MGAs return to the “home” of the Register

Saturday 26th October saw a gathering of MGA owners at the Phoenix Inn near Hartley Whitney to mark 50 years since a small group of MG Car Club members met to “agitate” for a new Register dedicated to the MGA.  Our thanks go to Committee member Jill Eke for getting the event publicised in the Basingstoke Gazette the following week.  Click on the link below to read all about it!

73 people sat down to lunch including some who were at the original meeting in 1969, plus current members and guests from all over the UK.  Credit for arranging the cars and taking the photograph goes to John Lakey.  John also wrote an article about the reunion for Classic Car Weekly published on 7th November.  John’s connection to the MGA dates back to his childhood and uncle, Ted Lund, a works driver with MG who drove at Le Mans in 1955.
