Swindon 175 - 9th July 2016

Postby GTiJohn » Wed May 25, 2016 10:15 pm

A cavalcade of classic and modern cars will parade around Swindon’s unique Magic Roundabout.

As all 200s and 400s have had the majority of their panels produced at the MINI Plant in Swindon, formerly known as Pressed Steel, we've been invited to participate.

Once the display has finished, the cars will travel in convoy to Steam – the Great Western Railway museum for a static display which will be open to the public until approximately 9.45am. After that, an option will be there for people to attend the press works family day gathering The Magic Roundabout will be closed to traffic from 10.00pm Friday 8 July until 8.00am on 9 July.

If you would like to participate in the event, email Tanya Field: tanyafield@supanet.com

As I tend to have to use this roundabout on a daily basis I guess I'm obliged to attend :*laughing my fat rear end off*

It has obviously been mentioned in the local press already!

I have been in contact with Tanya and she has confirmed that she is still looking for a 25 or Streetwise and a 45. I understand breakfast is included but the downside is that you will need to be in Swindon by 6.45am!
If you are interested please contact Tanya direct on the email address at the start of this thread.

Jeez, Swindon must be boring: Even in Northampton you don't get a mention in the local press just for using a roundabout every day.
