Bountiful…

With days getting shorter and the weather becoming less settled, fewer opportunities for extended runs present themselves. Recently, Peter Brock made hay (or should that be ‘straw’) while the sun shone when he took his 1934 Morris Minor Four-door Saloon for such a trip around part of rural Northumberland, seemingly at the tail-end of the local harvest.

Time to reflect…

Philip Butland has had more than his fair share of troubles with AXC 115, his 1934 EW Hornet Special. Following an engine rebuild, the car is now roadworthy once again and is seen here parked adjacent to a ford in the Ashdown Forest, Sussex.

Turn left, the Waveney has risen…

Dudley Stammers is about to leave the B1118 in his 1932 Minor Two-seater (KFF 165) to follow the path of the River Waveney through the Suffolk countryside. Rachael Anderson clearly indicates the driver’s intentions – this while the crew were taking part in the Network’s recent Two Breweries Tour.

East Anglia is famously flat and in places almost prairie like. However, there are also parts of Central England with a similar topography to that just a little further eastward. This Martin Gregory photograph of his 1931 Minor Coachbuilt Saloon (UF 7090) was taken in Northamptonshire and illustrates perfectly that similarity.

Two breweries run…

A late summer (or should that be early autumn?) run between a Suffolk and a Norfolk brewery was well attended and took place under largely blue skies. In all, ten cars and their crews took part in what was a leisurely amble through the beautiful Waveney Valley countryside. Here, a 1932 Minor Two-seater (WD 4459) exits the B1118 heading toward Weybread. (Apologies to the unnamed crew, as the note carrying this information exited the ‘cubby’ of the editor’s Semi-Sports on the return journey!) More photos at the foot of  this page.

Is bigger always better?

Derek Brockway‘s Morris Eight Tourer parks up alongside John Paternoster‘s 1929 Minor version on Saturday June 9th 2018. This overhead view perfectly illustrates the difference in size between the two models.

It’s ‘The Marches’ for 2020…

The Network’s 2020 annual rally next June (5th-7th) is to be held in and around the England- Wales border region known as the Welsh Marches. The event has been organised by Tony and June Adlard and will be based upon the Herefordshire village of Titley. Full details can be found on the new rally webpage here.

OK so Ken Martin, the owner of this 1930 Minor Coachbuilt Saloon (VX 4590) does not reside in this gated mansion tucked away in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside, but the car does not look at all out of place in such salubrious surroundings.
