Radiator Express – Issue 1

Welcome to the very first copy of what I hope will be a monthly Harrow Car Club newsletter, the Radiator Express.

You will hopefully recall that a few months ago I asked for photos and information about what you had all been up to? Well, although you have not seen anything emerge from us to reward those of you who made the effort to send bits in as yet, now I hope this will be the start of a new era. The snippets you sent will be used my me in this newsletter and also by Matthew in the Radiator.

The success of the newsletter will depend on you, the club members!! We need your memories, your old and new photos. It would be nice if they were Harrow related but not essential. Motoring and motorsport related information and ideas are what we need. If you send me a series of notes (hand written will do), I will put them together into an article credited to you.

As I said above I intend the Radiator Express to be monthly or every two months. I will see how it goes, unfortunately I still have a day job and the organisation of the Universal Tyres TT Sprint which will be run on the 20th September at North Weald. It will depend on what you send to me!!

So thank you again those who have contributed so far, and of course all of you who will be contributing from now on!

Club Night and Update

I would like to thank the members who contacted me with stories and information about what they have been up to. Everything will be used either in the next Radiator or a subsequent edition. Thank you again. I do however expect there are others of you out there with stories and memories? Why not share them??

I have attached a link to the photos I took this evening at the Ace Café.

Next month’s Club meet will be our concours evening on Chipperfield Common. So make a date in your diaries and get the polish out!!! Or just come and have a look and a chat? 9th June, come and support your club. There will be a flyer which I will email round.

Tell us what you have been doing. And photos of Werrington Park Hillclimb‏

Here are some photos from Werrington Park Hillclimb on Sunday. Unfortunately I was not competing but catching up with friends down there in Cornwall.

Of particular interest was a 1911 Sunbeam with a 4300cc engine, exposed flywheel and wicker seats. Also a 1932 MG J2 and a Riley Brooklands.

What have you been doing? If you have been doing anything interesting or been to a event you think other club members may be interested in why not let me have the details, photos, story and I will send it around? We could also use this, to gather articles for the Radiator, your club magazine.

I look forward to hearing from you all.

GBMC/HCC North Weald Sprint today‏

Thank you to the two Harrow members who came to NW today to support the club and marshal with me at this event which is co-promoted by Green Belt. Thank you Barry France and new member Peter Imray.

Despite the cold and possibly wet day the event ran very smoothly, with two practice and three timed runs. The weather stayed dry. There were three HCC competitors, Gary Lazarus (21), Paul Trimmer (43) and Andy Stevens (64), a small selection of the photos I took today can be seen if you click on this link –
