We had the pleasure of having the SDLC car club in for a visit last week. We put on the tea and biscuits and showed them around our workshops before they headed on to a country pub for lunch. Luckily the weather was superb. We always enjoy seeing an eclectic mix of classic cars.
This Saturday past we played host to the Hastings MG Club’s rolling road day. Due to some un foreseen circumstances a few members were unable to make it along, however, those who came had a splendid time, and the smaller number meant we could spend more time with each car. Out of the 5 cars on the rollers in the morning for power runs, 3 went back on the rollers in the afternoon for a tune. Some fine adjustments to the needles in the SU carbs saw great improvements in engine performance. Plenty of tea and coffee and a tour of the premises and museum rounded off an very enjoyable day. A great down to earth club with some old school charm. You can find their website here: http://www.hastings-mg-club.org.uk

Last night I went down to Madeira Drive in Brighton to check out the Sussex Sports and Classic Car Club. A local meeting held on the first Thursday of the month between April and October. The evening event is perfectly situated on the famous Brighton strip. Teas, coffees and toilets are provided by the Jag Art Gallery. Last night was the last meeting of the year and despite it getting a little cold and dark it still attracted a decent handful of cars. Notably a stunning Mk2 Lotus Seven, 3 synchro MGB roadster, MGA, Healey 3000, Morgan Plus 4 and a lovely old Rolls Royce Silver Shadow among others. An enjoyable evening with some friendly chaps and some nice cars, what more could you ask for. The Brighton based clubs website can be found here. See you next year.
