Sprite 60th

2018 is the 60th anniversary of the introduction of the Austin-Healey Sprite Mk 1 – the ‘Frogeye’. The Midget and Sprite Club are celebrating this by having a Birthday Bonanza at Wroxall Abbey Hotel on Sun Aug 26th 2018. We are planning to have a massive meeting of Spritely things and all Sprites, Midgets and their derivatives are welcome to attend. There will be trade stalls and events on the show field at Wroxall and we are expecting a massive array of Spridgets on the day. Entrance will be just £10 (£15 after 31/05/2018) and will include a Commemoration Rally Plaque.

Royal Lancashire Show

Neil has received the following letter from Anthony Taylor from the LAC who is coordinating the classic cars at the show.

Dear All,

Thank you for your e-mails and offers of bringing your cars along to display at the Royal Lancs. Show, on your choice of day/s. The Show Committee has put a geat deal of effort into making this a memorable event as it returns to Salesbury Hall Showground beside the River Ribble.

The Lancashire Automobile Club has a good sized area located on the inner perimeter of the Showground. LAC will be at the Show each day and we will have “strong ” gazebo in our area.

We have been advised this week that cars must be on the Stand by 8.30am each day and cannot leave until 5.30pm. Health and Safety Rules demand this of any vehicles within the Show Ground.

I am still awaiting the tickets and these should be posted to you this week, on the basis of two per car.


Anthony Taylor
