Cecil Kimber Birthday Run
The marking of the anniversary of MG's Cecil Kimber (1988 - 1945) is a traditional event for MG clubs across the globe. For those not familiar with the history of this leading UK automotive figure (and former Managing Director of MG), a good summary can be found on this Wikipedia page.
For 2019, the Cecil Kimber Run will take the form of a grass Motorkhana, held in connection with a picnic at which the traditional cutting and serving of Cecil Kimber themed cake will occur. Full details are:
- Location is Trentham Memorial Park, noting that access is via Moonshine Park (entry off Moonshine Road); see satellite map
- This is a free event for MGCC members;
- Long sleeved clothing (pants and tops), plus closed shoes are required;
- All competitors are required to be members of a Motorsport NZ affiliated Club (MGCC is one). If not, the MGCC can issue a day licence for competitors who must not have participated in more than one Motorkhana previously;*
- 9am start, with drivers briefing at 9.30am;
- Four to five course will be marked out;
- A minimum of two-runs each, three if numbers allow; and
- Picnic lunch with cake after the morning session.
