Meet The Tyre Kicker Club: A Secretive Meeting Of Motorheads
Photography by Ted Gushue
A few weeks ago I had the distinct pleasure of joining an incredible group of people at Daylesford farm in Gloucestershire, about an hour and a half west of London. While I had to promise to keep the majority of the participants anonymous, it’s no secret that Daylesford is home to the Bamford Auto Department, a collection organized by the Bamford family (all members are active participants in their petrol passion). It’s this family that loosely organized a meeting of motor heads just a few weeks ago.

Naturally a few of the creations from Bamford Watch Department were on hand.
3.0RS sorted out by Tuthill Porsche, George Bamford shouting directions over the din of its six cylinders.
What’s that 356 on the right, could it be a very special Zagato?
