Midland, Leicester and Rutland Area news

Leics/Rutland May News

By the time you are reading this months courier we will have just completed Drive-it-Day.
I hope it was a good day for everyone up and down the UK.
A fair few of the L&R gang are planning to go to the Bicester Heritage Centre as I know that folks from other areas are too. I don't think any of our gang have been before but it gets good reviews.
The Great Central Railways Easter Vintage Festival will have happened too over the Easter weekend. Classic cars, steam trains, real ale and fast food...what's not to like?
On Sunday 13th April Chris, Howard and Tony attended the Daventry Classic car day as did others from the Northants area. I couldn't go. Chris won the deputy lord mayors cup for his GT6 and a nice cup and prize with it! Well done Chris.
John Edwards has bought another Spitfire, a MK3 one family owned from new. We will wait and see what the nutter does with it but it will be out of the ordinary I'm certain.
I have sold my 2.5 Pi estate as I couldn't really cope with all the negative comments about it! It seems these days that people are more and more critical about our cars and pick on the slightest thing wrong with it. Nothing short of perfection will do these days or so it seems.
Talking of perfection, Steve and Dee had their TR250 on the Practical Classics stand at the restoration show this year as they got down to the last six in the year long competition. It was all down to on line votes in the end and I think the winner was very media savvy. They enjoyed the experience and being on the stand was very well deserved as the car is stunning AND they did virtually the whole thing themselves including the respray.
Moving forward we have;
Sun 5th May.  Catton Hall.
Sun/Mon 5/6 May Notts classic car and motorcycle show. Thoresby Park.
11&12 May.  Great Central Railways second classic event of the year at Quorn Station, Leicestershire. This really is one of the best steam railway groups in the country.
Thursday 16 May. The first Greetham Gathering at Greetham Community Centre which is our own venue for our SUNSHINE RALLY on the first weekend in August. 
17-20 May is of course Spa Classic.
19th May is the Crich Classics at the Tramway museum. A lovely day out but most of us will be attending the Standard Triumph Day at Wroxall Abbey. A must do.
We have six cars going with lots of other areas going too. If you have never been then you must try this event! It's magical!
Sun 16th June. Loughborough town centre car show. Book through Eventbrite.
Thurs 20th June. Greetham Gathering, Greetham community centre.
Sunday 23 June.
Our group has a day out planned to go to Bourton-on-the-Water to the car museum. The small car park is full but there is parking available at the near-by British Legion for £3. We will have a lunch time picnic in the blazing June heat and stop for dinner on the way home.
That will do for now.
Keep running on 4/6/8.
Neil Spencer.
