Breakfast Run – June 2020

28 June 2020 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am

Breakfast Run to McLaren Vale

28th June 2020

By Steve Spong & John Roach, and photos by David McNabb

Well what can we say, after 3 long months of social isolation, self-quarantining and hand washing we finally were able to re-convene an MG Car Club Breakfast Run!

All those days polishing and tinkering with the cars, all with nowhere to drive them finally came to an end and we once again hit the road.

By way of a double bonus; we also had a perfect winter’s day with clear, but cool skies. So someone was on our side. Waking up to such a great day saw 59 people and 33 cars out for a drive on our great country roads and through to McLaren Vale. In fact the day was one for bringing out several “weekend” cars for a run, including a passing Ferrari 335 Spyder and a 1967 E-type that stopped by for a chat and a look at our cars.

It was fantastic that so many regulars made the run, but also a warm welcome was extended to club members and first-time breakfast runners; namely Andy Morgan, of Richmond Motors, in his MG Midget (sadly one of only a few Midgets in the Club), and to our regalia aficionado Barrie Spencer in his MGB.

So, we all did our best to social distance on the day, and congratulated ourselves on living in the best state whilst trusting that we have seen the last of the lock-down measures in South Australia.
