MG-40 event
This promises to be a great weekend celebrating 40 years of the post Abingdon built MGs, with plenty on offer for the modern MG owner.
The organisers say "that due to the restrictions on car parking - only 250 vehicles per day - please select either Saturday or Sunday, regretfully we will not be able to swap days".

The RV8 30th Anniversary will be celebrated on Sunday 17th July 2022 - book your tickets online now
The Club's Registers covering the MG models launched in the 40 post-Abingdon years are supporting this two day MG 40 Celebration event which will be located on a site adjacent to Toddington station which is on a steam railway line running to the north east of Cheltenham. Three MGV8s were launched after Abingdon closed, not least the RV8 which will see the 30th anniversary of its launch in 1992 with the main production underway in 1993. The limited production MG ZT260 saloon and then the MG SV sportscar came a little later. More news on this event later.
