Forge Motorsport Action Day - Sat  Sept 8th.
The organisers of Castle Combe circuit have invited us back with space for 10 cars once again in the main arena . They have also said there will possibly be track action as we have had previously with Pegasus track days.

This day is a big venture with over 100 car clubs attending ,and being local and free to us, it's well worth attending. Phil has the details and passes ready, he just needs to know who wants to attend to finalise the meeting times etc.

Last year I think about 6 of us went and all enjoyed the event, so please let Phil
know if you are interested.

Classics at the Castle 15th JULY - Sherborne, Dorset

For those that have been before it's a massive event and we are as usual
situated right in front of the castle, by the supercars.
It's an early start, leaving Bristol by 8.00 am as we need to be in
Sherbourne by 9.30 and in place by the 10.00 am show opening time.
Last year due to the rain only two Bristol cars made it, but ten arrived
from Apple County which kept the rodding turn out up.
Usual entrance fee I beleive is 10.00 so with free passes it's a good
day out, so if you're interested let Phil know soon as possible.

Sandblasting

Just to let you know that Colin Fox at Avon County Road & Race has a sandblasting cabinet, so if you are looking for any parts to be blasted clean then give him a shout. The cabinet will take just about anything up to inlet manifolds, including wheels, and it produces an amazing clean finish in no time at all.

Rate would be 20 per half hour of blasting - and that would get a lot of brackets and parts done. Give Colin a call on 07772 131861 if you need some parts blasting and he’ll see what we can do for you.

November 2011



Ian Walker asks if anyone wants to bring their car to Nailsworth this Friday evening.

He has volunteered to provide some classic cars/bikes/customs for the parade/static display for this year's Nailsworth Christkindl.

Apparently the event starts the official Christmas celebrations in the town and is a thank you from the local businesses to the locals there. It has been the traditional event to switch on the Xmas lights too.

If you are interested then it takes place on Friday 25th November, gathering at Nailsworth Fire Station at 17.30. The parade starts at 18.00 and lasts only 20 minutes or so. Afterwards there is the chance to park up at a static display and enjoy the festivities.

If you are interested then please let Ian know - he will be there with his Model A and hopes to put a good show on for them. 

Ian plans to gather some of the cars at The Gables on A38 near Falfield (just north of junction 14 on M5) and leave at 16.30 to travel in convoy.

Reminders for a couple of car meets, both on the second Sunday of each month. The first has been going on now for over a year with a few of us meeting up down there last year. It's held in Queens square in Bristol, and all forms of bikes and cars turn up. The meet takes place in the morning from 9am and the idea is a kind of breakfast club - usually its over by 11.30am. Here's the web site:
http://www.avenuedriversclub.co.uk


     
 
     
The second meet takes place in the afternoon at Avonmeads outside Krispy Kreme. This is an informal meet -just people with cars having a chat and a donut. Leave Rodway Common, (Mangotsfield school) at 2pm or meet at Krispy Kreme's about 2.30pm - all welcome.

'Crazy' Chris Hartnell and the C&C Nostalgia Drag Racing Team will be running the Backdraft slingshot dragster at the Silverstone Classic on July 22-24.

The team was also pleased to find that a nice photo of the canopied slingshot was chosen to be featured on the event handouts (below).

The Silverstone Classic is a fabulous 3 day weekend of ‘Flat Out Fun for all the Family’ now celebrating its 21st birthday. The ‘Worlds Biggest Classic Motor Racing Festival’, with around 800 fabulous and exotic race cars competing, attracting about 1000 competitors, over 7000 beautiful classic cars on the infield, an ‘Access All Areas’ policy, rock and classical music entertainment on a grand scale, aerobatic displays, a Period Fun Fair, Shopping, and much more.

The Bristol Grillstock organisers would love some Bristol Hotrods guys to attend with their cars - they say "the music and entertainment line-up is fantastic this year and I think you'd really enjoy the weekend. Let me know how many of you can make it and I will make sure you are on the guest list and that we have some food and drink sorted for you!"

Grillstock should be fun as it's not a car show more an experience - with cars added and a nice venue. Please contact Phil ASAP if you're interested.

