The MG and Triumph Spares Day.

Stoneleigh Park

Thanks to all those who supported the first newly merged Carole Nash International MG and Triumph Spares Day which proved a success for fans of both manufacturers as 10,653 enthusiasts joined us at Stoneleigh Park.

The response to the dual show in the run up to its opening had been fantastic with halls one and two selling out of space early on, to the point where we had a waiting list. Adding the fourth hall and investing in the infrastructure of the show with more carpeted areas, a covered linkway between halls and better heating was a big hit with visitors and the 20 plus clubs in attendance.

In fact we were caught off guard at just how well the show was received in terms of the traffic, with the usual entry points used in previous years unable to cope so we are already looking at opening other entry points within Stoneleigh Park as we do for Race Retro, for the 2016 event.

The 2016 International MG and Triumph Spares Day will take place on Sunday 21st March. When and we hope you will join us in continuing to build the show in its second year.

The All MG Events, organized by the MG Council, are held every five years. The first was in 1996 in Indianapolis – 108oF in the shade, but there wasn’t any! Then Minneapolis in 2001 – a beautiful car show site on tree-lined streets. Gatlinburg in 2006 provided the ultimate in family entertainment. Now it is the turn of the west of the North American continent to see one of these great events.

Based at the Tri-Properties in Reno – the Silver Legacy, Circus-Circus, and the El Dorado – these hotels are linked by skyways, and one parking garage where there will be reserved MG parking. Trailer parking is also on-site.

The event schedule includes:

Monday, June 13th – Package pickup, and a “Welcome Reception” in the evening for all participants, at the National Automobile Museum, just 0.5 miles from the hotels.

Tuesday, June 14th – local self-drive tours to Lake Tahoe, Carson City/Virginia City, or the same in an air-conditioned coach.

Wednesday, June 15th - an autocross race, and performance driving instruction. MG2011 Fun Auction and Morris Garage Band entertainment.

Thursday, June 16th – Car show in Reno's Rancho San Rafael Park, about 1.5 miles from the hotels – we expect 800-1000 cars in this show. Gala Banquet (Buffet) and award ceremonies for each Register in the evening.

Friday, June 17th – Hugs for the trip home, and farewells 'till next time.

This is also NAMGAR’s GT-36 event, so all the usual GT features for MGA, Magnette, and variant drivers will be on the menu – First Timer’s Reception and NAMGAR dinner (Tuesday evening), Magnette Owner’s Breakfast (Tuesday morning), and a drive to lunch on Lake Tahoe (Wednesday). This drive includes a catered lunch in a state park, and is restricted to 35 cars only due to parking constraints. The GT-36 Hospitality Room will be located in the Silver Legacy, which will also be the venue for tech talks, and the vendor room. Vendors will be in this room Monday to Thursday and some will also be at the Car Show site. NAMGAR is organizing “Hot August Nights”, just a few months earlier than usual!

MG 2011 first all MG Event in the west, we can expect to see western US and western Canadian MG’s that have never been to one of these events before. To make the drive to Reno even more fun for cars from the east, NAMGAR is encouraging all MG drivers to be part of the “Rallye to Reno”. This will start from Ocean City, Maryland, on June 4th, and you are invited to join the convoy as it drives Route 50 west to Reno. Stops to admire the sights are scheduled enroute. Details are on the NAMGAR website.

Event registration and hotel reservations can be made through the event website. You will also be able to order event regalia, dash plaques,etc, through the web site.

A strong contingent of Y Types in attendance would ensure that we get our own class ... rather than being classed as "Variants" so register early at the Official site.  If you plan on driving your Y Type to the event, you can also join in the convoy!

 

Details available from the Official MG 2011 website.

UK MG Car Club Y Type Register

Autumn Run - Tour the Mountains and Plains of South Bedfordshire

Stondon Museum of Transport to Leighton Buzzard Railway

Last year the MG Y Type Register had an inaugural Autumn Run to complement the Spring Runs that are organised so ably every year by Jerry Birkbeck.

As some of you may have missed this event, we are having a second inaugural run this year.

The run will start at the Stondon Museum of Transport and go through South Bedfordshire’s mountain passes to the Leighton Buzzard Railway.

