  1. Anyone going to this years Run to The Sun in Newquay? It’s back after 10 years. Hopefully will be back to it’s old roots as an Aircooled VW show but we’ll see.
    I’m going in my early.

    But I was led to believe that the camping it is actually no where near Newquay.
  3. It’s at St Mawgan, near Newquay airport so only 10mins out of Newquay

    It looks like the venue is a village some 16 miles from Newquay (St Mawgan).
    That makes it a 650 mile round trip for me at an average 55mph and 18 to 20 mpg....... So approximately 6-7 hrs driving each way and around £280 in fuel (at £1.75 per litre) with additional £80 for 2 tickets for the one night/2 day event.

    And the food
  7. St Mawgan is only about 5 miles out of Newquay, the site for RTTS is right next to Newquay airport. Less than 10mins drive from the old site. Probably not worth the trip if you don’t live in the southwest but as i live in Devon and regularly frequent this area of Cornwall, I thought it would be worth a look. Driving anywhere in an old VW is expensive now with the cost of fuel although the price of unleaded has come down to around 1.45 a litre down here so not as expensive as last summer.

    I looked at my figures.. my round trip to the Vee Dub show was 650 miles at 21mpg.. about £240 in motorway petrol... for an hour in a disco, loads of beer and voting for Simon's Daisy in the Show n Shine.. and about £40 of swag. And two sessions of sitting in campers and chatting.

  12. I’m coming from mid Devon. I’ll probably join the run on the A30 at okehampton. It’ll be great to get a bunch of late bay guys to join the run down together.

    Wouldn't mind going - not too far for me from the Hampshire/Dorset border... but the music looks pants! ;)
