After some 20 years of valiantly providing its members with a wide range of activities and interesting talks by well-known personalities, the previous committee has retired (with our grateful thanks) and has been replaced by a new one to take the Bourne Motor Racing Club into the future.
That this rearrangement been successful is reflected by a membership now numbering about 200 and with a full program for 2018 and well into 2019.
Since 1920 Bourne has been very much on the motor racing map with firstly, Raymond Mays and his Bugattis, Villiers Special, White Riley, ERAs and then later, post war, more extensively with BRMs. These activities brought many famous names to Bourne both as sponsors, drivers, engineers, designers and mechanics, many of whom still visit and hold the town in great esteem and affection.
Bourne Motor Racing Club is doing its best to see that Bourne’s racing heritage is not forgotten and their efforts show that this tradition is very much alive and well.
The Club committee aims to hold either a talk by a well-known personality or about an interesting business or a film show nearly every month of the year, apart from August, meeting at the well-equipped Bourne Corn Exchange, normally on the 2nd Thursday of the month.
Current membership costs £20 per year which the committee feels represents good value for some 11 monthly talks and usually a visit to a prominent motor racing business or collection such as that of the Rolls Royce's Heritage Trust. Perhaps you might also like to purchase a BRM DVD which we have recently made, priced at £15?
I feel very honoured to have been “part of the action”
