Area 00 September Update

Area 00 Rep | Published on 9/7/2020


September 2020 Update

It’s been another busy month, having recently returned from a truly amazing 2 week Aston driving trip around Portugal with fellow Area00 members Christian and Stephen! 

During the trip we also had the pleasure of catching up with Jose and his delightful David Brown tractor in Alentejo before he headed back to display at the concours d’elegance at Hampton Court Palace, followed by meeting fellow Rep Yousif and Alexander in the Algarve…I would like to thank them all on behalf of Area00 for their time and truly wonderful hospitality… i'm looking forward to returning already!!

Our weekly zoom calls have continued throughout, albeit ‘on the road’…

It was my hope to announce the re-introduction of monthly drinks at the RAC commencing later this month, but based on the Government decision released last night regarding the rule of 6, sadly this will now have to be delayed until further notice…

This past weekend we headed on our annual Serpentine to Snowdonia run, which was a delight with a fantastic group!

Earlier this month it was a pleasure to catch up with John in London over dinner who was back from Seoul to collect his DB2 together with Matt, and it was such a pleasure to see photos of the car last week! im looking forward to joining it on the road very soon..  

I’m also delighted to confirm our Annual Club Crawl Black Tie Christmas Dinner will be held on the 17th December 2020 in the Library at the Reform Club on Pall Mall. The Club’s concert grand Steinway is being tuned specially with Tom at the helm as last year, so I for one am looking forward to celebrating the end of 2020 and new hopes for 2021! Further details will follow in due course, but please drop me a line if you are interested in joining what promises to be a very special evening.. i'm hoping by Christmas Boris will be able to relax the rule of 6, but we will see I guess!

Later this month we look forward to attending Salon Prive at Blenheim which i'm excited to join in the V8 Volante.., assuming all proceeds as planned!! I look forward to seeing some of you there!

I've attached a few photo highlights from our Portugal and Snowdonia adventures!
