BB News May - June 2011

BB News is the bulletin board of the BrmmBrmm Classic Network. If your club would like to use this space to raise awareness of a club event or item of interest, please email

With the hottest Easter since many of us can remember, I hope you have been taking advantage of the longer days and fine weather, getting out and about in your own Classic, and letting that warm Spring breeze with that tantalizing promise of summer days blow through your hair!

Of course this being the time of year when the “event season” is soon to be well underway, please do take yourselves out for a spin – and don’t forget to tell us what you’ve been up to – photographic evidence especially would be very much appreciated and we’d be happy to feature your latest escapades within our News bulletins.

There are lots of events planned in these next two months, as the weather continues to improve and the season gets into its stride. Fancy the Norfolk Mini Day at Fakenham Racecourse? See the Forthcoming Events section for more details. Or perhaps a trip to Blackpool - The British Heart Foundation is holding a Charity Classic Vehicle Show in Blackpool on the 18th June – to name but a few!
