    This special final GTROC London Meet is to celebrate the life of one of our Lifetime Members – Daniel Short; who unexpectedly moved on to the next life on Christmas Day morning last year. As per every final London meet of the year, we will once be raising money for charity which this year is the British Heart Foundation at the wish of Daniels Family & partner Tara“.

    The venue needs no introduction based on the old North Circular Road located right next to the new one with nearby fast road links to the M4, M25, M40 & M1. Being held late morning onwards & near to the Brent Cross Shopping Centre, you can easily drop off the wife/girlfriend/partner/mistress/boyfriend/family for retail therapy whilst you indulge your passion & hobby!

    As with all our London Meets there is also plenty of nearby off street parking available for enthusiasts to come down & be a part of things too.
