ok so i am just testing the water here but as a suggestion.
one weekend in june maybe
leave UK friday morning and head to france and stop somewhere for lunch and meet up with some coming from the north south east and west
continue to a reasonably priced chateau somewhere nice
dinner in the evening
saturday off to go and visit something somewhere to do with cars
lunch
off again on a nice drive then back to the chateau
dinner
sunday morning off for a drive visiting something
lunch
fond goodbyes, back slapping, air kissing and all sorts and everyone agreeing what a great time we just had and see you in two years
the journey back to the tunnel
home sunday evening ish


i can fill in all the gaps with help from everyone here but that's a concept.
24 hours in a day, 24 beers in a case, coincidence ? i think not.

Like the idea!  If you can avoid Le Mans weekend and find a route that is unlikely to have too many opportunities to test my faith in the clutch (i.e. slow moving queues) then I think me and Mrs P would be interested.

sounds like a plan Russell. maybe we could leave the date open for the moment until we know of car events going on in France in 2015? But I guess you are thinking we need to book the Chateau soon. 3-5th July works for me. How about getting expressions of interest at this stage. knowing Vanquish owners, this could prove quite popular! Mike

the date is often the bigger issue with doing anything as everyone suddenly throws in that it clashes with something.
ok so if we start a cut and paste list and we can then work out the where later and take suggestions but assume somewhere in france ish 3-5th july
i normally would not exclude anyone as for me it is about the people not the cars but the last virage tour we did 50% were actually vanquish
for the moment lets keep it vanquish as thats the point of this really
copy and paste your name in as normal

does this proposal need a leg up? or are we trying to keep it to a very select bunch of 5 or 6??!!

i was going to give it a bump in the new year but it has dropped where it stopped. i thought there would be far more of a take up to be honest as it is only a weekend and would have been a bit of a hoot. something like 8-10 would be nice

oh the dates werent fixed but the general rule is we only change if all on the list can make a new date or we dont. that tends to be the fair thing.
try another date and lets see as the more the merrier surely

Hi Russell.

Any news on this trip yet?  Quite looking forward to properly stretching the Vanq's legs again in the summer, especially as I can't get to Le Mans because my niece is getting married then! 🎉🎎😳
