I am organising a meet in UK for the forum members.
This meeting will take place on April 23rd at Castle Coombe Raceway (near Swindon, Wilts).
Car clubs can apply for a space in The Paddock, to park/display their cars, and I have managed to get a space for us !! but I need to let the circuit know how many vehicles will attend. If you would like to join in, please reply to this post or send me a PM.
I'll need to know your SLK type and year registered.
For more details about the Action Day and prices, please follow the link. Advance tickets can be purchased, it'll save you a couple of quid.

good thinking beverage !! I'll do that.
Are you coming ?
I'm off in Florence that weekend - blooming typical [:(]

But I have a vague recollection that you said in a previous post that there's another Castle Coombe track day in June/July - so if April's a success, I'll plan to be there for the June one!! [8D]

Think I'd rather be in Florence !!
There are another couple of Action Days over the summer, so we'll sort another one.

I would like to be there, but there is nothing special about my SLK that makes it worth showing. Is that the main part of the day?
Also does it cost £40 to take your car on the track? I'm just having a little trouble getting my head round the pricing and what an 'Action Day' is.

What happens at the meeting

Hi TexasUK.
I wouldn't say that MY SLK is anything special to show. The main reason for getting the space on the showground is basically to use it as a meeting point, rather than trying to all meet in the bar etc !
At least on the showground you'll find the SLK owners easily. The idea of the event was really to meet the forum members, and this event seemed to be ideal, as there is also other things going on. I'm not taking my car on the track this time, so will only cost me a tenner max. There's other car clubs there, and the track sessions are quite good fun to watch. Gotta put up with a few naff cars and shed loads of Scoobies, but otherwsie its a good day out (in the sun) and chance to meet some of your fellow forum friends !

Last chance for a space

I will be sending the application form to the race circuit today (Tues) to reserve the spaces in the paddock area. Please let me know today by posting here, or PM, if you want to join us.

So far, just 4 of us from the forum. A few of the guys are away that weekend. I'll have a few spare tickets, so maybe some "late-comers" will attend. It'll be a fun day out anyway, and the others said they would attend the next meeting. The first one is always the hardest !

Wish I could come, but it's a bit of a travel from Switzerland, and my birthday falls on that weekend, so gotta spend time with friends/family/GF, etc... :\

That would be awesome if you came over Shini !! but i know its a long drive. There are more events in the summer, so maybe next time we can arrange in advance, and of course if u want to come over, there will be space at my house to stay.
und Herztlich Geburstag / Bon Anniversaire, for that weekend ! (not sure if you're in german or french speaking area)
