After a three year gap, as a Committee, we decided to attend this event due to its overall popularity.
The organisers were keen that we should return with gazebo and up to ten cars.
At this year’s event over two hundred cars and motorbikes were picked to drive up the Staples Lane hill which was closed for the day as a public right of way.
As always an eclectic mix of vehicles took part ranging from a 1948 Larmar Microcar powered by a 250cc BSA engine to current supercars.
Our stand was busy during the morning with a number of genuine enquiries from non-members who were interested in joining and in some cases seeking technical advice regarding their MGs.
The display boards recently produced by Austin Banner created considerable interest. The latest of these ‘MGs in competition’ was well received as naturally many members of the public attending were competition minded and pleased to see the MG Car Club still supports racing and other forms of motorsport.
Next year is the MG Car Club’s 90th birthday and it is hoped further emphasis can be made in this direction as competition has always been one of the key objectives since its formation in 1930.
