RV8 20th Anniversary Tour of the BMH Body Plant at Witney
Thursday 27th September 2012 at 10.30am
Range Road, Witney, OX29 0YB - the tour is fully booked with a a standby list
John Yea has indicated he would be delighted to provide a guided tour of the plant for a small group of V8 enthusiasts when we hope to be able to see bodyshells being worked on at the time of our tour. The production of an MGB wing is a particularly interesting manufacturing activity for visitors to watch as the sheer number of component parts that have to be assembled and the extent of the physical work and craftsmanship usually result in many visitors realising they had little idea of what was involved and hence can appreciate the value of a wing in the light of the relatively modest cost!
We may arrange is a meeting place in the Witney area for breakfast as that would enable members to travel early and miss the peak workday traffic jams on their route to Witney. More
