Just back from Ladies Day at Salon Prive 2011, writes Sarah-Jayne Harrison. Like Ascot, the women get dressed up and there's a parade lap of the concourse for the best dressed ladies of the day, but we somehow didn't qualify. So instead of posing in exotica, we took some snaps of Salon Prive 2011 for this gallery. For the last four years Salon Prive has been held at the Hurlingham Club on the banks of the Thames, but this year it's moved to a new venue: Syon Park near Chiswick. Enjoy the exotic, new and old, weird and wonderful cars in our gallery below.

Scaffolding and Venomous motive force aplenty
I thought this was supposed to be Ladies Day at Salon Prive 2011?
