Royal Ascot Limo Services..

There are few sporting venues that can match the rich heritage and history of Ascot Racecourse. Throughout the last 300 years, Royal Ascot has established itself as a national institution and the centrepiece of the British social calendar as well as being the ultimate stage for the best racehorses in the world. Over 300,000 people make the annual visit to Berkshire during Royal Ascot week, making Royal Ascot Europe's best-attended race meeting.

However, there is always a last minute rush by some to come to Ascot; to mix with royalty and watch the sport of Kings. Unfortunately, in this rush to get to Royal Ascot in style, by some, an elderly pedestrian suffered serious leg injuries when a limousine struck her close to the annual race meeting grounds.

The woman, in her 70s, was injured on a private road being used by vehicles going to and from a car park at Royal Ascot, near Watersplash Lane. She was taken to Wexham Park Hospital. A man in his 40s, held in connection with the crash, is on police bail. Police are appealing for witnesses to the incident on Friday to contact them.

Culpability for the accident has yet to be determined; was it the limo chauffer's fault? Was he driving too quickly to try and get to race on time? Or was the elderly woman not looking where she was going? On the surface it appears that as a result of the huge demand for limousines to ferry passengers to and from the race meeting some poor punter may indeed hired a dodgy limo and chauffer as a last minute resort.

Therefore, you should always book your limo in advance and use a reputable operator.
