Spring's Best Classic Car Show
27 - 29 March 2020

The MGB Register will be at this event for the first time. You can click the book now image above to get your discounted tickets for Saturday and Sunday. Discounted tickets are £19.50 per Adult of £46 per family (2 adults & 3 children 5-15).

Come and see the MGB Register in Hall 5 stand 535, we will be fitting new discs and pads to our Registrars MGB also a cooling fan to another MGB.

The restored Marathon MGB which was unveiled at this show 2 years ago will be on display. This is an ongoing restoration with updates still going on.
As usual the day was well attended, as for many this is the first event of the year when you brush the cobwebs off the car to meet up with like-minded friends.  There was a good mix of Trade and Club stands covering everything to purchase from nuts and bolts to body shells. 

We had a steady flow of visitors to the stand, with some from Germany, Luxembourg and Switzerland, asking both technical and general questions. 

3 cars were displayed on the stand a 68 GT,  a 74 Roadster and a 79 GT these covered the development of the car through its production years. All of which were of great interest, particularly to those undertaking rebuilds.
Look out for the full report in the Safety Fast Magazine.
