Our GTorque Editor in action

 

Our GTorque Editor was seen in action at Sandown last week where he was volunteering for the Porsche 6 hour Regularity event.  He was on the pit wall and responsible for signalling to the drivers.  It was a bit wet and was NOT happy.

Annual General Meeting

What’s the big deal about March 2nd?!

For starters, it is the anniversary of the first non-stop around-the-world flight in 1949 by a B-52, Texas was granted independence from Mexico in 1836 and The Sound of Music movie premiered in 1965.

BUT

Tuesday 2nd March 2021 is a much more important date!

It’s our AGM of course.

Will you remember to come to the Hall of Agriculture at the Showgrounds? Good, because there will be nothing happening at our usual venue. Turn left into the showgrounds opposite the entrance to the Traffic Safety Centre, drive straight towards the oval where you are parking and a short walk on your right to the Hall. Simple.

Usual time of starting: 7.30pm

Remember your COVIDSafe conduct. Everyone must QR code on registering – assistance available even if you don’t have your smartphone.

Leave a space between yourself and other members from different households. Bring your mask in case it’s needed. No kissing please!

We are indoors for the meeting but there is no heating or cooling – please come prepared.

VALE – Ron Taylor

VALE – Ron Taylor.
Whilst not a member of our club there is some connection.
Ron passed away a few days ago after a long battle with cancer. He was a very well-known member of the MG fraternity in Sydney and restored around 30 MGs in his lifetime. Our own David Brett knew him and visited his car collection and then introduced him to Ray Abikhair who recently purchased two really interesting cars – a 1939 VA Tickford Drop Head Coupe (two-tone green) and a 1937 SA four door saloon (two-tone blue). These were the largest cars ever built by MG.
Thanks to David and Ray for sending this info.
