Its open body enabling all manner of unusually shaped loads to be transported as illustrated here. On this occasion, ‘SV’ was captured on camera carrying a test shipment of lances for the local Yeovil ‘Knights of the Round Table’ re-enactment group.

Honestly, it is fun …

By Headline News

Competing in a Minor can be fun – even when it’s blowing a gale and the driving rain is stinging your face. If you find that hard to believe just ask Alistair Bond and Tom his young navigator. It was he who was tasked with plotting a route under these conditions while taking part in the recent LC&ES Welsh weekend activities in Alistair’s 1930 Morris Minor Semi-Sports (IA 9142).

Attending the centenary …

The VSCC are currently celebrating the Centenary of the Royal Automobile Club Light Car Trials which were first held in 1924. The Welsh Weekend run by their Light Car & Edwardian Section (LC&ES), based upon the town of Llandrindod Wells, will include two tours and a trial on the weekend’s menu. Although greatly outnumbered by the Austin Seven community, there is plenty of Minor interest along with a smattering of MG Midget representation. ‘Networker’ Alistair Bond is taking part and has sent a sequence of images, this one included.

Way out West …

… OK South West. The last occasion a Network rally was held this far West in the U.K. was in 2016 when our rally HQ was based in Marnhull, Dorset. This year see’s a return to the West Country when the Scrumpy Rally takes us to the picturesque Somerset town of Chard. This Kate Martin photo, taken in the village of Ashmore, provides a reminder of the 2016 rally’s Sunday tour.

A Minor in Blackpool?

By Headline News

This image surfaced while searching for another item. It depicts a 1930 Morris Minor Tourer (ET 6050) with long-term Minor and MG enthusiast Jim Peacop at the wheel taking part in a VSCC rally (?). The image is almost certainly a scan of a non-digital photograph. Can anyone help with identifying when this image was taken along with its location and event?

Spring(ish) …

Springlike weather is threatening to replace the miserable wet winter endured across most of the U.K. Bedfordshire based Trevor Wilkinson decided ‘enough was enough’ and took to the byways in his 1934 Morris Minor Two-seater (UN 6979), the sunglasses proving that the great golden orb did at least make an appearance!

Minor ‘finds’ bonanza in New Zealand …

By Headline News

John McDonald from Christchurch, New Zealand reports that Morris Minors continue to surface across the country. The three cars represented here are all recent finds. Only the blue 1934 Saloon (RC 1232) has been positively identified to date, while the red 1932 roadster carried the N.Z. registration KB 1932 and engine no. 34937 although its chassis no. remains unknown. (This car has recently sold) Tantalisingly, the VIN plate for the second 1934 Saloon (AX 4589) is visible on the car’s bulkhead, but is sadly unreadable from the photograph.

Memories from Around the Edge …

By Headline News

During the spring and summer of 2015 a dozen Minorists took part in the ‘Around the Edge Challenge’ attempt, a charity run in our cars, its aim to circumnavigate the entire English border, while raising funds for the Macmillan Cancer Support charity. That it was completed owed much to the efforts of all concerned but particularly, to Toby Sears and Peter Brock who covered 650+ and 800+ miles respectively in their Minors and who both contributed towards the huge sum of £7000 we raised as a result. Here Peter Brock is captured resting from his toils at the wheel alongside a field of oilseed rape while his 1934 Minor Four-door Saloon (AAO 463) sizzles away gently on the verge.
