheltenham
Don't take me seriously, you'll just frustrate yourself haha! I've got a spare weekend ticket for MITP this weekend if you want to head over and find out what we're all about :thumbup1: Ads has done an awesome job of organising the stand this year.

So for those wanting a hoon. I feel a Beachy Head ring lap which is 7.3miles in lengh taking somewhere in the region of 5-15mins to complete, depending on speeds & traffic will be a good idea. :wink:

The meet I went on (the best one), there was some loon who was giving it the beans with his gap and nearly lost it.

Anyone else who hasn't been it's a riot.
