Yorkshire Section

Report: Our meeting September 11

 

Following on from our first joint meeting earlier in the year, The Reindeer at Sandtoft was once again the venue for the second of our Sections' joint meetings for 2018.

Report: Yorkshire Section Pick'n'Mix Weekend

 

This, we thought, was something that little bit different in an event lasting all weekend but broken down into a number of separate happenings. As it happens, it all worked out rather well so is the kind of thing that we may well repeat in the coming year.

Report: Breakfast at The Oil Can Cafe

 

Yorkshire Section members enjoy a good breakfast so this return visit to The Oil Can Cafe at The Carding Shed in Holmfirth turned out to be one of our better ideas. Since our last visit in March, a lot has changed; not least being the location of the Cafe that's gone to a completely new spot at Washpitt Mills; right in the heart of The Last of the Summer Wine country. Indeed, a totourist bus bearing the name of the BBC's comedy show was seen early doors driving right past the Carding Shed's new premises.

Spettacolo Sportivo at Zandvoort

 

A number of Yorkshire Section members and their cars travelled over the North Sea with P&O Ferries out of Hull Port to attend and partcipate in The Dutch Alfa Club's premier annual event at Zandvoort Circuit in The Netherlands.

There'll be a full report and pictures appearing here shortly.

 

Forza Paul!
Report: Yorkshire Speed Hillclimb (Nat B)
 
Our very own Paul Jaggard was in the running to defend his track record in Class 22 Alfa Romeo Cars. Paul had been piloting a Giulia with some success in this Class in recent years but now competes in an Alfa Romeo GTA 3.2 which, as he reported previously, had been driving very well in Sprints and Track Days prior to this event.
 
Some of the brave souls who toughed it out at Ripon
Report: Ripon Classic Car Gathering
 
The ever-popular Ripon Classic Car Gathering presented by The Ripon Old Cars Club, has been running for many years and has become established on the calendar. As per usual, we took part in this year's event which I'm afraid turned out to be a complete and utter washout! This was a great shame for the organisers and indeed for us as a Section as we had near enough a full house of exhibitors on our stand who all got absolutely drenched for their troubles!
 
Report: Our July Section meeting
 
Our Section's Annual General Meeting was held at our usual meeting place at The Bay Horse in Green Hammerton on July 17. The venue was packed and attracted a large number of cars including a Montreal. 
 
Report: Breakfast meeting at The Waterwheel Tearooms
 
Our Section's Breakfast Meetings are always popular and very well-attended so we organised another one! The venue we chose this time round was and is pretty special.
 
Allan Marshall at The Humber Car Museum

Report: Visit to Humber Car Museum in Hull

 

Humber-lievable! This museum houses the world's largest and best preserved collection of these superb vehicles, enthusiast Allan Marshall having assembled and restored twenty-six Humbers, from Pullmans and Super Snipes to the more modern Sceptres and Imperials over many years. It's probably just as well that Allan keeps his collection in a remote location away from home as he's told his wife that he only has the six!
