The CRMC invited the founder members of the club to celebrate its 40th meeting at Snetterton, the venue for the first CRMC meeting and also the 2019 season finale.

Among those attending were co-founder Dick Linton, former chairman Alan Hilton, Eric Kirk who gave the club magazine its name, Classic Racer’s Malc Wheeler, and Simon Morris – who raced at the first CRMC meeting and every year since.

Alan Hilton received advice from Malc Wheeler and Alex George on how to cut the 40th anniversary cake.

Others at the first meeting and still parading with the CRMC are Richard Leeton and Geoff Sullivan.

The poor weather that brought the meeting to an early close also put paid to the lunchtime parade by 40th anniversary guests, but they did enjoy a couple of laps in the course car before tucking into the Snetterton hospitality suite buffet.
