9-28-19  Cecil Kimber Run.  This annual event is my yearly favorite.  Honoring the birthday of Cecil Kimber, the MG driver’s club arranges a tour de force drive and lunch outing each year.  The routing the two times I’ve done it is outstanding.  This year, it starts in the cracker barrel parking lot in Clinton, N.J. and ends up at the polo field in Tinicum Pa. along the river.  Its 10 bucks to get into the field to watch the match.  No charge otherwise.  Bring your own lunch and chairs, nothing available at the field.  You must register with Richard Miller and sign the release.  Also he needs to know how many route sheets to make up.  908-713-6251
