Register 40th Anniversary celebration weekend - Somerset 12-13 July 2014

The Somerset Weekend to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Magnette Register formation started at 10am on a bright warm day at the revised and enlarged Haynes Motor Museum in Sparkford.

A great turnout of 14 Magnettes arrived together with Warren Marsh’s MGA and Roger French’s Gilbern Genie, as his Magnette was unable to make the trip, 4 other Magnette owners also attended without their cars due to ongoing restorations.

Silverstone MG90

The event formerly known as MG Live, was renamed MG90 this year to celebrate 90 years of MG. Perhaps this was the reason for a change of weather.  No rain, just lots of sunshine with very light winds. How did the Magnettes respond to the summer weather? 20 cars attended each day, resulting in a full reserved parking area but no overflow. It was good to see new owner Mike Swinn from Sheffield in his 1956 ZA FKS 550, plus one car from The Netherlands and one from Germany.

MGs in the Park 2014

The Oxfordshire MGOC event at the Cotswolds Wildlife Park near Burford has deservedly become a popular fixture in the Magnette calendar over the last 2 or 3 years, as it’s open to all enthusiasts to just turn up on the day, and the Park generously allow free entry to MG drivers.
