Pub details : The Elms, St John's Business Park, Lutterworth LE17 4HB
damn, The Elms have just replied to me to say they open at 11am - strange time to start doing breakfasts ! Anyway, we'll be in the pub from 11.
We will be in 2 of our 480s, hopefully my daughter in law will be with us in another of our 480s and if my son gets home from a business trip to Germany the day after Brexit, he'll be there in a V60.

Just been back on the volvo600 website and they have posted an amendment to say that dogs will NOT be allowed on site (issues with insurance).
I suggest that everyone planning to come checks the website nearer the time to see if anything else has changed.
They have also now clarified that the parade will be in the order of arrival at the gate, so if we want to have our 480s together, we need to arrive together and all have our paperwork printed out with the required sheet displayed on the inside of the windscreen.
We will be at the Travelodge in Lutterworth LE17 4HB which is only 15 mins away, carpark should be pretty empty by mid morning. Anyone wanting to join us there very welcome - we plan to leave about 11.30. Any cars not in Bruntingthorpe by 2pm risk not getting in at all.

Is that general Volvos or just 480s?

It would be nice to get a group of 480's together, even if its after he actual attempt. I suppose getting us to parade together is down to working out a meeting point before the start.

oo, not long now !! I've just been told that the XC90 owners are planning to park their cars all together after the parade for photos - excellent idea !! I can't find anyway to contact the organisers to find out if there are any plans to designate areas for each model/series to gather but it would be good if we could get all the 480s together afterwards.

My son and I are doing this in the V40 as I don't collect the 480 until 6th April :( He LOVES a good world record so to be a part of one will be a story he can tell his friends!
....We'll stay back and just admire the 480s from afar! :lol:

Just a note: This is Mother's Day, in case any of you had plans you'd 'accidentally' forgotten about with your dear old ma and the clocks change on this morning too (they go forward an hour). :)
