February Meeting Night - MOTOR SPORT NIGHT
ZOOM meeting 11 February 2021

Screen grabs by Jason Hood and John G

Our main feature on Motorsport Night was from Club Manager Nick Wright who gave us a fascinating insight into the world of Alfa Romeo F1, followed by a prize quiz on Alfa in all forms of motor racing.

I won't give everything away here as Nick may well be doing his presentation to other AROC area Sections in the near future, but suffice to say, with his daughter living out in Abu Dhabi, visiting the Grand Prix was a great additional excuse to see her and he's been over several times in the past 10 years.

Nick gave us a great view of the place by way of images and video clips, the Yas Marina area where the F1 GP is based in particular looks superb. By a string of happy coincidences he made it to race day in 2019 sharing lunch with the drivers. The behind the scenes images were great - with both drivers, Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi. It wasn't just the race day, he also got to drive the circuit in Alfa Quadrifoglios too! (Nah, not jealous either.... Ha ha!)

We followed Nick's talk with a fun "Alfa in Motorsport" quiz - our winner this time getting an impressive 9 out of 15 was Alex Pope winning a Halfords voucher. Our unlucky recipient of the infamous Booby Prize (Good old Angler's Weekly!)  was, Phil Gunn just  who needed a few more questions on Alvis's. :0)

Thanks to everyone who came along and joined in, great to see you.
