The last VSCC event of 2013, the Winter Driving Tests, takes place this Saturday!

Members are reminded that the Club's final event of 2013, the Winter Driving Tests, take place at St George’s Barracks, Bicester this Saturday 7 December. The year’s traditional curtain-closer is the last chance for competitors to accrue those all-important points towards the Club’s many Annual Aggregate Trophies as well as their final opportunity to compete in earnest with the Club this year.
2013 marks a significant milestone in this much-loved event’s history as it will be the final time that long-standing organiser Malcolm Elder will act as Clerk of the Course. After 36 years and five different venues, Malcolm will be handing the reins over to his son Mark following this year’s Driving Tests, aptly named “Swansong”. He is sure to provide another stellar set of themed tests that will be the usual blend of challenge and enjoyment so we hope to see a bumper number of members out to join in the celebrations for one of the Club’s loyal supporters!   
 
Driving Tests are a fun and challenging discipline and often seen as a great introduction to motor sport for the younger member, promoting car control and accuracy in an entertaining and friendly surrounding so expect to see a number of younger VSCC members amongst the day's entry embracing the wintery conditions and coming to test their vintage driving skills with us this weekend.

VSCC Members are encouraged to come and join us at St George's Barracks on Saturday (don't forget your 2013 VSCC Membership Card to gain access to the venue - guests are welcome to attend as long as they arrive with a card-carrying member). And don't forget that there is more than just the Driving Tests taking place...

MEDICALS

Once again our VSCC doctors and helpers will be in attendance at the Winter Driving Tests for MSA medicals as before. There is no need to book a medical, simply turn up at St George’s Barracks with your body, your licence application form and your cheque book. A choice of a Forces charity or Practical Action will be the beneficiaries of the fee of £75.00 – those of you that pay tax will be asked to complete a ‘gift aid’ declaration as well so that the charity can claim the tax on your donation.

MSA stress test ECGs can be performed at Kettering General Hospital ECG Department for a fee which remains at £100. The welcome extra donation of cash on top of this has been used to buy a television and other equipment to keep patients happy. Telephone the ECG Department on 01536 492485 for an appointment. The test is often during the lunch hour of the technicians; a report written at the same time will be available.
 
Bonhams are kindly donating champagne in a free raffle for medical candidates and marshals.
 

RACE & SPEED FORUM

We will also be holding our annual end of season Race & Speed Forum at the venue on the day. This is your chance to give feedback on the 2013 calendar of Race, Sprint and Hill Climb events and also put forward any suggestions for these disciplines for next year and beyond; tell us what you think of the venues, meetings and organisation all in an open forum style meeting. Everyone is welcome, seasoned competitors, marshals or those who are just starting out – so please come along and tell us what you want from the events organised by your Club.

Competing cars will be in action from 9.00am and the Forum is planned to tie in with the lunch break commencing at 11.30am in the Lecture Hall and will conclude by approximately 2.00pm.