The run will start at around 12.00am and we aim to be at Leighton Buzzard Railway for 2.00pm. The Stondon Museum of Transport is packed with a collection of around 350 vintage vehicles (and when we say packed, we mean packed). These range from family saloons to rare sports specials and from motorbikes to London buses.

The Leighton Buzzard Railway is a 3 mile long narrow gauge railway which is home to 60 locomotives; steam, diesel and petrol. The day of the run coincides with their Gala Weekend, ‘Tropical Steam’ featuring locomotives that worked in the tropics, on sugar plantations and the like. We have been given a discount on entry fees to both attractions. Entry to the run is £12.50; which includes a Rally Board and Route Book. We hope that Y Type owners who haven’t been to Spring Runs before will be able to join us. Interlopers are also welcome of course.

BOOK EARLY TO AVOID DISAPPOINTMENT AS PLACES WILL BE LIMITED!

Pre-War, T and Y weekend 2010

4th and 5th September, Toowoomba, Queensland Australia

M.G. owners have been invited to view a private collection of significant Pre-War M.G. and Morris Cars on Saturday 4th September on the Darling Downs near Toowoomba.  The M.G.s are all pre-war models from a 1929 18/80 Super Sports through to a 1938 SA Saloon, while the Morris cars are from 1925 To 1938, commencing with a 1925 Bull-nose Special. His collection is based on the development of both MG and Morris marques.

To visit the collection you will need to meet at the “Nobby Pub” by 10:00am, and the convoy will be escorted to the collection after 10:30am.

A catered lunch will be provided on Saturday after viewing the private collection, so those attending must RSVP.

After lunch we will be taking an interesting tourist drive (no highways) to Toowoomba for an overnight stay and dinner to socialize/celebrate with M.G. Pre-War cars and owners.  Those who wish to trailer their Pre-War M.G.s to Nobby and then drive them to Toowoomba, will be provided with a shuttle service back to Nobby to collect your tow cars & trailers late on Saturday after arrival at our accommodation.

On  Sunday morning we will be visiting a 2nd private vehicle collection in Toowoomba.  More details to follow. Alternatively, there is the Cobb & Co Museum and lots of other attractions in Toowoomba.

We will be stopping at Marburg for a picnic lunch/wine tasting on the way home Sunday at a fantastic venue, before we go our separate ways.

Costs for the lunches, dinner and accommodation are being sought now, but we will be keeping costs as low as possible.

For those who wish to travel to Nobby in convoy with directions, we will be providing a start location in the Ipswich area at around 8:00am.

Please register you interest in the week-end ASAP to me, so I can plan the catering and accommodation numbers, and advise you of costs for the week-end as soon as known.

The run will start in the pretty town of Woburn and go through Bedfordshire lanes to the Shuttleworth Collection in Old Warden.

The run will start at around 11.00am and we aim to be at Old Warden for the start of the day’s flying at 2.00pm.

The Shuttleworth Collection houses an astounding collection of airworthy vintage aircraft from the earliest aeroplane still flying, powered by its original engine, through thirties biplanes to second world war fighters. Whether or not you’ve ever visited before, the sight, sound and smell of Edwardian aeroplanes flying over a classic grass aerodrome at twilight is unforgettable.

If the aeronautical doesn’t appeal to you there are the beautiful Swiss Gardens to visit and a Falconry Centre. If that’s not enough there’s also a children’s playground and a field full of wallabies, emus and llamas.

We have been given dedicated parking space on the flight line for 30 cars and a 10% discount on entry to the event.

Entry to the run is free for MG Y Type Owners (£5.00 for others), including a Rally Board and Route Book.

The North York Moors Tour: 2009

You are invited to join fellow Y owners on a 3 night tour of the North York Moors during August 2009. Based at The Worsely Hotel in the delightful village of Hovingham, participants will gather during Sunday, 16th August in time for cocktails and dinner, followed by distribution of the Tour Documentation.

Hovingham is an old Moors village, dating from Roman times and listed in the Doomsday Book. It is the home of the Worsely family – at Hovingham Hall – and still has its village shops, pub and church as one would expect!

