    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.

    Located near to Croydon and Bromley, and close to the A232, The Crown has an extensive range of cask ales and craft beers including their very own Ember Inns Pale Ale. There’s also a large food menu which is reasonably priced for anybody wanting to eat beforehand.

    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 barrygcharlie@aol.com for your tickets)

    The Crown can be found at 28 Wickham Road, Shirley, Croydon, CR0 8BA

    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 barrygcharlie@aol.com or davewhyman@hotmail.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!

    The time has come for ‘ICN ’18’. An evening of racing, rallying, classic and modern cars and a free barbecue. We’re looking forward to an evening of interesting cars, camaraderie and great food. See you there?

    Find it on facebook here, Like it, share it, add your photos and click ‘going’.

    Once again Guildford Tyres opens its depot for an exhibition of all things motoring. Chris and the team will be firing up the barbecue with locally sourced sausages and burgers. Food and drinks are on the house (only whilst stocks last).

    Guildford Tyre Company is at:

    All members and non-members are welcome. Bring along an interesting car, or just come along and join us, chat to the owners, and see the display.

    We’ve moved it to August so it’ll hopefully be warmer and dryer. We’re promising to practice being better parking attendants this year too. Last year saw about 70 cars and 200 or more visitors. It ranged from an 1899 Sims to the latest 750hp Tesla and the biggest two door car we’ve ever seen (at 19′ long!)

    We’ll be inviting Tesla again, and hopefully they’ll be offering the usual passenger rides. 2.8seconds to 60mph is quite something in an electric car.

    Tell us you’ll be there and what you’ll bring, if anything, feel free to be an interested visitor.The time has come for ‘ICN ’18’.
