Arrow Photos from Meet at Mercedes-Benz World

Had a BMW meet at Mercedes-Benz World in Surrey, just ouside London on Sunday. Most of us have BMW's so not overly interested in Merc's apart from Peppernick who recently replaced his stolen 335d with a CLK. However, there were some awesome Merc's there, AMG's and the gorgeous McLaren SLR. Even the car park is worth a visit as there was a Porsche meet and a Ferrari meet and a lonesome Lamborghini.

MB World is next door to Brooklands Motor Museum where we got permission to take some pics on the old banked race track.

Enjoy!!


MB World, like Disneyworld but with cars...



Peppernick's new motor



My new motor



Typical scene at my supermarket carpark!



Pretty cool inside





Lots of MB history













Mixed with modern technology



View of the test track and skid pan open to the public



Modern beasts









Few more classics







Then on to Brooklands where we gathered on the 30ft banked race track













Peppernick's CLK



I think Nick collapsed!



Believe me it was steep!



My baby











Which one is faster?



Some more pics....








































Overall, a superb day and a fantastic turnout!!

The race track is very old and falling apart. It is covered in cracks and potholes so we could only drive at about walking pace. It was very very steep and the cars were under a lot of stress particularly with clutches and handbrakes! Lots of burning clutch smells as the cars reveresed into position.

Nick went on holiday and left his car with a friend for safe-keeping. His friend's house was burgled, they took the keys and the car was gone. Its not been seen since. As a result he had to cancel his M3 order and got the CLK as a replacement for the 335d. He's not disappointed, he's started modding the CLK already!

I'm probably one of the few, but SLR's do nothing for me.

Very nice pics though. That hill looked like it could have been a little fun.

I'm with you about the SLR's, so you're not alone. I just don't like Mercs, they are too over-rated!
