The Canberra Region Morris Minor Club will host the Morris Minor Clubs of Australia 19th National Rally in the region from 21-23 September, coinciding with the 70th anniversary of the production of the first modern Morris Minor in the UK.
The rally will be centred on Queanbeyan, just over the ACT-NSW border, with registrations and a number of activities at the Sutton Road hill climb circuit on Friday.
There’ll be a welcome function on Friday evening that will flow on from the activities at registration. This will be a pay as you go event at the Queanbeyan Roos Club
Saturday will be the display day, in leafy Queanbeyan Town Park, just next to Qbn’s town centre, followed by a celebratory dinner, also pay-as-you go in Queanbeyan.
Sunday will see cars depart the Sutton Road hill climb circuit taking a range of different routes around the national institutions and visiting the best Canberra has to offer.

Club interest in the 16th National Morris Minor Rally at Moss Vale over Easter was strong, with 11 cars entered, plus a number of other members visiting to see the display.
In accordance with attendance at previous rallies, we travelled in two convoys, the sedate travellers, and the less sedate, meeting at Sutton Forest to travel the last few kilometres to Moss Vale.
As always, it was a congenial weekend with plenty of opportunities for socialising.
Congratulations go to the Southern Highlands Morris Minor Car Club for their excellent hospitality and the rich program on offer. Making such a complex undertaking run smoothly takes a lot of hard work by some and the assistance of many others who pull together effectively to achieve a shared goal – very well done guys!
The Canberra contingent comprised a very eclectic band, including standard, chopped and modified cars.
Drivers and passengers from nine club cars braved a strong breeze to take part in Shannon’s Wheels at Thoroughbred Park.
It’s the second time this event has been held at this venue and just confirms that it’s a great place to put cars on show and to gather.
Best of all, a revised layout this year meant plenty of space around the cars and a relaxed atmosphere
