Driving in London

Evening all

I often have a few hours free in London sometimes late night and love driving around town and having bit of a play with what ever cars are about. Usually alot flasher and faster than mine!

The question is really, do you know of anywhere at anytime in or around London this takes place.

used to be based in Milky beans (Milton Keynes) and every sunday night without fail there would be a large number of cars gunning it around all the roundabouts and dual carriage way races.
Also a bit of fun parking up a looking at the motors in the car park in the centre. Most of which were money pit chav mobiles but still a good laugh for a sunday.

Ace Cafe is an obvious one obviously depends on the night what you are going to see. Petrolhead nirvana is probably the best night to get down to though for exotica..

You're never going to get hundreds of lambo's just flying around the streets of london at night. Firstly London is too congested, 24/7, for that. Secondly there are speed cameras on every trunk road in an out, usually within 2 miles of eachother, and thirdly police presence is just too high.

You'll get the occasional nutter but never a convoy or etc.

I find good places to see exotic metal though in the cente are for instance on the strand or selfridges/harrods carparks.. etc

There were a big group of Ricers cruising Embankment not that long ago. Central London not many speed cameras.

To be honest an E90 post meet is the best time for what you want

usually they have ideal locations, like minded people in similar papered motors. Which is alwas a joy on decent roads.
