Red face Help R35-ers!

Hey guys,

I'm in a bit of a sticky situation.. and I am calling all R35 GTR owners!
(sorry if this is in the wrong location - mods feel free to move/delete!)

My brother is getting married and he has put me in charge of transport.
The wedding is near Gatwick on 9th May 2015.

The struggle I have is that I cannot seem to find a GTR rental place that doesn't rape me in cost!
The GTR is only needed between 1pm - 5pm... of which entry will be half hour, and exit will be half hour.
All the quotes I get says minimum 3 days (over the weekend) which works over £2000!

My question is... are there any fellow GTR owners (I only have an R32 GTR - R34 GTR on the way) that is around the area and willing to help in making my brothers entry to the wedding like his dream!?

Of course I can pay some amount - I just didn't want to spend £2000 for 4 hours for the GTR!

Help!

Thank you in advance for any help/support!

Regards,
Raj

I would have helped you out, but I'm in Italy then.

Why not make it worth while for the drivers, organise a route around the Surrey hills, pick-up of the groom on the way, drop off at the venue, pub lunch for the drivers before pick-up in the the afternoon with some photos of the lovely bridesmaids thrown in.

Make it an event and I'm sure you'll get several turn up?

This sounds like a mega plan - but I think a bit too much for me to sort out considering the stuff I need to sort out for the wedding and I don't know that area! Id have to plan an epic route.
