    Hi Guys,

    David Yu (of evo magazine fame) here again!

    Do any of you guys know of a club based in LA that is similar to Damon Hill's P1 that I was a member of?

    For those of you who are not aware of it, P1 is a club based near London that allows members access to an incredible array of supercars, including nearly all the f-cars (bar the Enzo!) and most of the P-cars as well as Gallardo, Murcielago, DB9, Vanquish etc.

    Their website is www.p1international.com to give you the full breakdown of cars etc.

    I have heard that in a recent issue of Vanity Fair, they mentioned a similar club is being established in LA.

    Can anyone head me in the right direction?

    Many thanks!

    p.s. the Cizeta article has been written and will be appearing shortly in Evo.
    I'm still pitching a short article about Crystal Cove, but have yet to find a firm taker!

    there was a mention about a club like this in forza or dupont. I forget which one. It was a point system. a 360 on a weekend was like 6 points. I think for like $25 k you get 25 points. It was a recent article. I'll see if I can find it.

    My company is currently working on it. You should see it open around the Fall '05 in Beverly Hills and '06 in Newport area.

    The membership dues will vary from $5k~30k, and monthly due between $750~$3,500. We will have this club run like some of the other social clubs, such as the Jonathan Club or the California Club (invitation only by other members).

    They are not in a full operation yet, and somewhat under funded.

    That's great, thanks guys!

    Are there any others? Was it HCC who were featured in Vanity Fair?

    Looks like there are going to be alternatives to sinking $100ks into your own car!

    Any further info gratefully received.

    That's what I thought-- I noticed that they had a big launch party back in May but I haven't heard anything since then. They probably blew their wad on the party hoping that the funding would follow; rarely a good idea (I've seen it too many times).

    So can anyone confirm the existence of a club already up and running?

    Does anyone know which one was featured in Vanity Fair?

    I saw an article in the LA Times a few months ago..they talked about Janett Jackson and a few other celebs being members. I don't recall the name of the club but some of the info in earlier post was quoted...point system to use towards cars of your choice...the more expensive the car the more points for use etc.

    They said it was based in LA...you may want to research the LA Times back articles???

    Another suggestion for Hollywood Car Club, who has a mention in a recent issue of Automobile Magazine here in the sates.

    David, if I could just take a moment, I really want to express my appreciation for you and the rest of the staff at evo, you guys do a phenomenal job. evo is hands down the best car magazine in the world. Keep up the good work.
