Our year started well as twenty DCC members, wives and guests all met at Caraffini’s restaurant in London to socialise and chat about our exciting forthcoming year of events. Some of the group met earlier at the Victoria & Albert museum to visit the exhibition, “Accelerating the Modern World”, a fascinating insight of how the car has become one of the most loved, contested and influential innovations in the world. The evening was a lot of fun and very relaxed – with all the usual banter.
Next stop is May 5th for a Supercar track day at Goodwood. We plan to visit Champagne between June 29th and July 2nd and are just putting the final touches together, which will include a tasting and dinner at Bollinger and a visit to one other famous house; some places are still available.
In October, we will swap over to 4-wheel drive for a Land Rover driving experience. Please contact me at carrnicholas@yahoo. co.uk or 07803 856780 to find out more details about the track day and the other events. Remember, you don’t have to have a fancy car, just a love of travel, being with like-minded people and a young heart.
