Club News

 

This year the 2024 Donington Historic Festival takes place on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th of May.
It's a fantastic weekend of racing early in the season, featuring at least seven decades of motorsport in just two days!!

This ranges from pre-war "Mad Jack" action all the way to touring cars from the mid 80s.

The club has registered for a limited number of infield display parking slots, which also gets you a fantastic discount for the event.

Admission for the car+ driver is £13 for either Sat or Sun or £21 for both days

 

Club member Finn Courtney has kindly volunteered to organise the club display at this event

 

Tickets can be booked via the link below or with the QR code/link on the poster, using the club code: 2829

Club National Event 2022

The Silverstone Classis event will now double up as the club national event for 2022.


Details of the event can be found within the advert. There is a booking code to be used as shown on the advert.

On the Friday 26th, there will be a lap of the circuit at lunchtime for X1/9s at the show. So, if you're booked in you can do a lap of the circuit!

Juliet Quarmby, our illustrious secretary, will be the point of contact for coordinating the event. However, it would be good to have help over the weekend if possible.

UPDATE:

We have had a further update from the venue, due to the importance of this event registrations are being left open as long as possible, please see the comment below:

"Although the display areas have now been mapped out, we do have a limited amount of capacity, so we are keeping the bookings open - subject to availability - to enable as many club members as possible to be part of the event this year."

 

It is with great sadness that club has to transmit the news that Bob Spencer has sadly passed away at the age of 92.

Bob was one of the founding members of the club and will be sadly missed by all. Our thoughts and condolences go out to his family.

 
 
 

 

To commemorate this historic year for the X1/9, we have commissioned a T-shirt and hoodie, available in black with a specially designed logo.
T-shirts are £20 and hoodies £26.
They are available to collect at the Silverstone Classic or free postage after the weekend.
