    I'm heading to Europe some time in June, maybe Paris but Ive never been to London & I'd like to drop by. Anybody know if the FOC UK will have a race somewhere near London in June or July ? Also how far is Bedford from London ? Thanks

    William,
    please see below for FOC UK calender for Summer 2003. I'm pretty sure their schedule will be similar for next year too, but I'll email you a copy of 2004 after Christmas.Drop me an email nearer the time as i live and work in London and would be more than happy to meet you for a beer and suggest some cool things to see.
    The British Grand Prix will be highlight of July. Bedford will be approx. hour and half drive from Central London
    Tony

    I currently live in central London just next to Westminster.

    Drop me an email via my profile if you want any information.

    Lots of cool garages around, Park Lane for Aston Martin, McLaren (currently have an F1 on show), Rolls Royce (have a Phantom), Lamborghini (3 Murcies in a small showroom), Ferrari (few garages around).

    Car spotting is awesome, on one 20min walk i saw 8 DB7s, 6 996TTs, loads of SLs and wait for it... Challenge Strandale (first in country... got delivered a day previously).

    Normal things, London Eye, see the sights, etc etc are all worth doing. If you're into the touristy things get a pass for a tour bus and hop on and off as and when during the day. You'll learn lots about the city that way.

    Email me for any further questions or post here.

    London is fab for seeing cars, although the rarest car i've seen on the road (i've seen a McLaren F1 in a showroom) is the F40 and i saw that driving on a country road into my village of population: 600!!!!

    Serious drool moment!
