The Winner of this Year’s Loan Car Initiative

Our winner of the loan car initiative this year is Ms Deborah Fry from Derbyshire. She was the outstanding candidate this year amongst many candidates applying to borrow the car for the 2018 season. We will hand over the keys at the restoration show on Sunday 25th March. She has promised to keep us all informed in our MM each month of her experiences with the car. I am sure we all look forward to meeting up with Deborah at shows and our own National Rally in August. Well done Deborah.

Sunday Scramble ‘Drive it Day’



Great News for Morris Minor SV Owners

Great news from the latest VSCC Newsletter.
The VSCC (Vintage Sports Car Club) has now added the 1931-1934 Morris Minor Side Valve car to their PVT (Post Vintage Thoroughbred) eligibility list. After many years of vigorous lobbying by Clubs, including Ian Grace’s Vintage Minor Register, this is fantastic news. Morris Minor owners have always seen it as an anomaly that the Austin Seven was included a few years ago but the little Morris was not.
The decision will not affect the Light Car & Edwardian Section eligibility which will remain solely for pre-1931 light cars in standard form.

Hilda Johnson


It is with regret that we announce the passing of Hilda Johnson, Register stalwart and widow of Ken who was a previous Vice-President of the club.

Hilda supported Ken for many years, providing active support both as a member of National and Midland Region Committees. She was a very much loved and respected member of the club and will be sadly missed. Our condolences go out to her family.

For any members wishing to pay their respects, Hilda’s funeral is at 13:00 Wednesday 3rd May 2017 at South Leicestershire Memorial Park and Crematorium, Foston Road, Countesthorpe, Leicestershire, LE8 5QP.

Club Chairman, John Ford, will represent The Morris Register.
