Try the ‘posh down South’ life­style

Yorkshire Post - Motoring - - NEWS -

WHILE it is un­doubt­edly not al­ways Grim Up North there is al­ways a chance to ex­pe­ri­ence the Posh Down South life­style. For £195 you can at­tend Boo­dles Ladies’ Day on Septem­ber 6 at Sa­lon Privé’s con­cours d’el­e­gance at Syon Park – or £225 to watch judg­ing the fol­low­ing day. Or £295 for the Di­a­mond Ju­bilee Ball on the evening of the 6th. A ta­ble for 20 is of­fered at the nondis­counted price of £2,950 – all prices sub­ject to VAT. That does in­clude Cham­pagne (Pom­mery), lob­ster for lunch and af­ter­noon tea in the grounds of the Duke of Northum­ber­land’s Lon­don seat. Oh, there will be plenty of cars to look at, too. Bent­ley is show­ing its fastest pro­duc­tion car to date, the 205mph Con­ti­nen­tal GT Speed. The show’s chief judge, Bent­ley brand am­bas­sador and renowned long-dis­tance racer Derek Bell, said: “Hav­ing driven the car at full tilt and poured over it in de­tail I can em­phat­i­cally con­firm that it is one of the most im­pres­sive pieces of British engi­neer­ing and crafts­man­ship of 2012.”
