Thanks Gary for all the help over the last 8 years in supplying films clips & slides.

Ho ho. Must say you've aged very well if you were filming the Silver Arrows at Donington in the late '30s. Must be the magical effect of al fresco Frogeye motoring.

A reminder to those of you coming in 2 days on Saturday . The central heating has suddenly failed in all this cold weather we have electric fan heaters and it is a modern well insulated building but a very big air space .
So wrap up warm with extra clothing fleeces jumpers gloves thick socke & shoes, woolly hats just in case - if you have it all with you you can always take it off if you do get too warm. Get a hot drink as soon as you arrive.

Many thanks to all of you who attended yesterday. We did manage to get heat back on at midday and our guests Christianne Ireland and Alan Wheelans on the life and times of Innes Ireland were all superb as was Robert Cooper's comprehensive presentation on the Silver Arrows teams of Mercedes and Auto Union during the 1930s. Thanks as always to the ever brilliant support team of Jane Bill, Christine,Tom, Will, and Alex who did a wonderful job of feeding us and keeping the wheels turning even after a brief cut in power, Many thanks to all, photos to follow.

How right you are Tim it is all about the people in the audience and a whole host of new friends meeting up 3 times a year. As ever always delighted to see you and Ralph such loyal supporters coming a long way is much appreciated.

I'm looking forward now to the Jaguar day in May.

Congratulations to Tony Pashley/Ralph/Tim on a fine quiz victory, the knowledge contained within that team is so good!
Nice to see Peter Connew again, and I thought Barry would attend by sheer fact of the subject matter, Innes has such a great history in F1 in the early '60s. Good also to see the return of MCS , nice to see so many at the gathering, sorry for any that I missed, but where does the time go?

Just to second Sterling's comments. An interesting day, especially for enthusiasts of the Cat, lots of good company and of course the usual fine catering from the usual gang.
Thank you, Richard & Co.

Writing as one who attends these splendid events, but usually doesn't come in May, I'd say that there is too much else on at this time of year - by which I probably mean April onwards.
I am still impressed by the range of speakers you have managed to find for these meetings and although that must run dry sooner or later, perhaps having only two shows a year would postpone that unhappy day.
Posted 10 September 2017 - 19:46
Just to bump this thread!
Any news on the November 4th show Richard?
Posted 04 February 2018 - 18:44
Many thanks to all of you who attended yesterday details in a day or two.

It has been good fun - yes indeed 9 years already. We can only keep doing it because of such good supporters such as yourself Gary.
On Saturday John Watson, Paul Michaels and Maurice Hamiltion were just a joy to listen too. And thanks to all we raised over £4000 for Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital - many thanks to all of you who purchased auction lots or made donations - it is very much appreciated and every penny will go to them.
Posted 05 February 2018 - 14:42
Thank you Richard and 'team' for another lovely day; three erudite and witty guests who entertained and informed.
(Maurice's book, with the Cahier Archive photos, is an absolute delight. Even without the charity aspect - and having it signed - I think the book is, of itself, actually worth more than the cover price, so I'm very pleased that I bagged it!)
Posted 05 February 2018 - 15:42
A very enjoyable day. I'm still immensely proud of myself for identifying Gerry Birrell. Pity I got everything else wrong.
Posted 21 February 2018 - 07:47
The latest Rod Waller cartoon we presented to Paul Michaels (founder & owner of Hexagon Classic Cars ) John Watson and Maurice Hamilton on Sat 3rd Feb at the film show day featuring the Hexagon F1 team of the early 1970s.

Still time to book - we still have places available on Sat 5th May - just under 2 weeks away .

The Costin Nathan sports car had a centre monocoque section made from Gabon plywood and Birch wood.
This is Rod Waller's vision of how it might have been at Le Mans the year Roger took part - in reality the woodwork was hugely expensive very stiff strong and light

Many thanks Frank - you are such a good supporter and I do not think have hardly missed any of the 27 shows to date - certainly right up there with the very best attendees. A few pictures
