Autoshite Breakfast Club, ACE Cafe next time, Date to be arranged.

Recommended Posts

Edited now Super Sausage has been decided on, for the first meet on the 14th of April







Looking on with envy at all the various meets going on that are always millions* of miles away I've decided to stop pouting about no one doing anything locally and try and start one myself of occasional North of the River / Home counties transport cafe meets.


Breakfast may or may not be a good idea, it'd let those of us with other things that need doing pop out early and keep in the good books by being around in the afternoon. Just an idea tho lunch / coffee later may work for people from further so if I can convince any shiter to travel I'm always happy to go with the majority.


So, venue wise, these are some ideas as a starter.


I've always fancied the ACE cafe, I know it's a tourist thing to do but I feel I should tick it off at some point and my current lazyness means the ULEZ will make it to the M25 before I go down.


The Super Sausage is another one that is meant to be good and is further up North so might be in range for a few more people?


The Silver Ball near Royston is ok and nicely on the A10


Bike Stop in Stevenage is a decent Cafe on the old town High Street and ideal for bikeshiters as well as lazy sods like me as it's just on the road over from where I live


Dates wise, Sundays the 14th or 28th of April would be good with me as a start point.



So, anyone out there? If not at least I tried!

As a marginal victor we'll go for the 14th, hopefully if we aim for 9am the gates will have been open for an hour so there won't be too many people there.


I'll edit the title to reflect that and do apologise to anyone who it doesn't suit. When we go for the ACE for the next one we'll try and sort out dates for people that can't make this one.

Yep, I've been away for the weekend and was just going to drag it back up to the top.


It'll be very low key I'm sure. I'm still aiming to get there about 9am, forecast isn't horrible so will hopefully be on two wheels but reserve the right to roll along in the worlds most boring car if not.

Took the CX to a French car meet last year at the Ace. Only two cars turned up. Mine and some Peugeot 306. Dunno why they bother.


When you look at their events page it does look as if the intern has been tasked with making sure something / anything is on any given day.


Bloody hope it's a tad warmer Saturday morning than recently it's meant to be April ffs.

      It's not exactly Autoshite, but an event celebrating cars and popular culture from the 80s and 90s should come close enough! Radwood has been a thing in the states for a year or two now, I've been following it since pretty much the beginning and am quite excited that the first event outside the US is happening here. The premise is pretty simple, bring along your car built from 1980-1999, optionally you can show up in your period correct rad outfit (whatever that might mean to you). Ticket prices are quite affordable, 20 quid if you want to show up in your car (incl. a passenger) or 10 quid without the car.
      I'm currently trying to find out if anyone would like to join. I have the feeling that space for cars might be quite limited, with the show happening in about 4 weeks I'd rather book the tickets earlier than later.  You can find more info in the link below, if you are interest it would be good to see people post here.
      To give you a little idea what previous events looked like:

      Quick poll to see who is available when.
      Happy to update the polls with any suggestions!

      So for the first time in over 18 months because of reasons I made it to one of the Wednesday evening gatherings at Earls Barton. Lots of cars there but I do think they need to either rename this event and remove 'classic' or be more selective about what they let in as it was only about 50% classics and the rest were moderns. Loads of Binis, modern Beemers and Audis, Japanese performance motors, slammed VWs and the latest supercars, so I walked straight past a lot of dross to find the occasional gem. In front of the Maxi was a brand new 19-reg Mazda 3 - what the heck was that doing at a show?
      Anyway, pics of some of the good stuff...

      New venue just announced for FOTU 2019 - Saturday 20 July, 10am to 4pm at Claydon House, MK18 2EX (same general area as Stowe). Would make a nice 6-mile jaunt through the north Bucks countryside from the Field of Dreams. Concours applications open in January and general spectator/classic tickets will be available in March. Entry criteria has been widended too and it now says it's open to "unexceptional classics from 1966 to 1996".
