MGLive! 2016 brings ‘Heritage’ to the fore

20th January 2016

Silverstone Classic 2015

The MG Car Club is thrilled to announce the theme for this year’s MGLive! as the event returns once again to Silverstone, the home of British Motorsport and the historic Grand Prix circuit on 4 – 5 June.

MG has a different meaning to all that have been involved with the marque in one way or another, and with that in mind, the theme of this year’s MGLive! is ‘Heritage’.

For some, the connection will be immediately obvious. For others it will provide a fascinating insight into MG’s rich and diverse history.

MG Car Club General Manager, Adam Sloman, said: “2016 sees FIVA (Fédération Internationale des Véhicules Anciens) and the FBHVC (Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs) celebrate ‘World Motoring Heritage Year’, and as one of Britain’s largest classic car clubs, the MG Car Club is naturally keen to be involved with and support this initiative.

“MG has so much heritage, we believe it is a great fit for our premier event.”

Traditional elements of MGLive! will also return in 2016. The event will feature two days of racing on the historic Grand Prix circuit, the biggest and best traders in the MG world, an autojumble, and on the Sunday, Pride of Ownership, and Concours D’elegance.

Russ Swift, the legendary precision and stunt driver, will once again be showcasing his skills -demonstrating two-wheeled driving, extreme parallel parking and much more.

Saturday night boasts a packed programme of live entertainment, which includes live music, a disco and fully-licenced bar. And there’s no need to worry about driving, since MGLive! also offers pitches for camping and caravans.

With just five months to go until the event, there will be lots of exciting news to come as MGLive! 2016 draws nearer.

Ticket sales and the new event website will be launched at the end of January. For more information, please call the MG Car Club on 01235 555552.