 The North York Moors is one of just 12 National Parks in England & Wales, which will be celebrating the 60th Anniversary of the “National Parks & Access to the Countryside Act, 1949” which was the legislation creating all of our National Parks!

 The Worsely Hotel dates from the 1840’s and offers a total of just 19 rooms. Secure parking is available and the Hotel has a pleasant bar and attractive gardens available.

The Tour will include scenic runs of around 75 miles a day. One day through the Eastern Moors, including ancient Abbeys, multiple photo opportunities and a wealth of characteristic villages.  A further day will be spent in the Northern Moors and will include travel on one of the country’s most extensive preserved steam railways – The North York Moors Railway. Along its route the Railway stops at Grosmont, and Goathland – a.k.a. Aidensfield in TV’s Heartbeat before arriving at the market town of Pickering.

An opportunity will be given for a shorter final day’s Tour ending at the Museum at Eden Camp near Malton.

Dates:  Sunday 16th August – Wednesday 19th August (3 nights at hotel, depart on Wednesday)

Costs:  Accommodation for the three nights in Twin/double rooms; full breakfast and dinner each evening (Sunday, Monday & Tuesday) per person will be £165.00 This cost is based on 2 persons sharing.

Inclusive costs for steam travel, Museum/entrance fees are to be determined but will be most realistic ‘cost based’ prices.

Reservations:  Immediate action is suggested, the Touring party is growing rapidly by word of mouth and, of course, by reputation gained on the 2004 Tour to the Yorkshire Dales!

Contact:  Andrew or Arlene Coulson to register interest; deposits will be required in early March (or even earlier!) and final numbers will be closed at the Spring Run in May.

Email: dvrarlene@btinternet.com tel: 01 765 600 716

Don’t delay! The Tour may just have to depart without you!

M.G. CAR CLUB Y TYPE REGISTER

Spring Run & Weekend May 10 - 11 2008

Following the success of this year’s Diamond Jubilee at Charlecote Park and especially the Dinner on the Saturday, which was attended by 74 Y owners, partners and friends, it was felt by the Committee that a weekend should be the format for 2008.

Some of you may recall that I had said that after organising `Spring Runs’ for the register since 1997 that the Diamond Jubilee was going to be my swansong. However, the undoubted success of this year’s dinner gave me a new incentive for the future. What I found surprising is that I had never given any thought to organising such an event before. Considering that a large percentage of those on the run have stayed in the area the night before then organising a Dinner and somewhere for the majority to stay seemed obvious. This year two and two did make four!

Arrangements for Spring 2008

Our weekend for 2008 will be over Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 May 2008: the run taking place on the Sunday. This allows for Y owners who are not staying over the weekend to take part in the Spring Run

We are going to be based at Stratton House, a hotel six miles north of Cirencester. You can find details by going to (www.strattonhousehotel.co.uk). I have reserved 25 rooms and there are a total of 33 rooms, so we will effectively be taking over the whole hotel. I did look at several locations in the Cotswolds and could not find any good deals. Indeed the rate that Paul Gresser negotiated for the Charlecote Pheasant  last May was an exceptional arrangement.

For 2008 the costs are £100 per room per night for Bed and Breakfast: if you choose to stay for two nights then this is reduced to £80 per room per night. Unfortunately, if you attend as an individual the rate per room is the same (with the reduction to £80 for two nights). The Dinner will be £25 per head.

As with last year we have arranged with the hotel for you to be able to book in advance. If you telephone Stratton House (01285 651761) and quote Reference No G 33605 “MG Car Club Y Type Register”. For accommodation reservations the guests will be sent a confirmation stating their booking details and cancellation policy of 4 weeks prior to the event.

  Saturday 10th May

The arrangements for the Saturday are pretty fluid, though the hotel does have a croquet lawn … perhaps a YA/YT v YB team event? We would expect to meet for pre-event drinks at say 6.45 pm with Dinner being served at 7.30 pm.

  Sunday 11th May

On the Sunday I am suggesting that we depart from the Hotel Car Park at around 11.30 am, thus giving entrants taking part on the Sunday alone to arrive with plenty of time. We are then taking a leisurely drive of around 40 miles across parts of the Cotswolds that we may not have visited in the past and finishing up at Kelmscott Manor, which is near Lechlade.

