* Back in the 60’s the old Austin Healey Club Holland (AHCH) and the MG club every year organized a drive between NL and GB. ‘Safety Fast’ was a saying invented by Marcus Chambers (Competition Manager at BMC) and under this label the drives took place The MG club still uses the term ‘Safety Fast’. Because of this joint event together with the MG club the revival of the old term ‘Safety Fast’ seems appropriate. The younger generation must feel comfortable with the revival of old times.
