This year’s David Brown Memorial Lecture which you will recall AMHT instituted last year to make its work accessible to those living too far north to easily attend our other lectures is to be held on Thursday 26th October at the Principal Hotel in York starting at 7pm. AMHT Supporter, Maitland Cook who worked closely with John Wyer for many years will present “John Wyer, the Man and the Myth”. John Wyer was racing manager of Aston Martin in the heyday of the late 1950s, he went on to be General Manager of the company before forming his own racing team to manage the GT40s for Ford Motor Company when they took endurance racing by storm. He was a pivotal player in the success of Aston Martin, a formidable character and Maitland is in a position to provide first hand commentary on a fascinating chapter in our marque’s history.
The talk will be preceded by a three course meal with wine included and tickets can be obtained from the Trust office at £60 per head. The venue is right next to York station and has ample parking. They did a very good meal for us last year and you can expect a similar standard again. There will be a pay bar for our sole use before and after the meal.
