    We've arranged for an interesting next club meet.

    Stapletons, the national tyre suppliers for all UK Honda dealers, in association with Pirelli, will be holding a special presentation evening. There will be technical Q&A discussion on alignment and suspension geometry; talks from Pirelli about tread patterns, tyre behaviour, and some of their products; as well as a segment on the effects of the new EU tyre regulations.

    Pirelli will be supplying a full racing simulator, for a bit of club competition. We'll be going head to head shooting for the best lap times, with prizes up for grabs. Food and drinks will also be provided.

    The club event will be held at STS Tyre Pros, one of Stapletons retail stores, store manager Chris will be our host.

    STS Tyre Pros
    Unit 2, McDonald Way

    The event itself will be beginning at 7pm, and as it's a Thursday evening, I understand that will be a problem for some with travel time after finishing work but you can come along and join in whenever you can make it. We'll be gathering from around 6pm for those who are able to come earlier and have more of a meet and greet, with a quick photography session of all our cars. We should be finished by 9pm, though I'm sure some will gather for a bit longer to chat and gossip.

    I know some of you will be too far afield to make it with work the next morning, but whoever can - let's get ourselves together for another great bash like our last spectacular club event at Holdcroft Honda. Confirmed so far:

    @DeviateDefiant
    @Ichiban
    @SpeedyGee
    @Nighthawk

    We're set for 10-20 people, though I'm assured they can cater for more if need be depending on interest.

    Out from behind your monitors, let's make this a great club night!

    Oooooooo

    It is a bit of a drive for me (especially on a work night), but I'll try and make it. Do I need to let you know for certain whether I'll be there or not ?

    No that's fine mate, we don't need to let them know exact numbers, just a loose estimate of what to expect :Smile: Be great if you can make it.

    Facebook says 1800 hours??

    Any idea how long it is going to be going on for? There is loads of parking around as it borders an industrial estate so at that time, parking will be plentiful and well away from the main road. Got an early start (6 am) the next morning so might not be able to stay too long.

    Schedule checked...and it's good news! I'm in :Smile:

    I'll try to remember to bring the speaker rings for the 8th Generation that I've still got for sale. If there are other 8th Generation owners there they can have them for a tenner as no postage required!

    Looking forward to this :BooYeah:
