    OK i've emailed Meguiars to see if the can help.

    Failing that 26th at the JDHT it is.....

    As such how many can make the 19th (Daventry) and how many can make the 26th (JDHT in Coventry)?

    I did a trackday at Curborough last May, 10 of us there, £50 each for the day (8am-5pm). It's only one person on the track at any time, so no risk of crashing with anyone else.
    Don't know if that's anything people would be interested in, rather than watching others doing hillclimb?

    Right then, news. Meguiars have just got back to me. That day (19th) is outside their normal opening hours but:

    With reference to your email.

    "Thank you for taking the time to contact us hear at Meguiar's UK. The day that you have suggested falls out of our normal opening times. What would you have in mind for Meguiar's and your members to be doing. I may be able to staff the day."

    I was going to say yes and then get names etc from this forum and also mercedesclub.org too and hopefully we'd end up with 10-20 folk which would make it worthwhile him coming in (providing we bought something ;) ).

    What do you all think?
