The Master continued to share his passion for motoring by inviting Guild members and their guests to the Royal Automobile Club and 350 acre estate where he is a member which is set in the beautiful Surrey countryside just outside Epsom.
Members were able to view the Club’s heritage vehicle collection, including automobiles from the RAC patrol fleet and those stalwarts of the London to Brighton Veteran Car Run, the 1900 Simms and 1901 Mors. Jane Holmes, the Heritage manager guided us through the Club’s heritage and the historical innovations which have aided the development of the automobile through the ages, while an authentic 1950’s garage display, complete with Sir Stirling Moss’s 1955 OSCA, had been created to represent the Club’s historic motoring and motorsport involvement through the 21st century.
After many opportunities to try the vehicles for size, Guild members were privileged to be able to enjoy a delicious lunch in the Fountain Brasserie, one of the restaurants located in the magnificent Woodcote Park clubhouse.
