It’s excellent to see so many events proposed and planned. During May we had 8 people attend the “Rose of the Shires”, taking us through beautiful Northamptonshire.
Ian and Yvonne & Martin & Jackie attended the “Moor to the Sea”, near Exeter and the “New Forest Run” we had Geoff/Liz, Dave/Sue & Yvonne/Ian.
We also had an intrepid group led by Ron and Daran that went to the Spa Classic in the Belgian Ardennes. The cars
behaved and everyone everyone enjoyed the event. Nurburgring next year?
In June we have people attending the Cotswold Caper, always a great event.
We plan to start our Summer Mid month runs in June, by the time your read this we will have been to the Lowndes Arms at Whaddon – scene of the Hotel Inspector! There is another large group planning to head to the June Bicester
Scramble, buy your tickets on line – they sell out fast! If you’re a member of the MGB Register you’ll know about the event at Shelsley Walsh.
At least ten cars are booked to go to the Kimbolton Country Fayre in July, speak to Martin to get your entry wristbands and to book a plot. Anyone going to the Silverstone Classic this year? We’ll head to the Swan at Bromham for our July Mid Month Run – thanks to Jackie for the suggestion.
August will see us go to the newly refurbished Plough at Simpson. The MGB Register Classic Car Summer Picnic will be at at Millets Farm Centre Frilford. Stephen recommends the August 4th Classic Car show at the Rufus Centre at Flitwick, tickets £4 and need to be bought in advance.
There is a NEW EVENT on August 18th – Organised by Mike and Alison. Classic Car event at Claydon House.
Marshals will be needed but why not join the run?
