Drive it Day 2022
Sunday 24th April was National Drive your Classic Car Day. The MGCC (Lincolnshire Centre) organised a visit to the Walled Garden, Baumber with drive ins from Boston, Caistor, Lincoln and Dyke so that participants could enjoy a drive through the Lincolnshire Countryside in glorious sunshine and then meet together for a lunch. Thirty eight cars were booked in with a variety from MGs including TC, TFs, MGA, ZB Magnette, MGBs, MGC, MGB V8s, MGFs and modern TFs. Among the non-MGs that joined us included a Ford Zephyr, a Mustang and a modern Honda. Also present at the venue were the Austin 7 club which had about 10 cars for us to enjoy.
Participants were invited to undertake a walking Treasure Hunt which was won by Lynn Wright and David Stearn. Then followed a Pride of Ownership competition where the results were as follows
1st Steve Morris MG TF
2nd Mike Parker MG ZB varitone
3rd Ian Mackenzie MGBGTV8
4th Robert Taylor MGA
5th Bill Sharp MG TC
A very enjoyable day in the gardens and as a result of everyone’s participation the Car Club was able to donate a sizeable amount to the Walled Garden so that they could continue to provide such a wonderful attraction.
