Mustangs that came out. So, she (his older sister) got
to drive the Mustang. I drove the Riley and then my
dad got another car. "
Sandy's excellent care of the car has been

celebrated in several contests over the years with one
catch. He attended these contests without even the
interest of competing! One of these in fact, was the
People's Choice Award he won 22 years ago, making
it the number one car in the show that entire year.
There is one other especially fond memory of the
car that he has however, when it comes to contests.
Entering his car into a non-judging category, Sandy
was surprised when a gentleman approached him
and told him that they were getting ready to judge
his car. While Sandy was confused over why this
happened, he was intrigued by something. There
was a distinctness about the brogue in the man's
voice. As it turns out, the gentleman happened to be
from Scotland, not too far from the original home of
the Riley Automobile. He not only had an in-depth
knowledge about the Riley, but his father " coveted
the Riley his whole life " as well. Half an hour later, a
winner was announced; it was Sandy's car.
Ironically, it is the uniqueness of this vehicle
that caused Sandy Turner to also realize how
out of place his car was two years ago. There
wasn't a specific car club that his car belonged
to. Realizing this, he decided to start the British Motor
Racing Club; a club that focuses on exclusively British
made cars. In hindsight, the timing couldn't have
been worse. Not even a month after the club was
founded, the Covid-19 Pandemic hit and all club
meetings were shut down. It is with credit to Sandy's
and other club members' dedication to helping fellow
British car owners out that the club kept growing
regardless. When it first started, the club had 10
cars showing up in the parking lot. Today, the club
has 60 members and 80 cars. Meetings are held
every third Saturday of the month at the Spanish
Springs Cruise In from 2:30 to 8 p.m., They share
valuable information on various challenges with
British cars and how to solve them. It's possible you
own a British vehicle in need of a certain repair. Not
a problem. Not only does the club hold tech sessions
on problems specific to these cars, but there are at
least three mechanics in the club who are able to offer
hands-on advice. If you're a Villages resident and
have a deep appreciation for these unique vehicles, be
sure to stop by and hear some of the stories from the
club's members.
