We’ve taken our cars to various places around the country. Here is a list of meets and events that we have been to in the past.
On Sunday 14th October 2018 a little bit of history was made for the UK Crossfires Club when it celebrated the 15th anniversary of the first cars registered in October 2003.
In what can only be described as awful weather conditions, 76 cars made the trip to Claydon House in Buckinghamshire to line up for a truly unique event in, not only the Club’s history, but also in that this was the largest gathering of the iconic car anywhere in Europe. Initially it was thought that this may have been the largest gathering anywhere in the world but on the 29th October our hopes were dashed as we were told that 84 cars assembled for the Tail of the Dragon drive in the USA in 2010. However, we know that if the weather had been better a further 10 cars would have been present, so a moral victory in our eyes. Particularly when you consider that the UK only registered c.4,500 cars out of the 76,000 totally produced, with the majority being registered in the USA.
Bank Holiday Monday saw the UK Crossfires Club attend the Knebworth Classic event for the first time in Hertfordshire.
Well what a day!
Event Report Blenheim Palace 29th July 2018
After all the wonderful sunny weather we have enjoyed at the previous meets the heavens opened up and it was wet... very wet.
So plans had to be changed on our parking arrangements as the grass was too wet by the North Gates so after a few discussions we parked in the East Courtyard which is most unusual for permission to be granted to be used for a car meet. It proved a great backdrop for the 14 cars that braved the weather from the original 32 plus 4 that we did not know were coming.
A new venue for the club and came highly recommended by local member John Gilbert.
The privately owned, non-profit-making exhibition provides local artisans the opportunity to exhibit their skills and craft in the many workshops on site. The vast array of sculptures around the venue is truly mind boggling! From small metal animals and ornaments to a massive Gorilla in a cage and a 10-foot-tall sculpture made entirely from knives repossessed by the Police as an example of this terrible crime.
It has been a long time since we visited this magnificent House and Gardens in Yorkshire.
As a club we try to arrange visits around the country and Yorkshire has been an area that we had been asked to include so it was disappointing that only 6 cars made the event, with not one Yorkshire member, on a lovely sunny day.
