It falls to me to write the first Safety Fast! notes for 2016 and therefore I would like to take the opportunity to wish you all a very happy and prosperous New Year.
The Centre’s 2015 Driver Championship results were published on the website just before Christmas and congratulations to Neil Lock, overall champion and Charlotte Withers, Ladies Champion. The class winners were:
- Class 1: Vintage, MMM, S,V & W – Jeremy Hawke MG J2

The Mike Hawke Trophy for younger members goes to Oliver Lock and the Marshals Trophy to Simon Lott.
The awards will be presented at the Annual Dinner and Awards Evening at the Limpley Stoke Hotel near Bath on February 27 2016. Details of how to order and pay for your meals are on the website.
The events calendar for 2016 is being finalised and all being well will be published on the website soon.
It is always a great disappointment that we do not get larger attendances at the events we put on (last year’s MGs on grass autotest only had six entrants). The South West Centre has approximately 1,200 members and covers quite a large area, so the committee has decided to invite the Natter leaders from the South West to Bristol to discuss what they would like to see in their own area. This is planned for sometime in January, therefore if you have any good ideas about events you would like to take part in, or venues you would like an organised run to, then let your Natter leaders know and we will see if something can be arranged.
