    Stuck was a very entertaining guest speaker during motor week last year
    Was in clubhouse on way into gym but had to take a snap or two

    The motoring committee and team do a great job with interesting display cars changing each week or sometimes several times a week

    Hi Chuck,

    We members are treated to an ever changing array of vehicles that are brought up the ramp to the rotunda -- changed every week. A long tradition. They are pretty slick at making the changeover in the early hours. This is in the heart of central London.

    I get along to the clubhouse quite often during the week but don't often remember take photos. Here are a few captured on a website but not all would've been on my top list.

    Probably not the leakiest old thing they've contended with

    This is the first ever land rover in the rotunda which certainly had drip trays

    Pleasant unexpected lunch today with Richard Attwood and Derek Bell at RAC country club Woodcote Park in surrey.

    Attending the hall of fame event and Attwood sat on the seat next to me then was joined by Bell. They must have felt the Porsche vibe
    Charming chaps also Gordon Spice in attendance.

    Turns out Derek Bell had raced for the racing team of previous owner of what is now my car. Also a different previous owner of my car had raced a Spice Cosworth to C2 victory success a few decades ago at Le Mans! The racing community is a small world
