The 1100 Club holds a National Rally every summer. The event takes place over a weekend and the venue varies from year to year. Across the weekend there is usually a range of ADO16 parts on sale from several autojumble stallholders, and of course the club's excellent range of regalia is available too.
The AGM takes place so that members are fully involved in key decisions relating to the club's activities, and on the Saturday evening there is a social gathering, usually involving a meal, lots of great conversation and some live music. On the Sunday there is concours judging, technical talks and demonstrations and the much anticipated awards ceremony.
National Rally 2019
The 1100 Club National Rally this year is to be held at the British Motor Museum, Gaydon, on Saturday 27th and Sunday 28th July. This year we celebrate fifty years of the Austin and Morris 1300GT and hope to see as many GTs as possible. In addition, we mark the 50th anniversary of the final Riley 1300 version built so if you have a Riley Kestrel or 1300, please bring it along!
National Rally 2018
The 1100 Club National Rally was held at the Epping Ongar Railway and, despite variable weather, more than 30 1100s visited during the weekend.

The Saturday evening meal aboard the Epping Fryer heritage train was enjoyed by around 100 members and their guests.

National Rally 2012 - The 50th Anniversary Rally
This rally celebrated the 50th anniversary of the launch of the ADO16 range in Morris and MG versions.
The rally diehards began arriving at Gaydon on Friday lunchtime in their ADO16s. The 1100 regalia and spares tents were set up as planned. Koren organised an informal get-together on the Friday evening, which was well attended. The club banner was positioned for the mad rush on the Saturday and Sunday by the dedicated team of volunteers.
The LEJOG Tour cars all safely arrived at Gaydon in the afternoon after a marathon that deserves a gold medal for everyone who took part.
