Stanford Hall 27th May

The name of the event was a slight misnomer – scheduled for organisers with a small number of cars and we expected pre-war Austin 7s and Sunbeams pre Rootes group takeover, none of which appeared.

Magnettes & Steam, 31st March 2018

Easter Saturday wasn’t ideal weather to kick off the Register events season, being cool and damp, but at least the threatened snow didn’t materialize, and Magnettes & Steam at the Cholsey & Wallingford Railway in Oxfordshire was actually quite a successful day.

Kop Hill Climb, 16-17th Sept 2017

The annual Kop Hill Climb event at Princes Risborough (Buckinghamshire) has become a regular fixture for the Register, providing a good opportunity to socialize in the club parking area and plenty of interest watching cars from 1920s onwards on the historic course, as well as many other classics in the static area.

Stockfest car show 20th August 2017

This sounds like it should be a Glastonbury type of event, but is actually a village fete with other attractions including a classic car show. We were first invited to it by the MGA Twin-cam group a couple of years ago, and as the village of Stockcross is conveniently located off the M4 near Newbury, it's been quite a popular day out for Magnette owners. I don't think any of us were energetic enough this time to join the organized 'Rare breeds' scenic drive before the show, settling instead for a later arrival at the show site.
