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 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, 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.
Saturday 7th December - Scalextric Challenge
Come along for madness and mayhem at our annual scalextric challenge - each year we're hoping for a glimmer of skill and driving technique amongst our competitors, but to date little sign of improvement. Maybe this year will be different...
Bacon rolls, mince pies and other goodies from 9:30, racing and crashes from 10am. All welcome!
Saturday 4th January - NO breakfast club
Please note we will NOT be running a breakfast club in January.
Saturday 1st February - producing the perfect coffee
Coffee, we all crave a good cup of coffee. The key to a really good cup of coffee can be summed up in one word: freshness. So, naturally, it’s critical to use premium ingredients: the best quality freshly roasted, freshly ground beans.
Bella Barista is a major player in the UK coffee market and we're delighted they'll be with us at our February Breakfast Club to talk about their work sourcing and testing the highest quality coffee beans from all over the world. Their goal? To ensure a truly superb, flavoursome cup of coffee and they'll tell us how they do this.
Saturday 7th March - oils and fuels
March is when we can start looking forward to bright sunny days...ideal for taking your treasured car for a drive, but are you sure you're using the correct oil, and what about fuel?
This month's Breakfast Club speaker is Guy Lachlan of Classic Oils who'll be discussing the various oils and fuels available and the problems of classic and modern eco fuels. He has a wealth of knowledge of classic and modern oils, the issues with higher octane fuel and the dangers of ethanol, and looks forward to sharing it with us.
