Ashton’s President’s Prattle for November, 2020

Ashton at the 2020 HSRCA Spring Festival

Well here we are in November! Who would have thunk it – I’m not exactly sure where this year has gone, but it does seem to have flashed by a bit faster even than the last few.

I’ll blame Covid. And that’s the last mention, I promise.

This is late as I was away all weekend at the delayed HSRCA Spring Festival at Wakefield. What a great turnout of varied and unusual cars – I am constantly surprised that there are so many hidden gems, and better yet that they are brought out to play. I’ll try to scribble some notes elsewhere to go with Seth’s awesome photography.

Club Lotus at CSCA 2020 R6

The final CSCA round of 2020 was held on Sunday the 18th of October on Sydney Motorsport Park’s North circuit, hosted by the Jaguar Drivers Club of Australia.

The Preserve, October 2020

‘The Preserve’ is the newsletter of the Council of Motor Clubs. It’s made available to members of CMC-affiliated clubs, and that means you!

This month’s magazine remembers Chris Mede and Jim Kerr, and features a very comprehensive article from the RMS about what can and can’t be done to a vehicle on HVS registration, along with plenty more. The RMS article is very much worth a look if you take advantage of HVS registration, or would like to at some point.

You can grab the October edition of ‘The Preserve’ from the following link, and we’ll archive it on the members page here.
