The White Lion Antiques Centre started holding Classic Car Breakfast meetings in April 2012. These meetings have grown in popularity and we regularly see 100-200 cars attending. Our large car park and adjoining neatly mowed field holds in excess of 400 cars and is marshalled on Breakfast meeting days to ensure the safety of your prized possession. A look through our date-page tabs will show you the great diversity of cars that attend. Our meetings are known for their relaxed and friendly atmosphere and our tearoom serves a hearty breakfast and excellent coffee.

Owner of the White Lion Jerry Mahony (pronounced Marny) a former Racing Driver who had a relatively short but distinguished motorsport career. Jerry was 1991 British Thundersaloon Champion driving a 750HP highly modified Sierra Cosworth RS500. Jerry also won races in many categories during his racing career including the British Touring Car Championship where he raced the mighty Arquati Cosworth RS500 scoring Ford’s first win for the RS500 at Silverstone in March 1988. He went on to race a BMW M3 in the BTCC in 1990 but was plagued by unreliability.

Mark Hales and Jerry  were chosen as the drivers for Firestone when they returned to UK motorsport after a 25 year absence, in the two car Firestone Firehawk Sierra Cosworths. The two Firestone cars  dominated both of the Group N Championships during 1988/9 winning 22 races between them . Jerry also competed in the legendary 1990 Le Mans 24 hour race in a Group C sportscar, crashing out badly after 14 hours following suspension failure.

He had some distinguished team mates in his career in long distances races, including the late legendary Gerry Marshall (Donington 1987), Tim Harvey in the  Willhire 25 Hours (Snetterton 1989), and Robb Gravett was part of a two car Arquati Sierra Cosworth team with Jerry in 1987. He also raced in Ford’s European Truck racing team scoring some impressive wins, notably at the British Truck Grand Prix at Brands Hatch in 1988.

Jerry was a full member of the prestigious British Racing Drivers Club for 25 years.  He has no involvement in motorsport these days.

Jerry is a self confessed petrol head and boasts amongst his collection of cars a 1964 Series I Jaguar E Type Roadster, a 1971 MGB GT & 1974 Roadster, a 1969 Riley Elf  MK III,a 1969 Morris Minor Traveller and 1968 saloon.

Jerry felt that the area needed its own regular meeting place for classic car owners where they could come and have a natter and a cup of coffee, the Breakfast meetings were started in March 2012 and have grown in popularity since then with usually 100-200 cars attending.

The Breakfast meetings have many regular ‘members’ and some good friendships have been formed, the meetings are now well known for their friendly relaxed atmosphere.
