RACA Motoring - June Update

MOTORING NEWS 

RACA Motor Tour 2018 

Following their successful inaugural RACA Motor Tour in 2017 the organizers , Sir Victor Nash and Stephen Wells provided a 3 night event in 2018 centred around Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. Victor, as usual ensured that we had a variety of dining experiences ranging from the impressive Newcastle Club to a Thai banquet in a dockside pub.

There was some coming and going during the 4 days but at one point 14 people were all together in the one place. The range of car was interesting with Victor’s Bentley Continental, Mike Mulvihill’s Rolls-Royce Silver Seraph and Peter Eppel’s Lotus Europa stealing the show. However there were also two BMWs, a Jaguar, a Daimler and Ted Humphry’s dominating gold Ford utility.

Among many notable moments were visits to the historic Tomago House and Leogate Estate Winery together with the first event, lunch at the delightful Pearl Beach and the last event, a visit to Fort Scratchley on a Newcastle headland where somewhat to her surprise Sue Reed was able to study wall charts showing photographs and history of her Grandfather Colonel Dobson.

Great weekend, we look forward to the 2019 RACA Motor Tour.

We would like to invite all Club members to a bring your interesting car to a night in the Garage on Wednesday October 4th. Do make a note of the date in your diary now, We would like to extend the invitation in particular to those members who have not yet joined our group to show and discuss your pride and joy on the night.
