Autosolo Events 2020
'Autosolo' 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! MGCC members have an invitation from the Cannock and District Car Club to enter their events. If you want a fun day out then visit http://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. Other events may be open to MGCC members. 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 this link www.cdcc.org.uk - and then click on the 'Events/Social' tab. Events already pencilled in for 2020 are as follows -

E10 Fuel Update from the FBHVC
Earlier in the year the FBHVC responded to a consultation on the introduction of E10 petrol. This was in fact the second consultation on E10, the first, in 2018, was about what the Government should do to meet its obligation to introduce E10. The more recent one about how it should do it. The Federation responded in detail to the first consultation. After very careful consideration and a survey of our members our main request was for a 97 RON E5 protection grade fuel. We also made some suggestions regarding labeling and warnings. It was very apparent from the second consultation that all our points had been noted and acted upon so that was duly acknowledged in our further response. 

Since then Sir Greg Knight MP, chairman of the All-Party Parliamentary Historic Vehicles Group, has asked a written Parliamentary question regarding the protection grade and was assured by a DfT Minister that the government recognised that historic vehicles needed such a fuel. A few days later our President, Lord Steel, asked a similar Written Parliamentary Question. In that case the DfT reply went further and stated that the Government intended to make the continued availability of the protection grade fuel a legal requirement for five years, which is the longest period permitted before a review.

We have also learned from petroleum industry sources that the industry is very happy to supply this grade and that whilst the requirement will be for 97 RON minimum it is in practice more likely to be 99.

 

Covid-19 Rules & Regulations
Hello everyone. The Midland Centre has previously posted information and advice here regarding Covid-19 rules, regulations and requirements. However, as these rules are constantly changing it is becoming more difficult to stay current, it is therefore possible that any advice we post here may be out-of-date, and this could cause problems for our members and our committee. As a result, the only advice we will offer here is that members should keep as up-to-date as possible regarding C-19 rules, check with the organisers of any events which members may be thinking of attending, and refer to the MGCC's main website for the current information. Members should also refer to the MGCC e-bulletin.
