Such is the success of the MG Owners Club championship that it is being extended into a three class championship next year with separate grids where needed.

Class A will be for classic MGs, ie those built at Abingdon up to but not including the MG Metro. Class B will be for MG Metros and MG Maestro 1600s and class C will be for MG Maestro and MG Montego 2-litres. No turbos will be allowed. It is expected that the classic class will have its own race and classes B and C will have theirs.

For further details, forms, rules etc. send a large SAE to the MGOC, 2-4 Station Road, Swavesey, Cambridge, CB4 5QZ. Tel. 0954 31125. Fax. 0954 32106.

Details of the popular Haynes Classic Tour, which will go from Longleat House to the Sparkford Motor Museum on May 6, 1990 are already available from Mrs Trevorrow on 0749 5347. The tour is for cars of 1945-1965 with 30 especially selected later ones.

Mike Walters, the ex-Lotus Service Training Manager, will be presenting a new seminar in the long running series of Club Lotus Technical Education Workshops entitled Classic Lotus Restoration. The location is the Hankstone Park Hotel, Weston-Under-Redcastle, Shrewsbury, Salop on Sunday, November 12.

The seminar is free for current Club Lotus members, but all owners or prospective owners of classic Lotus cars are welcome to attend at £5 for the whole day of £3 for a morning or afternoon.

This is an ideal opportunity for the prospective investor in a classic Lotus to gain important knowledge that will help with both purchasing and restoring a suitable car. More information from the Club Lotus Press Officer on 0362 694459.

In the Citroen Car Club’s magazine, Citroeman, it has been reported that there has been a significant increase in the number of enquiries the club has received at various shows this year about 2CVs, Tractions and DSs. With the marques increasing share of the UK market, it is felt that new AX and BX owners, bitten by the Citroen bug for the first time, are now wanting to find out about older models. Details of club membership from David C. Saville, 49 Mungo Park Way, Orpington, Kent BR5 4EE.

When the local council succeeded in preventing the use of Bruntingthorpe Proving Ground for all motor club activities, it was a great blow to the Marcos Owners Club which had to cancel its test day at very short notice. All those who had pre-booked should have received a circular as well as have been reimbursed. If not Colin Feyerabend at 62 Culverley Road, Catford, London S.E.6. should be contacted.

The Club is now searching for an alternative venue for 1990.

The continuing popularity of the MCC Classic Trials is shown by an entry of 132 motorcycles and over 140 cars for the recently concluded Edinburgh Trial. The MCC Silverstone races take place on October 28 and the 62nd 260 mile Exeter Trial, for which entries close on November 1, on January 5/6, 1990.

Entry forms from G. Margetts, 21 Madresfield Road, Malvern, Worcs. WR14 2AS.

The Singer Owners Club will be present at the Bolney Stage on the A23 just south of Crawley for the annual London to Brighton Veteran Car Run on Sunday November 5. Last year there were 25 Singers paraded on the lawn outside the pub and many more members arrived during the day. For details contact John Grey on 0420 23175.

The Register of Unusual Micro-Cars covers any three or four-wheeled road vehicles with an engine size of 750cc or under, or small electric road vehicles manufacturcd after 1947, most particularly those makes not at present catered for by any other club or register, although no make is excluded.

An effort is now being made to collect as much information as possible on all microcars as well as keep abreast of any new models or prototypes being made today. Edwin and Jean Hammond would be pleased to receive original sales literature, manuals, magazine articles and contemporary photographs at School House Farm, Hawkenbury, near Staplehurst, Kent TN12 0EB. Tel. 0580 891377.
