Santa Arrives at Lane Cove – in A Renault

Last Sunday we all had a wonderful Christmas get together at the Lane Cove National Park.  It was a good club attendance with all having a great time , adults and kids alike.

The feature event was Santa Claus arriving in a tricked up Megane RS 230. ( Which looked a lot like Ted’s car)

Santa looks like he has lost some weight just like the Polar Bears have in his native North Pole.

Lunch was a delicious affair with some lovely NZ ice cream to top off the fine feast.

A great BIG THANKYOU to those who went to a lot of trouble organizing such a great day!!

Joyeux Noel to all club Members and Friends

Shannon’s Classic – 14th August

Shannon’s Classic was again another great day although the club was down a few members cars.  However we did had some interesting cars on display including 4 beautiful R8 Gordinis,  Alana’s stunning pre war MG , R12s , R16s and R10s plus two R8s;  Kevin Byron’s award winning on and a yellow one owned by someone who is very dodgy. R8   The 750s and Dauphines had their 70 and 60 year birthday displays in the pit area and they certainly drew a lot of admirers.
The show itself was the usual splattering of old and now so old cars from around the globe.  A great day for any car enthusiast
