Live Q&A - Interview with a Racy Lady

Sunday the 17th January, 11am(UK Time)

Gillian has been a staple in the racing community for decades - whether it was competing competitively in the 70s or at the Goodwood Revival more recently. She is best known for her efforts campaigning Ford Escorts as part of the Works Team. While in more recent times, you can usually find her in an Aston of some variety or another.

Her love of both Horses and Cars has kept her busy over the years. She is of the mind that there is definitely an affinity between horse riding and driving, none more so than exhibited by Sir Stirling Moss who competed in show jumping in all his young years until he got a driving licence.

‘I think his balance and empathy, the feel and sensitivity through his fingers and hands was very much there because of riding. If you can ride, you should be able to drive. It's all about feel and balance. I think there is a similarity between the two sports’.

A Club Member since the 70’s, Gillian has been active in sports and touring car races in the UK and Europe between 1970 and 1975, then later in historic motorsport.

Nowadays she works as an ARDS instructor, races occasionally, and she is also a contributor to many well know magazines on subjects that are close to her heart, together with more recently taking to after dinner speaking.

A chance to have a live audience with this formidable Lady, hosted by Peter Snowdon this is a live Q&A with a difference.

Inspirational Talk - Al Sylvester

This is an epic tale of leading the RAF's first unsupported attempt on the Geographic South Pole. Al describes how he selected and trained his team to survive in tents on Antarctica, while skiing unsupported the 600 nautical miles to the bottom of the earth. His heart on sleeve personal account of the day to day living on the ice, living on dried food, toilet drills to skiing in temperatures of - 45 degrees, leave you with no doubt that Antarctica is one of the most beautiful but most hostile locations in the world. He concludes his presentation by reliving the effects that frostbite had on him and the mental resilience and determination he displayed to recover, to once again lead others to fulfil their dreams.

Champagne Secrets Uncovered live Q&A - 13th Dec 2020 5pm (PAST)

Guest Speaker: Kevin Mckee, UK Director Family Taittinger

Host: Anthony Oade, Deputy Chairman and Partnerships Director

Taittinger have been the proud partner Champagne to AMOC for nearly 20 years. Concours, race and social events alike have all enjoyed a touch of Taittinger sparkle.

Whilst we are mostly homebound with ongoing restrictions, we thought this would a great opportunity to learn more about the secrets of Champagne both the region and the wines, and the session proved very popular.

Kevin has worked with Champagne for as long as Taittinger has been associated with the club and had a wealth of knowledge to share. He has kindly offered to join a Q&A with Anthony to reveal some of the region’s rich and fascinating history and stories, as well as give us a guide to the different styles of Champagne just in time for the forthcoming Christmas celebrations.

The masterclass was enjoyed equally with or without a glass of Taittinger bubbles.

This was a fascinating reveal.
