    Best events to see lots of Stratos cars

    As a newbie to SEC what are the best events to attend (shows, comps, motorsport etc) to be able to view a large number of Stratos?
    Just looking to increase my knowledge / get ideas etc in advance of my STR build next year.

    Re: Best events to see lots of Stratos cars

    I was in a similar position and found that the Kit Car Show at Stoneleigh was a godsend. Thinking about it, I'm not sure I've ever seen a Stratos outside the show.

    Between the display cars on the LB and Hawk stands at the show along with at least a dozen owners cars in the Club area I was able to see a great cross section of cars. That was great for doing my own tick-box exercise about things I saw and preferred on some cars to others and ment I came away with a fairly good mental picture of how I wanted my car to look in terms of exhaust, engine, arches, lights, interior, dash, colour, graphics and other options.

    My build should be starting this month and not much has changed in my head from how I envisaged it all when I paid the deposit.

    Silverstone Classic might be a good opportunity

    Rally Legends in October. San Marino Italy. You should see a few originals plus a load of rally cars being driven in anger that you never see in the UK. If you get the chance then go. Not sure when the next outing would be, it's a while until Stoneleigh next year so your best bet is to keep an eye on the forum for anyone organising a garage day or trip out.

    Thx for the suggestions guys
    Silverstone is on my doorstep but I will be on holiday and San Remo is unlikely :-(
    Does the rally event at Castle Combe in Sept get many Stratos?

    Only 2 Hawks and an Allora at Silverstone in any case. I hope that improves.
    Rally Day at Castle Combe is probably the best chance for the this year.
    The Lombard Bath event features some replica Stratos. 20th to 22nd October.
    The 2018 (May Bank Holiday) Kit Car Show is by far the best bet.

    Pop up to Curborough 15th August I think we have 4 cars going round the sprint track, you never know I may be able to get a lift in one!

    We don't seem to get the support like years ago. the Abingdon CAR-nival used to be popular, but I don't thing a stratos has gone for a few years to that now.

    There are 4 Stratos entered at Castle Combe Rallyday this year. Not sure if I should call them "Stratos" as it might offend some !
