A small group of The Clifton Club's Petrolheads couldn't resist hopping on a flight to Dusseldorf this Spring to visit the world's biggest classic car show, Techno Classica Essen.
There was plenty of opportunity over the three day trip to visit the delightful Ruhr village of Kettwig and to acclimatise to the excellent local beer and food. With 14 halls and 2,500 cars to view, a mere five hours were spent admiring some of the finest classic cars to be seen anywhere and many were for sale. No Petrolheads made any purchases this time however, despite much temptation!

General knowledge of the motoring world was put to the test as 28 'quizzers' pitted their wits in the Petrolheads Quiz on the 22nd February. Gavin Hill's excellent 60 questions were wide ranging covering topics from cars in films, production, the highway code and famous motoring quotes. No team sat back and put on their cruise control as a great competitive spirit ensued and the final scores across the board were very respectable. The three highest teams all took home prizes and congratulations go to the winning team 'Williams' lead by Neville Hall. Pictures of the event are available to view in our Online Gallery.

Our annual Burns Night Celebration Dinner always proves to be a popular night and this year was no acception. The event was fully attended and guests were welcomed to the party by a piper and plenty of Burns prose. The star of the stunning four course dinner was without a doubt the haggis, traditional paraded through the room to great applause. There are some wonderful pictures of the evening in the gallery.

Following the success of the Christmas Fair in 2015, the events committee repeated the event for 2016. There were a number of stall holders selling a variety of goods, giving Members the opportunity to buy Christmas gifts for family and friends. The event also helped us to raise over £1000 for our nominated charity, The Marmalade Trust. We would very much like to say thank you to everyone who helped to make the Fair such a success.