Kelmscott Manor is a Grade 1 Tudor Farmhouse. It was the summer home of William Morris, the well known poet, designer and socialist from 1871 until his death in 1896. It is an inspirational place with collections of his work splendid gardens and a restaurant.  You can find more details on their website (www.kelmscottmanor.co.uk)

The Manor is normally not open on a Sunday but such is their interest in the Y, and its followers, that they have agreed to this. They have put forward options for a tour, which amounts to £9.50 a head, and their restaurant will be open to serve afternoon teas. I anticipate us arriving at Kelmscott around 2.00 pm. We will have our `Pride of Ownership Event’ around 3.45 pm and the grounds will be open until 5.30pm

We have decided that there will be no charge for the event. Entrants will receive their usual rally board and route guide.

Full details will be available in the New Year. However, expressions of interest should be made to me (see below) and bookings at Stratton House are the responsibility of each entrant. So please do organise this yourself and do not expect that by contacting me that I will do it for you – because I will not! I would recommend that you book the hotel immediately and not wait until a month before the event as it will be booked up!

I can be contacted by e-mail, by phone on +44(0)1926 424053, or by writing to me at: Jerry Birkbeck, 22 Campion Terrace, Leamington Spa. Warwickshire CV32 4SX, United Kingdom.

The MG Y Type celebrates its 60th Anniversary in 2007 - UK.

To mark this very special occasion the Register Committee have opted to hold an event over the weekend of 12 - 13th May 2007.

The venue will be Charlecote Park (a National Trust property) which is 5 miles to the east of Stratford upon Avon, in Warwickshire. There are strong associations with both Queen Elizabeth and one "Will" Shakespeare, who knew the house well. Our Jack the Lad' is alleged to have been caught poaching the estate deer, so much for our national icons! More details can be found on page 245 of the current NT Handbook or by visiting the website www.nationaltrust.org.

The gates will be open to us from 10.00 am. The NT will also be promoting this event and we will have an exclusive Pride of Place along the principal entrance to the house.

We have decided to include a short run of around 30 miles - which will start and finish at Charlecote, which will leave at around 11.30 am. The run is voluntary and if you would rather stay at Charlecote for the day that is fine. We will have our usual self-judging concours in the afternoon and the Register Stand will also be present. We would like some volunteer marshals on the day and anyone who is interested could they please either telephone or fax, or e-mail the event organiser JERRY BIRKBECK.

On the Saturday 12th May the Register will be holding a dinner at the 'Charlecote Pheasant', which is 200 metres from the entrance to the park. All the rooms at the 'Charlecote Pheasant' have now been booked. There are only 15 places available for the 60th Anniversary dinner though, so if you would like to attend, BOOK A PLACE NOW with Jerry!  Although all rooms are taken at the Pheasant, other local accommodation may be available via www.BedandBreakfast-Directory.co.uk[Local towns include Stratford on Avon (4 miles), Warwick(5 miles), Leamington (7 miles), and local villages include Wellesbourne (1 mile), Barford(2 miles), Hampton Lucy (1 mile)].

There will be no charge by the Register for the run on  Sunday 13th and participants will be provided with the usual rally boards and route maps etc.

The National Trust will not charge car and driver but will charge at a reduced rate for other adults in the car (£6.70 a head)  with children under the age of 16 free. If you are a member of the NT you of course get in free. More information will be forthcoming over the next few months and details will be available on the web or from Jerry Birkbeck at the beginning of January 2007.However, if you wish to reserve a place at the dinner and accommodation then we would recommend that you contact the Hotel sooner rather later - bookings are being taken now.

Sydney Concours and Display Day - I am making a big effort to encourage every Y type owner we know about to come along.   I hope we can put together the largest gathering of Y's seen in Sydney ever. I already have at least 12 owners lined up with a couple of more in the wings. The most I have ever seen at one place was last year when we had 8 (with 2 apologies).

The event is to be held at Gladesville Reserve, off Crown Street, Henley (adjacent to Gladesville Bridge) from 9.00 am.
