Information from: Bill Barratt – EYTCC Secretary..
ALL EYTCC events planned for April, May & June 2020 are POSTPONED to 2021.
The EYTCC Committee advise all members that due to the restrictions on movement introduced by H,M, Government, our Editor & Printer is not permitted to open for business The EYTCC will be unable to print or distribute ANY FURTHER THOROUGHBRED TORQUE MONTHLY MAGAZINES until the restrictions are lifted.
The EYTCC Committee do not know if or when, any planned EYTCC Events & Social Gatherings will take place in 2020, whilst the present Covid19 Corona Virus restrictions remain in place, as the East Yorkshire Thoroughbred Car Club is not permitted to hold any gatherings on direction of H.M. Government. We are in the process of refunding any event entry fees paid to date.
It is highly likely that all EYTCC events scheduled for 2020 will be postponed to 2021, but If we do hold any events they will all be PAY ON THE DAY. ( Late Entry Fees will not apply).
EYTCC Members who wish to, can enter our planned events in July, August & September 2020, nut better to await developments by H.M. Government.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND ANY CHEQUES OR PAYMENTS OF ANY KIND.

Corona Virus – Latest Events Information
As you all will no doubt be aware – the situation regarding the Corona Virus Pandemic, will affect what scheduled events, we (and other organisers) will be holding. This is currently something which is constantly evolving.
Events – Current Status: Our events are currently cancelled until further notice. Any payments made by cheque with pre-bookings for the season, will be returned in due course, although your bookings will still remain on our system.
Should circumstances change, allowing us to hold events, we will publicise details, and those that have pre-booked, will be able to pay upon entry.
Magazine – Current Status: Unfortunately, we are currently unable to have printed our monthly EYTCC Torque Magazine – which means that the April edition (and possibly other editions) will either not be issued, or may be delayed.
We will be making our future event decisions based upon professional and Government advice.
The latest updates with regards to how we will be proceeding – will be announced here, and within the club magazine – when available. We will also be providing a recorded message, on our events telephone number – for those without continual web access. This number is: 08436 410 230 – and calls are charged at local rates (which may be extra if calling from a mobile – depending upon your carrier).
We are now attempting to communicate with the majority of members, via an email newsletter. The first one sent out can be seen here. If you did not receive an email, it may be that you are not yet on our mailing list, or we may have recorded it incorrectly, in which case please let us know, by going to this change of details page, and selecting the ’email’ option.
EYTCC 2020 Calendar
Originally planned to date from March 2020 to February 2021 – this years EYTCC Calendar has been cancelled.

Membership Card and Vehicle ID Discs
The main purpose for these cards and discs, are for security identification, and to assist in event entry, specifically when a member has forgotten to bring with them to an event, a stamped event entry card, or (issued online) entry pass. This is to safeguard against non-members (or those with expired membership) trying to access events under false pretences – as have happened on previous occasions.
- Please remember, that these cards and discs are issued just once – for the duration of your membership, and not replaced annually. If you lose one, please let us know immediately, so that we can replace it, and cancel the old one on our system.
- The numbers on the card and discs, are unique, and linked to your membership number – but do not contain your membership number – which can be found on your magazines address label.
- It is advisable, to write your membership number on the membership card signature strip on the reverse – for reference – should you not remember it.
Are you using your correct Membership Number?
A few members are booking into events with the incorrect membership number – which is causing us a lot of problems, and a lot of extra (unpaid) work. Your membership number is displayed at the top-right of your magazines address label. It is NOT the number on the vehicle discs or membership cards. In some cases people are using a number close to their actual number, but with an incorrect digit. If uncertain, then please check your magazine label, or use our online search facility here:
Forgotten your Membership Number?
Members £5 Deficit on Standing Order Payments
There are still a number of members, whom may have updated their Standing Order amount with their bank, from £20 to £25, but not before their £20 payment was made, and therefore need to make the additional £5 payment – otherwise their membership will be marked as ‘Associate’, meaning vehicles can not be booked into events. Full details of payment options, including an online payment option, can be found from here.
Online Events Booking for Members
If you have already booked into events, and would like to book into additional ones, you can now do so online from here. Also, if you are a relatively new member, and have not got an event application form, you can download one from here, and book events online from here.
You can also let us know if you are unable to make it to an event, by cancelling here.
Have your vehicle or article featured in our magazine!
You can now submit articles – such as an editorial feature about your vehicle – directly, and including photo(s), via this website. Simply go to this page.
Membership Cards and Vehicle Discs
It seems some members may have been a little confused whilst renewing their membership, and believing that Vehicle Discs and Membership Cards are replaced annually – as was the case with the old discs.
This is not the case, the ‘dateless’ new cards and discs are designed to be effective, as long as your membership is active, and they are registered on our system.
Please do not leave your discs in a vehicle you are selling. If your card or disc is lost, then please notify us immediately, so that we can replace, and then delete any lost ones from our database – so that they can no longer be used.
Incidentally, the discs are designed to be placed within a holder on the windscreen – the type that originally held a tax disc. These are still readily available as they are used for parking permits, etc. If you shop online, you can buy these from eBay, starting at 99p inc. delivery. If you are having trouble finding a holder – then please get in touch.
Your Standing Order Payments
We’ve received quite a few Standing Order payments, for those whom pay this way, at the old membership fee amount of £20. Whereas the Membership for 2019 (as proposed and agreed at the 2018 AGM) is still great value – but now at £25.
If you haven’t updated your Standing Order arrangement with your bank yet – which in many cases can be done online, or a visit to your bank – then please do so ASAP. If your payment has already gone through to us for the old amount of £20, then please could you post us a cheque for the outstanding balance of £5 – payable to EYTCC and post to: The Treasurer, EYTCC, PO Box 320, Beverley, HU17 0WA – and put your membership number on the back of your cheque. If you have not yet received your membership card and vehicle disc(s), please include a self-stamped addressed envelope – unless you have already done so with your renewal application form.
Online Membership Renewal
If you are looking to renew your existing EYTCC Membership, through our automated online PayPal payment system – from previously paying by another method – then please click here. You do not need to have a PayPal account, and can pay by card. Using this method, is not only easier for you, but reduces the work-load of our volunteer committee members. You can easily unsubscribe at any time from our website, or via PayPal directly.
