HAND OVER DAY April 2019.
The facilities of our sponsor, The British Motor Museum,were excellent for the hand over of nine cars (the Alvis will follow in a few weeks) to the selected lucky drivers. following a welcome to all involved the the new drivers took the wheel on a special road set up on site. The older cars presented the greater challenge with crash type gearboxes taking a while to handle. But all was well and our drivers departed for the experience of a lifetime … well the rest of the year!
Each drove away with appropriate oils from Duckhams and with insurance in place, thanks to a voucher for reduction of premium, from Peter James Insurance Co.
A few pictures below give a flavour of the day.
The Alvis Hand Over took place at the NEC.(See below).
