A T Type for a wedding in central London
The T Register has been asked if a member can provide a T Type to transport a bride to the church on her wedding day on Friday 9th September.
The bride’s father used to own a 1936 TA in Singapore to which she grew up with and why the classic MG would be the perfect and sentimental vehicle that delivers her to the church on the big day.
The car would be needed in central London. Pick up would be in Mayfair at 69 Brook Street and drop off at the St Augustine of Canterbury Church, 44 Onslow Square in South Kensington – in total about 25 minute drive.
Timing would be roughly be around 11:30am to arrive at the church for 12 noon.
If you can help, please contact the bridegroom Daniel on
Triumph and MG Weekend cancelled for 2022
The Triumph and MG Weekend which was held with much success in 2021 has been cancelled for 2022. The notice for the cancellation appeared on 26 July and reads as follows –
It is with deep regret that we must announce that the 2022 Triumph and MG Weekend, due to be held over the weekend of 19-21 August, has been cancelled.
The organising clubs, MG Car Club, TR Register and TSSC made the difficult decision to cancel the event due to experiencing a lack of ticket sales against a backdrop of sharply rising costs for holding the event. Ticket sales were 70% down on where they were this time last year.
A spokesperson for the organising committee said, ‘We are devastated to share this news. Last year, the MG Car Club, TR Register and TSSC all enjoyed award-winning success when the classic car community recognised the collaboration between the clubs as a true innovation within the community and all three clubs received accolades from the industry. However, the cost of living, in particular fuel prices, and the backlog of holidays and other events after the pandemic have all influenced attendance levels this year. The organisers from each of the three clubs have therefore had to ensure that they are carrying out their duty to safeguard the financial stability of their respective car club.’
All ticket holders will be refunded in full, including camping and additional extras such as Autojumble pitches and electric hook-up.
Please do not contact the MG Car Club at this early stage regarding refunds as they will be automatically processed for MG Car Club members and will be appearing in bank accounts over the next 5 – 7 working days. There is nothing you need to do to obtain your full refund at this stage. We expect all refunds to have been processed and received by ticket holders by 8th August 2022.
You can read the announcement on the main club’s website.
Link to Vintage Stony 2022 photos
Our apologies but the gremlins crept in to the January 2022 newsletter sent out to members. Clicking the photos of the Vintage Stony New Year’s Day event led to the NEC Classic Car Show website instead of showing a larger version of them 😱🙁.
This is where to view all the larger versions of the photos of the Vintage Stony event.
Happy New Year 2022
Happy Christmas 2021!
Wishing everyone a very Happy Christmas for 2021
The new online Factory Records system goes live
The new Factory Records system has now gone live and has replaced the older system which was kept on the old tregister.org website.
The address for searching the new system is
We have also uploaded a revised set of data of the records. The original set of data dates back over 20 years or so when the original paper records were first digitised. Transcribing over 50,000 records meant that inevitably some errors occurred. All the TD records – the bulk of the records – have been gone thought again and errors where found have been corrected.
The policy followed has been to replicate the paper records, not to correct them where mistakes were made in recording in the factory. However this latter has been taken care of by introducing more copious notes in the digital records to mark where inconsistencies may occur. You can see this at work from the screenshot above where the owner has queried the original engine number.
The original intention was to have completed the scrutiny of the paper records for TA, TB, TC and TF cars as well, but unfortunately the pandemic has put a stop to visits to Kimber House where the paper records are held. And there are still some queries about the TD records which need checking again; nevertheless we thought it worth uploading the corrected records rather than sticking with the old.
The next step is to transfer the records kept by the T Register Registrars which are more complicated to the new system, but the Factory Records system has proved to be a useful learning curve for the process.
Our intention is then to transfer the tregister.org domain name to point to the T Register’s pages on the MGCC site.
More updates to the factory records will have to wait until it’s safe to visit Kimber House …
2020 Events and other services cancelled – updated 6 April 2020
We have now cancelled all Regalia sales from the T Register shop. Dispatching items involved a trip to the Post Office and we cannot justify the exposure of one of our members.
The 2020 Events Page has been updated with the latest information we have on cancellations.
We have cancelled the Spring Tour to the Ardennes and all participants have been contacted about their hotel deposits.
Rebuild has also been cancelled for this year and there will be a full refund for people who have already paid for the event – our Treasurer will be in touch with you all via email to arrange refunds.
The Brooklands MG event on 19 April has also been cancelled.
We have abandoned planning for the T Party due to the uncertainty that surrounds us. MG Live is still going ahead at the moment but of course the club will conform to all government advice.
Motorsport UK (the body delegated by the government to govern car sporting events which includes road runs) has now withdrawn ALL licences until 30 June so that any activity organised by a CRB that is subject to a MSUK permit or certificate of exemption cannot proceed, and any event planned up to 30 June 2020 will not be covered by MSUK permit or certificates of exemption and has to be cancelled. This includes not only race meetings, but also rallies, trials, sprints, hillclimbs and road runs.
This also includes MG Live, because without the MSUK permit of course no racing can be planned.
There is a full report on what is happening with MG Live on the main club website.
The Autumn Tour is actually solidly booked up and we are keeping a reserve list, but of course we are keeping it very much under review and we have until July to decide whether to cancel or go ahead with the event.
Just to inject a note of optimism, we are actively considering the planning for the 2021 Autumn Tour.
Kimber House have put up a comprehensive listing of advice and of events that have been cancelled and it’s worth a read –
T Register Autumn Tour 2019
Members had a great time on this year’s Autumn Tour, not least because of the great weather we had – no hood and sidescreens were the order of the day.
The countryside was great too in this more unknown part of the UK with traffic free roads and attractive villages, together with plenty of refreshments opportunities and stops, and venues to visit.
