As an alternative to us oop north rather than traverse the length of the country to the MMOC Nationals, how about lovely Ullswater in the North lakes for the Hot Rod and Hills event. See here for last years and look out for this years. I'll post when I get firm details.
Back in the day I conquered all 4 major Lake District passes in a 948cc Minor. Honister is the fiercest, but Wrynose, Hardknott and kirkstone are tough as well. If you're running standard drums, a spare set of brake shoes or a change of underwear is a sensible precaution.
Shame it clashes with Scottish Rally, as I would like to go to both, but as I would class myself as a hot rodder, rather than a Minor enthusiast, I know which I personally I would attend, as it does just come down to personal choice.
Well I have taken the plunge and got the days off organised and have booked a camping pitch from Thurs 8th - Sunday 11th at the Park Foot Caravan Park, Cumbria and sent a confirmation e-mail to the event organiser, so bar the ankle fusion operation I'm getting in early New Year being delayed or me taking a bit longer than expected to recover, I'm going!
