Bourne Motor Racing Club kicked off its 20th year in style on Thursday, January 8, when the motoring journalist and racing driver Tiff Needell entertained members.

Speaking in front of a capacity audience of 220 people, Tiff spoke passionately about how his motor racing career began, and about his experiences working with Murray Walker and Nigel Mansell. He also reflected upon his time as a journalist, working alongside Jeremy Clarkson and Quentin Willson in the early days of Top Gear, and more recently with Jason Plato and Vicki-Butler Henderson in Channel 5’s Fifth Gear.

The club’s steering committee member Richard Bostock said: “Never before have we seen so many people at one of our club nights, and this shows as a testament of Tiff’s popularity, both with motoring fans and the general public alike.

“We’re really grateful of the support of both Tiff Needell and compere Tracie Hughes, and the event acted as a great way to start Bourne Motor Racing Club’s 20th year.”
