Hi mch.
I am a member of the WBCVC but didn't get any correspondence about this event. Thanks for altering me to the event, which I have attended in past years. I will probably attend this year but may have to re-schedule a few things.
I see you are Hampshire based. I live in St Mary Bourne, between Andover and Newbury and own a early Interceptor MkII. Where are you based?
I am also the Joint Southern Area Rep and would be delighted if you would like to attend our forthcoming meetings.

Hi Mike
I've spoken to a rep from the West Berks Classic Vehicle Club and there is no "Drive it day" event being held at the West Berks Brewery this Sunday. Could you have picked up on some old information?

Yes, many apologies, perhaps I saw the advert for previous year drive it day... Sorry to get the hopes up!

Probably take the car out anyway...

Phil, sorry I never answered your comment about club meetings in the southern area - many thanks for the invitation!

You may recall that I attended a couple of meetings in summer 2019, as a new member? At that time I had just bought my car, a lovely Interceptor Mk III, and it was being fettled at Cropredy Bridge. The car was back on the road in late 2019, but since the pandemic began there has been no opportunity to meet up with the club members again. I'm looking forward to rectifying that situation in the very near future.

Hi Mike
Sorry I didn't put the name and car together. Your from Silcester/Tadley area if I remember correctly. Hopefully we will soon have some Southern area events to attend.
