The club provides a focus for motoring enthusiasts in the area. Throughout the year we offer a wide range of activities for our members; monthly club meetings covering a range of topics: quizzes, motoring films, navigational tuition and exercises, classic car displays, a skittles match and a “walking” rally. We have also organised classic car runs, navigational rallies, visits to places of motoring and general interest.

Club meetings are usually held on the last Thursday evening of the month, at The Raven Hotel, Station Road, Hook, RG27 9HS (OS Map Reference 186/725540) where a very nice room has been made available to us. We welcome new, or prospective, members to our meetings. The Raven can offer car parking, a bar and restaurant. If you are interested please phone the organiser for details.

Forthcoming events include Peking to Paris Endurance Rally on Thursday, September 25. A competitor in this prestigious and gruelling event will be giving us an illustrated talk about his experiences on this rally in 2O13, when he competed in his Volvo Amazon (circa 1970). This will be the first of our winter meetings at The Raven. For more information, contact Bill Bonney on 0118 969 7591 or
