Winding up of the SOCQ

Please note that as this club is being wound up and merged with the Rootes Group Car Club of Queensland we have begun to decommission this website. The RGCC can be found here:

Merger with the Rootes Group Car Club of Queensland

It was resolved at our AGM that we will merge with the Rootes Group Car Club of Queensland. All financial members will become members of the Rootes Group club. It is sad to see the end of the Sunbeam Owners’ Club as an independent entity but it has become too difficult to find willing volunteers to keep the club going and fill committee positions.

The Rootes Group Car Club has greater resources and enthusiastic active membership. The new merged entity will be better placed to serve the interests of Sunbeam and Talbot owners in the future.

Following on from the Sunbeam Tiger featured in Forza Motorsport 6, the recently-launched Forza Horizon3 features a Talbot Sunbeam Lotus in the Alpine Stars add on pack.

Sunbeam for Xbox!

If you own an Xbox and a copy of Forza Motorsport 6, you might be interested in the Alpinestars car pack. This pack adds a selection of extra cars to the standard Forza garage, one of which is a Mk II Tiger. My son has been racing it around Silverstone and has given it the thumbs up.
