Heavy rain gave way to sunshine in time for the 750 Club’s meeting at Ashdown Park Hotel on March 2nd. An excellent number of cars attended and lunch was a revival of pre-war motoring fraternising, with absorbing gossip and an atmosphere of avid enthusiasm the order of the day. Amongst those present were:— Phil Hunter and fiancée in a Morris Eight saloon; Douglas Tubbs in his D.K.W.; H. L. Biggs in his red Fiat 500; Brymer in his Riley “Gamecock,” which later broke its contact-breaker spring and holed its fuel tank; Birkett and Mrs. Birkett in a rather special Austin Seven saloon; Gordon Woods with his beautiful Frazer-Nash; a new member with a Morris Eight four-seater; Capt. Noon’s “Nippy” Austin Seven, which has a standard engine endowed with an “Ulster” head, 8 to l compression-ratio, and down-draught carburetter, extra instruments, William’s braking and Michelin Extra-Low-Pressure rear boots; Boddy, wet through but triumphant, with his 1924 Gwynne Eight; Jenkinson and his Scuderia in an M.G. Magnette, and a sports four-seater Austin Seven.
