September newsletter

August is nearly over, and the weather again has not been in favour of open top motoring.

August is nearly over, and the weather again has not been in favour of open top motoring.

Luckily, for our Shobdon airfield visit the sun came out which made the event an enjoyable day, with the opportunity of eating outside.

Twenty members turned out in 15 cars, with 5 cars starting from Llandovery and another 11 cars from Merthyr Tydfil. 

We were given a talk about the airfield of its usage during the WW2 used as a glider base. John Lord from R13  joined in and gave a  talk of how he started the flying school at the base. We were also joined by  Alan Hawkins from R31 who's father was involved with the base.

Geraint Thomas who used to be the deputy after sales manager at Porsche Cardiff is now the senior flight instructor at the base. I would like to thank him for behalf of the region in assisting in setting up the visit and to be one of the hosts during the day for our visit.

Members cars lined up at the airfield.

Porsche Centre Cardiff Car Clinic

I have been in discussion with Martin Wright in proposing a Porsche car clinic for our members for the 7th October. This will be open up to 20 cars.

Before this is fully finalised, I would like to know how many members are interested, There is no point in Martin arranging the technicians to attend, unless there are sufficient numbers interested.

Let us help you unlock the potential of your Porsche
