Chairman’s Annual Report 2015

2015 saw another busy calendar for Truro and District Motor Club. John H Collins organised a dozen AutoSOLO’s at Cornwall College, Camborne, which were well supported by entrants and marshals alike. Most of these events brought first-timers into motorsport.

The four days of motor racing at the spring and autumn Tregrehan Speed Hillclimbs were a success, with an assorted number of vehicles in various states of engine tune racing up the hill. Andrew Dinner’s record was attempted by both Phil Montgomery-Smith and Mike Lee but it proved elusive. The Tregrehan Speed Hillclimb Academy continues to thrive in its second year, also helping to raise new entrants up the motorsport ladder.

In May, a number of us helped marshal on the TSH Stages Rally at RAF Portreath. Amongst the cars entered were a number of highly tuned vehicles that were very entertaining to watch.

In November, Nigel and Rose Stephens organised another excellent vehicle recognition quiz night at The Plume of Feathers, the proceeds, of over £600, going to Macmillan Cancer Support.   The evening was supported by over fifty quizzers who had a great time. We all appreciate the research and hard work that must go into planning a car quiz night.

Early December saw Le Jog classic car rally with many club members helping out at Cornwall College, Camborne with the marshalling there.

In mid-December, we had our annual awards luncheon at The Alverton, Truro. Since last year’s awards luncheon David Richards CBE has accepted our invitation to be Truro and District Motor Club’s President. David presented the many award winners with their trophies and plaques.

We now look forward to 2016, which no doubt, will bring new challenges to the club, but with continued support from the club members, we are confident of enjoying another great year of Cornish motorsport.
