    A group of Fellows and their guests were privileged to spend a fascinating morning with the legendary Jaguar Chief Test Development Engineer and race team driver Norman Dewis.

    The Tony Jennings Classic Car Show, in memory of our past President and much respected industry figure, was again held at BEN’s Care Centre, Town Thorns, near Rugby on Sunday 6th August. The event also included a Fete organised by BEN and made for a wonderful spectacle in the lovely grounds of Town Thorns. The weather was very kind to us, which makes all the difference, and FMI members enjoyed much fun and fellowship in and around our Marquee. A fabulous cold buffet was served at lunchtime, enjoyed by nearly 30 fellows and friends, and was washed down by a few Pimm’s!

    What better on a fine summer's day than meet up with FMI colleagues and friends to raise a glass and take lunch. This was the case on Wednesday 14th June, 2017. Numbers were only 14 due unfortunate illness, but a number said they preferred the smaller intimate gathering. Quite a few jokes and stories of past motor trade experiences were shared around the table. Everyone went home happy particularly those who won raffle prizes. The whole event raised £285 for FMI funds
