The National MicroCar Rally (or "NMCR") is held once a year, normally on the first weekend in September.

It’s when microcar enthusiasts meet to chat, swap spares, show off their cars, and drive them to visit the surrounding area. For anyone interested in microcars, it’s a great opportunity to see a bit of motoring history, in action.

Meadow's full of them

One of the highlights of the 2015 rally was the fantastic, record-breaking line-up of fifteen Meadows Friskys.

Meadows Frisky Coupe.

Perhaps the most elegant of all British microcars, the hard-top Frisky Coupe. See all the cars from the 2015 rally in the 2015 NMCR - Photo Gallery

The Heinkel Cabin Cruiser

Heinkel advert

Inspired by the revolutionary Iso Isetta, Ernst Heinkel's interpretation of the bubble car began production in December 1955. Initially a three-wheeler with a 174cc engine, later versions had twin rear wheels mounted close together for improved stability and a 198cc engine. Plans to develop a four seater version never reached fruition, and in 1958, Heinkel returned to aircraft production, but not before a large number of unassembled cars had been shipped to Argentina and Ireland.

Shortly afterwards, manufacturing began of licence-built Heinkels at Dundalk in Ireland. Production there ended sometime towards the end of 1961, and in August of the same year, the rights were taken up by the Lambretta-Trojan Organisation. Trojan were prohibited from using the Heinkel badge on their cars, so the car was re-christened the Trojan 200. Production ceased sometime in 1964
