CLUBS TAKE THE PULSE OF
Massive new survey follows Expo 2016 at British Motor Museum
Meeting of minds
Club Expo, held at the British Motor Museum on 19 March, brought together some of the sharpest minds in the classic industry. It’s where club representatives breathe new life into classics through workshops and seminars designed to improve and promote our hobby.
It encourages people to network together to gain crucial contacts, pick up hints and tips or simply meet other representatives to help make their club a success.
This year’s Expo consisted of eight seminar/workshops, each repeated four times over the day, plus trade stands. Attendance was good and all interviewed were very enthusiastic, saying they had not only learned a lot but made valuable contacts for the future.
That’s why the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC) chose Club Expo 2016 as the launch pad for its most ambitious survey yet (see right).
Expo organiser Simon Carr says: ‘Bringing clubs together can only strengthen the movement. I’m proud Gaydon can play a philanthropic role in helping clubs and the classic car world function efficiently and safely.’
