The Pre-War Minor Network

A community for enthusiasts of the pre-war Morris Minor

Our rally is just six months away…

By | Headline News

Network rallies are not competitive in any way and are all about having fun with friends while also providing an opportunity for meeting fellow enthusiasts. Early June is (usually!) a great month for exercising almost 90-year-old machinery on roads that ideally suit our cars. To find out more visit our 2018 rally page here.

LV 975 1933 Minor fixed-head Saloon

Peter and Tilly Yates are further evidence (if it were needed) that Minors are for life. Peter has owned the car since his student days in the sixties and following  a restoration, has continued to use the car regularly for local Morris Register events around Loughborough and more recently at Network rallies. Unfortunately, drive train issues curtailed the car’s involvement in the 2016 and 2017  Network rallies but it didn’t seem to stop the car’s occupants seeing both rallies through to their conclusion. It is hoped that Peter, Tilly and LV 975 will be attending the 2018 Network rally and that Suffolk proves to be a more hospitable county than either Dorset or Rutland was for their Saloon.

Triple M corner no.75

By | Triple M corner

The Triple M series of MG’s all belong to a family of models that commenced with the 1929 MG Midget and continued through to the mid-thirties via a long string of four and six cylinder OHC engined cars that forged the marques identity.

The 1935 RSAC Scottish Rally took place between the 10th and 14th June. Sixteen MG’s took part including Midget BXA 23 which was driven by D.R.B. Duffy who bought it home in eighteenth position of the forty-one cars in his class that made it to the finish. The rally was as much a test of endurance than of skill as the event ran for four days through some of Scotland’s most picturesque but demanding terrain. (LATplate C6404)
