It'd be like a spiritual homecoming for a big Imp.

If it made it.

Personally, I'd have no objection to members in other interesting cars, be they Issigonis designs, or mini based.

Oh, Bugger.

Mark has the date list I put together, but I didn't have the thistle run down for that time of year?

Still, it might work well if it is though, as it may cut down on too many other folk swelling the numbers. Of course there may be some Scottish folk would normally do the Thistle run.

Last years Thistle run was in the South East, so unlikely to be in the same areas next year at least.

Holding the Mk1 road event in the Borders on same day as the Thistle Run may not be a show-stopper if these events are held in different areas. They are likely to be very different, with maybe 200 cars on the Thistle Run and 20-30 on the Mk1 run. How many of the likely entries for the Mk1 run would normally be attending the Thistle Run?

With the smaller Borders roads it's probably more important to avoid clashes with the cycle events. And potholes.

I like to think we will be the Fortnum and Mason to their Lidl

:D

Just trying to get confirmation where the T/R will be running next year, and waiting on word back from Police Scotland if they are aware of any other potential conflicting events I've not seen advertised.

Bike events appear to be clear, certainly the closed road one.

I like Lidl. Some of my favourite tools came from the local store, and their electric rattle gun is a brilliant bit of kit.

But not sure I would want to join 200 Minis in procession, or go on a run with F&M picnic hampers in every boot...

I think you'll find all the classy minis have F&M hampers! This was our 'roof box' to go to Goodwood one year. :lol:

and yeah, half my tools are from there too.

In my experience you will also need a Fully qualified Mechanic with a suitable tool box with spares on road event! :)
