Monthly "German vs Japanese" car meet - Sandown Park Racecourse - Sunday 5th Jan

Post by mr.brown » Wed Jan 01, 2020 2:11 pm

A Surrey based monthly meet has just moved to a much larger location (room for 3000 cars) at Sandown Park Racecourse.

Their info is Facebook based so apologies for those who don't use FB.

£4 to get in and catering facilities on site.

I might be able to make this. The Facebook page doesn't show many classics though - or not as many as I'd like.

Yeah, I've no idea of the make up of the attendees - if it turns out to be 90% Jap or all modern BMW/Audi/Merc I may not stay long.

It was a bit mad tbh - I don't think they expected over a thousand cars. It was gridlock in all directions for a while. It took me 25 mins and i only live a mile away. Lots of dickheads trying to drift out of the car park at the end to please the dickheads lined up on the street - I don't see it lasting long.

Sound like Jap fest I drive past on the way home from Stanford hall VW show last summer, lots of idiots wheel spinning and racing along the dual carriageway, dump valve noise galore, there was loads of police sat in lay-bys waiting for them.
I did see one car crashed in the hedge just after a round about with his front wheel pointing in a different direction to the other, they was all ok but I could not stop laughing.. :-D
