On the 7th July 2013 the Abingdon Works Centre will be staging a revival of the original Abingdon Works Car Show. An event which in the past has been held in the town and showcases all of the cars built at the Abingdon factory between 1930 and 1980. Naturally it will also include all marques of MG manufactured from 1925 until the present day. The event, which is in aid of charity, is being organised jointly with the Rotary Club of Abingdon and supported by the MG Car Club.
Vehicles that were built at the factory also include other names such as Austin Healey, Riley, Morris Minor ‘Woodies’ and some commercial vans all of which are invited to attend. Everybody will be welcome to the show, whether an owner or interested member of the public. The event will include an arena parade, traders, local businesses and other commercial suppliers, tuning, sports equipment and a display of vehicles from the original Factory Competitions Department together with catering and entertainment for all the family.
The show, on the banks of the River Thames, will also offer a great place for a picnic, a chance to visit the Abingdon Town Museum in the Old County Hall which incorporates the MG Museum. It is also planned to offer an optional road run around the old works test circuit.
If you could circulate the date of this event to your members it would be greatly appreciated. Further information will be published as the event develops together with entry forms. More information will also become available on our website www.mgabingdon.co.uk
