MEET REPORT: Southwest Meet & Drive

The 2nd SW meet this year was blessed again with beautiful sunshine, perfect weather for getting some roof down action for all the proud owners who attended on the day. The format of the event had to be changed last minute so it was a second version of the original meet back in March albeit a bit more slicker and organised by the fantastic Sacha!

7 cars turned up, not as many as last time, but we had a a variety of S2000s attend from stock, to tuned and it was such a great opportunity to share experiences of their cars and what makes them so special to the owner. That's what these meets are all about. Its great to meet local enthusiasts who are clearly so passionate about owning and driving these wonderful cars.

The day started at 9am at the Blue Bowl inn in West Harptree where some introductions and and general chit chat took place before leaving at 10am to make use of some of the best Somerset roads which are strewn across the Mendip Hills. 

First stop was Chew Lake for a photo shoot where the vista was exceptional, the road being a physical border to the lake at almost the same height. Other people including cyclists were also stopped to marvel at the scenery, and also the cars. Known well to locals, other machinery was also in attendance including a Ferrari 458 and a posse of C63 AMGs. We drove a 10 mile stretch of twisty and demanding B roads including the Cheddar Gorge where we parked for a while to admire the wonder of the place, at the same time as taking the opportunity to have a few blasts up and down with some photos. The Final leg ended at the Sidcot pub, where we relaxed on the outdoor veranda overlooking some of the Levels, with views towards Weston Super Mare.

What's great about this meet is it brings people together who otherwise would not meet in normal life. It allows to understand others point of view and to reflect on your own. There is always something to learn and someone interesting to meet and socialise with after. We had mostly new members turn up, Denise and Mike even getting a hotel the night before to attend!
