We teamed up with the MGF Register again on Sunday 18th August for Monogram Sunday which took place at Burghley House in Lincolnshire.   Fortunately, after our previous event at Shuttleworth the only rain we had was quite light and early in the morning, allowing us to enjoy a warm sunny day.   In the end around thirty cars attended our gathering in the stunning setting of the Burghley Estate.

These included some rare Monogram colours and some one-offs such as the only ZR produced in Moody Blue.  Some of our visitors took the opportunity to tour the magnificent Elizabethan House and Landscaped gardens which have been the location for many TV productions.   During the afternoon we held our ‘Show and Shine’ competition.   Judging was extremely difficult with so many stunning cars to choose from.   Congratulations to the winners and runners-up.  We’d like to thank everyone who attended as we know some of you travelled a great distance to be there.


After a relatively quiet September its back to business as we enter October.   On Saturday 5th October the final racing rounds of 2019 take place at the Snetterton circuit in Norfolk.   Please see Geoff in the Hospitality Suite if you wish take part in the lunchtime parade laps.   The following day our Open Day and AGM takes place at Kimber House.  I’m happy to announce that our guest speaker will be Mark Stacey from Kmaps.   You may recall his article in Safety Fast earlier this year.   As promised, we have a number of exciting announcements for 2020 which will be revealed on the day.   At the end of the month on 26th October, Supercar Saturday takes place at the Castle Coombe Circuit.   We are happy to support this charity with all monies raised during the day donated to the Stroke Association, who have also been our chosen charity for this year.

Additionally, we have been invited to the Lancing Motor Show which takes place on Sunday 13th October.   We will be heading to the south coast with the campaign car and outdoor kit to promote the ZEDS at this huge event which attracts over five hundred classic cars.
