Celebrating 60 years of the SP250 with the DLOC

We were honoured to share in the celebrations of 60 years of the Daimler SP250 at a fantastic evening hosted by the Daimler & Lanchester Owners Club that took place on Friday 14th June.


The club hosted the event at the beautiful voco St John’s Hotel in Solihull. Arriving at the hotel we were greeted by a huge collection of stunning SP250’s owned by the enthusiasts in attendance at the event.


Our very own David Manners kicked off the evening with an entertaining welcome speech before the guests enjoyed a delicious three course meal. Following the meal there were further inspirational speeches provided by guests including Quentin Willson , well-known TV presenter and motoring journalist.

Here are just some of the highlights from a very memorable evening.
