  • The One (Two) and Only (Two) Preston

    Having been a member of West Essex since 1970, I very sadly decided late last year to transfer my allegiance to Chelmsford MC, as they seemed to be very active in many disciplines, and I had been marshalling on some of their events the previous year and had bumped into several old faces such as Geoff Lobb and Gary Nicholls.

  • Club of the Year 2009

    TonyM's picture

    Chelmsford Motor Club was awarded "JLT Sport / MSA Motor Club of the Year 2009" at the MSA Night of Champions.
    Paul Barrett & Brian Jaggs attended.

    Here are a few photos from the MSA awards night - in the group photo note Brian standing
    just in front and to the left of Ross Brawn (and Paul next to Pat Doran, Lydden Hill owner
    & Rallycross champion).

    The compère for the night was Tony Jardine - he read out most of the brief that Paul wrote
    for the submission to the MSA, and which was subsequently published in Motorsports Now.

  • Southdown Stages

    Saturday 7th February 2009

    Gavin had been spending 4 or 5 hours a night in the workshop last week, DVY was finally ready enough for Goodwood, he’d had no time to set up the front suspension but it looked about right.

  • EACS Endurance 2008

    Here is an article I wrote on the EACS Endurance back in April that somehow missed the last edition of Spotlight.

    Congratulations to CMC member Owen Turner navigated by Andrew Dadswell for their fourth consecutive win on the EACS Endurance – this year by a margin of only five seconds from Jamie Turner / Ian Collings who were quicker during the Saturday selectifs but overhauled early in the night route, despite a strong challenge from Carl Hawkins / Iain Tullie.

    Emma Henchoz and Jeanne Taylor win the Tour Britannia: 3 days and 750 miles, 3 road regularities, 4 circuits and 14 speed venues later we arrived back at Coombe Abbey and were officially declared the winners of the 2008 Tour Britannia Rally. Scrutineering at Duxford on Monday afternoon was followed by a Champagne Reception and Dinner at Kings College, Cambridge, and then the fun really began!
