MG Owners' Club Snowdrop Run in Cambridgeshire draws car enthusiasts




The 14th annual MG Owners Snowdrop Run took place recently and among the 100-plus cars featured was one that originally belonged to racing driver Archie Scott Brown.

Drivers met at Melbourn Village College last Saturday morning (February 16) and this year’s drive ended at Chippenham Park, near Mildenhall, a 60-mile run.

“Although we start from Melbourn Village College, we have a different end destination each year,” said Chris Shurlock, secretary of the Cambridge & District MG Owners Club.

“We had 115 cars booked in, although a few didn’t turn up – but we were well over 100 on the day. Mostly MGs, but some other marques as well.”

First-time participant Chris Caruana did the run in a car that used to belong to a famous racing driver.

“It’s the car that Archie Scott Brown originally started his racing career in here in Cambridge,” said Chris, “and I picked it up, of all places, in a little Lada garage in Bury St Edmunds back in 1984.”
