Abingdon Works Motorsport Celebration takes shape

Plans for this new event to be held as part of the BMC & Leyland Show at the British Motor Museum are taking shape.

Although not a Mini Cooper Register event as such, club members are amongst a small organising group leading the way and, following a meeting at the Museum on the 7th, the following four features have been confirmed:

  • A BMC Competitions Department static display, consisting of Abington team race and rally cars, plus team support vehicles including two transporters.
  • An adjacent display with stands mounted by the single-make car clubs, including Mini Cooper Register, featuring period competition cars and replicas.
  • Veterans from BMC Comps, ST, Downton Engineering and Warwick Healey.
  • A programme, jointly mounted with the Historic Marathon Rally Group and TR Register, of talks, films and Q&A sessions. This will particularly feature the veterans.

The event now has its own dedicated Facebook page @AbingdonWMC where you can catch up with all the latest news.
