Driving to watch Vale in action– make sure your car’s up and running

Driving to watch Vale in action– make sure your car’s up and running

We all know that following Port Vale can involve a lot of travelling (the recent trip to Colchester United’s stadium clocked in at over 200 miles) and that can certainly put some strain on your car. While many Port Vale fans will travel to the fixtures by coach or train, a sizeable proportion will opt to drive to the big match themselves. With 23 away fixtures in the league – that’s an awful lot of miles to cover.

While the likes of local rivals Walsall and Crewe are relatively simple to get to there are some lengthy away trips. These now include the possibility of a lengthy trip to the Exeter City ground in the FA Cup should Vale dispose of Maidenhead United (which is another long away trip for those driving to the game).

It’s therefore important for all travelling Valiants to know where to go and who to trust when it comes to keeping your motor in top nick…

In fact the average journey distance for away games this season will be 67 miles for Vale fans. You’ll need a reliable car if you’re going to go to many away games this campaign. However, even if you have a really reliable vehicle to travel in (such as the new BMW 3 for instance) you may need the odd repair as you travel to watch the Vale play their matches.

It’s therefore important for all travelling Valiants to know where to go and who to trust when it comes to keeping your motor in top nick. After all, you don’t want to miss out on the game thanks to an unreliable vehicle! You should always do some simple checks before driving such as checking the air pressure in your tyres, checking the tyre tread is legal, check your lights work and that your oil and water levels are correct. But what if something else goes wrong?
