The Ace Café has always been used for meets of some kind or
the other since it was first built back in 1938, bombed
during the war, then rebuilt again it became home for bikers
to meet from around the country. These bike meets still
happen today but for the first Tuesday of every month is
Japanese car night.
Being a bit of a fan of the Jap motors I thought it would be
a good idea to grab some of the MR Team and head on up
there. After an eventful drive in trying to find the place
(don’t go the South Circular way there!) we finally arrived
at nearly half nine. The meet starts at half seven so we
turned up with everything well underway. The car park was
packed solid and cars were parked down the road too. There
is a good atmosphere about with people chatting and taking a
lot of interest in the cars… even mine!
The meet could of done with some lights outside and a few
more people, but if you’ve never been before it’s worth the
event. Try to get there before we did though because people
started to leave by half ten.
