I happen to be off that day and would like to attend. Being a Londoner I'm sure I can attend for a while at least :) still planning to do a midnight run through the city before the ULEZ comes into force. Then have to start thinking of a 2gr swap to be ULEZ complaint as before long my home will be inside the ULEZ zone :(

It won't make any difference, they view the car, not the engine. If it's a Euro-4 car you're fine, no way an MR2 is getting an exemption.

AFAIK all Mk3s from 01/03/2001 (Y prefix) onwards are exempt.
I entered one here - https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ultra- ... ecker-ulez
It came up as: You are not subject to the ULEZ.

Back on topic. :)

The majority of the poll so far is for the 31st.

It's not worth it unless people are willing to commit to this. So let's see the colour of your money. :)
If the spaces below are not all taken up it isn't going to get off the ground, never mind fly.

Was thinking of starting around 11-11.30 and lunch at the finish.
Changing it is not a problem. Depends on what participants would prefer.

Will check with the missus - i'd suggest starting a bit earlier as I guarantee it'll take longer than expected.

The last London Run was more than 10 years ago. I have no idea what traffic conditions are like now.
Happy to take any suggestions re timing on board. As long as we can get something to eat at the finish.

@andyroo - no problem with a GT86 AFAIAC. :)

I'm good for this, and knowing what I know about the intended route and about how London traffic is, i'd suggest we try and start at 10am (providing we can get all people to the start point by that time)
