RO: Dave Wilkins: I was brought up with cars due to them being my Father’s passion. He was an engineer in REME during the Second World War maintaining vehicles and planes in India and Burma. After the war he joined the family baking business looking after the various delivery vehicles including Jowett and Bradford vans. He had a very early Morgan 4/4 probably Climax engined but this was changed for a Wolseley 10 when I came along! Some of my earliest memories are of ‘helping’ him change tyres and replace brake linings and going to Belle Vue in Manchester to watch the ‘Stock Car’ racing which he had a go at for a little while. Unfortunately when I was 9 he was killed in a Wolseley 4/44 in a head-on collision with a drunken driver.

It was 10 years later before my interest in cars was rekindled when, old enough to drive, my best mate (and subsequently ‘Best Man’) and me decided to swap pedal-power for horse-power, of the petrol variety of course! Being mates we decided that we would both get Mk1 Sprites and spent much time modifying and refurbishing them and we were hooked. My mate still has his ‘Frogeye’. After fighting the rust worm that kept eating away at the Sprite I decided that the future lay in glass-fibre and bought a Climax-engined Lotus Elite (wish I still had that!!). A couple of Lotus Elans followed and then a Scimitar GTE when the family came along. This heralded a period in the wilderness of financial pressures, home, family and company cars until the children left home.

Following redundancy I became a self-employed consultant and being fortunate to find full-time work quite quickly the remainder of my redundancy pay-off was burning a hole in my pocket. I was still a sports car and glass-fibre fan preferring nuts and bolts to welding and filler and so the obvious choices were alphabetically Lotus, Marcos and TVR. I felt that I’d really done with Lotus and was considering a Marcos until I tried a Chimaera, I was hooked. A beautiful Toucan yellow 500 with dark blue hood and upholstery caught my eye and a deal was soon done!

The previous practice of fettling and updating soon came into play and then a track day at Oulton Park brought about the realisation that there was another itch to be scratched. I thought that a little bit of competitive activity might be good and so I entered the world of sprints and hillclimbs with the TVR Sprint Championship in which I continue to compete and enjoy. Regular competition has meant that the Chimaera has gradually become more and more tuned to sprinting and hillclimbing, and less to touring, as well as picking up a few scrapes!

Once bitten the bug bites deep and it seems that what many TVR owners want once they have a TVR is another one, and I am no different! As intimated above the Chimaera was gradually moving towards being a track car and a Cerbera had appealed for a while so in 2009 a 1999 Sage Green ‘Speed 6’ was added to the stable. This is pampered and kept for ‘high days and holidays’ and is a very different driving experience to the Chimaera!

I have been a member of TVRCC since first acquiring the Chimaera in 2003 and attended many meetings and events both regionally and nationally over the years and admired the effort which many members put into serving the Club on a regular basis. Having taken advantage of other peoples’ efforts I thought it time that I gave something in return which resulted in me becoming RO for the region with the longest name in the Club!
