The first official Cars & Coffee – Breakfast @ Topaz, in the words of one of the participants “one of the best London car meets to date!”, graced by the beautiful Torino Crea designed poster, would not have been possible without the global sponsorship of Michelin, local support provided by Topaz Detailing, and by the Hambleden Sports and Social Club.
