CLUB NEWS

Club Lotus

AN UNUSUAL aspect of the Club Lotus Performance and Restoration Show is that owners will be’ able to work on their own cars under the guidance of factory experts during the two days of the event. The organisers say that the accent is on the practical side of Lotus ownership, and many firms specialising in Lotus restoration will be present. The venue is the East of England Showground at Peterborough, just off the AVM), on Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th October, from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. daily.

British Salmson Owners Club

BECAUSE of a welcome increase in activity, the BSOC inform us that it has been necessary to “diversify the administration’. As a result. they have a new “General Secretary’ to whom all correspondence and membership enquiries should be directed. He is Paul Clements, 33a Brunswick Square, Hove, Sussex BN3 IED. Tel.: 0273 770 040,

The Motor Cycling Club

THE Motor Cycling Club will run its fifth Edinburgh Trial — mostly in Derbyshire — on 2nd October 1982. The 250 competing cars and motor cycles can be seen early in the day at Dailey Dale and Findern, and in addition to the usual hills ;which include Litton Slack, Bamford Clough, and Haggs Side) will be tackling three hills which are new to the Edinburgh, and which have not been used for 30 years. The event will finish at the Haddon Hall Conference Hotel, London Road, Buxton.

The 750 MC’s Six-Hour Relay Race

THE International British Motor Show opens in Birmingham on October 23rd hut those who prefer to net cars in action instead of static on exhibition stands may care to note that the 750 MC is again running a Six-Hour Relay Race for mixed teams of cars at Silverstone on October 9th, commencing at noon, after practice from 9 a.m. This ambitious Club fixture is a continuation of the race founded by the late Holland Birkett many years ago and it provides a unique opportunity for both competitors and spectators to enjoy something different from the short races normal at most Club meetings.

We understand that the entries include teams of Austin Seven, Aston Martin, Bentley, Chevron, Jaguar, Porsche, Triumph, Vauxhall and other makes, all run and pit-controlled with the utmost amateur enthusiasm. It is an event that deserves your support and there are some interesting aspects about attending it. For example, those drivers arriving in genuine pre-war cars are to be admitted free of charge, with their passengers paying half-price. There will be a special enclosure on the approach to Copse Comer, we are told, for these cars and some cups to be won in an impromptu Concours d’Elegance. Normal admission costs £2 a head, but accompanied children go in free, and transfer to the Paddock and grandstand is also free.

So forget the bickering in Fl and support a deserving Club event! It was intended to run the race at Mallory Park in 1983 but with the rumoured closure of Mr. Webb’s circuit, plans are fluid. — W.B.
