TDMC Rolling Road session -The results!

A Great turnout for the first annual TDMC rolling road day. 12 Cars braved the rain to turn up on Saturday morning at ARM to test the car on the rolling road. A wide range a cars from a standard K series Metro of Kennan which showed a massive 67bhp but may have some explaining to do as the care had a black box fitted as this was his first car! At the other end were the big guns of Ian Roscorla in his new 6.0l Vauxhall Monaro and the Nissan 350z (supercharged) and it went the way of Jamie Findon in the 350z with the best of the day at 457bhp. The weird award but putting in a good show at 150bhp was the diesel converted VW caddy of Ryan Freeman.

The committee are currently arranging a discounted rolling road session for club members and their friends (or in reality their cars!) The session will take the format of a number of runs (minimum of 2) where the car is secured to the rolling road and the bhp is then calculated from a number of factors.

Come along or challenge a friend to a BHP off we may even consider an award for the car that records the highest BHP which would be presented at the Christmas lunch.

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.
