Austin 7 classics on show

BRITISH RACING CLASSICS: Spectators at the 2013 Austin 7 Rally will be treated to a host of classic British racing cars in Hampshire, England.

HAMPSHIRE, England - The Austin 7 was the first truly mass-produced British car and it changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of ordinary people by giving them the opportunity to buy an affordable car for the first time.

In honour of the iconic British ride, the 750 Motor Club will host the 51st National Rally of pre-Second World War Austin 7 cars in England on July 7th 2013.

Between 1922 and 1939, about 290 000 were built and 8000 are thought to still be around. Enthusiasm for owning an Austin 7 is as strong as ever and the rally attracts entries from all over the United Kingdom and Europe.


Whilst Austins form the core of the event, all pre-1973 vehicles of any other make are welcomed.

Several 750 Motor Club "centres" will put on an entertaining display of their vehicles and activities and there will be a distinctly Gallic flavour on the stand of the Tacot Club from Calais.
