Winchester MGOC Cobweb Run

20 March All day

The Cobweb Spin is all about getting your classic car out of winter hibernation, dusting it off and blowing away the cobwebs by driving it to a meeting venue. (The Cobweb is open to all classics and is not just for MGs)

Booking is essential as Winchester MGOC are unable to accept entries on the day. To book go to the Winchester MGOC website and request a booking form, via their ‘Contact us’  button the the front page of their website,  (See the link below).

For 2022 we are returning to the Royal Armouries Fort Nelson on Sunday 20th March. We last displayed here back in 2019 but with the pandemic starting in 2020 we have faced 2 years of cancelations. Charities have also suffered, so we feel its right to once again support such organisations that have supported us in the past.

If you have not been before, this restored Victorian Fort is perched high on Portsdown Hill and has far reaching views over Portsmouth harbour and the Solent to the Isle of Wight and across to the New Forest. There are 19 acres of ramparts and fortifications to explore as well as a network of underground tunnels and exhibition galleries that feature some of the largest guns ever made including a section of the notorious Iraqi Supergun.

The Fort has a café, serving drinks and light meals and has all the usual facilities including a shop. For Cobweb Spin participants, Café 1871 will be again be offering early Bacon Baps.

Cobweb Spin participants will be allowed exclusive vehicle access to park on the parade ground within the Fort itself. A limit of 150 cars has been set in the display areas so pre-booking is required for this event. Participants are requested to be in position before 10am where possible, but no later than 10.30am when the Fort is opened to the public. At 10-30am the main gate to the parade ground will be closed and will remain closed until 2-30pm. Only after this time will participants be able to depart.

Please note that the site does not allow dogs unless are required for assistance.

The entry form contains all the essential information including method of payment, closing date and details for ordering an early morning bacon bap with tea, coffee or a cold drink. Cost is £10 per car and £5 per person for a bap and hot drink. Please use our contact form to request an entry form. Don’t forget to check your spam folder for our reply if you have not contacted us before.

We look forward to your entry and seeing you on Sunday 20th March 2022
