I did enter the car ( September 2017 ) but didn't get enough votes so it seems you have to pick your time ( and your photo! ) .

That's why we encourage folks to enter again.
Cars that have only had a few votes can eventually win.


The thread for May is here: https://www.slkworld.com/rotm-submis...mpetition.html

Entry is open until the 15th.

Thank you very much everyone! Really proud to be part of the ROTM Gang and was totally awed by the other photos (love Mike Florey's for the brilliant red and Mug's for the spectacular scenery against a delicious white)
I'm loving SLK ownership - she's had the following mods to make her more Nurburgring Friendly... and since being cherished by nimbusgb!
Suspension - Bilstein B8s and Eibach springs (plus rear spacers). All rear linkages replaced for adjustable ones
Brakes - Brembo slotted/drilled discs and fresh Brembo pads. Painted red so they work better
Engine - Mapped to 380 (at engine) and K&N filters
Exhaust - 2nd Cat delete and X pipe
Alloys - Diamond cut and lighter silver, black merc 3 star centre caps
Sound - Upgraded speakers in doors, subwoofer in passenger footwell and ApplePlay Kenwood touch screen interface
Paintwork - lots of love from my other half (he's a detailer, I'm lucky!) and 2 new rear lights
Roof - Smarttop plus 2 minute mod on antenna
She's managed a 09:30 round the ring and overtook an AMG GT-R so she aint bad
