    Planning on attending the event for 1st time this year. Will be running a Caterham 7, which like the driver, is a little on the older side! Will be coming down from CT with friend Sebastian K and his self built Caterham. Looking forward to being back at NJMP after a long absence!

    Welcome aboard Neil. Hopefully Seb's bad influences haven't corrupted you. I'll add you to the list. Tom

    Neiljhamilton: Would both of you be driving your Sevens down, or trailering them? I am in the Boston area. Am planning to trailer, but if you are going to drive them down I might do that instead and join you...

    I will be driving my 7 down from West Hartford. I went two years ago and I think I was the only one who did not trailer. I will likely convoy down with wemtd who will trailer his Birkin. I did drive with the side screens and earplugs. I think without the side screens it would be a loooong trip. And I have full weather protection if really necessary. Though driving the NJ Turnpike in the rain may be pretty dodgy! And full disclosure, my car is a SV (wide body) with standard Caterham seats so I can shift around a bit

    ear plugs and helmet when driving long distances on interstates.
    I put my ezpass on the top right corner of windscreen: This is a must for all the tolls between Boston & Millville
    Oh.. and watch out for moving chicanes in NJ. BlackHole very nicely handled a full sized mattress in the center lane two years ago.

    Lets be realistic - its I-95. Its not a great drive and the potholes are fearsome this year - I doubt they will all be fixed in time. At least one trailer mother hen amongst a few drivers gives you some backup if BlackHole decides to take another nap in the center lane.

    The prospect of driving my se7en on I-95 to get to this event is what finally motivated me to buy a trailer, a tow vehicle, and to rent a storage spot for my trailer. Worth every penny.

    If you are convoying with WentMD, best to follow him rather than lead the parade, to stay visible to other drivers. If you are up front, in the cut and thrust of interstate driving someone could easily plan a fast pass of him, then dive instantly in front of him, only to see your se7en, maybe too late.

    Brookland screens, no weather gear, 6-hour drive from MA - sounds like I should rent a trailer.
