It has been decided  not hold a Dimer Dance due to costs and also COVID as many are still concerned about being in doors in close proximity to people  and  with current figures testing

positive for COVID so high.  For the safety of all it has been decided to have a casual  social evening  in the restaurant and bar  if staying over and then hold a Christmas event in a hotel

later in the year when hopefully  things are a little more settled.

50th Anniversary of Panther Cars

“HOW IT ALL BEGAN”

 

Robert Jankel, Car Designer and Engineer
Born London 1 January 1938 - died Weybridge,
Surrey 25 May 2005
Married 1962 to Jennifer Loss
(daughter of bandleader Joe Loss –had three sons, one daughter)

Cars with six wheels are uncommon. The most famous is the pink Rolls-Royce owned by Lady Penelope Creighton-Ward in the 1960s television puppet show Thunderbirds. Robert Jankel went one better than these fantasy machines - he created the 1977 Panther Six actually to be driven on the road. The outrageous two-seater roadster was the showstopper of London's 1977 Motorfair, flashed across global television screens because it was said to do 200mph.

The book written by Bruno Eismark “The Cars Built By PANTHER“

  • As the event is scheduled for the August bank holiday weekend, the track and entertainment timetable will be extended on Sunday.

DVLA Release New Laws on Black & White Number Plates

 

The DVLA have announced changes concerning information on black and silver number plates which will take effect from 1 January 2021.

The changes being introduced on 1 January 2021 will affect the ability of vehicles registered in the historic tax class to display the old style pre-1973 black and silver number plates.

Following the change in definition of a historic vehicle for vehicle tax exemption purposes in 2015, an issue was identified in the regulatory requirements for the valid display of a black and silver number plate. This resulted in an unintended consequence where any vehicle over 40 years old and registered in the historic tax class would be permitted to display an old style black and silver number plate. This was despite the law previously requiring all vehicles first registered after 1 January 1973 to only display the yellow and white number plates with black characters.

As this was never the intention, DVLA have sought to rectify this through a legal correction which will shortly be implemented. The change seeks to prevent any vehicle constructed after 1 January 1980 from the ability to display the black and silver number plate despite being recorded in the DVLA’s historic tax class. Those vehicles with a construction date prior to 1 January 1980 will continue to be able to legally display black and silver number plates to avoid any undue costs of replacement.

Also note that from 1 January it will no longer be permissible to fix a new number plate displaying a Euro symbol. Number plates already fixed to vehicles are unaffected. DVLA will also be introducing a new British Standard for number plates produced from 1 September 2021 which will mean all current style number plates that are first fixed to a vehicle from that date must meet the technical requirements contained in that standard.
