Southern Meet Ace Cafe Monday 21st August

Postby stephendell » Wed Aug 16, 2017 6:04 pm

Back to the Ace Cafe for the summer months.

French Classic & Performance Night officially from 6pm but no one is usually there before 7.30 - 8.00pm.

Plenty of parking and food at reasonable prices.

Ace Corner
North Circular Road
NW10 7UD

Let's see if we can have a good turn out this month.

Will we get any surprise visitors like August 2016...

Hi Lee,
I'm hoping to get along tonight so see you there.

Regarding your headlights, when I had the mystery problem of the main and dip bulbs blowing due, as it turned out to an alternator problem I just used the side lights and the fog lamps for a couple of weeks...!

Cheers, Barry.

Sorry no pictures of Simons 21 turbo on a trailer.....

A "select" turnout last night, in shifts, good to see Barry, Simon, Stephen and Mark at the Ace. Hope everyone got home safely and without incident.
Sorry about the quality of the pictures, grease on the camera lens.
The whole place was quite empty, which seemed a surprise, I guess it's summer holiday season maybe.
Bigger turnout next month everyone?

Ace café meets have died a death, not just our club, there was hardly anyone there at all last night. Not been a great one for 2 years or so.
never thought I would want a list but now find myself needing one just to remind me: Clio V6 230, Clio cup racer (X85), Clio 200 (X98) clio 182 (X65) (Riku's), Renault sport twin turbo in Panorama blue (van), Spider (Xciting) Clio220 Trophy.

Sorry I didn't make it guys, but the weather was looking pretty dodgy for a car with no roof - shame as it was young "swag supercars" only real chance to come to a meet (as they normally finish too late for school the next day). Never mind. Next month perhaps?

He didn't miss anything Ian. I only popped in around 9.30 (in sensible roofed car). Really nothing there at all.

I think the main problem (apart from money being a bit tight for many) is that it's such a pain driving around London.
After a long day at work the idea of faffing around in North Circular (or whatever main artery) traffic puts a big grey cloud over the idea, which combined with the possibility of a real grey cloud over London (Iffy weather), makes it a chore.
