Outgoing VSCC President Paul Tunnicliffe has announced his replacement will be Simon Blakeney-Edwards. From a dyed-in-the-wool VSCC family, Simon grew up around vintage cars and has held positions on the VSCC board and Eligibility Committee. After 20 years as a professional musician he founded Edwards Motorsport in 2000, specialising in Frazer Nash and GN motor cars. Along with his wife Jo, he is a regular competitor in most disciplines of VSCC motorsport, and in the last few years, he has been lending his cars to the younger generation who are not in a financial position to buy their own. He would like to encourage other older members to do the same. “It has given me just as much pleasure watching my cars being driven with skill and responsibility by various younger members as it does when I’m driving them myself. We need the youth if our club is going to continue successfully,” he said. He will assume his new role at the end of April from the close of the Club’s AGM.
