Date:
Tuesday 25th June

Time:
6:00pm until when everyone finally buggers off (Although the restaurant closes at 9pm)

Venue:
Boutique Hotel, Functions and Dining | The Grasshopper Inn

Menu for Food:
Dine | The Grasshopper Inn

Google Streetview for those wondering about access into the car park:
The Grasshopper Inn, Westerham Road, Westerham - Google Maps

It's a really gorgeous venue! Very picturesque, very quaint and luxurious inside! Parking for well north of 150-175+ vehicles...& essentially we can make it our own for the evening once I mentioned our projected numbers. The road is ideally suited for some sedate flybys as well to properly listen to the V8's we had at the last one!

Address:
The Grasshopper Inn
Moorhouse (A25), near Westerham
Kent, TN16 2EU

Sits LESS than 10 min south of Junction 6 of the M25!

Outside is a raised deck area with picnic tables so we can all eat out there, inside people can have a very nice sit down meal! Beautiful surroundings indoors and catering for car gatherings is something the folks there are quite used to doing.

So without further ado!

Well congratulations on passing- first time was it?

In terms of these meets - I can't complain about any of the previous ones...Umair started them last year at a smaller location, however its grown and grown and still growing now, so the venue was moved. They started with 20-30 cars and now at a good solid 50+ throughout the night.

As you can see its organised on PH- so pure petrol heads; not any of this 'scene' stuff tbh- that belongs at prept IMO. So it does look pretty different to that ford meet you posted- will be more formal in a way as its situated at a really nice English country pub with quality food and a nice area. I am meaning to build up to a similar venue for an ASN meet in the future - but need to get the first meet under my belt first :)

I've seen some amazing cars and met some great people at this meet. Ill post a few pictures up of previous events I personally took - I haven't been disappointed in any I've attended to date. I'm just hoping the weather holds out as the more sunny it is- the more super/hyper/rare cars come out.

Chris if you end up going pm me as I may pop down as its only 10 mins away from me

I'm pretty sure ill be going mate.....the only 2 meets I've missed was due to car issues :( so 'touch wood' nothing happens! I'll drop you a PM and update this thread before hand though :)

defo look like a good one

Thats pretty much a standard meet mate....

A good one in my eyes was when a 599GTO, Ferrari FF and a couple of GT3 RSs all turned up :)

South East Events Moderator
Yeah will do, but tbh chances are I'll be having a chat with some people I know- I was very disappointed with myself because I totally missed seeing a Porsche 911 997 sport classic come and go; and there pretty ****** rare 1/250 made or something like that.

I'll let you know what I'm wearing on the day because I'm not putting a name badge on :) lol

UPDATE:

So I was speaking to the organiser (Umair) the other night and it turns out there is about 90+ attending this meet now.

Met office have predicted a nice evening tomorrow - so I should be there from around 6-9pm.

I know of a few owners who will be bringing there supercars along and hopefully Lamborghini Sevenoaks brings something special again.....so it's lining up to be a good one :)

Just been told there's about 110+ attending now....must be this lovely sunshine we have at the moment that's getting more people involed :)

I'm going to be pretty hard pushed for time....finish work in a couple of hours- drive home to give the car a quick rinse, get changed and get to the place! lol

Plus phone reception is not the best at the venue....I'm aiming to be there from 6pm onwards and will have my bright blue air max 90s on, jeans, with a pink and blue jumper :rock:

A great meet last night.....

Everything from a Rover Metro to a Porsche Carrera GT turned up.....with well over 100+ cars throughout the evening.

I'll get some pictures up shortly of a pick of some of the cars :)

I think I may have saw you....but I'm not in the habit of approaching teenage boys and introducing myself to them when I have no idea on what you look like or what you was wearing! haha

Was you with another lad? I think you may have taken a picture of me whilst I was in my mates red GTR, after coming back from a little drive to show me his decat and remap to 550bhp :)

Yeah it was an experience going in my mates GTR- he knows how to drive and gave it full beans in 2nd gear from about 40mph and it was just savage!

I had a pink sweater with blue bits on it and a massive grin on my face when I came back in the GTR! lol Come over and say hi next time. I'll get some pictures up later no today as I was having issues with the internet last night :( Did you get many?
