Buried in a Shed? A talk by Henry Cole.

A Buffet Supper and evening talk by Henry Cole, known for his ‘Shed and Buried’ and ‘Find-it, Fix-it’ TV Programmes. Henry has kindly offered to do a talk for Friends, which will cover his interesting family background and the challenges he overcame in his formative years. He is a passionate advocate of mechanical things and tinkering. He is also a successful film maker and broadcaster, motorcycle manufacturer and holder of a Bonneville Salt Flats speed record on a Brough Superior!

Le Mans and me – a talk by Andy Wallace. 

A Buffet Supper and evening talk by Andy Wallace, probably best known as a Le Mans driver in the Silk Cut Jaguar Team and more recently for Team Bentley. For 11 years he held the record setting speed of 240.14mph in a McLaren F1, then the world’s fastest production car. He is now the Official Customer Demonstration Driver for Bugatti SAS. He thus has a wealth of racing experience and with a unique insight of life at Molsheim and will surely give us an evening to remember! What better way to spend an autumnal evening, listening to one of the most accomplished Le Mans drivers and to learn more about the latest Bugatti Divo.

Cancelled due to Andy not being available. We are trying to reorganise the talk for another time.
