Chairman’s Chat – 17th May 2022

Writing these notes Bristol is currently in the midst of a thunderstorm but hopefully brighter and dry weather is forecast for this weekend and the Wye Valley Social Run on Sunday 22nd May, check out the link for more details and please let Jim Lott know if you’re planning on attending – details are on the event page.

The decision on which car to use for the run has made for me as the Midget suffered from battery and alternator issues at Wiscombe Hillclimb this weekend, so bad I never even made it as far as the startline for first practice. Hopefully this weekend I can get things sorted ahead of my next event at Prescott at the end of the month but for now the TF will get a run out.

Looking further ahead there is a busy weekend in June that sees both our summer picnic with a visit to the Haynes Motor Museum and MG Live at Silverstone. Its a shame that we have this clash in the diary, Silverstone were very late confirming the date for MG Live by which stage we already had our booking confirmed with Haynes which we were unable to move. For 2023 we’re working with main club to do our best not to have any conflicts.

We will be publishing more details soon on the summer picnic and I’ll include links in a future chairman’s chat.

For those attending MG Live there are two competitive events taking part both ideal for beginners and require no modifications to your car. On Saturday the California Cup auto test is taking place with classes for MGs of all ages. Committee member and previous class winner Mike Angwin will once again and is looking for SW Members to join him and form a team for the event.

In Sunday there will be an autosolo taking place, very similar to the California Cup although the autosolo is an all-forwards autotest which means an easier course ideal for beginners. As I’m away sprinting with the speed championship on the Saturday, I’ll miss the California Cup but I’m planning on heading to Silverstone on the Sunday and enter the autosolo.

Details about both events and how to enter are on the main club website. For the California Cup if you’re interested in making up a SW Centre team then please email Mike

Hope to see some of you on the Wye Valley Run

Ian –
