There seems to be some question over the Newark September dates.
I have heard that it clashes with Goodwood Revival and has been changed to 25th/26th July according to Complete Kit car magazine.

That's good news. Gets it away from the 2020 RHOCaR End of Season Bash.

Default Castle Combe Classic.

Lots of drool-worthy machinery in attendance yesterday. This gem was powered by a straight six two litre Bristol engine, if you look carefully you can see that the bell housing has been given the full Emmental treatment. It had me wondering if I should've had the Monaco sprayed Silver...............





Amongst punters' cars was this Frazer-Nash BMW which had one of the nicest dashboards I've ever seen. Beautiful!





A great day out.

Regards, Mick

Next Sunday, 13th is the last Prescott Breakfast Meeting of the year. Hope the weather is kind, this time last year it was still warm and sunny !

Also next Sunday is the Malvern Classic Car Show at the Three Counties show ground. Usually well attended and a reasonable auto jumble.

The XKEC meet at Prescott sounds good to me. Do you know what time it runs from/to? I'm guessing that breakfast meet means early.

Bromyard Speed Festival Breakfast Club meetings have been entered on their website.
Basically the last Sunday of the month right through the year starting January.

Also, Chataux Impney in Droitwich are hosting a new year bash on the morning of the 12th January. Pre entry required because space is limited to 500 cars, lol ! Pre entry also entitles you to a complimentary bacon bap !

Looks like Stoneleigh is postponed until later in the year. Dates not arranged yet as things are still developing of course.

Not unexpected in the current situation.... On the bright side it gives us more time to get our cars ready for when it does happen!

Already on it.

I'll be working at home from Monday. I usually work Monday to Wednesday 8am to 4pm, but I'm doing 7:30am until noon Monday to Friday while I'm home working so I can spend every afternoon in the garage getting on with my Speedster.

The ACO still haven't mentioned any change to the running of the Le Mans Classic due to be held in July.
The 24 hour race set for June is postponed until September though. I'll be very surprised if there aren't further amendments.
In true French fashion the ACO website says, " Our priority is to maintain the race calendar " !! No mention of public health !
