Despite the weather last Saturday, sufficient members did brave the snows that hit the Midlands to ensure that the AGM could go ahead. We are pleased to report that all resolutions were passed with an overwhelming majority, and so it is with great pleasure that we welcome Angela Perkins to her new role as National Events Manager and bid farewell to Pietro who retires after nearly 20 years on the Committee.
We were also pleased to present the annual club awards, including the Trevor Wilkinson Trophy to Ian Renwick for hs stunning 3000M.

It is being reported today in the motoring press that TVR is on the brink of an re-launch with a new model (possibly a revised Sagaris?) powered by a US crated V8. Talk suggests that this car will produce in excess of 500BHP, will cost in the region of £70K, be built in Germany and will be launched at the Goodwood Festival of Speed. This is indeed exciting news if it is true, although regrettably we are unable to confirm this. We will bring you further news if or when we receive it.
May we take this opportunity to wish a Happy New Year to all our members and TVR enthusiasts and to thank everyone who helped make the TVRCC one of the very best car clubs in the world. You will all be pleased to know that plans for 2010 are already well underway and we will be announcing these both here and in Sprint as soon as they are confirmed.
Sadly no silverware for the TVRCC this year - but we are very pleased to report that the Club website, www.tvrcc.com, was awarded runner up in the Best Website (over 5000 members) category. Thanks to all of our contributors and especially to our webmaster, Paul Calland and all his team at Treble3 for their help in achieving this. Well done also to Steve Guest and his team of merry men (and women) from the WWM region who have put on yet another fantastic stand this year. If you haven't been, the show is open tomorrow from 10.00am.
