    So having spoke to a few of the guys I think its worth finding out and gauging interest if anyone would like to do the NC500. I personally think this one could take a lot of planning so worth saving it for next summer to give everyone the chance to book holidays etc. Just completed it myself , got back home yesterday and its well worth putting on everyone's bucket list. Let me know what you all think [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Yeah put me down for this.

    What's the roads like for us hard suspension people lol do I need to order a new spine with the NHS on return?

    I guess not everyone needs to drive either as people need passengers etc

    we had 2 people in each car and split the fuel. I think I spent around 250-300 on fuel in the 280. Roads are actually kept in really good condition due to the fact it's become so popular.

    I’d be up for this, I could invite a mate of mine. He drives practically the same car as me only his is an Audi A3, point is we could share the driving comfortably.

    Could combine my love of cars, scenery and photography into one. It’s the perfect trip

    Now to get it past the task master (erm... I mean the Mrs that I love dearly lol)

    Had a discussion with MrsMaypack and I’m up for this.

    I know it’s early to ask but when roughly would this be done? I usually go abroad for 2 weeks in August with MrsMaypack and that is a MUST!! Other than then all I’d need to do is get my leave in early at work and I’m there.

    Would you be looking to cap the number of cars doing it too?

    I guess it's all up to the organiser lol normally it's SCN/SEAT's only but it's not a normal meet...

    Personally (maybe just me) I'd prefer to keep it smallish and with people I already know so it's a cohesive unit when I'm with them for 5 days lol but I'm a guy that just deals with things so I'm happy either way.

    @ChrisJKM as you've just been what's the hotel situation like as that may choose numbers for us lol

    Open to anyone I suppose. We had four cars. I'd say 6-8 max or you'll start pissing people off on the single track roads. but people wouldn't have to stay together as long as we met up in the same town on an evening etc. or have a meet up in a car park each day . accommodation would be fine I think if booked early enough.

    I think we need a list of who wants to do it so we can keep track of who’s in.

    Thanks @Jimbobcook. I’m on my mobile and it’s not easy to navigate this forum on it

    Have you tried just going to the forum using your browser instead of Tapatalk? I think the mobile browsing is great by itself...

    Id say go with this time of year again. Everyone said avoid any kids holidays. The roads where reasonably quiet. The single track roads would be a ball ache in summer when busy.
