Graham Sykes Insurance have been kind enough to offer our club members discount on their car insurance quotes and have made the ‘DinkyDevils’ an approved club listed on their website.
A quote can be obtained here:
Please make use of this generous offer, it could well save you a lot of money on your car insurance.
It will of course be necessary to prove club membership when asked, the club secretary can assist in providing this.
The devils first outing of the year to Brooklands motor museum was abandoned after some unseasonable weather resulted in significant snowfall and extremely cold winds, the event went ahead due to a lack of snow that far south but we decided as a club to wait for warmer weather and to give the M25 a miss.
This meant the first proper devils outing of 2013 was the Sharnbrook hotel classic car meet.
Having not been to this annual show before we didn’t know quite what to expect, it is set in the hotel grounds/car park and was quite empty when we first arrived, however, a couple of hours later the place was ‘heaving’, cars were penned in due to the shear number of people that decided to attend.
The chosen vehicle this year was the Mini and quite a few Minis turned up although there were many stunning examples of classic cars in attendance ranging from VW camper vans to modern day Ferraris and Lambo’s.
A number of enormous American classic cars turned up as did a top fuel funny car from Santa Pod Raceway, didn’t run unfortunately but can’t have everything. A few kit cars turned up as did MG’s and lots of very old classics in immaculate condition.
Well worth a visit, a great day out, they hold other car events there such as an Italien day which no doubt would be well worth a visit.
