Nice one, thanks Dave.

Can you flag up the South Gloucestershire Show is on 6th and 7th August 2016, this is the one we've displayed cars out the last 2 years. Tony will be along with details at some point I'm sure.

The Wilton House Annual Supercar Day and monthly breakfast meets are good dates to flag up, however the Web seems to be down, I will let you know when back up,

Cheers
Dave.

Placeholder and date for South Gloucestershire show now added to the list (I'll add SLKWorld link once a thread has been created).

I just did a quick search for the Wilton House Annual Supercar Day and, unfortunately, it looks like there isn't going to be one for 2016: Wilton Classic & Supercar | Wilton House :(

If not a member & arrive early enough you will be able to join many other SLK's of all versions parked outside the entrance to Brooklands & adjacent to the SLK meet site itself, where entrance is free including the concours area.
I am planning on stopping in the Brooklands Hotel and looking around the Museum on the Saturday.

Action packed year :D
I've put my name down for the Lake District.
The Kent one is a bit far if don't stay over.
Will come to the cat and fiddle and the AMG meet.
Goodwood and the Trackday also sounds good.

I would come to the classic sports car meet, but will be in South France. Monaco F1 tickets are in the post :D driving there for about 2 weeks, if anyone fancies a road trip let me know.

I'll keep an eye on the threads.

Cheers.

The Shelsley Walsh February Breakfast Club meet (was due to have been on 14 Feb) has now been cancelled due to the amount of rain they have had recently.

Please note that Shelsley Walsh have chosen to make the Breakfast Club an Advanced Ticket only event with a small charge to cover administration fees.

Some of us went to a breakfast club meet at Shelsley Walsh last year Phil. There was a very wide variety of cars and people, anything and everything! Next one is on 13th March. Don't think I can make it at the moment but they have one every month! :smile:
