Important update

As we have used Dunsley Hall for a few years now, I am delighted to say they have agreed  to carry the Event and plans forward to next year, similar date.  Thus they will keep the deposit and put it against 2021.
The Hotel will honour the payments made by entrants for room bookings, moving  the booking forward to the 2021 Event.    However, if they wish to cancel and receive a refund, then this is equally acceptable, and will be dealt with by the Ho  tel and themselves.    It will not mean that their booking will be carried forward if they opt to accept a refund.
Note:  Due to the current crisis, the phone lines are not manned daily, butyou may leave a telephone message.

LAC Member Brian Redman Inaugurated into Hall of Fame

Brian Redman started his motor racing career competing at Lancashire Automobile Club events at Woodvale near Southport. He progressed through the racing formula with great success all the way to Formula 5000 (competing in Chevrons) and Formula 1 before conentrating on Sports cars including the fantastic Porsche 917.

Brians greatest success was in the Can Am Series in the States and it is probaly this successwhich ultimatley saw him nominated to the Motor Sport Hall of Fame for the Sports Car Class.

Brian has now been inaugurated into the Motor Sport Hall of Fame (many thanks to all the LAC members who voted for him), please find in our pictures gallery a couple of pictures of the celebratory evening.

The group photograph shows Brian with other recipients including, amongst others, Dave Richards (a previous LAC Motor Sport Luncheon principle guest), Nigel Mansell (1992 F1 World Champion & 1993 Indy Car Champion), and the voice of Motor Sport, the legendary Murray Walker.

What a picture showing a proud moment in the history of the Lancashire Automobile Club.
