Euro Day 2017

With bad weather playuing the organizing club, MG Car Club Hunter region, this year’s Euro Day was held at the McDonald Jones Stardom instead of Lambton Park. It is a difficult thing to stage a car show on a hard surface like a car park, it always feels like you at the local shopping centre all be it back in time. A good number of cars and clubs showed up to put their cars on display but it was hard to say whether numbers were up or down on previse years.

Yellow Duck Motorsport was represented by a TR7 Sprint, which was a late decision as the MK I 2500 originally planned had a mechanical problem the day before, that meant the Display trailer also had to stay at home.

All British Day 2017

A fine winter’s day greeted participants forthis years All British Day, but numbers seemed to be down on passed years. Unlike last year clubs didn’t seem to go to very much effort to put on a display it was more like a car park than a display day. Having said that there was still a lot of great British cars parked all over the football field of King School to admirer.

Yellow Duck Motorsport was represented by aTriumph MK I Sedan parked amongst the Triumph Sports Owners Association Display.
