Gloucestershire

Some of our members at Reims en route (that is yer actual French) to Italy in 2013.

Gloucestershire is one of England’s larger counties, bordering Wales and the River Severn in the West and running from just North of Bristol in the South to the Cotswold towns of Moreton-in-Marsh in the North and Cirencester in the East. In between are some great roads, Prescott hillclimb course (near Cheltenham) and Caterham specialists Millwood, just outside Dursley, and run by the ever-helpful Jon Vicker.

From January 2018 the Glos 7’s guys will be meeting up at The Bathurst Arms GL7 7BZ (http://www.bathurstarms.co.uk/) on the 1st Thursday of each month at 7.30pm. The pub has a warm welcome, good food, a fine selection of wines and ales, log fires and best of all is located on one of the great driving roads around Cheltenham. Come the summer months there's a delightful riverside beer garden where we can drink and spin tales of daring do in the 7.

As an area we are a pretty active bunch as can be seen from the Events page of the website, enjoying various outings far and wide, as well as a series of blats and away trips throughout the blatting season. We have a series of prepared blatting routes which we'll be posting on our blog pages, and quite often set up an impromptu blat through the Cotswolds and Wales. We also welcome partners at all our events (and no, they don't have to know which end of a camshaft is which) and many attend our monthly meet too. Much as we love our 7s, we also recognise that life is more than that too.

Competition-wise we've tended to favour sprints with Andy Couchman, being a class winner at the Brighton Speed Trials with his trusty 1988 crossflow engined car. We also have an increasing number of trackday drivers with trips to UK and Continental circuits.

We're a friendly bunch and welcome new members so do drop in and join us. Any queries, please email [email protected]
