Meet the Committee

CHAIRMAN: John Gentleman (

Hi, I have a broad interest in bikes both old and new, as can be seen in the ones I own: 2015 Ducati  Multistrada  S,  a 1959 BSA Bantam D7 175cc and a 1965 BSA Lightning 650. The general culture of the section is relaxed, friendly & open to all bikes which suits me fine. As a committee member I am happy to help out where and when I can, as I enjoy both the riding and social side of the club.

SECRETARY: David Ashdown (

I have ridden motorcycles for over fifty years. Although an engineer by profession and always interested in how things work, I prefer to be out on the bike, invariably with my wife on the pillion, rather than fettling. I purchased our trusty 1963 Velocette Viper in 1973 and we use it for all the Club events. During my six years as Secretary, Brooklands Section has prospered thanks to our enthusiastic and hard working Committee that are always looking for new ideas to attract new members and keep our current ones entertained.

TREASURER: David Bell (

I started motorcycling in 1974 learning to ride at the Wimbledon RAC ACU training scheme, I have a broad interest in motorcycles having ridden and owned various Japanese, German and British bikes. I do enjoy working on and restoring bikes and find it therapeutic following a day in front of a computer. I have recently taken over the treasurer role on the committee and enjoy being part of a proactive and friendly club which is welcoming to all

Andy Faima

I was bought up around bikes as my late Dad always had them and I have been riding since the age of 16. I love all bikes old and new and I have my Dad's Matchless through to an Aprilia superbike. I joined the VMCC relatively recently but have thoroughly enjoyed the social side and especially the ride outs. I work full time as a Driving Instructor (hence the rapidly greying hair) but look forward to getting more involved with the club in the year ahead

WEB ADMIN: Jeremy Sigger (

I'm interested in almost anything with 2 wheels and an engine, old and new. I've got a soft spot for Italian V-twins and for machines made between the late '20s and very early '50s. I've been on the Brooklands Section committee for a couple of years and my main responsibility is the web site.

Robin Sutherland

I‘ve had a lifelong interest in motorcycles, old and new, and been a VMCC member for over 50 years. My work prevented much participation until I finally retired and joined the Brooklands Section. I’ve enjoyed their company, especially since getting my old BMW back on the road and joining them on some great rides and events. I own several British bikes as well and hope to get them roadworthy soon.
