11sep8:00 pm10:30 pmClub Night - Roger Nathan Talk

Event Details

We are pleased to welcome a guest speaker for our first club night following the summer break. Roger started his motor racing career aged 17 and raced between 1961 to 1970, becoming the youngest winner of the coveted National British Autosport Championship at 20 in a Lotus Elite in 1963 before embarking on a highly successful 1964 season in a Brabham BT8 Climax.

Roger Nathan also became the leading Hillman Imp conversion specialist, pushing Mini from the rostrum. He went on to meet the renowned aerodynamics expert Frank Costin, and together they produced the highly successful Costin-Nathan (C-N) series of sports racing cars. An entry with the prototype C-N in the international Coupes de Paris at the Montlhery Autodrome resulted in the lone C-N beating the might of the works Fiat Abarth’s.

When he retired from racing aged 27, Nathan held a total of 29 international lap records, more than any other British driver. He gained most of these driving his own cars manufactured in North London.

From 8pm for an 8.30pm talk start.
