|THE BEXHILL 100 CLASSIC CAR CLUB
10th ANNIVERSARY AND ELVA ‘SPECTACULAR’
The south coast town of Bexhill-on-Sea is recognised as the Birthplace of British Motor Racing having hosted the first recorded race in 1902. Bexhill is also celebrated as the origin of ‘Elva Engineering’ having been the home town of Frank Nichols who built up the talented and enthusiastic team that designed and produced the cars. You all know that the Elva story started at the London Road Garage in Bexhill.
The Bexhill 100 Classic Car Club is inviting ALL owners, drivers and enthusiasts of the Elva marque to come to the annual and very successful gathering of classic cars on the August Bank Holiday Monday being:
This would be an ideal opportunity to see the stunning ELVA-CLIMAX Mk.III which has been so carefully rebuilt by a dedicated small team which included original Elva team members and the highly skilled bodywork craftsmen. Representatives of the BEXHILL MUSEUM will be showing their prized acquisition which has just been completed and really does “GO”!
We do understand that Bank Holiday events abound and that often people have many other commitments, but it would be great to put together a really special display of the various Elva model types built over the years to include the Sports Racers, the Formula Juniors and the different Couriers.
It is a big ‘ask’ but long overdue as we have not had such a gathering in the UK since the ‘50th’ meeting at Mallory Park. If anyone from across the Pond has promised themselves that they MUST get to the Goodwood Revival, that stupendous event is being held just a couple of weeks after Polgrove, so make a fantastic double whammy of a trip while the US Dollar is strong! I expect questions so please make contact and at least give this event your careful consideration and most importantly your support. It will be a fun day and a very special occasion.
Thank you and I look forward to seeing you there.
