I recently had had my second Covid jab and have, so far, not even got so much as a sore arm. I must report that, contrary to rumours, I am not now able to receive DAB Radio by tweaking my right ear and my MG ZS changed the clock from GMT to BST without my interference.
Hopefully, we will be able soon to enjoy meeting up on those friendly social events; look at motor cars, drink beer and put the world to rights. The Marque of Friendship rules and all that. It would also be great to see the racing boys out again driving their irreplaceable cars like the world ends tomorrow. Cecil Kimber said that he wanted MGs to be cars that someone could drive to work all week and then, without modification, go clubman racing at weekends. It is great to watch this spectacle, wander through the pits and admire the machinery and, though one could never aspire to racing, it has been fun to take the MGB around the circuit at Silverstone and feel some of the thrill of being part of the track experience.
I have also driven around Silverstone, under the guidance of a racing driver, in an Aston Martin DB7. He commented that I had done it before and enquired in what. “ My MGB GT,” says I. “ Wonderful agile car,” was his response.
It’s time I stopped rambling and reminded you about the delights of the MGB Spring Run which will go from Millett’s Farm, Abingdon OX13 5HB to Stowe on Sunday June 27 with a 9.00am start.
We have also reserved space for the register at Kopp Hill on September 25-26, we will be in an MG area with the Abingdon Works Centre, Midget and Magnette Registers.
You can also Zoom to our AGM on May 22 at 11.00am; see the Register website for details.
I am also asked to suggest that you may well fancy a new polo shirt, so have a look, again at our super new regalia on the website.
