HICKSTEAD, THE ALL ENGLAND SHOWJUMPING COURSE - Saturday 25 August 2001

After entering the showground via the private entrance we parked, this year, on the River Lawn quite close to the main arena. This grassland area is usually used for equine ridden and in-hand classes but is also most suitable for displaying our motor cars and for picnics. Almost one hundred members and friends arrived in thirty Club cars on a day that turned out to be the hottest for many years. There was a lot to see around the showground in addition to the showjumping classes. In the afternoon we were invited to parade some of our Club cars in the International Arena. The cavalcade included most of the models from Silver Ghost to Bentley Brooklands and after two laps each driver was presented with a special Hickstead rosette. Our grateful thanks to Hickstead for inviting us for the day, which was enjoyed by all taking part.
