I'd like to know what you think, gentlemen.  Should I remove the ones with neither a name nor a picture to give them another chance?

Added...  though the picture is almost 20 years old, it's the only e-pic I have of myself.

If there is no name, yes, remove them.

My wife and a couple friends are trying to drag me to London in February. I'm the only one of the four of us who hasn't been there yet. I notice Stuart Bartosiak and Andi Cole live fairly close. I'm wondering if they -- or anyone else for that matter! -- have any suggestions for sites to see, places to stay/eat, and pubs. I've tried looking for some racing related places to visit, but can't seem to find anything closer than Silverstone. Any suggestions would be heartily appreciated. :)

Jim, as far as I'm concerned no trip to the UK would be complete without a visit to the Donington Museum. If I ever get there, it will be the first stop (Germany and the 'Ring come first, though  :P ) The greatest collection of single-seat racecars in the world. http://www.donington....com/index.html

Jim, probably the closest to London would be Brooklands Brooklands

But there are several circuits such as Brands Hatch not far away. Brands Hatch

Not sure if there is anything left at Crystal Palace for the racing enthusiast though. Crystal Palace

As for eating, nearly every other shop has a coffee bar or restaurant if it isn't one itself  :)

A good place to start for somewhere to stay would be here Tourist board

Cheers.

Andi.

Just to add to Andi's list I would say Goodwood http://www.goodwood.co.uk/ would be worth visiting

Also the national motor museum which has everything from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang to 2007 Supercars.  It's in the new forest which is just outside London and is a beautiful area in itself.

http://www.beaulieu....ntroduction.cfm

Hard to recommend bars, resteraunts etc as there are so many to chose from but there are many excellent ones so it's hard to go wrong.  Just pick up a copy of 'Time Out' magazine when you're here as it's the Londoners guide to being out and about and always stuffed full of great recommendations.

For non car related stuff it's hard to go wrong with the Natural History Museum.  The science museum is great fun and also Buck Palace is worth a visit (i was dragged round there by the missus and ended up being blown away!)  It's also quite fun just to generally wander round - The Embankment (for the river, London Eye, St Pauls, Tate Modern, Tower Bridge, Tower of London etc)  Park Lane (This is where all the car manufacturers have their flagship showrooms).  Oxford Street and Tottenham court road (for the shopping). Soho and Chinatown (for food and strippers :P)), Leicester Square and the West end are really buzzing at night. And don't forget a trip to Harrods in Knightsbridge where you can pay 10quid for a box of English teabags :P)

:thumbup: Thanks for all the suggestions and links, Andi, David, Darren, and Trevor! :clap: Donnington is definitely high on the list for me ... but not for anyone else in the group. :blues: ... I know. I know. What kinds of "friends" are these, anyway!?!?! Donnington might be a bit far to drag the rest of them on this trip. However, I'm already planning a second visit that focuses on Scotch whiskey and racing throughout the UK! :punk:

The National Motor Museum looks doable; and I'll see how I can sneak in Goodwood, Brooklands, Brands, and Crystal. "Oh, look what's over here! Isn't that a coincidence." ;) All those sites that Darren mentioned are on everyone's list and should be included this time. I'm also hoping to hit some rock-n-roll tours, as well.
