Hello All.

I am organising an informal GTG morning meet for 190E Owners or anyone fancies a look around MB world. To get the year started the date is set for Saturday February 17th at 9AM.

I have had 5 confirmed attendees on Facebook and thought it would be a good idea to see if anyone on here would like to join us. (Thanks to Sir Jack of Bronite for describing how to use a forum)

So Boring bits first, MB world are aware of the event and have given us the go ahead, and a disclaimer, I am not responsible for your driving/behaviour on the day, cars attend at owners risk - it is a PUBLIC car park. I know were a sensible bunch anyways.

Now onto the good bitÖ

Where - Mercedes-Benz World at Brooklands
Address - Brooklands Dr, Weybridge KT13 0SL
SAT NAV should lead you straight there and is very well signposted :)
Time - 9AM until early afternoon, not limited but does close at 6pm.
Phone - MB world number - 0370 400 4000

Directions to the carpark...
We have been told to park in the railway straight car park, this will have plenty of space, I have attached a map showing how to get there, but here are the instructions beginning as you drive up to MB world on Brooklands DR:

Instructions - With the track on your right and hotel on your left drive towards the MB world main building. At the round about take the first exit and stay on Brooklands drive, follow the road round to the right and take the first major left onto the old Brooklands race track. Once on here you will see the W201s parked up !

Waffle.
It is a Saturday so may be busy, to allow us to park together I have arranged it as a sort of morning meet - the meet begins at 9AM. However it is a public car park so we cannot garuntee we will all be together (but lets hope so).

Food and Drink,
Available inside MB world at a cost. Or bring your own bits.

Spare parts,
If you have any spare bits that you can bring post on the thread and see if anyone is interested in them, It is always good to save the hassle of an eBay bid war.

I have linked the Facebook event page here,
https://www.facebook.com/events/2012153125673083/
Either join on there or let me know here that you will be coming, I say its a meet for the W201 but anything with a three pointed star is welcome and will only add to the fun.

Weather looks to be good for the day so should bring out more cars, there is no shelter in this car park if it does rain, however there is plenty of room in MB world and plenty to look at

Cheers all and I hope to see you there.
Marcus

Hi Marcus,

Drat, it clashes with a trip to see my folks. But good luck with the event and I hope you all enjoy it. More than likely I'll be at the Brooklands GTG in the summer, so catch you then :)

Does that mean the babyís first car journey could be in a 190E? What an excellent way to enter the world!

All the best for the 16th.

Great day out at Mercedes-Benz World with a mixture of 190 clubs.
The facebook lot meet the forum _-welcome-_

Hopefully they are all signing up as new members and old members coming active again.

The quality of the cars was very impressive. Even the one that survived sliding into a ditch, recovered out, only to have a Land Rover plough into it..... Well done for surviving to make the journey.

Thanks to everyone who turned up today, think we hit 13/14 cars in total and what a variety there was. Engine swaps, the crash wounded and some immaculate pre facelift models. A good laugh and great way to kick off this years event calendar ! Thanks again everyone, Marcus

Well done for organising, Marcus. I was looking through the pics, thinking 'which one got smacked?' then got to the last photo. Oh heck
Fella with the bumper in his hand gives it away.

Cheers, glad you enjoyed the meet. Your car looked great and I'm a fan of the numberplate, your colour also proved to be very popular among the attendees, will be good to see it at future meets !
