THE scope of the club is to be considerably enlarged, and a series of fresh activities are being planned by the new Hon. Secretary, Mr. Alan C. Hess, who is well known in the sporting world.

The M.G. Club is one of the largest of the one-make clubs, and every M.G. owner will find a great deal of interest in meeting other owners and discussing experiences and plans for Trials, etc.

Any M.G. owner who cares to obtain further particulars should write to Mr. Alan C. Hess, whose address is 62, London Road, Reading.


The next trial on this club’s programme is the “Guy Fawkes” Trial, which will be open to several other clubs, including the Light Car Club, and all clubs in the S. Midland Centre A.C.U.

The Trial will be held on November 6th, and is open to cars, three wheelers and motor cycles. The start will take place at the Robin Hood Hotel, Botany Bay, at 10.30 a.m., after which the competitors will have to cover a course of approximately 70 miles.

The secretary’s address is Mr. E. Pottier, of 48, Shernhall Street, Walthamstow, E.17.


The annual London-Gloucester Trial is now a firm favourite among regular trial competitors. This year it will take place on December 10th, starting from Staines at 12.15 p.m. The event is open to members of the following clubs : Brighton & Hove Motor Club, the Bugatti Owner’s Club, Light Car Club, M.G. Car Club, Mid. Surrey Car Club, Riley Car Club, ” Sunbac ” Club, Women’s Automobile & Sports Association, West Kent Motor Club, and the J.C.C.

Low, and Mr. H. F. S. Morgan.
