Re: Stoneleigh National Kit Car Show 2nd and 3rd May

Yes, the M1 is best avoided! Setting off from Jack's Hill, I take the minor A-roads and Bs, and usually fit in a small loop at the end to drive up the Stoneleigh Test Hill, used by Coventry's motor and motorcycle manufacturers in the '20s. Coming back to Northampton via the A45's a quicker option wh...
