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!

31 Oct P36

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.

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.
