MGA At 2019 Australian Grand Prix
MGAs from the Victoria Club will be in pride of place next Sunday when they drive the competitors around the Albert Park Circuit on their parade lap. These pictures are from our 50th Anniversary celebrations in 2005, the only previous occasion when the MGA was granted this honour.
Set your alarm clock or TV recorder for Sunday morning and enjoy the moment.
Pictures should be available for the next edition of “Safety fast!”
MGA Day 2018 on videos
MGA Day was held at Canons Ashby, a 16th Century Manor House in Northamptonshire about 10miles North East of Silverstone. The Register had reserved a large private parking area next to the House which would take about 100 cars. As the long hot summer of 2018 came to an end and with heavy rain forecast for several days beforehand, it was no surprise that the turn out was just 27 cars. Only one of these was a Twin cam which was a disappointment in this their 60th anniversary year.
Car of the day was awarded to Daran Scarlett of Buckinghamshire, joined by his charming and enthusiastic son Charlie, for his wonderful OEW 1500 roadster KAS 893. The Danny Byrne Trophy was presented by Peter Morgan.
Record turnout of MGAs on the Yorkshire Dales tour
68 MGAs of all styles and colours gathered in Ilkley over the weekend 11th to 14th May to enjoy the stunning scenery of the Yorkshire Dales in springtime. To help ease congestion on the narrow moorland roads, two full day routes were planned and each driver given the option to choose which route to follow on Saturday and Sunday. This worked well with the cars being evenly split over the routes on both days.
A record was also set when 130 people sat down for roast beef and Yorkshire pudding in the ballroom of the Craiglands Hotel on Saturday night!
