THE TEAMSVeteran Car Run Steering Group
I inherited my interest in cars from my father who purchased his first veteran, a 1904 2-cylinder Norfolk, in 1953, adding a 1902 4-cylinder Napier in 1979. Taking part in the Veteran Car Run as a passenger through my childhood, my brother and I entered as drivers for the first time on the Centenary Run in 1996 and have been regular participants with these two family cars ever since. More recently we have added two single cylinder 1900 French cars – a Renault and a Phebus – in the hope that our children will also enter in the years to come.
An accountant by training and with a career in financial services, I am the Treasurer of the Veteran Car Club of Great Britain (VCC) and a member of their Executive Committee. I therefore have a particular interest in the costs and financial viability of the Run and would like to ensure it remains a cornerstone of the veteran motoring year for VCC members.
Aside from veteran motoring I have a 1936 AC, a 1939 Derby Bentley and a Pioneer Run 1910 Rex motorcycle.
