I am sending this mid-month update to let you know events changes as well as letting you know of an opportunity for DB11 5.2 litre V12 owners to add 30 bhp to your cars' power output. 


Spring Concours, Loseley Park

It has been decided to cancel the Spring Concours on 4-6 June.  This decision has been forced by the location being very close to the present outbreak of the South African variant and the area is currently under severe lockdown.

The plan is currently to organise a replacement and AMOC are already in very positive discussions with Bonhams regarding the Club Day.  They are looking to arrange around a "bare bones" Club Day where the Club will offer a location for members to drive to but make it clear of the need to bring everything needed the day as there will be no vendors offering coffee or burgers. There will be no Champagne tent or shop. All members will have to be entirely self-sufficient except that toilets will be available.

Rather than a concours it will likely offer an opportunity to meet, suitably socially distanced, old friends and meet new friends and be a "Club Run Out" venue to which we can arrange the route alone or with Area friends.


Curborough Track Sprint Taster Day

The date for this day has been moved to 20th May.

 

British GT & F3 Championships, Oulton Park

This event has been rescheduled to 11-12th September.

 

DB11 upgrade offer

Stratstone Aston Martin in Wilmslow have now given me the details how to get the DB11 AMR Power Upgrade to increasing the power by an additional 30bhp.  This re-map brings extra acoustic drama and takes performance to the same output as the DB11 AMR.
