MSCC Mendip July Noggin – The New Inn, Blagdon -15th July

Beautiful Bladgon sunshine tempted thirty seven Morganeers, with seventeen Morgans, out for an early pre-dinner drink and natter overlooking Bladgon Lake.  Although we were a large number ‘The New Inn’ came up trumps with both food and service.  A great evening was had by all.

Thrill On The Hill, Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb 11th June 2015

Simply hundreds of much loved and well polished Morgans and their owners turned up at the Shelsley Walsh Hill Climb track for this years ‘Thrill on the Hill’. The track’s paddocks where filling up from early morning onwards with a bountiful collection of Morgans which produced a many-hued carnival of splendid colours across the paddocks.

From three-wheelers new and old, Plus Fours, Super Sports, Plus Eights; there really was something for everyone throughout the day and soon the starting line became black with tyre marks as each Morganeer sped their steed up the hill to victory. With adrenalin pumping, tyres screeching and that satisfying Morgan engine babble as it pulls up the hill really underlines why this superb Morgan event is called ‘Thrill On The Hill’!

 

Once that green lights up, there is not holding back on that throttle.

Chris in his Morgan +8 Limited Edition LeMans arrived today to tackled the fabled track and for his first run he had Paul as his Co-Driver, who was armed with a stop watch! They rolled up to the starting line and then once the all-clear was given they powered up the hill. Sad to say that the only photograph we got of this was of the pair driving back down the hill after their run! Chris’s first run time was 47 seconds.

The second gallop up the hill for Chris, he had Sue as his Co-Driver, for which we managed to photograph both their trip up the hill as well as their drive down the track. This time Chris achieved the time of 51 seconds, maybe he gained a slower time because he had the chairwoman of our club as his passenger?! Very gentlemanly of you, Chris.

During the day there was also an aerial acrobatics show, which, for a brief moment distracted us from the classic cars which filled the paddocks.

 

A superb performance.

It wasn’t just petrol engines that hummed around the paddock; one Morgan stole the show by creating a ghostly silence! I am of course referring to the new concept car of Morgan’s which is an eclectic three-wheeler!

All in all it was a great day out with many wonderful slights to behold!
