Fiona,

We have to be careful not to get a deluge of visitors. Depending on how many people would be interested, I think that it might have to be retricted to active SpykerOwner enthusiasts and Spyker owners.

I fully understand. I would NOT invite them for the factory tour, either... but still, it is nice to see that little boy taking pictures of exciting cars and posting them on the internet. Many examples you can find on car spotter sites!

Indeed: it's thanks to those boys that we've discovered many Spykers from around the world while sitting behind a computer

Absolutely, I wasn't refering to the factory tour at all, rather to Andreas suggestion that we need to find people in the Coventry area to look out for the new cars coming out.
Haven't even mentioned the factory tour and wouldn't, just asked in the midlands section if anyone in the coventry area have spotted any yet.....no response, the Spyker isn't a well known car in the Uk, even on Pistonheads it seems!

... that will change in the near future! There will be Aileron test mules, company demonstrators, customer cars and dealer deliveries flooding the Coventry area, I would assume. I am not sure where these cars can be tested or shown to customers at speed. Is there a race track nearby, Fiona? Would cars from Coventry be shipped from Heathrow to the rest of the world? Or which airport is the likely one? Perhaps, some assembled Ailerons will end up in Zeewolde for customer rides there...?

Another interesting question is, will the race car development stay in Zeewolde? Even for the Aileron GT2R 2012? I am not sure that makes a lot of sense, but who knows... Let's keep our eyes open, and hope for some teenage help, haha! It seems to get interesting again soon...

Actually as there aren't many English natives on this forum I wonder how many of you are familiar with the British expression to send someone to Coventry?
It means to stop speaking to someone or "give them the silent treatment".

... see here. Roots in an ancient Greek tradition!

Fiona, it's not that anyone wants to ostracise you.... we will all join you in our factory tour to CPP! But I assume you will not be able to take pictures... ... as last time!
