RIP Alan Blundell
We are very sad to report that our club member Alan Blundell died unexpectedly on Wednesday 27th January. Alan had the lovely SS Jaguar Old No. 8 Replica which he built some years ago. He has raced at our November Classic a couple of times and in 2020 at our January Drivers' Training Day Bill Denize reports that he was lucky enough to go out with Alan in the SS for a few circuits around the Manfeild track. It was a beautifully built car and he had a number of Jags in his collection of cars. Several years ago the OSH Group enjoyed a very pleasant few hours over drinks and a BBQ at Alan and Marie's lovely home (since sold) they had on the hills above Waikanae where they had extensive workshop facilities for all his car projects. Alan was a very clever engineer. He will be much missed on club events.

The Auckland and Wellington Centres will once again be organising the Easter Rally in 2021, back once again to New Plymouth.

The basic programme will be;
Friday - Welcome BBQ dinner.
Saturday - Concours and Trial, free evening.
Sunday - Motorkhana and Autocross, prizegiving dinner.
Registration fees are $100 per person for all events, including Friday and Sunday dinners. Accommodation should be booked as soon as possible to secure rooms before the busy Easter rush!
