Peter Relph

It is my sad task to announce that Peter Relph sadly passed away yesterday, 12th October. Peter was a former editor of the Grey Mag and also of the PWA7C magazine. A long standing and staunch supporter of the Association, member of Pre War and the VSCC, he was a lover of all vintage machinery especially Austin Sevens. He will be sadly missed by many people. RIP Peter.

Historic 750 Formula News – August 2018

It is great to be able to report that the Historic formula is undergoing a remarkable upturn in numbers this season with both Mallory and Cadwell having capacity grids. A large part of this is the number of ‘new’ Austin 7 cars competing for the first time, including drivers who are making long journeys from the Continent to compete as the word gets around via Facebook etc.

A wet Cadwell last weekend saw some particularly exciting A7 racing with 8 Austins out of 24 formula cars lining up.

New Venture:

The VSCC (with a little encouragement) has challenged the Historic 750 Formula to take part in an All Austin 7 Race at Mallory Park next Saturday 11th August.

This will be the first time that such an event has been attempted in many years and the response has been marvellous with another full grid of 24 cars and reserves booked in.

There will be a full day the usual VSCC race action as well so why not bring your Austin 7 along to watch and enjoy the fun?

Discounted tickets are available for ‘750MC Members’ so email cplainjonesaustin7@gmail.com if you can make it.

New Association Secretary

We are delighted to welcome Paul Lawrence as our new Secretary. Paul is currently Secretary of the Cambridge Austin Seven Club and well known in Seven circles being a keen enthusiast with his much travelled Ruby and his RN saloon. Recently retired, Paul has started a new career in servicing and restoring Sevens. We look forward to working with Steve and can assure him of all the support he requires in this important post.

Postponed July 2018 Meeting

It is with sincere apologies that the meeting on July 8th will have to be cancelled. With several of the Officers being indisposed, either by illness, vacancy or other commitments, there is no one available to run the meeting.

It is intended to re-convene the meeting on Sunday August 5th and confirmation of that wil be sent out nearer the date. The distribution of the Association Magazines will be handled by post for all Clubs in this instance…

Once again, sincere apologies..
