- Tue 12/7/2016: Annual General Meeting
The Sutton and Cheam Motor Club AGM needs you. (If you’re a member…)
Motorsport is going through major changes. Our sport’s future depends on all of us.
The Annual General Meeting this year is being held at the traditional club HQ at Downs Lawn Tennis Club, SM2 6HU on Tuesday 12th July from 8:00pm. AGM information will be sent out via post and email. Changes this year mean that we can also accept proxy postal votes, so hopefully more of you will be able to join in with the AGM process.
We want to keep running the best events, and all the members are an important part of making sure we meet our legal commitments so that we can continue to do so. When you receive the AGM documentation, please read it and respond. Preferably turn up on the 12th and let us know what you think. Your input will be much appreciated.
The 20th, yes, 20th, Abingdon CAR-nival weekend took place on the 4th and 5th June this year. Over the past 19 years the event has raised over £250,000 for charitable causes, including the local charity ‘Friends of Stowford House‘ and the Army Benevolent Fund. This year we are also supporting needs even closer to home, The Dalton Barracks Soldiers Social Welfare Fund.
140 sprinters and 100 rally cars competed in the Abingdon Car-nival on the 4th and 5th June. The weather could not have been better, with light cloud on Saturday and bright, spectator-singeing sunshine all day Sunday. Rally results were live on-line and the complete set of results for the Autosolo, double-Sprint and Rally are over on the dedicated web site at http://www.abingdoncarnival.com.
Many thanks to all those who took part, especially for keeping mostly to the black stuff, allowing the event to run smoothly.
A very special thanks to the huge team of volunteers that made it all possible.
From 1pm Sunday, SCMC will be visiting the National Hot Rods at Aldershot. Sunday features the 1300cc Stock Cars, Banger racing and a World Championship qualifying round for the National Hot Rods, the fastest cars on the oval track. More like full circuit cars, but in a confined space, racing centimetres apart. See you there from 1pm Sunday 15th May at Aldershot Raceway, Claycart Road, Aldershot, GU11 1SQ.
Yes, it’s here again already… Racing, rallying, classic and modern cars and a free barbecue. We’re looking forward to an evening of interesting cars and great food. See you there?
Once again Guildford Tyres opens its depot for an exhibition of all things motoring. Chris and the team will be firing up the barbecue with locally sourced sausages and burgers. Food and drinks are on the house (whilst stock lasts). All members and non-members are welcome. Bring along an interesting car, or just come along and join us, chat to the owners, and see the display.
Tell us you’ll be there and what you’ll bring (if anything) at Facebook ICN 2016
Last year we had rally, race, sprint, hillclimb, classic and modern cars, from a Model T Ford, plus Drift, Rally, Sprint, Race, Classic and Supercars, plus one huge Unimog, and everything in between.
We’re promising to be a bit more organised with the parking this time, having been a bit overwhelmed by the response last year.
Tesla are promising to bring the new P90D with ‘Ludicrous’ mode switched on this time. The acceleration of the P85D was staggering, can’t wait to see what the new is like.
We’re looking forward to a great evening of interesting cars and great food. See you there?
