Rolling V8 Calendar


Track days with MGs on Track (MGoT). It's a specialist branch of the MG Car Club wich aims to organise fun, sociable track days where MG enthusiasts can enjoy their cars in safety, with fellow enthusiasts and at the best possible price. Our events are non-competitive, there is no need to modify your car and there is no expensive equipment required. All you will need is a helmet and that can be hired from MGoT. Their events are run for enthusiasts, by enthusiasts, and entirely on a voluntary basis. More & Programme for 2022

Returning to the Silverstone Arena GP circuit again this year, operating from from the Heritage pits, not the new Wing complex. It is 1/2 mile longer than the previous "old" GP circuit and the Arena section is a real technical challenge. Event is a single 20 min session per hour. Expect each car to have 2 hours of track time throughout the day, assuming no stoppages. Unfortunately not open to first timers.

Snetterton is a fast, torquey circuit with a demanding infield section
A three session per hour day with just one dedicated MGOT session on the Snetterton 300 Circuit. A multi-million pound redevelopment has extended the circuit by one mile by the addition of an in-field section inspired by iconic corners such as Monza's Parabolica and the Montreal Hairpin. The excellent Riches, Esses, Bomb Hole, Coram and Russel bends remain.
