It was good to see so many of you at our May Club night – 25 people altogether. It was clear that everyone is looking forward to the prospect of warmer weather and the opportunity to use our cars. We also welcomed two more new members. Hedley Turner and Carl Silcock.
April was a busy month with the MK Classic Tour. We had eight members acting as marshalls this year. Mike thanks everyone who supported either as a marshall or as an entrant. Once again, it was a great success with well over £12,000 raised for the Little Lives Charity!
Andrew and Brian went on a road trip to the Isle of Man and to Donington. 25-30 April. It was a great trip, driving the TT course, watching Manx Classic Events, visiting the Manx Motor Museum and attending the Donington Historic on the way home. I highly recommend it.
May 14th Club Event – Pub Trawl This will be a fun day out for drivers and navigators. It’s a simple case of planning the most efficient route through the countryside, finding various objectives and then arriving at our planned finish point for lunch. All you need are simple navigating skills, safe drivers and a sense of humour. In order to get us away from familiar roads the plan is to use the Hare and Hounds at Old Warden.
