We were invited by AMHT to participate in the unveiling of a plaque to mark the birthplace of Lionel Martin who, together with Robert Bamford, formed the company which eventually became Aston Martin. A timeline of 16 cars was provided from A3, the oldest surviving Aston, through to DB11 which was kindly provided by AML Bristol. Our thanks to the Trust, David Wright and Richard Pinkett for their hard work to make the unveiling possible.
We were invited by the Truro & District Motor Club to attend a presentation they put on to coincide with the unveiling of the plaque to mark the birthplace of Lionel Martin at Nansladron House near St Austell. An excellent evening which was enjoyed by all.
Our Area 11 display proved to be a great success for both members and visitors alike.
The weekend 13-15 October was our trip to Grasmere in the Lake District with a drive out and visit to Lakeland Car Museum on the Saturday. Sunday lunch was at the Royal Windemere Yacht Club in Bowness where we were joined by members from the Lakeland Historic Car Club making a grand display of Astons and Classics. We finished off with a visit to the grand Windemere Motor Boat Racing Club.
