Magnette60 9-11 August

This was the main Register event of 2013, to celebrate the 60th anniversary of the Z Magnette launch. For more than a year a small sub-committee (Paul Batho, David Halliday, Grant Howlett, Trevor Jones, Peter Martin and Stephen Tickell) had been meeting in London pubs to plan the event. The format chosen was similar to the successful Gerald Palmer centenary weekend in 2011 (GP100)

Norwich weekend 3-4 August

Compared to previous years, attendance at the Shorten’s in Lenwade was obviously boosted by the early arrival of overseas visitors for the 60th, with the furthest travelled almost certainly being Peter and Jane Yarham from New Zealand .

AGM and AWC show - 7 July

The AGM at Kimber House on 7 July wasn’t particularly well supported, hopefully just because the membership are entirely happy with the present committee and how the Register is being run - we’d still like you to turn up though and tell us that ! Could also be that the Abingdon Works Centre show with which we had intentionally coincided was a stronger draw, given the warm weather .

Mid Morning Run - Williamstown to Inverleigh 30th June 2013

A  few pictures of our MMR and a few words:
Our Mid Morning Run gathering venue seen as the sun begins to break through the light fog. The car park looks over the Yarra river , close to the bay, towards the city of Melbourne. Of the Y and Magnettes we had one Y Type, four Z Type Magnettes [Patricks Red ZA arrived after this photo] and one Mk III Magnette

MG Live - 15th & 16th June  2013

As you know by now, 2013 marks the 60th anniversary since the launch of the Z series Magnette & things are certainly shaping up very well ahead of the main anniversary event itself.
At MG Live, we had a total of 28 different cars attending across the weekend which is more than we have had at the Silverstone event since 2005!
