This is the automotive event you visit if you want to see the finest cars in the world, many of the vehicles on display had just returned from Pebble Beach.

After a quick wander, we were met by the tones of an almighty McLaren F1 GTR LM revving connected to a 90's laptop, that video and story is tomorrows gem.

There were two vehicles we really wanted to see, those were the Rolls Royce Sweptail and the McLaren Senna, there were 2 Senna cars and the Sweptail was in pride of place infront of the Palace, we also have a video of that too, that's Wednesday's story.

Harry's Garage was a highlight with over double the amount of cars on display, you guessed it we have a video of that too.
