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.
With warm dry weather and 20 Crossfires what more could we want – but with the added backdrop of the Chatsworth Estate this turned out to be a great Crossfire Meet. The day was made perfect with four new members joining the Club on the day, swelling our numbers to well over 100 members.
The selection of Crossfires included a mixture of Coupes and Roadsters including four SRTs, all shining in the bright sunshine. Chatsworth provided so much to see and do, and our members took full advantage of this, visiting the house and gardens. Our big thanks go to all those members who attended, especially those who travelled long distances including Bedfordshire and Worcestershire. Here’s looking forward to the next meet!
The newly formed UK Crossfires Club held its first meet of 2014 today. In glorious sunshine 21 Crossfires assembled at the Coventry Transport Museums Millennium Place. This provided a splendid area to park the cars, and the mix of Coupes, Roadsters and SRT’s put on a fantastic display which also attracted a steady stream of onlookers, may asking questions about the cars. With many of those attending their first Crossfire meet today, it was interesting to note that several had only recently acquired their cars, and it was great to see their enthusiasm for the new Club and our plans for this year.
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.
