SAMROA congratulates the Austin 7 Club of South Australia on their 60th anniversary and their service to motorsport thru their timing team and Modern Regularity events, and for those memorable Mallala Masters events. Below is from the CAMS website.
The Austin 7 Club of South Australia is having a big celebration in October and rightly so, for in 2013 the club celebrates its 60th year.
The club has big things planned to celebrate, with the festivities starting 20 October.
A Static Display at the seaside suburb of Glenelg, a 5 day York Peninsula Tour, a Modern regularity round at Mallala and what would a Birthday be without a big birthday bash?
The Austin 7 Club of S.A is staging its Official Birthday Dinner at Marion Hotel on 27 October.
In 1953, a group of people keen to foster motoring activities centred on the Austin Seven motor car, got together and the Austin Seven Club of S.A. was formed.
They rebuilt their Austins for road use and at weekends used them in road trials and sprints.
Since those early days, the club has grown into one of the larger car clubs in South Australia and its members have been prominent in local and Australian motor sport.
The Austin 7 Club of S.A. Inc. is an ‘All Cars Club’. It caters for those people who like to get involved in restoration of vehicles and motor sport.
The club caters for members who have an interest in rebuilding and restoring all ‘old’ cars – not necessarily only Austin Sevens.
Once rebuilt and running, these cars are used on touring runs, held each month. These runs are either organised by the Club or run in conjunction with other clubs.
The Club has a service which offers members assistance in obtaining spares for Austin Sevens.
The club organises regular events at Mallala during the year as well as many other activities.
Many members of the club are involved with vehicle restoration and participate in regular motoring runs.
