Vintage Register AGM at The Hilton Garden Inn – Abingdon

Opening the year, we are delighted to warmly invite you to attend our ever-so-social Register AGM on Sunday 17th March which will be held at the Hilton Garden Inn Abingdon. 

The tried and tested formula will be the despatching of ‘official’ business as painlessly as possible, settling down to a good lunch and a chin wag, before enjoying our guest speaker’s presentation. It is a great pleasure to announce that this year it will be Nigel Elliott, Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs – fuel specialist who has kindly agreed to give us all a talk on the ‘new’ area of synthetic fuel.

This event is naturally very much open to not only VR members but our various friends and supporters. 

Quite apart from the opportunity to catch up with all our chums, this is a really interesting (and reassuring) topic in charting a path forward for the old car scene. Looking closer to home, the future of our cars is something we all care deeply about so we would urge you to make a very special effort to attend. 

As a little general background reading, here’s what Goodwood is up to with synthetic fuels in 2024. 

Goodwood – Racing ahead: Goodwood Revival becomes world’s first historic motorsport event to race exclusively with sustainable fuel 

Please confirm attendance to our Secretary, Debbie Brading on debbiebradingvr@yahoo.com

Tuesday 30th April to Saturday 25th May

MG 100 Cavalcade – John O’Groats to Land’s End

As we continue the Centenary celebrations of MG in 2024, for your enjoyment comes the innovative MG 100 Cavalcade – John O’Groats to Land’s End event being run, MG Car Club Centre by Centre, between the 30th April and the 25th May.

This rather than being a single procession of MGs all the way from Scotland to Cornwall, is a succession of Centre led road-runs passing a very appropriate MG 100 baton all the way through the country. ‘Cecil’…!

The event has been set up to be as inclusive as possible, whilst raising money for The Alzheimer’s Society & Lupus UK – two great, UK good causes. It would be especially fitting in continuing the celebrations if the earliest cars are well represented on the various Centre runs, so we would urge you to get in touch with your local Centre to participate and fly the flag proudly for the joys of Vintage motoring!

Please visit www.mgcc.co.uk/mg100/event/mg100-cavalcade-john-ogroats-lands-end/  for details and then link/spur off to your local Centre website to get involved. As one of the Cavalcade organising team, I would be very grateful if you would drop me a line to let us know of your entry plans. Rob Constant, Chairman – rob@littleabingdon.co.uk

Saturday 18th & Sunday 19th May

‘MG 100 Southeast’ at Brooklands 

Alongside our MMM chums we are planning a strong presence at the MG 100 Southeast Brooklands event over the weekend of the 18th & 19th May and would urge you to book via the event website at: www.mgccse.co.uk/mg100-south-east/ 

Brooklands, as we all know, is the birthplace of motor racing and provides a perfect location to move towards closing the celebrations of 100 years of MG. With a particular focus on and display of MG competition cars, scenic road runs on the Saturday, and multiple attractions and events going on at the old race track on the Sunday, it is a not to be missed occasion! Please do make every effort to attend as we gather at the location of some of MGs most notable racing successes and help create a particularly 20s/30s ‘feel’ to the occasion.

Again, I would be very grateful if you would drop me a line to let us know of your entry plans so we can liaise with our MMM brethren and event organisers in bringing the arrangements together. Rob Constant, Chairman – rob@littleabingdon.co.uk




Sunday 23rd June

 Triple M Register Summer Gathering – Farnham Royal

We are delighted to again be invited to this super, garden party feel event organised by Elizabeth & Andrew Taylor and would highly recommend attending.

There will be a self-judging pride of ownership and a light hearted gymkhana for those who want to take part, as well as some other fun competitions to keep everyone amused. There will again be a ‘Bring and Buy’ stall for those that have parts or memorabilia to sell. 

We would be very grateful if you would drop me a line to let us know of your entry plans so we can liaise with our MMM brethren and event organisers in bringing the arrangements together. Rob Constant, Chairman – rob@littleabingdon.co.uk
