THE BUGATTI TRUST – A new programme of talks

The Bugatti Trust Museum & Study Centre is announcing a new programme of motoring talks.  There’s limited availablity – so you’re encouraged to book soon.

The upcoming talks are all at the Bugatti Trust HQ at Prescott (see below for full details, prices and how to book).

This is the new programme:

John Barton: ‘Bugatti – The last 20 years’ – 12.00 noon on Sunday 8th April.

In the 20 years between 1919 and 1939, Ettore Bugatti, later assisted by his very able son Jean Bugatti, designed, built and sold almost 8,000 cars.  However, during the last 20 years of the Bugatti company (1943-1963), Ettore Bugatti and then later Roland Bugatti assembled and sold 7 cars, using pre-war parts and to a 20-year-old design. How and why could this have come about?

James Randle: A lecture on his career and projects – 6.00 pm on Thursday 24th May.

James Randle has had a long and distinguished career in the motor industry which included 27 years at Jaguar. One of his most famous projects was the Jaguar XJ220 and he was closely involved with the development of the Series III E-type as well as responsible for significant new designs and patents.

Nigel McKnight: ‘Quicksilver World Water Speed Record Boat’ – Friday 21st September – more details to follow.

Paul Fowler of the Enstone Flying Club: ‘The Spitfire’ – Sunday 21st October – more details to follow.

Ticket Price is £25 per person per event, and will include a seated meal as well as a Q&A opportunity. The Bugatti Trust has started taking bookings so please don’t miss the opportunity to purchase your ticket and join them in what promises to be a series of educational and entertaining get-togethers.
