Wednesday 3 February
Noggin N Natter
Venue, The Waterloo Bar & Grill, Waterloo Quay
Time: 5.30pm for 6.00pm
For our first N&N of the year we have a presentation from Racetech who will be bringing with them a couple of their race seats that they make and export all around the world so it should be quite interesting. I believe also that they were making seats for Dodge Vipers here. This promises to be a great evening.

Sunday 14 Feb
British Car Day,
This is a major day in our annual calendar. Last year we had around 40 cars lined up in front of the marquee and this year we’d like to do even better. It’s a great day out and you will see some amazing cars lined up around the park, so bring a picnic and enjoy the day. Food and coffee vendors will be available. Venue is Trentham Park and the park opens to the public at 10.00am. We normally start work on getting the marquee erected and the cars lined up from around 9.00am so we are keen to get a few members there early to help with setup. NOTE: This year we will be running a concours in conjunction with British Car Day. Points from this will count towards the annual awards. Dean Gray will be running the Concours and will be distributing entry forms on the day. More details can be found HERE
