not try a track day?
Taking your MGV8 on a track day is not for racing but an opportunity
to drive your car smoothly at speed in a safe environment. It's also
a sociable event when you can meet up with fellow MG enthusiasts.
The track days arranged by MGs on Track (a branch of the MG Car Club)
are particularly well run by an experienced team of volunteers who
aim for and archive high standards of driving and safety at their
events, not to mention professional standards of organisation and
management of their track days.

Developing your driving skills at track days is a very good preparation
for enthusiasts who might think of entering events at the Club's motor
Visit the MGOT website and see their programme of track days.
A useful guide from
the team at MGOT addressing the key questions: what is a track
day, what about my car and what about me?
Your first session out on the track will be behind a safety
car for a minimum of three laps to familiarise you with the
circuit layout and then you can have invaluable instruction
from one of MGOT's Grade A Instructors helping you with driving
technique and the best line round the circuit.
