The good thing about pol is its a mixture of the rough and the smooth, work in progress to seasonal show goers. So no matter what, you'll fit in.

PK, put your location on your profile :wink3

Have a look at the event link on the club website by following the 'home' link above to see lots of pics of all the different events we go to.

If you search for Pol on YouTube there's likely to still be the aerial drone footage available.

Hopefully you'll like what you see :D
I like Twin Cams.... and Single Cams

Not as such... but we're going to be organising an interesting event, including a drive, to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of the R8 if you can wait until 2019.

Of course you're welcome to suggest events, including (sedate) cruises :D

Got to remember some of us are old farts (mainly me) :mouthshut

Most, including me have to drive for 3hrs to get to an event, so not much interest in driving again for a while after that.
