German day 'The Classic Motor Hub' Sunday 1st Sept 2019

Just visited the 'Classic Motor Hub' premises for a reccie. What a place. Full of stunning vintage, classic, rare and exotic cars and bikes in an immaculate and relaxed setting:

https://classicmotorhub.com/

I would highly recommend a visit if you are in or near the Cotswolds.
I was scoping out as a potential 'Breakfast meet' venue but they do not open on Sundays, apart from 'Event' days.
To that end, I have just booked myself in for the 1st September 'German Coffee and Classics' event:

https://classicmotorhub.com/shop/ger...mber-1st-2019/

Refreshments and live music during the day.

If anyone would like to visit/meet up on 1st September booking will need to be made swiftly as these events sell out quickly and there is limited parking for about 200 visiting cars.

Yes, I’ve had a look at some of the cars for sale and they need to be gold plated at those prices.
Even the bikes are over the odds.

Must admit, hadn't considered that but I'm not sure a convoy would be a good idea as the lanes around the place are very narrow with few passing places.
What do others think?

Previous car club meeting we all met up at the Starbucks on the roundabout OX18 4JF Burford A40 / A361 junction its then about 14 miles / 20 mins drive to the Motor Hub.
We came in along A40 to A429 to save going though Bibury village.
Road is narrow but no different than going through the village.

I am not familiar with the area so I will go along with the majority.

That is beginning to sound like a plan

Open to other suggestions for meeting, just thought if we arrived as a group it would be possible to all be parked up together.

Burford roundabout on the A40 is a good landmark and the road off the A40 down to 'The Hub' is certainly better than the road up from Bibury village.
Other place nearby, where there is plenty of space, is Burford Garden Centre though relatively expensive and service can be slow, especially if it's busy.
Such a pity that the old Windrush services on the A40 is no more........
