Archives

With the club having been formed in 1962, we have built up a collection of archive material. This is currently held by the Austin Seven Clubs' Association (A7CA), the umbrella group covering all Austin Seven Clubs both here and across the world. The Association is in the process of collating and digitising all of its archive material and this can be viewed on their Online Archive.
We are always interested in new material from individuals and members. Please contact the Club Chairman, Chris Garner.

Various documents from the archives will be made available as downloads; we will be adding to the list over time. For now, have a look at these three Club rally programmes:

  • 1964 Staunton Harold programme. "A Gymkhana and Display of Vintage and Veteran Cars" being the Club's first major event. This continued to be held at Staunton Harold (close to Donington Park race circuit) before moving to Wollaton Park, Nottingham, in 1972.

  • 2011 Autokarna Rally programme. Since 1972 the Club's annual rally has gone from strength to strength. Reknown nationally and internationally it hosts a wide variety of vintage and classic vehicles including Austin Sevens as well as a very extensive Autojumble. To celebrate our 50th, 2012's rally will extend to four days.
