Show of cars from 1.00 till 4.00pm. Probably take an hour for all the cars to leave from Pall Mall after that I think. Official site here.

So does anyone fancy going? Weather should be good. We could perhaps meet, take some pics of cars.....go for beer....take pics of cars moving perhaps at 4.00pm...or just of folk nearby...or whatever...then perhaps more beers before heading home....

Just throwing it out there. I can tell you that it is likely to be packed with folk.

This has already been mentioned in another thread but yes, im going.

Im not sure about times etc and i need to be at Holborn just after 4pm so i will miss the send off.
I cant agree to meet up as im out and about all day but ill certainly be going. aiming for 1pm but might be later.
Ill have my 30+17-55IS with me. Ill be wearing blue faded jeans and ill have a Tamrac V9 bag on my back. I know its not much to go on but if you do see me come and say hi.

Im looking forward to it. I missed last year but went the year before. i hadnt had my 350D long so i didnt get much.

Hi Dave,

It was me whomentioned it in a thread a month ago....couldn'tbe bothered resurrecting it so thought I'd just start another. I suspect there will be rather alot of folkwith faded jeans and Tamrac bags...but I'll keep a look out for you.

Gordon
Ah right. i couldnt be bothered to look either.
Ok, heres a clue.:hiya:

Just had a look at your pics....Were all the cars parked up like that when you last went? Last year they were all behind crash barriers and were lined up in middle of the road.

Gordon
Yes. when i went you could walk around all the cars, even sit in them if you asked nicely. They were parked in a big square area (im not sure what its called) but there were no real barriers apart from some that were marking out the send off route (and i didnt get to stay for that either)

I'm hoping to go along... it clashes with a picnic but i might be able to reschedule that with a few nice words to the missus.

Will deffinately be along. I'm expecting crash barriers to protect the cars again this year, along with a lot more along the start of the route, as they didn't have enough last year.

I'm thinking that it's probably best to get there for around 11.00 to avoid the inevitable crowds. Will have 5d, 24-105F4lis and possibly my 70-200f4l and a 1.4 extender although you'll see I've just posted about maybe not buying an extender and instead just going nuts and buying a 100-400F4-5.6isL tomorrow....although that would be extremely financially foolish of me....but fun.

Ive just borrowed a Canon x1.4 TC. Its one of the older ones i think. ive not used it yet but i might give it a go on sunday. To be honest i think for what i shoot i dont need it but i guess its a nice thing to have in your bag in certain situations. If i find im using it a lot ill get a Kenko one.

Ok, im confused.
I went there today (Sat). I hadnt read the titale of this thread properly but as i had seen it before on a Sat i thought it was all today.
I must admit i got bored and went home. I go there at 12 midday but by three there was no more than about 8-9 cars. i got a few shots but i had to leave.
So am i right in thinking its all happening sunday instead?
looking on the GB3000 website it seems a bit confusing.
If it is sunday then ill be there around 11am.

:hiya:
