Sunbeam Lotus enthusiast Malcolm Wood set up the ASOC in 1989. The club originally catered just for the Talbot Sunbeam Lotus for the first three months and was the first club to do so. The Hillman Avenger Tiger was included and then because of the huge interest, all Avengers and Sunbeams. The club has grown since 1989 and today we have over 550 members and a very varied selection of cars in our club from everyday runabouts to fast road, concourse and race/rally cars. We cater for every model of Hillman Avenger, Chrysler Avenger, Talbot Avenger, Dodge Avenger, Hillman Arrow, Plymouth Cricket, Dodge 1800, Dodge Polara, Dodge 1500, VW 1500, Sunbeam 1250/1300/1500/1600, Simca Sunbeam, Chrysler Sunbeam, Talbot Sunbeam, Simca Sunbeam Lotus, Chrysler Sunbeam Lotus, Talbot Sunbeam Lotus, Simca Sunbeam Lotus and Avon Sunbeam Lotus. So if you own any of the above or are just an enthusiast this is the ONLY club for you.
