Current exceptional situation in the UK

The current Lock-down of the UK due to the COVID-19 virus is having a dramatic impact on all sporting and leisure events and will continue to do so over the coming months. 

Consequently the Club has put on hold and is leaving its registration for Classic Car events and the like with the Organisers to contact us again when and if it is considered safe by the UK Government to once again be able to enjoy our cars and participate at local and national events. 

Please look back from time to time for any updates on this situation, when I hope to be able to bring you some good news in the future.

In the mean time say safe and follow the UK Governments advice and instructions which can be found by clicking on the link here or on this websites Home Page.

The Owners Club & Register at the Classic Car Show 2020

 

Following considerable thought given to the participation at this years Show, it has been decided to return to the previous bi-annual participation and not to take part in this years event. The Club feels that the current Covid-19 pandemic does not sit well with encouraging participation and the possible associated risk to owners/friends & family who would cover the Club's Stand or indeed just visit.

Consequently I have informed the organisers and requested a place at the 2021 Show. this will also have the benefit of allowing more time for the completion of some restorations underway, of cars not previously seen at the Show.

However the Show is always a memorable visit and despite the reduced number of participants will undoubtedly offer much for the enthusiasts. 

UK Owners Events

The Covid-19 pandemic has really had an impact on may of the events considered by owners in the UK. Whilst some events are now on recently planned to go-ahead, for many of us 2020 will be one of consolidation in the hope that 2021 will enable us to enjoy our cars to a fuller extent. 

For 2020, the London Concours at the Honourable Artillery Company in the centre of London on the 19th/20th August, will feature the early Unipower GT currently belonging to Tim Carpenter, in the Lost Marques class. 

 

As always, we would love to see as many of you along to support participation at such events that owners cars will be attending.

 

Overseas Owners Events

Our overseas Owners are always pretty active with their cars both on and off the track (given that Ernie said they never considered that the cars would go racing !), with both Duncan Charlton (Texas, USA) and Kelly & John Whittenauer (Kentucky, USA) currently racing their cars in various Championships over the Pond in the USA.  

 

In Japan, Unipower's feature often at various Classic events across the country. Most recently Chassis #UWF1024 was at the 60th Mini Celebration at the Fuji Circuit and at the Smiths Mini Meet in Osaka (1/12/2019). Any more info and pictures of other Unipower's in Japan, please contact the Register.
