Report on the event
There were quite a few MGBV8s dotted around the parking areas - Factory MGBGTV8s and RV8s and there were some V8 Roadster conversions and some MGBGTGT conversions. One aspect of the event that I found particularly interesting was the '100 year Timeline'. The organisers had assembled 100 different MGs covering the 100 years since the formation of MG. (No arguments here about when the company was started!) Starting with a MG Super Sports from the 1920s, the exhibition went through successive years and models to reach the present day Chinese MGs.

MGBGTV8 in the MG 100 Timeline
The MGV8 in the Timeline was Bracken 1218 driven over from Germany by current owner Peter Forstner. It's a beautiful example of a chrome bumper model in the bold Bracken colour. It was previously owned by David Waterton, a former V8 Chairman. (Photo: Ralph Hardwick)

Tony Lake reports seeing an MG ZTT V8 (Estate); an early example - the first registered owner was MG/Rover Engineering Department, and it was sold as one of the assets when the Company went bust. It's the same colour as the Bonneville Estate X-15 on show - very quick but not quite as fast! (Photo: John Fry)

MG RV8 Conversion
This beautiful RV8 in a bold red colour was spotted by Lorraine Noble-Thompson. Does anyone know the owner as this MGV8 has not been registered with the V8 Database? (Photo: LNT)
