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, entirely on a voluntary basis. More
In 2018 we had the 45th anniversary of the launch of the MGBGTV8 model in August 1973 and the 40th anniversary of the formation of the V8 Register five years later in 1978. We also had the 25th anniverary of the launch of the RV8. See a series of articles on many of the memorable moments, news items and photos enjoyed by fellow V8 enthusiasts. MGBGTV8 & RV8

National Trust Day Visit to The Workhouse at Southwell - postponed
The Workshouse in Southwell in Nottinghamshire was built in 1824 and is the best preserved example of the hundreds of workhouses built across the country. The system implemented here was developed by the Reverend John T. Becher and George Nicholls whose ideas shaped the way in which the poor were treated during the 19th century.
