2009 Events

This provides you wilth a reminder of who we have had as guest speakers at the club and what activities had been provided for the club members in 2009.


December


This was our Christmas Party with the regular slot car racing and buffet. This proved to be as popular as ever with an excellent turnout for the racing. Thanks go to Nick Sismey for providing such a challenging race circuit and the ladies of the committee members for the food.

 The results of the racing were:


1.      Jamie Lawrence

2.      Russ Smith

3.      John Bannister

4.      Steve Rowley

Fastest lap of the evening  - Steve Rowley


November


We had an excellent turn out for the talk by Stuart Turner. Stuart entertained us with his recollections of his racing history, together with his personal opinions of the current racing scene. Stuart is a great advocate for the Motorsport Safety Fund.The raffle takings this month were passed to him as a donation to this great charity, there was £150 taken on the raffle and the club made this up to £350 in recognition of the work he has done and indeed still does with this charity.


October


We were overwhelmed at the record turnout last month, when Dennis Winsor told of the raising of the Wellington Bomber, “R for Robert” from Loch Ness.  The evening stirred memories for many of those present, and was a welcome change from our usual diet of all things racing. Thanks go to Dennis for a very informative and professional presentation.


September


Following a severe allergic reaction to a bee sting our planned speaker, John Cleland, unfortunately could not make the meeting


Phil Glew a Renault Clio driver came to our rescue at the last minute and gave us a very interesting talk about his racing experiences and how he wants to progress into Touring Cars.


Since the meeting Phil has clinched the 2009 Renault Clio Cup by winning two races at the Rockingham meeting. This means that he has won 10 out of the 18 races he run in this season. Phil is hoping to make his BTCC debut at the last meeting at Brands Hatch – October 4th.


July


Our meeting this month was actually a visit to the Romany Museum of Gordon Boswell. We had a good turn out for an excellent evening.


June


Our speaker this month was Simon Hadfield, his experiences of restoring and racing historic racing cars made for a very interesting evening.


May


We were taken into the world of club rallying in Canada by club member Roger Fountain. Roger gave a very interesting, illustrated, talk about his rallying experiences in the 1971 British Columbia Centennial Rally.


April


Pat Thomas, one of our club members who races, gave an excellent talk about his trip to Le Mans 2008 with his March Group C car. The Group C cars provided the support race to the main 24 hour event and gave Pat the opportunity to realise a dream. We had a great turnout for this meeting.


March


We had a very good, illustrated, talk from Ed McDonough of Vintage Race Car magazine about his top 110 race cars. He was very enthusiastic and covered many different models and finished with his best being an Alfa Romeo.


February


Despite a severe snow storm, 28 members and guests managed to make it to the Red Hall for the talk given by Simon Hope, Managing Director of H&H Classic Car Auctions. Simon gave an excellent presentation on the world of classic car auctions an the work that goes on behind the scenes.


January


We had a great turnout for a very good presentation given by two Chief Engineers from Lola. Bob Marston worked for Lola 1968 - 1981and Julian Cooper is the present CE. It provided a fascinating insight into some of the challenges of designing racing cars.
