The Inter-Register Club
All members of the PWA7C are automatically members of the Inter-Register Club. This association of one-make clubs was founded nearly fifty years ago with the sole aim of allowing its members to participate in competitive events that their own clubs would probably be too small to support on their own. Without exception its events are friendly, sociable and only gently competitive, and in any one year there are usually about eight of them spread across the country. Typically these include scatter and regularity rallies, gymkhanas, treasure hunts and the like.
Currently two other Austin clubs (The 750 MC and the Austin Ten Drivers Club) belong – along with the Alvis, Crossley, Fiat, Humber, Riley and Sunbeam Talbot Darracq Registers. Inter-Register events are listed in the PWA7C magazine while regulations and entry forms can be obtained from the club's I-R C representative.
The Inter-Register Club's calendar of events includes a good mix of navigational tests including scatter rallies, regularity rallies, driving tests, treasure hunts and of course the Nightjar night rally. The Austin 7 really is the ideal car for these friendly well run events and as a member of the PWA7C you can enter the Inter-Register events and represent our club. Indeed by doing so you score points for our club that count towards the end of season awards. All the events are listed on the club website, and entry forms and regulations will be uploaded onto the website before each event. If you would like to know any more about taking part in I-RC events then please contact your club representative, Robert Rhodes, by email or on 07747756549.

Enjoy what's left of this year with RH's help
We know this year hasn't gone to plan. We've all had to adapt to a new and radically different way of living and working. That has also had a huge impact on our driving habits. However, even in the height of lockdown there was still the opportunity to get out and drive (albeit just to the shops). If you're anything like us – and we suspect you are – that short drive one a week gave you a much-needed dose of normality. With another national lockdown on the horizon, you may want to get out in your cherished car before the winter months come.
If you've downgraded your cover because you're not using your car, did you know that you can upgrade it again to fully comprehensive without incurring any fees? RH doesn't have any policy admin fees; just call us, and you could soon be back on the road, enjoying some motoring adventures. All you have to pay is the adjusted pro-rata premium and you're good to go. One of our long-term clients did just that and here's what he has to say…
