    Unfortunately our next big-ish club meet is the 3rd May at Silverstone. Will you be based in London for the few days you are here, or travelling anywhere else? None of our members live in central London, but a few on the outskirts and then dotted round the country.

    we have an SuperCar event of the 28th with a dozen club vipers attending, about an hour out of London in a car, its a good day with lots of other sporty marques and usually some very rare cars, could also probably get you a lap on aston martins old test track next door. I can promise you there will be cars you've never seen in the US ! :)

    guess it depends on what time your flight is back home if you could attend

    Is there rail service close to that area? I didn't plan to rent a car. I'm staying close to Victoria station

    WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!! :drive:

    We can't say no to that! You better draw straws to see who gets the better looking of us two! Note: it ain't me.

    Let us know what time you think the event will end and get us back to the train. I have to buy my London to Brussels train tickets for later that day!

    if you have an hour to kill in your hotel room, check out the TV station 'Dave' it has the Top Gear programmes on through out the day and night

    the car show go's on all day, usually people start disappearing around 4pm to travel home, did a little checking Warwick train station has a connection with Marlyebone station in London so you dont have to switch trains on the main line (just when your back in London youll need a tube trip) but it must stop plenty of times at other stations en route looking at the time it takes, will see if there's a better option for you

    here's some pics from last years event, so you can expect a similiar turn out, i collected US Mike and brought him along, he was over doing design work for Aston Martin at the time
