Royal Oak at Brockham, Near Dorking, Surrey, RH3 7JS. Starting at 6pm. For details, contact Peter Spackman.

UK Midlands West – Vintage Transport Rally, July 15
This annual event at the British Ironworks Centre near Oswestry, Shropshire, attracts 500 or so wide-ranging vehicles, advises Peter Wells. The Ironworks Centre is fascinating even without the vehicles, so it should be an interesting day.

Sunday July 16th – Sculptural Cars in an appropriate setting!
Starting at sculptor Simon Gudgeon’s stunning ‘Sculpture by the Lakes’ venue for either a picnic or lunch in their new cafeteria, followed by a self-guided tour of this truly original and memorable exhibition, the group will then undertake a drive around Dorset ending at a final tea-stop destination to be decided! Please contact Paul Abadjian for more information. If you would like to make a ‘Dorset weekend’ of it, Paul can also supply accommodation suggestions. For more details please click here.

UK East Anglia – Helmingham Hall, August 6
A number of us attend the Helmingham Hall Classic car festival in conjunction with the E-type Club, writes Mike Read. This is a lovely day out as there is lots going on. Please let me know if you are thinking of attending.

UK West Midlands – Lunch Meet, Stourport, Sept 10
Our next lunch meeting will be at the Old Beams restaurant in Stourport: I’m trying to arrange a Jaguar speaker for that occasion, writes Peter Wells. More details later.

USA Midwest – Going to the Sun Rally, September 2017
We often see articles on the rallies in Europe and the UK and thought this might be of interest, even if it is a long way to come, writes Jim Kakuska. The Rally is based in Montana and each year explores the areas from Glacier National Park to Yellowstone, from the Beartooth Pass to the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho, and this year the Okanogan Valley in British Columbia (“The pic, by Will Brewster, shows us on the informally-named ‘Better than Sex’ highway between Libby and Whitefish, MT,” laughs Sally). All provide great roads for driving, scenic vistas, and a unique camaraderie among the participants. See www.goingtothesunrally.org.
