HARROGATE MG’s 2015

The Magnette Register were invited to join Harrogate MG Club in celebrating their 30th Anniversary event at Bewerely Park Pateley Bridge over the W’Kend of August the 8th / 9th.

On a Glorious Saturday morning a number of Magneteers met up with David Griffiths (Our Magnette Man “up North”), who with Wife Sandra had put together a very informative run with numerous places to visit, prior to meeting up for the Magnette AGM at The Oatlands Moat Club (their local MG natter venue – organised by David at no cost to the Register!)

Quainton Sunday July 12th 2015

On arrival we discovered that the promised area of tarmac had been allocated to another group but the staff at the centre offered us another part of the car park. This was a grass area complete with picnic tables and a private entrance – it was perfect. When the cars were marshalled into position there were 15 MGs lined up including the Farina Magnette of Jeremy Carrington. All other visitors had to pass en-route to the public car park and our cars were the cause of much interest.

MGLive! 20-21st June 2015

There was a better than average Magnette attendance for MGLive! (the main MGCC weekend at Silverstone race circuit), with 18 cars on Saturday and 14 on Sunday. On display in the marquee we had the historic rallying ZA in which Jan Pearce competed for over 20 years.

19th Z Magnette Day

End of June is a highlight for Magnette owners on the continent. Magnettes from different European countries meet for a relaxed weekend. This year we met in the Schwäbische Alb south of Stuttgart, which gave us a lovely scenerie and winding roads. The Magnettes came from Luxemburg, Austria and Gernmany and the longest distance travelled was about 800 km!

THE PADDOCK PICNIC

May 17th at Canons Ashby

It was a fine, dry spring day, but tempered by a cool breeze. The turnout of cars was disappointingly low but it was a case of “the right crowd and no crowding”. So what did the attendees enjoy during the day?

Magnettes at the 2015 Natmeet

I recently travelled to my first Natmeet with our Magnette Registrar, Peter Baldry.  Pete was a bit nervous as we set out in his new resto on its first major long distance run.  Pretty soon we were honking down the freeway cruising at 110 kph at a leisurely 3000 rpm thanks to the 5 speed gearbox and the 3.9 diff hooked onto a slightly warmed MGB motor. Many a motorist in their moderns must have wondered as we pulled alongside then passed them with ease.  Time proved that Peter had nothing to worry about as the Magnette ran flawlessly all the way to Melbourne and back and returned 35 mpg to boot.
