RIP Alan Blundell

We are very sad to report that our club member Alan Blundell died unexpectedly on Wednesday 27th January. Alan had the lovely SS Jaguar Old No. 8 Replica which he built some years ago. He has raced at our November Classic a couple of times and in 2020 at our January Drivers' Training Day Bill Denize reports that he was lucky enough to go out with Alan in the SS for a few circuits around the Manfeild track. It was a beautifully built car and he had a number of Jags in his collection of cars. Several years ago the OSH Group enjoyed a very pleasant few hours over drinks and a BBQ at Alan and Marie's lovely home (since sold) they had on the hills above Waikanae where they had extensive workshop facilities for all his car projects. Alan was a very clever engineer. He will be much missed on club events.

Motorkhana

The Motorkhana is set to take place at Trentham Memorial park on Sunday 20th June. If using 'what3words', simply type in 'supermarkets.elders.clod' and navigate your way with Google maps. Google maps appear to be better than I-maps at this game. Without what3words, take Barton Avenue or Barton Drive off Fergusson Drive, head for the public toilets then go past them towards the river where you will find the course. Bring your own refreshments!

The event will start at 10.00 but please arrive at 09.00 to complete formalities.

There will be three Motorkhana courses and one Auto Cross. Each Motorkhana run will all be on grass and will consist of negotiating a course laid out with traffic cones and run against the clock. No special preparation or equipment is necessary apart from wearing cotton underwear and over garments plus leather shoes. Jeans and cotton seat shirts are fine. No polyester or nylon. Great fun for all the family!

The Auto Cross course will be partly on grass and partly on tarmac. A little more serious and faster and safety helmets are recommended.

This event is being organised by Ron Robertson and he has circulated you all with the Supplementary Regulations and an entry form. We have to comply with Motor Sport New Zealand to run this sort of event but the actual competition is pretty light hearted and a rare opportunity to spin your car about if you want to.

Choose your events on the day but don't forget to register your interest in advance by completing and returning the entry form - and making your payment before the 19th June.

Any queries please contact Peter Fleming (022-415-0038, bounceabout007@gmail.com) or Ron (0274-439-969, ron@mgcarclub.org.nz).
