Oulton Park - MG Session
26th May 2015
Silverstone - Half Day Deal - 3/3/15
Silverstone - Half Day Deal
Due to the very unusual position of having unsold spaces at Silverstone on 10th March, We have now opened up a 'Morning only' event at only £99 and £89 for MGCC members.
(Should you wish to book morning only and then decide to go on track in the afternoon this can be done at pro-rata cost)
Silverstone is our flagship event! Sadly, unless we can cover our costs, it may be the last opportunity we get at Silverstone as MGs on Track...As a not-for-profit MG Track day club, we will find it difficult to sustain such losses and sincerely hope you can support the very best MG track day club, anywhere, MGs on Track!
* We have also opened up the event to compatible marques, should you wish to take your non MG on track please contact Davep@mgs-on-track.co.uk prior to booking.
Silverstone - A Must Do Circuit! - 5/2/15
The excitement of being able to drive at Silverstone starts to build weeks before the event, the social gathering is as much part of the day as driving is whereby the renowned MG camaraderie forms with friends old and new. Nearly all models of MG make an appearance, proving yet again, our Track Days are not just for B’s and F’s. Silverstone is unique in our calendar in that, to be able to drive on the Grand Prix circuit, you must have experience at a minimum of one track day at another venue. Silverstone is a ‘must do’ event! Be sure to book a track day with MGoT this year to qualify for Silverstone in 2015. There are still a few places at Goodwood for first timers who may want to drive Silverstone this year.

The sound of ‘The Chain’…
Just as you turn off the A43 there is a short stretch of road leading up to the entrance, turn left and observe the sign ‘WELCOME TO SILVERSTONE’- The home of the British Grand Prix. Through the security barrier and over the bridge, it’s then I start to imagine the distinctive voice of Murray Walker saying …“And – There - Goes - Nigel - Mansell…” at the same time the sound of Fleetwood Mac reverberates in my head, Yes, It’s ‘The Chain’ the theme synonymous with Formula 1… I feel honoured to be able to drive on one of the best motor racing circuits in the world, here is my ‘whistle stop’ account of the day!

No sooner are Christmas & the New Year over than another season is upon us. You might be thinking now about your plans for the 2015 season. So, to whet your appetite, we deceided to remind you of our last visit to Goodwood circuit in October 2014. We had a glorious day both in terms of the track day as well as the unseasonally balmy autumn weather. Just take a look at these pics to remind yourself!
Goodwood is a fantastic circuit for both a first-time track day and for experienced track drivers alike. So come along at the end of February, we have often had great weather for this event and we guarantee that you will have a great day irrespective of the cimactic conditions. Book via our dedicated event page HERE.
If you can't wait for the end of February, we also have a day courtesy of our good friends at Lotus on Track. this is at Bedford Autodrome on the 2.3 mile SEN circuit. For all of you who ask about open pit lane events, then this one is for you as it is OPL and therefore suitable for those of you with experience of a few track days. Booking is via a dedicated link to the LoT website from our event page HERE. At the time of writing, there are just 16 places left.
Finally we leave you with a shot of Mike Staffords Turbo TF which was at Goodwood last October, showing off its very considerable pace. Not only did Mike come along for his first ever track day, but he also provided free track-day support to a number of our members who encountered mechanical gremlins during the day. Many thanks Mike for all of your help, we hope to see you again soon. Mike runs MJS Auto & Marine who are MG Rover specialists and may be found via his website www.mjsautoandmarine.co.uk.
