KnightCon 2012 - Route Planning

on Fri Aug 17, 2012 1:46 pm
What time are you leaving for Knightcon, Im planning on leaving around 10am on the Friday and meeting up with Rik and the others that are with him somewhere on the M6 and convoying with them. It would be great to see a nice trail of KITT's along the motorway Smile My friend will be doing some videos on route so who ever is in the convoy I will email the videos too if they want them.

I would think they will be going down the M5 and branching off at the M1 by Birmingham, so unless you going cross country via stoke and derby the best place to meet would be Xscape lol, you never know though might be someone else with a kitt that might convoy with you, Mike lives in Blackpool and Daniel lives in Burnley so you could meet up on the M62...orrr, you could meet up with the Newcastle lot by diverting yourselves onto the M1 and taking JN47 and coming the back road into Castleford as the Geordie boys will be coming that way

well... According to Google maps and my sat nav Stu is right it would take me M5, M42,M1, A1M,M62.....5hrs 41mins.

But if i redirect too M6 and across that way it makes no difference to time lol so don't mind coming across that way.

i always panic going to knightcon coz something usually goes tits up, im fine when im moving, its when i get stuck in traffic or something.

just had mine out and running crap even after adjusting the TPS all the way up so ive finally got the new IAC valve in, just need to relearn the ECU and test it tomorrow coz the clock is ticking until we leave !
