Porsche Club GB

Some of the one-make clubs produce magazines of exceptionally high standards, one such being the Porsche Post. Printed in black and white on art-paper, between card covers, this publication runs to 80 pages (of which 28 are advertisements). Articles range from the historical to the frivolous, from competition reports to technical matters and cover the whole range of Porsche models. The Spring issue for this year contained a particularly interesting piece on the whys and wherefores behind the turbocharged competition and road cars, some useful tips on servicing the 911 and an outline of the thinking behind Porsche’s 4-wheel drive type 597 cross country vehicle of the mid-1950s.

Aston Martin Owners Club

Another high class one-make magazine is the AMOC’s Quarterly, produced in A4 size format, on art paper and with a full colour cover, Quarterly for Spring 1981 makes a good read for anyone interested in motorsport, although obviously the material is biased heavily towards the products of Aston Martin. Of particular interest to readers of Motor Sport will be the fine tribute to Sammy Davis, a past president of the club. The AMOC has always been a competition oriented organisation, the high point of their competition year being the St. John Horsfall race meeting at Silverstone. This year’s Horsfall, on June 27th, features the second round of the Lloyds and Scottish Historic Car Championship as well as rounds of the Seldon Classic Sports Car Championship, the Willhire Special GT Championship and the Post-Historic Road Sports Championship as well as one of the exciting Robin Hamilton Inter Marque Challenge races.

TR Register

The magazine of the TR Register, TRaction, does not compete with the polished, and very expensive, productions of the Porsche and Aston Martin Clubs, but contains a wealth of useful information for owners of the proper TR’s (howls of disapproval from TR7 drivers). The Spring edition carried a fascinating article on the structure of the club (which operates very much on a “by the members, for the members” basis) and on how the records are being computerised — something which many clubs must have thought about, but few actually done.

Triumph Sports Six Club

Founded less than 4 years ago, this club caters for aficionados of Herald, Vitesse, Spitfire and GT 6 cars as well as accepting Bond Equipe, Amphicar and Triumph based Special owners. Membership currently stands at 1,400, there are monthly newsletters, the usual social events and spares schemes. Secretary is Steve Willis, 86 Mount Grace Road, Potters Bar, Herts, EN6 1QY.

Of the sixty plus club magazines and newsletters which landed in the Motor Sport offices last month, only three were from regional organisations the remainder being from one-make and other specialist bodies: we would be pleased to hear from some of the smaller clubs!
