Smart - Destination Brooklands

On Sat K and I went to 'Smart - Destination Brooklands', a replacement for the old London to Brighton run. We met at the local dealers for breakfast and to see the new For2 for the first time. We then convoyed along the M25 to Brooklands with 30 or so other Smarts. Once there we joined around 1,000 other Smart cars. The actual event itself was not great - the queues for driving the new car were over an hour long and there was not an aweful lot to do. Anyway, we had a nice lunch in the Gull-Wing restaurant, wandered around some static displays and eventually left after 3 hours or so. Still, it was fun to be a part of it.

BTW - we should have won the competition for dirtiest Smart. We must have been the *only* car that was not clean - the shame!
