  • Run to the Rock - VXR National Meet - Rockingham

    Dear all,

    Maps, Timings will be posted over the next few days, if anyone has suggestions, please PM them to me.

    As usual, there will be regional assembly points and en-route pickups with a final off-circuit assembly for the cruise into the circuit

    If you haven't registered, the list is now full, but you can sweat it out on the reserve list => Click Me

    PS: Trust me, the parking will be better arranged this time.

    All maps and timings are now available here

    Timings and routes calculated using Microsoft MapPoint and no account has been made for road conditions or driving style. Each intermediate stop, for multi-leg routes have a 15 minute relaxation break between arrival and departure.

    The final assembly point is Tesco's Car Park on Fletton Parkway (A1139), about 2 miles from Brampton Hut Services on A1 (J17) [Brampton Hut services is too small]. It's easy to find (according to alex_c :P )

    From there, its a 20 mile convoy to Rockingham

    Please let me know if there are any mistakes or amendments.

      *** PLEASE BE CONSIDERATE ***

      If you are unable to attend, please let me know as there are many people on the reserve list and there were some notable absentees from the Brands Hatch ( I know who you are) and your ticket could have gone to someone one the reserve list...what a waste ;(

        The Assembly point has been changed due to advice from local members who say that Peterborough to Rockingham route would break the convoy up due to lots of road changes (junctions).

        As a result, all the staging meeting point times have changed and the good news is that it has resulted in 15mins extra in bed.

        The new assembly point is

        BSH Home Appliances Ltd
        Hipwell Road
        Kettering North Business Area
        Kettering
        NN14 1UA


        Now, this will probably not appear on most Sat Nav systems as the place is VERY new but it is easy to find. Here's a Streetmap Link - It is on the A43, just off J7 of the A14.

        From there, it's a straight "Run to the Rock" of about 10 miles

        Kind thanks to Michael Parkes (a VXROnline member) as this is his work place and has ample parking for us.
