Living on the South coast has its advantages if you’re interested in the seaside and all that, but for car events it’s another story… I rarely have the opportunity to frequent decent car meets without having to travel long distances, which means a super late drive home. However, recently a lot of people have been urging me to make the trip to Homegrown, a german-only meet held every last Friday of the month at Beaconsfield Services on the M40. Coincidently, Beaconsfield is actually my home town, but I now live 1hr45mins away – damn! Anyway, my friend Nick was planning to make the drive up so luckily I managed to jump in with him. We arrived in Beaconsfield at about 8pm to discover one side of the services completely taken over by German cars, including lots of recognisable faces. An evening with friends, food, and some of the South’s best cars, a good Friday night was on the cards. Here’s some of my highlights…

Well, I’m glad I finally had the chance to head up to Homegrown… I thought it was pretty busy, even though I was told that it was actually quieter than usual, so it looks like I’ll definitely have to try and get back up there next month and catch up with everyone. It’s no doubt the biggest German meet down south for quality cars, so if you’ve never been and live relatively near, make sure you check it out, every last Friday of the month.
