Pride of Longbridge 2013


I was delighted to attend the Pride of Longbridge on Saturday. By respecting our community’s heritage, we can help build our community’s future. 

I was also fortunate enough to present the prizes with Simon Bennett from Longbridge’s MG Sales Centre for the very first MG CD Racer Competition.

The MG CD Racers event was organised jointly by ALF, MG Motor and the MGCC whose Rocker Box racing ramp was used. The models had to be home built, use CDs or DVDs as wheels and powered only by the gravity of the ramp on the 6 metre long course.

With the MG CD Racers: (L to R) Tom Watts age 12 – Best Decorated Model; Joe Cowen age 10 – Overall Winner; Oliver Richardson age 11 – 2nd place; Molly Stanley age 10 – with her racer ‘Con 8’.
