January 2018 – Newsletter

Happy New Year! Here we are again at the start of another busy year. Please find included our events calendar for the coming year. These dates are correct at the time of writing but any alterations will be published in future updates and on our Facebook group/website. Having been absent for the last couple of years, we start 2018 by heading back to Stoneleigh on 11th February for the MG & Triumph Spares Day. We won’t be at Brooklands this year for their MG Era Day. However, we will be returning for a second year to the NEC over the weekend of 23-25th March for the Classic Car & Restoration Show. The 2018 Racing Championships begin the following month with Silverstone hosting the first round on 7th April. We will be present at all the race meetings again this coming year – organising the lunchtime parade laps. The Pride of Longbridge event held in Cofton Park on 14th April completes a very busy month. Having tried some new things last year, and we wanted to push the boundaries a little further this year. Our ‘MGs in the Weald’ was a very popular day out, so this year we are having ‘MGs in the City’ at the Coventry Motor Museum in May. Our arrangements with the CMM are still being finalised but it should shape up to be another great family day out – watch this space. Later the same month we will be joining the Sussex Austin Rover & MG Owners Club for their road run. We are having an Open Day at Kimber House on 24th June, and heading north on 19th August to the Lakeland Motor Museum. We are also pleased to announce that MG Saloon Day will returning for 2018. Arrangements are still being discussed for this event but you will be notified of the details in due course. We will also be returning to Lancing on 14th October for their Motor Show. The year concludes with the Classic Motor Show at the NEC in November. Phew, I think that’s the highlights! Time to get those diaries!
