Wednesday 19th June will see a spectacular array of cars on the Cedar lawn at Woodcote Park for our annual Drive-In event. In 1913 the Club purchased the estate for use as a country club, to offer outdoor pursuits, but also because it was too difficult for members to hold large car gatherings in Central London. The original mansion built by John Evelyn in the 17th Century was destroyed by fire on 1st August 1934 and re-built in 1936.
On 27th July 1963 a very special car gathering took place, to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Club at Woodcote Park, presided over by Lord Mountbatten, Club President.
The cavalcade to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of the Club at Woodcote Park included veteran, vintage and modern cars that encapsulated the Club’s motoring history. Two of the most illustrious vehicles included a Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost and the reigning Formula 1 Championship car, a BRM which sadly had to be paraded on the back of a truck!
