Held the first Saturday of every month, our Allon White Saturday Breakfast Clubs have become a popular place to catch up on all things motoring. Visitors share a sports car passion and come to chat with like-minded folk who speak car!
Each month we have a different speaker or 'workshop' to boost your knowledge, entertain you or just give you an excuse to take your car out for a drive. Past topics have included tips when buying or selling cars, valeting masterclasses, test drive days and talks on motor racing.
Bacon rolls, tea, coffee and chocolate biscuits are served from 9:30, though as it's a breakfast not a brunch club, arrive too late and the food will be finished! There's no need to book, just turn up and bring anyone who prefers to spend Saturday mornings in a garage than a garden centre!
The themes for our next meetings are:
Saturday 6th July - BLOODHOUND LSR
As our speaker, we're delighted to welcome back Allan Read to talk about Bloodhound - the landspeed record project to build a car to hit 1,000mph. Allan's a member of the Bloodhound Education Team and will cover the history of the project, the engineering, education and what's happening now at Bloodhound LSR.
Bloodhound LSR is a new venture based on the Bloodhound SSC Project and uses the Bloodhound SSC Car rescued from administration in December 2018 by Yorkshire-based businessman Ian Warhurst.
Saturday 3rd August - 'The Bentley Boys'
This month we welcome David Skillen, an engaging speaker who'll be talking about the drivers of one of the most charismatic marques in motor racing, the Bentley Motor Racing Team of the 1920s. The men-about-town who drove these magnificent cars are recognised as the prototype playboys, a group of chaps who drove hard and partied harder and their exploits on and off the track led to their name "The Bentley Boys". David will talk about how the Bentley Boys came to dominate racing, especially at Le Mans.
SATURDAY 7TH September - 100th anniversary OPen Day
No ordinary Breakfast Club is planned for September, but rather a full blown 'Open Day' to celebrate our 100th Anniversary - an achievement of which we're rather proud! Full details to follow.
SATURDAY 5TH October - TO BE CONFIRMED
Watch this space for details of the October Breakfast Club...
Saturday 2nd November - 'Rivers' Fletcher
The talk at this month’s Breakfast Club is about racing driver, ‘Rivers’ Fletcher. It's given by his son, Jeremy Rivers-Fletcher, an entertaining speaker and racing driver. Alec Francis Rivers-Fletcher, known as ‘Rivers’ was our last link with the Bentley Boys of 1920s. After his apprenticeship under WO Bentley himself, he had successes at the wheel of his GP Bugatti and MGA, and travelled the world as a journalist and broadcaster from the 30s to the 60s reporting on famous drivers of the time such as Malcolm Campbell, Graham Hill and Stirling Moss.
