Breakfast Club

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 7TH September - 60 years of Cars and other stuff - An addicts tale

The addict who is giving the talk, well know to many, is Guild of Motoring Writers member Roy Smith. The writer of books about Formula 1, Rallying, and his major interest  sports racing cars. Roy has owned over 50 cars and 15 motorbikes, has won several hill climb and Sprinting championships in the 1990's and raced Classic motor bikes, something he did not take up untill he was 52.

He has owned many 'boring" - his words, and interesting cars including Morgans and Porsches, and has a penchant for 'bonkers' vehicles.

He is often consulted by auction houses for historical facts, and has a wealth of stories

Our speaker, Roy, is donating one of his books in a raffle to raise funds for the East Anglian Air Ambulance charity, so come along buy a ticket and help the charity. Also if you are not a lucky winner, Veloce Publishing are offering to all visitors a discount on all their standard publications for one month. A code to claim this will be available on the day and catalogues will also be available to take away free

SATURDAY 5TH October - TO BE CONFIRMED

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.
