Hi listers,

Good for the European guys & dolls:

Be present at the TT racing track at Assen in the north of the Netherlands.
Data: September 11, 12, 13.

Pre-war racers will be there like at the Zolder track.
Great fun!
Including several Bentleys, Alvis, of course MG's, etc. etc.

Last year there were so many MG's, they did not fit into the parking lot!
Be there!



'71 BGT
