Is anyone going to this that would like to car share ?
I am happy to take my Prius (60 mpg on motorway) and share the driving from any suitable join up point along the route or suitable alternative.

Given I will be unlikely to be able to do all the driving myself, I would appreciate sharing it if possible.

Otherwise, given the train costs or the long drive I will probably not be able to go.

A good weekend was had by all. Only Frank made it to the track on Friday, in his Skoda Elmo pick-up, but Saturady and Sunday were spent talking about all manner of EV related topics (and some unrelated).

A proper write-up will follow, but the weekend was a success. Same again next year!
