NOTE FROM THE REGISTRAR
The new layout seemed to improve the flow of visitors from previous years.
We had 6 new members join the MGB register and many more enquiries and updates about cars on the register.
We were able to assist one visitor whose MGB was running so badly he didn’t think he would get home. Geoff got it running better with a new set of plug leads and some oil in the dashpots – both items readily available on the trade stands. So we hope he got home ok.
GUIDED TOUR OF BICESTER HERITAGE – 3RD MAY 2018
Recently it narrowly escaped demolition to make way for housing. Thankfully an investment consortium saw the historic value and potential of the site and managed to persuade the government of their vision. Now listed of Historical Importance, the derelict buildings are being restored and occupied by businesses specialising in engineering and craft skills for classic and vintage cars, while light aircraft, gliders and vintage planes continue to fly from the airfield.
MARATHON MGB UPDATE
The next outing for the Marathon MGB is the Flywheel event at Bicester Heritage on 23rd & 24th June where it will be displayed with other Marathon and World Rally cars to promote the event at Gaydon on 29th July.
MGB Register Lecture Saturday 22nd September
We have just had confirmation the Irish lady rally driver who competed in the 1968 London to Sydney Marathon, Rosemary Smith, will be joining with Paddy Hopkirk and Alec Poole to tell us about their experiences on the event.
