New format at motor club

Weston Motor Club have agreed to a more radical form of club management at the recent annual meeting.

FOLLOWING the recent annual meeting, members of Weston Motor Club agreed to follow a more radical form of club management.

Rather than the traditional club format of a committee making all the decisions, the club have devised a new structure which gives the members a regular say in how the club events are organised.

Club leader Peter Brace said: “The new system of management has been a great success. For months, the old committee struggled to agree on a new venue meeting place, because we had outgrown the village pub. At our first meeting under the new management, members discussed and voted and within 30 minutes had a new venue agreed.”

The club now meet at Ollie’s Caf� on the A38, Brent Knoll, by Sanders Garden World on the first Thursday of the month.

The club continue to promote motor sport and their next event on April 15 is the Sandocross held on the Weston Sands at Uphill. This is a unique event on mainland Britain and has been run annually since 1971. It takes the form of cars racing up to four abreast on a sand circuit and there is a class for road cars, so it is ideal for newcomers to motorsport.
