An Evening with David Richard & Friends from the Aston Martin Owners Club

Truro & District Motor Club are pleased to announce another evening in St Mawes with our club president Mr David Richards on Saturday 14th October

Full details of the event –

‘The Story of Aston Martin’

Club President David Richards has on behalf of the Club invited a number of guests to come along and give presentations on this very British marque.

The event will be held at the Memorial Hall St Mawes on Saturday 14th October 2017 commencing at 8.00pm, it is a ticket only event and we have priced them at a very reasonable cost of £15.00 each.

After the normal expenses, the remaining money raised will all go to two local charities – The Cornwall Air Ambulance Trust and The Cornwall Urology Trust for Prostate Cancer.

Speakers will be:

David Wright, a longstanding member of the Aston Martin Owners Club and aficionado of the brand, who will talk about how the company started and the pre-war years of Aston Martin.

Maitland Cook, who knew all the key members of the 1950’s Aston Martin Race Team, will talk about the David Brown era of the company.

David Richards, who will bring us right up to date with the latest motor racing activities from when they launched the DBR9 in 2003 right up to the most recent Le Mans success and their new car for next season.

And Marek Reichman, who is the current Vice President of Aston Martin and responsible for the design of all the current cars, who will talk about the present vehicles and the future of the company.

Quite a line up, which bodes well for a very exciting evening.

The post code for the memorial hall is TR2 5DJ, it is up the road opposite the Idle Rocks hotel. You should use the general car park as there is very, very limited parking in the hall road.

There will be tea and coffee available during the mid-evening interval.

Car Recognition Quiz

This year’s car recognition quiz will take place on Thursday 10th November at the Plume of Feathers in Mitchell as before. It promises to be an enjoyable and entertaining event. Last time the room was full and everyone had a great time. The quiz is a mixture of car photos from different decades and you are bound to recognise some of them. You do not have to be any good to take part but you have to be incredibly good to win.  The quiz is brilliantly put together by Nigel and Rose Stephens to raise money for MacMillan and entries are £5 per person.
