Maserati Club

This enthusiastic club for owners and believers in the cars from Modena covers all parts of the world and encompasses cars from 1930 to the present day with a lot of activity and encouragement for owners of the exotica of today.  The Club’s quarterly magazine Trident recently received a well justified award for being the best publication of its type.

Porsche Club Great Britain

The Club is expanding rapidly (a 30% increase in members in 1980) and a recent EGM voted to make it a Limited Company. In order to aviod clashing with Porsche Cars GB Ltd the decision was taken to register the Club under the name “Gmund Heritage Ltd” under which name the Club’s affairs will be conducted, though it will still be operated for members as the Porsche Club Great Britain. The Club is nationwide and has regular regional meetings in the North West, North East and South East of England. Executive Secretary is Michael Cotton at the Reading base of Porsche Cars, in Richfield Avenue.

The Riley Register

This quarterly Bulletin of the Riley Register, edited by Tony Bird, achieved its 100th issue with the December 1980 publication. Needless to say it was a bumper issue full of interest to Riley owners, whether they are racing people, concours people, rebuilders or restorers, or special builders. We liked the quote overheard at their Coventry rally last year. “. . of the 12 examples of the model produced by the Factory, only 17 are known to have survived.”

750 Motor Club

The Annual Awards presentation of the original “low cost racing club” takes place at the Skyway Hotel at London Airport on February 14th with the winners of the Reliant 750 Formula, the Formula 1300, Formula 4, Formula Vee and Austin 7 championship collecting their awards. The club provides a full season of amateur racing for all these categories, as well as promoting many other sporting and social activities. Their big event is the annual Six Hour Relay Race named in memory of Holland Birkett, the Club’s founder Captain.

The Monoposto Racing Club

. . . will enjoy sponsorship for the fifth year running, from Berac (Varley Batteries) Ltd in the form of start-money for all competitors in the Monoposto Championship. The club provides motor racing in the Grand Prix style for club enthusiasts, specifically discouraging works and professionally sponsored drivers and entrants. The accent is on “home-tuning-and-building” and the pushrod overhead valve engines must not exceed 1,600 c.c. and the chassis must be at least five years old if commercially constructed. No overhead camshaft engines are permitted. Races are held at all the regular circuits from Aintree and Cadwell Park to Thruxton and Castle Coombe.
