Quiz night at the RAC Club
I spend my last Friday at the RAC club, participating in the legendary monthly Club Quiz Night at the Pall Mall clubhouse. We had a team of 7 and it was really good fun! The Quiz had 6 rounds, covering a wide range of stuff like Music, History and Geography.
Winners took home the glory and a case of Club wine. Unfortunately, that was not us, but we still had good fun, plus we learnt few new things!
A little bit about the RAC Club
The Royal Automobile Club was founded in 1897 by Frederick Richard Simms and its distinguished history mirrors that of motoring itself. Ten years later, in 1907, King Edward VII awarded the Club the Royal title that it still holds to this day, sealing the Club’s status as Britain’s oldest and most influential motoring organisation.In 1999 the Club demerged the motoring services and established an independent body, the Motor Sports Association (MSA), to govern motor sport in the UK.
Today, the Club continues to prosper with a diverse membership drawn from all four corners of the globe, two stunning and unique clubhouses, a flourishing events programme and unsurpassed accommodation, dining, sports and golfing facilities. The Club continues to develop and support automobilism through its promotion of motoring events and representation on the Motor Sports Association (MSA), Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA) and RAC Foundation.
The Pall Mall clubhouse offers a comfortable environment in which members can relax with guests. Out-of-town members value the 106 well positioned bedrooms, along with a choice of restaurants, lounges and bars, ranging from the opulence of the Great Gallery to the Art Deco chic of the Brooklands Room – an all-day Brasserie. There are also seven impressive private dining and meeting rooms, a business centre and well-stocked Library. The sports facilities offer a modern gym, stunning Turkish Baths, squash courts, treatment rooms, and the celebrated marble-columned swimming pool.
