The large Industrial Company SOVAM (SOciété des Véhicules André Marin) provides specialist passenger and freight handling equipment to meet the very demanding ‘apron facilities’ requirements of airports – from passenger transit walkways, to freight transfer, baggage tractors, maintenance and cleaning equipment, conveyors, catering supply loaders, etc. In the mid-1960s the Company built a small sports car based on Renault chassis. The streamlined polyester-bodied car also carried the name SOVAM.

The weekend began with a most enjoyable party given by TOPS Organiser, Trisha Pilkington for her friends in the BRDC Clubhouse on the Friday evening. The first “Proper” race meeting of our vintage year is always eagerly anticipated and the event this year did not disappoint. It is amazing how well most of us scrub up for the social events.
