Peking to Paris - Talk by Sir John Stuttard

At New Remembrance Hall

Charlton SP7 0PL

In 1907 an adventurous group of motoring enthusiasts set off on the first race from Peking to Paris, and what an adventure it was, driving through many countries, some of which had barely seen a motor car.

In 1997 a new group met at Brooklands, and determined to repeat the run. This talk follows John Stuttard’s progress in a 1934 Rolls Royce painted in FT pink, among an assortment of other cars, all of which had to be over 30 years old.

Some way through the race, the organisers decided that the modern roads were just a little too tame, so they toughened up the rules. Just a bit.

See and hear John’s entertaining account of how it all happened, by coming to the New Remembrance Hall on Saturday 22nd June!

Tickets cost £10 (£5 for those in FTE) and include canapes, are available from Jane Hill (828279) or Elizabeth Campbell (828201). The usual bar and Fine Wine Raffle will be there.
