    I heard about the M40 from a couple of other members, even got a photo sent through of them sitting on their chairs on the motorway. The radio report I heard at 7pm said it was closed because of a lorry fire that had spread into a near by feild

    and to top it off i needed the toilet and nearly ran out of fuel lol. we did some nice burnouts on the m40 though whilst bored. when we left tracks we had to go on a drive into milton keynes to change some seats, if it wasnt for that we might have slipped through. hope others got home okay

    Well I did the old tom tom and avoid m1 trick. Wicked home within 45 mins no cues or traffic just country lanes and open road. Oh an of course the bloody average speed camera rubbish so couldn't take full advantage of the situation. Oh and the marshalls opened the rear entry up so I didn't even cue to get out just drove straight passed everyone. Best get home I ever done.

    Now I'm off to lube up (aftersun).
    Its a jam thing

    Once out of the A46 I made very decent progress and managed it in a tad under 3 and a half hours...
