This week our video comes by way of Scotland and features the immortal Austin Healey. This event may have taken place four years ago, but I think you will agree that the cars look as good today as they did then, or even 50 years ago.
Coming to us from the Austin Healey Club in the UK, the footage is actually from 2013 when Crieff Hydro in Scotland hosted over 250 Austin Healey cars and their owners at the 4th European Healey Meeting.
The above video was taken at the Knockhill Circuit in Dumfermline, Fife, which played host to the event’s Auto Test. Fastest time of the day went to Oliver Chatham’s 3000 Mk1, which completed the 1.3-mile course in 37.7 secs.
The Austin Healey Club is a group of 1,600 enthusiasts dedicated to preserving the Austin Healey Marque and enjoying all aspects of the associated cars – the ‘Warwick’ Healeys, the Austin Healeys, and the Jensen Healeys.
Although a National Club formally instantiated through a Limited Company – the Austin Healey Club Ltd – the strength of the Club is its local Centers. Meetings and events are largely run at the local level, which drives the club to be more adaptive to what members want!
The 5th European Healey Weekend will take place in June 2018 in the Alsace region of France and the Black Forest region of Germany. The website for this enticing event is open at www.euromeet2018.com
