over the weekend. Over 700 vehicles attended over the two days. Nine MVA Clubs had adjoining stands alongside the arena, allowing a selection of other Morris-related vehicles to be seen by the large number of classic car enthusiasts attending.  Representative vehicles from each club competed for the MVA Award for Best in Show.  A 1953 MG TD from the Octagon Car Club was deemed by two experienced Concours Judges to be the 2016 winner.

MVA RALLY 2016 WR STAND 4There was plenty to see and do all weekend with arena events staged by the MMOC. Entertainment was provided each evening and the weekend was rounded off with an acrobatic flying display of two Pitt Special S 1D bi-planes above the rally field.  The Wolseley Register regalia stall was well-supported and hospitality was provided under the gazebo. It was a great inter-club weekend. Thanks to all who brought their Wolseleys or other cars to the Show.
