March is always a good month for Motor Sport activities, with the start of the F1 season, but also the first main event at Brooklands Motor Museum that we like to go to... the Mini day.
Although we went to the Mini Day last year it is a good event to go to, as it always seems to be well populated and hundreds of Mini's in attendance, so pretty much every sort of Mini you can think of was there to see..... there were large ones, small one's, old ones, new ones...... you name it, it was there ! The day was bright and dry as well, so perfect for walking around looking at cars (mind you, ANY day is perfect for walking around looking at cars in my view :-) )
After a few hours walking around looking at old mini's, we decided to do our usual trip to Mercedes World as well to look at new Mercedes. Lynn decided she likes the Blue SLK so maybe her next car. (The red one was no good and the AMG SL was too big...) We did disagree on which Mercedes-Benz SLR McLaren we would prefer (when we get a spare £350'000 or so...) Lynn preferred the coupe but I would only consider the Roadster... that kind of argument I can cope with :-)
I really like going to Brooklands/Mercedes World as it is actually a cheap day out (unless you order a Mercedes) and there are a lot of cars, planes and Bikes to look at which is always fascinating. There is a real olde-worlde feel to Brooklands, and a real space-age feel to Mercedes world. Might also get around to having a go in those AMG SLK's next time.....they sound MIGHTY !
