The penultimate rounds of this year’s Racing Championships continued on the 2nd September
at Oulton Park in Cheshire. A grid of thirty-two cars in the Trophy race were in prospect for
visitors, but unfortunately for the second time this year, an accident occurred in the Trophy
race with one of the competitors being airlifted to hospital. A big shunt occurred during the
first lap of the race – thankfully the driver involved will be okay. In the Peter Best Cup,
Register Treasurer Peter Burchill achieved second place overall. First place went to a
Tomcat, which are now allowed in the class, by a narrow margin of only 0.7 seconds.

We are giving a final call for the Lancing Motor Show which takes place on 8 th October. As
previously mentioned, will be going down there in full force with our gazebo etc to fly the
MG flag and promote the club, ourselves, and the Zeds in the world of classic cars. We still
have a number of Stand Passes left. If you are local or fancy a day by the sea please contact
either myself at the email address at the head of these notes or Paul Money at as soon as possible, there is still time to send one out to you. For
further information visit the official Lancing Motor Show page. The 2017 Racing
Championships then conclude at Snetterton on 30th October / 1st November.
