2014 Round-up

After 2013 when the Imp celebrated its 50th birthday there was always concern that 2014 might feel a bit flat. There was no need to worry. The Imp and those who enjoy our favourite car have enjoyed another full year.

The Imp Club and its members staged the following major weekend events

  • Imp Ecosse
  • Going Dutch
  • Imp 2014 at Huntingdon
  • Wicked Welsh Weekend

End of Year : Towards the end of the year many Imps are laid up for the winter months …. but …. before this happens we mustn’t forget The Classic Motor Show at the NEC. Always a superb Imp Club stand and probably the last chance of the year to get together with like minded enthusiasts and talk IMP! This and end of season runs are not to be missed!

  • Classic Motor Show – NEC (sponsored by Lancaster Insurance)

This year The Imp Club was presented with the award for “Most Interesting Selection of Cars” – Congratulations to the organisers and all those Imp Club Members who provided such a wide range of interesting vehicles to help secure this trophy
