Autosolo Events 2019
For some time the Midland Centre has been looking for a site to run an Autosolo. This is a forward only version of an autotest ideal for unmodified road cars, they must be driven to the event and have an MOT, although this can vary depending on the regulations. The rules allow for a passenger as young as 12 and a driver aged 14, though not in the same car!  Curborough is the venue we have in mind, and the MGCC already has an invitation from the Cannock and District Car Club to compete there. If you want a fun day out then visit www.cdcc.org.uk or see them on Facebook. An ideal opportunity to exercise your daily driver and still get to work on Monday morning.   

There is one date remaining in 2019 which is open to MG Car Club members. Entry fees are around 30 per driver -

28 December  -  The 'Stuff The Turkey' PCA

Other events may be open to MGCC members, but may not be held at Curborough. Anyone interested in taking part in any of these events should contact the Cannock & District Car Club directly. Their website contains details of entry forms and regulations. Please refer to link below -  https://www.cdcc.org.uk/  -  and then click on the 'Events/Social' tab.


Holly Run 15 December
The West Midlands Morgan 3-Wheeler Club will once again be organising their annual end-of-season Holly Run on Sunday, 15 December.

For more information, please contact organiser Dave Anscombe on 01384 372307

Midland Centre Welsh Rallye - 15-17 May 2020
"Nestled in the beautiful Shropshire countryside, the four-star Telford Hotel and Golf Resort property overlooks the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge. The 17th century Darby House offers a choice of spectacular bedrooms with period features. Set in 170 acres of stunning grounds with an 18-hole golf course, a 24-hour gym and recently refurbished spa, our welcoming hotel is the perfect destination for a relaxing break. There are also contemporary rooms in the modern part of the hotel. With eight fully-equipped conference rooms and acres of landscaped gardens, we are a popular destination for both meetings and weddings. We are a just a 5 minute drive from Junction 4 of the M54, making us an easily accessible location. We also have 200 onsite complimentary parking spaces, for guests traveling by car."

And that's just the hotel! Yes it is the Welsh Rallye but this time with a difference - starting like we used to, nearer to home in England for a great drive into Mid Wales but this time to return  back to our 4* hotel in Coalport, near Ironbridge. 

In our quest to offer you a value for money weekend we have booked the above hotel in the borders. This gives the route planners for the Saturday Touring Run a bit of a challenge to get you to and from mid Wales via some interesting roads. Still in the planning stage, it currently looks as if it will be about the usual mileage, but with a few more main roads so keeping the driving time down. We are sure that you will enjoy. For those that prefer a shorter/quicker drive, there should be the usual quicker alternative return after the Tea Stop. 

Sunday has yet to be decided, but you might opt for a plunge in the pool or into the Ironbridge George or a visit to Blist's Hill Museum is very worthwhile.

When and Where? I hear you ask.

It is on the weekend of 15-17th May 2020 with a package of Dinner, Bed & Breakfast on Friday and Saturday at The Telford Hotel, Gt Hay Drive, Sutton Heights, Coalport, Telford, TF7 4DT. Prices are a bit up on previous events mainly due to us going up market as we realise that some of you like a bit of 'posh'. Please click the link below to download an entry form -
