Hi folks

I spoke with a few people at the Jaguar visit earlier this month to determine the amount of interest in this possible event.

I've spoken to Pro-drive about the details of their heritage tour and they are as following...

  • A weekend tour costs about £27 per person
  • The tour takes about 3 hours in total
  • The tour starts off in the heritage centre where you can see examples of Prodrive modified rally cars (see http://www.prodrive.com/level3.html?id=809 for a list)
  • You can also buy specialist pro-drive parts here at reduced prices
  • Once the heritage centre tour is complete, you move onto the engines/transmissions department where you can see Aston Martins and Mini car builds, fabrication, CNC, electrical and WRC tuning in progress.
Refreshments are also available at the start of the tour.

For those who liked the Heritage Motor Museum, it is about 15mins away from Pro-drive if you wish to visit it afterwards.

So, if this possible event is of interest to you, please put your name down below and if enough people are interested, I will potentially look into
arranging this either in autumn or next year.

More details on Pro-drive can be found @

Thanks!

Alex

Right folks.

I'm aiming to do this one Saturday during October - either 6, 13, 20 or 27th.

Please put down your preference and I will aim for the majority date.

Also note, this particular event is only open to TVRCC members.

I will need a response by about the 10th August, although this is dependent
on how much advance notice Prodrive need and the dates they have available.

Thanks!

Looks like the 6th wins.

So, I've booked the 6th for 15 people. That gives scope for some more people to come.

Hi Alex
Any idea what timings are for this one - hopefully not too early as I need to pick up the Tamora from Jason on the way.
