23oct19:3022:00POSTPONED - An Evening With Roger Nathen - The Costin-Nathan Story and Much ElsePOSTPONED - The talk will give an accurate, detailed insight to the ‘golden age’ of motor racing in the 1960’s. Roger was the youngest driver ever to win the Coveted National British Autosport Championship aged 20 in a Lotus Elite. BP then took an interest and helped with sponsorship for the new Brabham BT-8 Coventry Climax powered sports racing car for 1964. After initial testing problems were rectified with both Jack Brabham and Roger testing at Goodwood the car proved to be a winner, competing with the likes of Jim Clark Lotus 30, Bruce McLaren, Graham Hill and John Surtees. Roger then started building his own Costin-Nathan sports racing cars jointly with aerodynamicist and designer Frank Costin. These proved winners with a particularly notable win against the works Fiat Abarth team in a ‘David and Goliath’ scenario by winning the international Coupe De Paris at the banked Montlhery Autodrome. These cars are unique having an all wooden constructed monocoque. The evening will take place in the Lecture Theatre of the Collections Centre, National Motor Museum, Beaulieu from 7.30 until 10.00 pm. A bar will be available for the purchase of drinks. Tickets are £10.00. For further information and to book tickets please contact Theresa Browning on 01590 614792. Please note: The National Motor Museum will not be open.19:30 - 22:00
