Hollycombe Family Day

Make sure you don't miss out on our Family Day at Hollycombe Steam Collection near Liphook to which we extend an invitation to all our neighbouring Section members. It all takes place on Sunday August 30th. This is a working steam museum with fairground rides and two steam railways. All rides are included in the price of your ticket. There are also woodland gardens to walk around. Tickets at reduced prices will shortly be available via the Club website.

Auto Italia, Brooklands

Section Treasurer Barry Daborn writes;

Despite the weatherman threatening us with some rain, there was a great turnout for AutoItalia's 29th Italian Car Day taking place at Brooklands on 2nd May.

Visit to HWM

On April 18, upwards of fifteen Surrey section members enjoyed the hospitality of HWM in Walton-on-Thames. Having parked a range of classic and modern cars in front of their showroom we were offered coffee and pastries and invited to look at the current range of Alfas, Jeeps, and Aston Martins that HWM stock. In addition to the 4C, this included the Aston Martin One-77 as well as the V12 Vantage. We were also given the opportunity to have our cars professionally inspected on the ramp by HWM’s staff.

The original Italian hot hatch
“Piazza Italia” is a celebration of Italian food, wine and, most importantly, Italian cars, that has been held each Easter for the last nine years in the Sussex market town of Horsham. It culminates on Easter Monday in the display of cars in the historic town centre and a subsequent drive through the streets and a rally start line – much to the joy of spectators and drivers alike.

Section treasurer Barry Daborn writes:

I recall back in the 1950s when I was a boy, being struck by a particular racing driver whose fair hair and bow tie seemed to strike a chord. That driver was of course Mike Hawthorn and last year at one of our Section meetings someone mentioned there was a private museum devoted to him.
