SNOC Branch at the Warlingham Classic Car & Bike Show, 16 July 2023

Surrey Branch at the Warlingham Rugby Club, Classic Car & Bike Show, 16 July 2023

The Surrey branch represented the NOC at the WRC Classic Car and Bike Show this year, which was an out standing event, as it always is. This is year number eight for this show, the event had some thing for every one to go and see,  to experience and to enjoy. The event is also proudly supporting many local charities for which a suggested charity donation of £3 was asked for. One of the charities was the Stroke Association, which is a very worthwhile charity to support, as many of us, will know of some one who has suffered and has been afflicted from this medical condition. The show also has many local sponsors, and affiliates for this show. The Surrey branch has often given a group donation for these charities from us all.

The event is organised by Steve Wakeman who has a very dedicated and truly efficient team of coordinators and helpers. The weather could not have been better, for this event, with so many stunning and beautiful cars and bikes attending.

The Surrey branch had nine Norton’s on display with a huge amount of interest from the show going public to this event. The bikes had display boards out with the bikes, with relevant information displayed out in the front of them. Graham Holcombe and Bill Plummer were there early at 7.45am, with Simon Smith, Dave Brown, Dave Cooper, and Ken Rawlinson arriving later. Simon as with out his trailer we would not have a stand to erect brought along all the equipment for the Surrey branch stand. The weather was very windy, so arrangements had to be made to make sure the gazebo was held down securely, so it would not lift off and get blown away. The gazebo was taken down early due to the very strong winds that prevailed at that time. Our members were holding onto the gazebo, as the wind picked up to stop to being blown away. The Surrey branch stand was later featured on the heading pages of the NOC web site. Ken Rawlinson won the best bike award for his Triton

Those members that brought along their bikes for the show were as follows

Phil Hannam 1962 framed 1961 Manxman 650cc

Robert Tuck 1960 600cc Dominator 99 Deluxe

Dave Brown 1958 Dominator 99 600cc café racer

The next WRC car and bike show with be held next year on Sunday 14 July 2024

Can I thank all those that came along and made this event for the Surrey branch such a success for us all? Our stand really stood out from all the other clubs that came along for this show.
