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.
Though we are in the midst of autumn the sun was shining brightly for the UK Crossfires Club when 19 Crossfires arrived for our meet at the Donington Grand Prix Collection at Donington Park Motor Racing Circuit. This fantastic turn out far exceeded expectations especially considering the long distances travelled by many members.
The great weather meant that a lot of time was spent meeting and chatting with old friends and new, comparing the cars and swapping tips on maintenance and keeping our cars in tip top condition. We were then able to view what is regarded as, quite simply, the largest showcase of Grand Prix racing cars in the world. It was fascinating to see the cars close up. These included the cars driven to victory by all the famous names in formula 1 through past decades, through to the modern F1 championship series.
We made good use of the restaurant facilities and after a full day of activities set off for the journey home with an impressive convoy of Crossfires heading out to the M1. Many thanks to all who attended and for helping to make this such an enjoyable day.
The UK Crossfire Group met for our annual Winter Warmer meet in early December. We had decided on a change of venue, and a different format for this year’s get together, so the group headed off to Milton Keynes. With so many choosing to stay over on the Saturday night, drinks and a superb 3 course meal was organised at the The Nags Head at Great Linford. An evening of eating, drinking and conversation was enjoyed by all; and this was only surpassed by the great hospitality provided afterwards by Simon and Louise.
The UK Crossfire group met up at the National Heritage Motor Museum at Gaydon to celebrate an important milestone for the Chrysler Crossfire.
Just as the sun came out to dry up the wet roads, fifteen Crossfires arrived at Beaulieu, and soon we had a warm and sunny day top enjoy all that this fantastic venue has to offer. With a massive range of cars and motorcycles, both British and foreign examples from the famous, and lesser known manufacturers, there was lots to see. All the vehicles on show are beautifully restored and presented. The 50 James Bond cars and film props added another dimension to the displays with the familiar vehicles from the films on show, many showing the battle scars from the stunts in the films. Further entertainment came from the Top Gear show, again using many of the vehicles we have seen featured in the TV series. For the first time at UK Crossfires meet we used our new Events Shelter – this provides a great focal point for our meets, providing an undercover area for us to sit and chat. To fund this project we have started our raffles which will take place at future meets, and everyone is asked where possible to bring along a modest raffle prize. Many thanks to all who attended and helped to make this a fantastic day.
