Bude Motor Club
We are a small friendly club situated in Bude, North Cornwall. All our members share a common interest in all types, varieties and ages of motorised vehicles. Membership is free so come along to one of our meetings and join up! Meetings are informal and are held on the first Wednesday of each month. The meeting is set to be held at the Bude golf club, at 7:30 for 8pm start. The meeting will last around 1 hour.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Norman Dewis 1920-2019
Norman Dewis, who developed the Jaguar C-type, D-type and E-type, has died. In his 33-year Jaguar career, he covered a quarter of a million miles at more than 100mph
Norman was a great friend and supporter of Bude Motor Club, and many of us will remember the entertaining and informative talk he gave us at the Bullers Arms some years ago to a packed house. One of life's true gentlemen. You can read more about Normans' fantastic career on the Motor Sport Magazine website.

A big 'thank you' to everyone who helped at our Classic Show this year,( Marshalls, both traffic and field), Thanks to all our sponsors, thanks to Bude Rugby Club for letting us use the field, and also thanks to the public who turned up on the day, the show would not happen without you, and thanks to anyone I've not mentioned.
This was our biggest show so far with around 656 vehicles of all varieties including bikes ,
The Bude Scouts made somewhere close to £2500, Which they will be putting this towards their trip to Sweden to meet other scout groups .
We know that many of you were concerned when it became apparent that Bude Motor Club members Alan Hawkins (A.J.Motor services) and Colin Stretton (Colin's Garage) were taking a new direction in life, Alan taking semi-retirement and Colin having to close his popular premises in Kilkhampton. They had always offered great local service to all our members and had a specialist knowledge and aptitude for Classic Car repairs and refurbishment.
But worry no more! Colin has closed his garage in Kilkhampton and relocated to the A.J.Motor Services premises in Bude on the Petherick Mill Industrial Estate. This much enlarged garage, is now complete with MOT facilities and state of the art diagnostic equipment for all of our needs. The new Bude business has taken on the 'Colin's Garage' name. Why not pay them a visit and see the set-up for yourself?
Colin is also offering a generous discount to all genuine BMC members on production of a current membership card, so make sure you get a quote there first!
"In June 2016 we moved Colin’s Garage from Kilkhampton where we had been based for six and a half years. Colin Stretton and team have taken over A J Motor Services at Pethericks Mill. They now bring over 50 years of combined expertise to Bude. Colin’s Garage is modern yet built on traditional values and service. Colin’s Garage is the one stop shop for all repairs in Bude, North Cornwall.
Pop in and talk to Colin, or any of the team to discuss any problems or concerns you have with your car, van or light commercial vehicle. We are here to help.