Grillstock on 1st-3rd July. Back this summer bigger, better and louder.

Children's Hospice car show
An event for car enthusiasts is being held at (and in support of) the Children's Hospice near Bristol on Saturday 9th July, a very worthwhile charity that cares for over 1,000 seriously ill children and their families. The event is sponsored by Bath and Bristol Audi, and Pistonheads has officially promoted it on their homepage. Entrance is free but ALL cars need to register for the security of the hospice. Already registered are many interesting cars including 1 of 2 Duesenbergs in the UK, a Bugatti Type 57 Atalante (1 of 3), a Bentley Le Mans, 2 of the 4 TVR Typhons that exist, Ultimas, Ferraris, etc. Full details can be found here: http://www.caringwithcars.com
The Hospice is very easy to get to, located just a couple of miles off the M5 motorway (Junction 19) near Bristol in lovely countryside. To attend, you will need to register here: http://www.pistonheads.com/calendar (You can't just turn up on the day). If you don't have a Pistonheads account, it takes seconds to create one.

The Crash Box & Classic Car Club of Devon are holding a show on the banks of the River Exe, south of Exeter at Powderham Castle. There is camping on site and a large beer tent with food being served. The event will be held on 8th-9th July, but the event opens on the 7th so it is possible to arrive earlier.

Phil & Jules, who used to live in Devon (and have lived in the South of France since '95) realised that one of the few things they miss from the UK is the hotrod and custom scene. They built 'Moonshiner' way back in '79, in a garage so small the boots had to sit in the lounge until we'd finished, and the body was air-brushed and lacquered on the dining table, in the lounge in a first floor flat. Phil & Jules now have a gite holiday business - so if any members or friends would like a holiday, they would love to catch up on hotrods and custom news. There are some cheap (sometimes even cheaper) flights direct from Bristol to Toulouse, and we would gladly offer 10% discount to anyone mentioning Bristol Hotrods.

 

 

April 2011



April is here so now our season starts .. we've had the Castle Combe run, and as luck would have it, no rain either. Not as many cars as I thought would make it - but still 12 turned out for the season opener. Heres the link to the event as written by Tony Smith of the Pegasus car club:
http://www.castlecombetrackday.org.uk/2011-review

Tony says "a big thank you to you and your fellow hot-rodders who attended the Hot Rod Show and Parade at the Bristol Pegasus Motor Club Tuition and Track Day ... I wasn't sure any were going to attend following the early morning rain, but I was very pleased to see 12 fine vehicles attended ... The circuit track manager is enjoying the lunch time parade around the circuit which it seems can be an annual event."


 

 

Coming up in May is another chance to visit the Prescott Speed Hill Climb on Sat 28th & Sun 29th May 2011, this spectacular two day event is fast becoming a feature in many motoring enthusiasts' diaries. If you'd like to attend and be part of a Bristol Hotrods club visit, please let Phil know.

February 2011



Now Christmas over and January has fast disappeared, here's what has happened locally. Merv Barnett has sold his gold Willys, Phil has sold his '32 coupe, and late last year Chris Hartnell sold on his blue 5-window. Still at least the 5-window stays local, as it is now in the hands of Ade Wells.  

 

The Haynes Exotic Car Show is to be held on 3rd July 2011. This is a new event for the museums but they are already getting a lot of interest. It is basically as the title suggests but we are aiming for 1000 cars, or more, ranging from classics up to modern supercars. They have some American clubs interested and thought it might also be an event that Bristol Hot Rods would like to attend.
Please let Phil know if this would be of interest Haynes have already started booking spaces.


 

Another show called the South West Car Fest will be held in Exeter WestPoint on the 25th and 26th June 2011 and as a local club as in the South West the organisers are inviting the Bristol Hotrods to have a club stand in the main hall to display some of our member cars. There is also a day car show area and camping which is free for the main display cars. Check out South West Car Fest and give Phil a shout if you're interested!
 

Web site visitors Bernard and Dan Allum tell us they visited Bonneville Speed Week in 2010, and were overwhelmed by the friendship and engineering .. they hope you'll like their couple of YouTube videos below:
