It’s the last Monday in the month and it’s a Bank Holiday. A perfect recipe for an especially interesting turn-out for Porsche Night at the Ace Cafe. Time to fire-up the Yellow Peril and navigate the delights of the North Circular en-route to this world famous automotive venue.
When my friend and fellow petrol-head Arun suggested a trip up to the Ace Cafe in his wonderful Caterham 7 for the the Classic Car Night + Lotus + Midget & Sprite meeting I had no hesitation in accepting.
After the minor complication of getting my non-sylph-like frame into the tiny Caterham 7 cockpit and strapping myself into the full harness the journey up to the Ace Cafe was great (despite the early evening homeward-bound traffic). The 7 really is like a 2-seater jet-propelled skateboard – soooooo fast and responsive.
