Third year MGLive! will not be held - so let's look forward to 2022
T
The news that MGLive! planned for June 2021 has been postponed until 2022 is not unexpected but is still disappointing for so many V8 enthusiasts who enjoy the Club's major annual two day event. It has always been a good opportunity for V8 enthusiasts to meet up, not least in the large V8 Marquee we have had there for many years.

Let's look forward to MGLive! 2022.

V8 Kent Tour 2021
With continuing Covid guidelines on unnecessary travel and social distancing in the second half of 2020, the V8 Kent Tour planned by Ian Quarrington for September 2020 was postponed to 2021. As an update Ian says the arrangements for the V8 Kent Tour are in place for September 2021 and we hope, with the successful roll out of the vaccine programme in the UK, social movement and holidays in England will be possible again by August or September. He is very hopeful the tour will go ahead but clearly the Covid pandemic situation is the key deciding factor. But Ian remains positive.

Memories of the V8 Lincolnshire Tour in 2019
With the news of the postponement of MGLive! 2021 in June, Richard Worthington sent in some photos of a "memorable" V8 Tour that many V8 enthusiasts enjoyed. Richard's arrangements for the tour demonstrated clearly that " Lincolnshire is neither flat nor boring!" Alongside is the line up of the tour group outside the base hotel.

Look back at the report on the event. Report
