Worth a visit just to see a wall to wall display of Bentleys, from pre-war to specials to Conti GTs......

Includes Bentley only races and Morgan Challenge. Also possible CMMC involvement.

Looking forward to this Meeting, my favourite of the year. A truly friendly, relaxed, informal atmosphere. Lots of Bentleys as you would expect, Fiscar, Morgan Aero Challenge, and much more, and some fascinating machinery in the paddock.
The perfect antidote to the hassle, and crowds of the Classic.

If you are competing let us know and we will try to get a snap or two.

Cheers,

Bauble.

Thought as I’ll now be at the meeting it would be a good idea to find a timetable, but........ Regardless, it will be a very early start.

Much of the charm of the meeting is it's lack of sophistication, glitz and glamour, just an old fashioned club event. Back in the fifties a group of us lads would cycle up from North London to this and similar meetings, and eagerly buy a programme to what was on and who was racing. We might not have gone if we knew what was in store before hand. Better to travel hopefully than arrive.

Out in a Morgan, Mike?

Yes, a red one... As I’ve bored everyone by telling previously, my first visit to this event was as riding mechanic to Jack Sears in his amazing 8 litre ‘Forrest Lycett’ Bentley Special. It was a fantastic early morning trip in August sunshine, and will never be forgotten... The event is everything you say, Bob, but with the added ‘ecentricity’ that only clubs like BDC and VSCC can produce!

Well that narrows it down a bit.

Same car as last year, and in the TT again. Would like to win the new ‘Pushrod Trophy’ class for the owner......

Lovely old fashioned meeting. Will be there with FISCAR who have a reasonable grid of interesting cars boosted with some pre 64 cars. Hope to catch up with you Bob, John & Mike.

Was it Geoffrey Palmer in Reggie Perrin that coined the phrase ‘Bit of a cock up on the organisational front?’

That’s what we’ve got this weekend. Thought the silence from Race organiser was a bid odd, but turns out they couldn’t find my emailed entry. After a while they confirmed they had it but I’m second reserve.

40 entries so I can live with that. I’m sure a couple of old bags of bolts will either fail to show or expire in Q- not that I would wish the latter on any fellow competitor.....

Done as much as I can, just got to wait now to see if I make off the reserve list and into the race.

P6 o/a, P2 in Techniques Trophy and first pushrod Morgan......

Some very odd grids in the later qualifying sessions, as is the norm for this meeting.
