This is not an SLKWorld organised tour, but some SLKs are joining it.
Note that there is an evening event on 26th.

From the site:-

3 Countries / 4 Days / 80 Cars / 1 Event
England / Wales / Scotland

The 4BallR 2019 is a driving event, with similarities to the Gumball 3000,
Cannonball Run and many of the smaller 'Rally'-type events, but with added tents.

In short, it is a group of car enthusiasts piloting cars they love to drive, from London to Edinburgh via Wales, The Lake District, The West-Coast of Scotland and various daytime and evening stops and stop-overs. At the aforementioned evening stop-overs, we will be erecting a very large fully-LED lit inflatable event dome to enable our live entertainment, socialising, eating and drinking, with everyone spending the night in their own (provided!) tent right there on site.

The event is designed for car fans to get out and drive their cars for pleasure along some fantastic roads here in the UK - about 1000 miles! The event is designed to bring together like-minded individuals for fun and atmosphere.

You bring yourselves, your car and your sense of adventure.
Fuel and food costs will be required naturally but that's it!


COSTS:-
Want to join our event and be part of the atmosphere?
£25 secures a space! Limited spaces, naturally.
Two participants, one car.
£299 Full Entry. £349 from 1st December
£75 For extra participant.
£30 Extra two man pop up tent.

Latest on price:
"One real life-affecting 4BallR change to mention will be the price. For those already signed up via a deposit, you won’t have to worry. For those who haven’t taken action, take a note. From December 1st there will be a price-increase from £299 to £349 in order to cover our updated insurance costs for the event."

'We supply nothing, guarantee nothing, insure nothing .... but you do get a £20 tent for your £299'

I'm in the wrong business! :)

Were in Yorkshire, so 4hrs from Edinburgh and 3 1/2from London. Can't win either way. Thankfully the start is near Wembley so not right in the center, and plenty of main stream hotels

This is only 6 days away. Discovered the tents being supplied for us are good Quechua pop up tents, circa £100. Hope this weekends weather is a omen for next weekends. 🤞

Gotta laugh.

All the way to London, then back through Snowdonia, my doorstep.

Money says Ponderosa is on itinary.
We might duck that for café on outskirts of BYC.

What a hoot!
Real mixture of cars. From the magnificent Lotus to a humble 1.6 C'eed.
A hand built Mini, 3 TVRs, XR3i, M3s, RX8, Golfs, Saab estate, Celica and many more.

Everyone enjoyed it. All finished.
All want to do it again.


The two 350 SLKs executed the route with distinction.
They certainly surprised the ill informed.


The wackiest moment was pulling into a café to be greeted by @Garfalls
He was on a tour with another group of cars. Chances of that!

Took the opportunity to catch up with @DAVIETHESCAFF whilst in Fife.

A few pics of the start and finish.
Plus one for @Simon cliffe and his two wheeled fetish.

Final night of camping and a 22mile single track road to the site.
Last couple of miles took bites at Lotus, TVRs and SLKs.

Saw the dam and thought of @frogfoot

Great view of Sgurr A Mhoaraich uring our long drive down the single track.
It was worth being midge fodder for that drive alone.
