It is hoped that in the coming years we will be able to organise an Annual Reunion or equivalent event.
The 8th Reunion of the Association will be held on Saturday 19th November 2022 in The Radstone Hotel, Ayr Road, Larkhall, ML9 2TZ.
We are proud to announce that one of our own, John Cleland, will be our guest speaker.
John is a retired British racing driver best known not only for winning the British Touring Car Championship in 1989 and 1995, but also for the controversial last round incident which denied him the 1992 championship. He is also known for his very entertaining repartee.
Entry to the event is open to Members only up until the 1st of June 2022.
After that if there are any spaces left the entry will be open to guests.
The cost of the event will be £45. There are a few rooms reserved for the VSMA in the Hotel at £85BB for a single and £100BB for a double room for those who may wish to stay over. There are a few more Hotels in the vicinity.
