Details for MG3’s 5th Annual Time Distance Rally on Saturday Aug 29

Joins us for the fifth annual Time Speed Distance (TSD) Rally next Saturday, August 29!  This is a low-key TSD rally designed for the mild, but competitive spirit of our MG owners!  I’m proud to announce that NO divorces (at least none to our knowledge) have resulted from our TSD Rally!  So partake and enjoy this annul gathering of MG faithful to demonstrate your keen sense to convert distance (D) and time (T) to speed (S) and show the Rally Master you got what it takes to match his best efforts to fool you!  (LBC not a prerequisite! You can drive any car you wish! Just drive SOMETHING!) 

We will gather at 9:30 AM on Saturday, August 29 at Culvers in Muskego, WI for the drivers meeting (W187 S7959 Racine Avenue – just south of Janesville Rd and Racine Ave in Muskego).  First car out will be at 10:00 AM and expect a two hour jaunt through the SE Wisconsin country side as you navigate the Rally Master’s pre-planned course!  If you would like to skip the Rally, but join up with MG3 Club members for the celebration, lunch will be at the Sportsman’s Landing, 25313 W. Loomis Road in Wind Lake, WI around 12.30 PM.  Lunch is not provided…everybody will order off the Sportsman’s Landing menu.  Awards will be presented by our beloved Prez, Dave Jefferson and the Rally Master during lunch.   

So get your thinking caps on and join us for our Fifth Annual MG3 Club TSD Rally on August 29th!

April 11, 2015 Tech Session Report

Wow!  What a way to break in the 2015 MG driving season…and this event was not a driving event, although several individuals arrived in their British machines.  On Saturday April 11th members of the MG3 Club and other supporters gathered at Chris Conrad’s garage for this year’s first Tech Session.  After some coffee and donuts, 25 of us proceeded to our seats to take in a very inspiring presentation on MG’s involvement in the search for several land speed records.  Chris first gave us a glimpse into MG’s history dating back into the 1930’s and how time and time again they searched for a world speed record.  It was hard to believe that under a streamlined racecar was the soul and framework of an MG TC!  As Chris wrapped up the brief history lesson, it was now time to discuss his mission of the same goal. To break the land speed record in a MG Midget!  Chris brought us back to the start of his endeavor that began eight years ago.  Chris explained and showed us along with his partners the trial and tribulations they went through to approach this goal.  As he spoke; there in the background of the garage with trophy was the proof of his long journey the 1971 MG Midget.  Chris’s journey and accomplishment has been documented in several magazine write-ups, but nothing was compared to smelling the mechanical atmosphere and company of fellow enthusiasts in his garage at this spring’s Tech Session.  And by the way Chris is planning to break his own record in the near future, maybe a follow-up will be in order!   Safety Fast!   -Jim Maslowski,V.P.

President’s Comments:

I must say that this event was something special. I loved the spirit that was present in the very garage where the record car was put together. Chris Conrad wowed the club members and other guests with his very personal account of the 6 year preparation, including heartaches and lessons learned, ending in success  breaking the decades-old class record. It has been said that “you can set a record anywhere, but when you set a record on the Bonneville salt flats, you have a pedigree!”. Chris was presented with a recognition plaque that reads:
