Hi,

I am just completing the restoration of my 79 mgb. I'm contemplating registering for GT43, but not sure. I work during the week so I will not be able to attend and show the car all week, but June 15th is my bday, so I was thinking I would like to attend the road rally to Maymont/lunch and the John Twist tech sessions. Do I need to register to do those or is registration just for "showing" your car? After further review, I think I would like to go to the wine tasting and the KOS band as well smile Please advise what I need to do to attend these events without "showing" my car. I do plan to drive the car to Maymont.
