MGB Register Lecture 2018
This time we were at Radley College using the fantastic theatre they have, over 180 keen rally motorsport enthusiasts came to listen to BMC rally ace Paddy Hopkirk and his co-driver Alec Poole together with the Irish female rally driver Rosemary Smith. To control the discussion was the motor journalist and historian Graham Robson. The event started with a film of the London to Sydney 1968 Marathon before the discussion of the event. Following a coffee break Graham was joined by David Harrision who drove a Ford Cortina Lotus entered by the British Army Motoring Association and Hugh Chambers son of Marcus who was the Rootes Competition Manager. Hugh is about to join the MSA as the CEO, he also races an MGB.

MGB Register Weekend 2018
The location this year was the historic Ironbridge Gorge in Shropshire, our hotel was the Best Western Valley Hotel where we all meet on the Friday evening, the Saturday run was just under 90 miles and followed the Long Mynd to the Midlands Gliding Club for a coffee break, then onto Powis Castle over the border in Wales then back to Telford. Sunday we followed the River Severn down to Bewdley and Stourport on Severn then back to the hotel after a 60 mile drive.
