The Club have been invited to attend the Midsummer Festival in Montpellier Gardens, Cheltenham on Saturday 6th July from 10:00 to 17:00.
The organisers would like us to once again join up with the Cotswold Classic Car club and put on a static display of the things we do at CMC.
Let us know if you have a car you would like to display, standard or modified and/or have some time to help promote the Club. Thanks Kev Smith, Club Chairman
Next Friday evening you can escape the hustle and bustle of Cheltenham Races and enter our 12 car event.
Using some fantastic lanes around the Worcestershire, Herefordshire and Gloucestershire border area you are guaranteed fun.
We have to add that none of the route being used compromises the route of the Three Shires Stages to be held six months today.
Bring your maps 149 and 150 along (any recent versions) and you are guaranteed to use lanes you’ve never been down before.
Starting from Redmarley Village Hall at 8pm prompt – you are welcome to join us there from 6.30pm onwards.
Time control marshals are also required so please let us know if you are willing to help out that way.
The results will be back at the Hall where soup and fine ale etc will also be available – though this isn’t the Final TC point!
Look forward to seeing your names on that entry list!

Three Shires Stages
Saturday 7th September 2019
The Organising Committee are now pleased to announce that, after 13 months of hard work and determination, we have now been issued an organising permit by Motorsport UK.
The rally will be based at the Eastnor Deer Park near to the town of Ledbury with special stages spread across the three counties of Gloucestershire, Herefordshire and Worcestershire. There will be three loops of six different special stages, 18 stages all together, totalling approximately 47 stage miles and 80 liaison miles.
We are pleased that the response from both the public and councils on the route has been nothing but positive. We are now committed to ensuring this event is a huge success.
Entries will open around Mid-June and Marshals Registration will open in the next few days/weeks.
