Caffeine & Machine Meet



I'm in the middle of London therefore can start from pretty much anywhere. Happy to pull together a route and if needed lead the convoy.

That would be great mate if you dont mind doing that.I guess it will be an early start,depending on how long your route will take us & would say look to get there for 9-10am?

C&M seems to be busier than ever post-lockdown. Last time I arrived a few minutes into the afternoon slot and it was rammed.

I’ll be heading A303/A34 and then across to Banbury via the A/B roads north of Oxford as it’s a bit less tedious than M40.

I think with this weather also mate makes people there garage queen cars out,but we should aim to get there for 9am latest i think,if its a sunny week.

They also seem to have changed their approach to influencers and other stand out cars and are giving them priority position. I’m not massively fussed but ended up parked in a dusty field last time .

But it looks good for them on social media to have the more eye appealing cars there, which you can understand.

If it was full of "normal" cars, it wouldn't look so fancy.
Agree bud. I’m heading to Podium Place near me at the weekend - seems quite a cool hangout and only half an hour up the road. Despite being a shiny car freak I’m not overly bothered about being “seen” but I do get mildly pissed when I’m asked to park the shitty old Clio out of sight so the influencer driving Daddy’s supercar can get the attention they desperately crave 😂😂

Is it just a place to get breakfast etc? It’s 3+ hours away, worth the drive?

In reality yes. The bonus is a lot of varied machinery usually on display. Worth a 3 hour trip? As a one-off maybe but it’s a long way to go.

There is a link on the bottom of each route to have a look on the routes on Google Maps.

Let me know your feedback please on either routes & we can choose one route or split off into to 2 groups.As i understand not all will want to do a long route etc.

Thanks

ROUTE 1 Looks more twisty back roads etc but would have to ask @plenty on this.

ROUTE 2 Is a more easy going route with flowing A & B roads & bit of Motorway.
I only know the roads around my way, and with cars parked on the roads, junctions etc, it could make keeping a convoy together tricky on Route 1.
Route 2, less so.
Just my tuppence. 👍

Very true. If we have more than about eight cars then it’s quite possible people will get split up. We’ll just have to accept that.

Yep were bound to lose a few on route but were all heading to the same end place,each person will just have to have there google maps on etc so if lost can easily get on route to Caffeine & Machine.

Since route two comes past my door. I’ll pick the convoy up here.
It won’t let me add a photo, ill edit in when it does.
But I’ll wait for you outside Shefford on the A507. Ill get an idea of the timings later I’m sure.

I don't mind arranging the Towcester services meeting point? Just need an idea of timing for us to meet here. I know @Bubbles is fairly close by too. I'm sure either of us would be happy to help.

Please mate,i think the meet point discussed was the BP station on the A43 round about?.but upto you on where to meet us,have a look on the route & see whats best as you know the area better.
