MG Thoroughbreds Gather in Kentucky
829 British classics from across the United States registered to challenge the heat of the highways and. gather for a four day meet (June 13th to 16th) in historic, Louisville. Ten brave DVC couples mounted their thoroughbreds for the rugged ride (that only an antique English sports car can provide) from Pennsylvania to Kentucky.
Blue Grass country did not disappoint. Hank Rippert greeted our thirsty posse with some well deserved, satisfying and rejuvenating beverages in “Rippert style”. Cocktails and tours of Churchill Downs were held on Monday and Wednesday evening and a Bourbon Trail Tour proved popular on Tuesday – perhaps you can spot a trend…
A tour of the Corvette factory on Wednesday reminded the group that not everyone in the world motored in British style and, of course, tech sessions were held daily to remind all of the miracle and madness of MG.
Good food was abundant, especially in the evenings at “register night” banquets followed by music and dance with Captain Rat & the Blind Rivets.
DVC members in attendance were Pat & Patty Cawthorne, Warren & Nancy Doerner, Ernie & Barbara Feldgus, Wolfgang & Gudie Fischer, Garth & Susan Gill, Adam & Eva Ilnicki, Rich & Brenda Moore, Ben & Cindi Nolan, Paul & Evonna Phillips, Tom & Jaimee Rippert & Dick & Sandy Suffredini.
