Past Meeting

An Evening with Nick Thorne

  • Date
    22th May 2008
  • Place
    Chemistry Research Laboratory (CRL), South Parks Rd, Oxford, OX13TA

Nick has spent a lifetime in the Motor Industry. He has worked with BMW, the RAC and Jaguar and is also a former rally driver. Hes owned an interesting selection of cars - weve pictured some of them here.

We heard about Nicks exploits and learned about Tulips (the charts that is). You never know when you will be going on a run and will need to know all about it!

Tulip Charts

Tulip charts are the recognised method of navigation for rallying - however, they are also used for lots of runs and tours.

This will be an interactive evening where you get to try your hand at one. Start at the start point and see if you finish up at the right place at the end!! This will be a nice summer evening (!) so please bring a classic if you can - lets see if we can make a nice display.
