Jul16-17Yorkshire Elegance

The Austin Healey Club has once again been invited to display our cars at the Yorkshire Elegance on their Ladies and Revival day, Tue/Wed, 16th/17th July 2024. This year the YE has moved to Grantly Hall, Ripon, HG4 3ET, for a grander affair and now has even more prestigious car clubs, sponsors and displays than ever before. For full event details please visit: https://thefastlaneclub.com/yorkshire-elegance

You will have seen in March’s Revcounter that the AHC National Concours is also taking place at Yorkshire Elegance on Wed 17th July so this is a great opportunity to enter and display your car on the very best lawns north of Watford and to mix with the most exclusive cars in the country outside the London Salon Privé. The overall AHC Concours winner will be entered into the YE Concours competition. Entry to the AHC National Concours is via the National AHC website.

The Northern Centre has secured 10 Austin Healey places on each day with tickets for two occupants. We are charging £15 pp which will allow us to buy additional tickets and enter even more cars. We are aiming to display cars across the range of marques within the club and we are now looking for cars to represent the club. Attendees will need to have the car on stand for the full day: 10am-5pm and we expect to be oversubscribed so whilst we will make every effort to get you in on the day that you would like, we may not be able to display every car that applies and you may have to be flexible on dates to help planning.

To register your interest, please contact Jeff Hollinshead giving your name, car type, reg, occupant details and preferred day of attendance. Further details in the Event Calendar.

In addition, the AHC has a discount of 10% off the following Yorkshire Elegance entry tickets/packages:

  • General Admission for day 1 & 2
  • VIP Hospitality on Day 1 & 2
  • Driving Tour
  • Finale Dinner
  • Gold Package (full 3 day event package & includes entry to the main concours)

Buy your tickets directly from the Yorkshire Elegance website above and use the discount code found in the National Website Members' Area (login required).

Jul26-28Oulton Park Gold Cup

Oulton Park’s signature Historic Gold Cup returns with a full weekend’s action devoted to motor racing’s past in July. The meeting will feature an eclectic retro race programme, overseen by the Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC), with several special guest series in attendance too.

This year’s HSCC offering will include Historic Formula 3, Historic Formula Junior and the Derek Bell Trophy for powerful 1970s single-seaters. Special guest categories include the Historic Grand Prix Car Association, Motor Racing Legends Touring Car Challenge, Cooper 500 Owners Association, CSCC Special Saloons and Modsports, Ferrari Club Classic and the Vintage Sports-Car Club.

The traditional summer fixture will be much more than a race event though, with an extensive off-track show to put visitors in a retro mood. Car displays, retro music and more will add to the distinct flavour of this key social fixture on Cheshire’s automotive calendar.

Austin Healey Club Northern Centre 'Toolbox'

An initiative has taken to hold a selection of tools that members can borrow, use, and return. The tools are items that members might need for a one-off job where they could not justify purchasing the tool. A page on the Northern Centre website has been created to show the current tools held and how you can borrow them.

The way the 'Toolbox' works is that you visit the website, pick the tool you wish to borrow, fill in a form with your details, pay a deposit (which is refundable) plus the cost of postage and packing and the tool is on its way. After use, you return the tool, and the deposit is returned to you.

The Thames Valley Centre also have a 'Toolbox' and we have a reciprocal arrangement with them where members from either centre can hire tools from both toolboxes. Members of the Northern Centre will need to visit the Thames Valley Centre website to borrow tools from their ‘Toolbox’ and vice versa for the Thames Valley Centre.

The Northern Centre have allocated an annual budget to purchase small tools so as to expand the tools held by the club. If you have any suggestions for a tool that you think members of the club could benefit from being held in our 'Toolbox' please let us know.

To access the 'Toolbox', click Toolbox on the menubar at the top of the page, or click here.
