Early November saw Mark Bullen cross the channel to compete on the Rallye Des 7 Vallées D’Artois in his BMW Rivett, complete with his SCMC fan club (see the latest Spotlight magazine for more details). Competing against much newer, expensive technically advanced machinery, Mark finished an impressive 24th o/all from 85 starters, also finishing 2ndBritish crew out of 15.
It’s all systems go for our fun single-venue rally on 29th December 2018 at Princess Royal Barracks, Deepcut.

Take a night off from writing the Christmas cards and join Dave Penn for the next Sutton& Cheam Down the Pub evening at the The Crown in Shirley on Tuesday, 11th December from 9pm.

Catch up on the latest club news, hopefully there will be some positive news on The Mini Tempest Deepcut stages over Christmas, entries are still coming in which is good news. It will also be an opportunity to discuss ideas for the club’s 60th Anniversary, which is kicking off with the 60th Anniversary Dinner & Awards evening on Saturday, 26th January (contact Barry Guess email@example.com for your tickets)

- September Competitor Of The Month – Dale Huxford
Armed with his replacement second-hand 1500cc, £250 engine, which is slower than his old 1300cc (the old 1300cc had decided that it didn’t want be together anymore and is now in many pieces !!), Dale showed that he’s lost none of his skill and pushed the Spitfire to its limits to finish 2nd in class at Gurston in September.
- French Offroad Championship Spectating Trip – Nov 2nd – 4th
As previously advertised in Spotlight, Sutton & Cheam Motor Club are looking at running a short trip across the water to watch and support Mark Bullen’s epic attempts in the French Off Road Championship.
The trip to Rallyes Touts-Terrain (near Le Havre in northern France) will launch from Folkestone Channel Tunnel around noon on Friday 2nd November. Then, travelling via the Hotel (likely to be the Best Western Hotel just 12 miles from the Rally Base in Auchy les Hesdin) we will visit the pre-event scrutiny session and maybe a beer or two.
Dinner and an overnight stay at the hotel precedes a day of spectating at this most exciting off-road event where buggies, monster off-roaders and converted yet recognisable road cars all compete over the extremely fast, rough French countryside on courses similar to our rally stages. Visits to the Service Area are a must as in true French style, everyone stops for lunch which will be taken at a suitable time and place before further spectating until the light fades and dinner calls.
Next morning and after breakfast, it will be a third and final stint on the stages, lunch and then back to Eurotunnel Calais, arriving back in Folkestone around tea-time Sunday evening.
At present, the cost is likely to be around £135 per person for the 3 days including travel, fuel and accommodation.
Anybody interested should send an expression of interest by Sunday 30th September (email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com) with a firm commitment needed shortly after (bookings for trains and hotels have to be made and paid for).
So please join us on what we hope may become an annual trip over the channel for an early winter dose of high octane action!
