Marshals - Registration now open, please register using the online form on the website.
Some of you may have heard us going on about September being a busy month. Well that is no lie. There is an event nearly every weekend.
We really need the help of the Marshals to make sure these events are able to run safely.
The event dates are as follows.
Sunday 1st September - Targa Rally - Debden - organised by WSMC
Sunday 8th September - Stage Rally - Wethersfield - organised by AMSC
Saturday 21st September - Benja Field Stubbler Rally - Suffolk/Norfolk - Assisted by Jim Bowie & Team
Sunday 29th September - Autosolo/Autotest/PCA - Stanta - organised by SCCoN
The weekend of Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th August saw AMSC attend Festival of Wheels at Trinity Park in Ipswich.
We had a static stand at the event and also was able to run a demo grass autotest. This proved very popular with both competitors and spectators alike.
A massive thank you to everyone who made this weekend the success it was. Early in the week previous I really wasn't sure how I was going to make it to the event after coming down with Glandular Fever which really took all my energy, along with trips to Hospital etc. But I should never have doubted myself, I had a brilliant team behind me who ensured the weekend went smoothly and showcased what ASMC do so well.
We look forward to returning next year to this event and also look to attend more events where we can do demos.

Classic Car Concours at The Ace Cafe
Wednesday 24th July from 4pm
This event was brought to you by Harrow Car Club.
Special guest to present awards
''Run Baby Run'' Escort Racing Legend
An absolute superb selection of the finest cars tunred out for Harrow Car Clubs Classic Car Concours at The Ace Cafe, the first of many events for Harrow at this location. There was everything from a Reliant Robin to Aston Martin with everything in between.
I was lucky enough to attend with my Uncle's Ford Sierra XR4i owned by him from new with original bill of sale on the parcel shelf showing the trade in of his Renault Turbo.
Judging had been taking place all evening with awards presented by David Brodie, best mate of Williams F1.
The awards were presented as the car the judge would most like to take home with them.
1st Place - Lotus Carlton
2nd Place - Aston Martin
And with much shock in 3rd Place - Ford Sierra XR4i - My Uncle's
All in all a great event and look forward to next years.
