i did a tunnel run lastyear, it was filmed as a promo for The Candy Run (which got cancelled) But it was great fun.

Had a Noble m12 infront of me & a Ferrari 430 following most of the time. It was mental trying to drive fast round central london with a DB9 along side taking all his lane & some of mine :rolleyes:

The run started at the carpark just off Edmund Hillary Way which is very close to the dome, it meant we were about 2 mins from the Blackwall Tunnel. We did all the tunnels in London i think, but they've got scameras in the Limehouse Link which is a PITA!!!The run took in 5 tunnels & also the Westferry roundabout (Underground near Docklands) which was fun as everyone was just doing laps & laps at speed & making lots of noise :drool:

Alternatively if we meet up before a run it could be at Bluewater, as it's very close to the entrance to the of the Dartford Tunnel??

I cant find an itinery of the route from last year which is quite annoying, but here's some linkys of some action from the night:

Right...

firstly... ive managed to sort out all my internet crap so i can actually get online and 'get on the ball' lol

secondly... im gonna have to postpone the 6th as my car is still f***ed and i wont know untill the end of this weekend if its gonna be on the road or not.

This tunnel run will happen and it will happen soon, i just want my car to be involved as i am the one organising it!!!!

when we finally do get this thing organised, you can bring as many people as you like. the bigger the convoy the better.

However... i put my foot down when it comes to vauxhall nova's and renault clio's!!!! lol

i will keep you all informed of the progress my car is making.

thankies muchly
