On July 8th, Stratstone will be hosting Car Café at the famous Ace Café road-side diner. Previously, the successful meet has been held in Hull, Nottingham and Wilmslow. There are a limited number of spaces at Ace Café, meaning entry will be on a first come, first serve, basis.

There are already two incredible cars confirmed for the meet; an Aston Martin Vanquish S and DB11.

If you have a car that you'd like to show, make sure to be there early! The London Car Café event starts at 8am and will finish at 10am. There will be free tea and coffee for attendees with breakfast available to buy.

Entry is completely free and if you'd like to share with us what car you're thinking of bringing, just visit our Facebook page.

A Bugatti Veyron SS, Aston Martin DB5, Porsche 911 R, Ferrari F12 and Nissan Skyline R34 GTR have been displayed at Car Café events this year. Stratstone is now taking the meet to Ace Café London, a regular haunt for car and bike enthusiasts.

Ace Café, located in Stonebridge, London, used to be a transport café which was redeveloped into an entertainment venue and reopened in 1997.

The café originally became popular with motorcyclists as it was open 24 hours a day. Huge motorbike clubs like the 59 Club, Rockers and Ton Up Boys frequented the Ace Café in the 1950s. Several enthusiast groups and rock bands established themselves there too.

Unfortunately, the Ace Café was forced to close in 1969 due to the opening of Scratchwood Services at the southern end of the M1. However, in 1994 Mark Wilsmore, original 59 Club members, organised a reunion which attracted 12,000 people.

 It was clear at that point that the Ace Café (open Ace Café website in new tab) was too well-loved to stay as services and it was re-opened in 1997, with a complete refurbishment by 2001.

Now, the Ace Café events attract motorcyclist enthusiasts from all over the world, as well as having a full calendar for live music and even weddings.
