Silverstone to host huge MG celebration

Published 23 January 2014

Silverstone will host a huge MG celebration this summer to celebrate the marque’s 90th year. MG90 has been organised by the MG Car Club, and the event will see historic racing on the circuit, as well as a static display of 90 famous MGs.

The event takes place on 21-22 June and the MG Car Club has already confirmed that it will exhibit cars from each decade og MG, along with a selection of famous and well known race cars such as ‘RMO 699F’ the 1969 MGC GTS driven by Paddy Hopkirk at the Sebring 12 hour endurance race, ‘DRX 256C’ MG’s 1964 Le Mans race car and Dick Jacob’s two Twin-Cam MGAs

Tickets go on sale in February with an advanced day ticket for MG Car Club members starting from just £16.50, a saving of almost £10 compared to the gate price on the day. Advanced tickets for non-members start from just £21, while entry will be free for children aged 16 and under.

MG Car Club General Manager Julian White said: 'There is already a real buzz about MG90 and we cannot wait to see our plans come to fruition. This year more than ever we want to involve our club members and celebrate the hard work they put in.

'As well as a full weekend of racing on the Grand Prix circuit, we want to create one of the largest displays of MGs ever seen. With over 90 years and 10 decades of cars to choose from I am confident we can create a fun day out for MG enthusiasts old and new.'
