The Winterbottom Run

Re: RIP Oliver Winterbottom

Careful, Oliver was instrumental in the design of the TVR suspension and chassis! We don’t want any bolts from the blue!

Nice idea about May.

Re: RIP Oliver Winterbottom

Oliver’s funeral is at 12.00 midday on Thursday 3 November at Wymondham Abbey. Unfortunately it is the last day of lockdown so the restriction of 30 guests applies.

Re: Virtual meetings anyone?

You’re right Pete, I will adjust the start time to 18.30 but probably won’t be able to join until later myself.

I’d like to spend a bit of time discussing club business as well.

I do agree Bash - I just hope the cars remain within the financial reach of mere mortals!
