The Minor – Seven challenge July 2014

By June 14, 2020Headline News

Almost six years ago, the Network in conjunction with the Pre-war Austin Seven Club and The Automobile magazine organised The Minor – Seven Challenge. The event took place at the 100th Bomb Group’s Museum at Thorpe Abbotts,  Norfolk and took the form of a series of driving tests in which motoring journalist Matthew Bell thoroughly exercised an Austin Seven and a Morris Minor on the former WWII airfield. In this photo Matthew reverses the Austin Seven around a series of cones, with the photographer including Janie Maeers 1932 Minor Tourer (OY 3270) in the foreground. The resulting article appeared in the November 2014 edition of the magazine.
