Me And My MGs – Adrian Bennett (contd)

Having now corrrected the V5 details on my TF, we contentedly used her for trips out and to attend MG events. I continued to have niggling problems with it – only one windscreen wiper would work, and periodically it would run rough because the carbs would lose their settings over time. The wiper issue was easily diagnosed – the operating ... More

British Heritage Flywheel Festival

I went along to this on the Saturday, and as last year there was a lot going on all day. Also, the event was even bigger than last year with a full programme of events going on all around the field and the restored buildings, as well as in the air, with many more trade stands to help us spend our pocket money. Highlights this year were again ... More

MG Live

Nothing much to report on this, since I didn't go this year. Jack Martin did, but he was jet lagged from his holiday/son-in-law's wedding and can't remember much of what was going on, but he still managed to come back with a full shopping basket! It was far too hot for me, and Silverstone is such a sun-trap I would have suffered way too much ... More

Chiltern Hills Rally

Sunday 21st May – and we have 8 cars booked on our pitch at the Chiltern Hills Rally. But first, to the Aylesbury Tuck for the traditional bacon sarnie and mug of tea – very welcome after two weeks of eating pasta in Sicily! The staff at the Tuck are amazing – it must be one of their busiest mornings of the year, but we didn't have to ... More

Me and My MGs – Dave Barton

My Relationship with MG This month it is the turn of our chairman, Dave Barton, to recount why he is passionate about MG: My MG history starts in March 2007 when after many years of motorcycling I thought it was time to give up two wheels but was not ready to give up motoring in the open air. Having always had an affection ... More

Me and My MGs (Part 2, 1976 – 1999) by Adrian Bennett

My Relationship with MG This month sees the second instalment of my article in the series about us and our MGs. In 1976, Jackie and I were posted to the Army's Supply Computer Directorate at the Ordnance Depot in Bicester to join the team of systems analysts working on the replacement logistics system. It took a year to sell our house ... More

Club Weekend Away September 22nd – 24th

Club Weekend Away In September 22nd - 24th. Dave Barton has been investigating the possibilities for the weekend away in Canterbury, and has identified a hotel in the centre of the town, (The Falstaff, 8-10 St Dunstan's St Canterbury Kent CT2 8AF), that can accommodate us, and has reserved a number of rooms for us. The members who have so ... More

Bicester Heritage Sunday Scramble

A number of us were at the Sunday Scramble – we are now registered as a club with BH, so are able to get discounted tickets for this. Again, the weather gave us another fine day – not overly warm, but bright and dry. Dave Barton, John Boult and I joined the queue of cars slowly wending into the Bicester Heritage site, and eventually ... More

Upcoming Events – Dates For Your Diary May Newsletter

Run to Thames Valley Sports Car Day at Hambleden There is still no date for this event that Brian Deacon or I can find, and I have had no response from the JEC who organise this, so I think we have to presume that it will not be held this year. Perhaps we can arrange something later in the summer or next year. Chiltern Hills Rally – ... More
