MGLive! Overview

MGLive! will be packed full of exciting features to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the MG Car Club, the original club for MG enthusiasts.

The MG Car Club has run events at Silverstone since 1951, so the Northamptonshire based circuit has been a key part of our club’s history for nearly seventy years. Therefore, it is only fitting that we should return to commemorate the incredible milestone of the 90th year since the club’s formation.

As well as the club celebrations, there will also be features to mark the 25th birthday of our beloved MGF. There will also be the return of the MG Car Club Autotest as members compete for the coveted California Cup, as well as a packed weekend of racing action ontrack, live music, trade show, entertainment arena and interviews with key figures from the club’s history.

The MG Car Club also welcomes MG Motor UK, who join us to support the event with displays of the latest MG models, including the latest electric cars wearing the octagon badge.

It’s going to be a truly memorable weekend of MG fun, so don’t miss out on the chance to celebrate this major milestone in the club’s history.

And remember, children aged 15 and under go free!

Race Details

Five of the MG Car Club’s race championships will be racing with us at MGLive! 2020:

MG Trophy Championship – THE MG TROPHY is one of the UK’s best and most enjoyable single make club championships, offering high quality close racing for the front wheel drive MG ZR in 3 classes, and the MG3. In recent years the MG Trophy has produced a number of drivers who have gone on to higher levels of motorsport with ex Trophy driver Jack Goff competing in the BTCC having won the Clio Cup in 2012.

The MGCC Peter Best Insurance MG Cup – Established for over 20 years, the MGCC Peter Best Insurance MG Cup is the UK’s most popular MG racing series and is the only championship for which any MG model is eligible. The MGCC Peter Best Insurance MG Cup caters for any MG, ranging from post war T-Types through to sixties classic Midgets, MGBs and MGCs to more recent MGFs and Z series and current production models such as the MG6 GT.   In 2017 the championship allowed the Rover Tomcat Turbo cars to enter.

BCV8 Championship – The MG Car Club’s long established BCV8 Championship is the premier series for MGB and MGC racing, offering classes for the fully modified V8s to road going cars. The MGBV8 has played a major part in the spectator value of the BCV8 series and the powerful full-house machines have raised the performance game. However, the V8 has not eclipsed the 1800 and modified MGB racing is as close and exciting as ever. Today the MGCC’s BCV8 Championship has some of the closest racing you could wish to see and is as popular as ever

Cockshoot Cup – The Cockshoot Cup Championship is a racing championship run by the North West Centre of the MG Car Club. It provides an opportunity for owners of MG sports and saloon cars to race their cars within easy travelling distance of the North West of England. However, the Championship always makes the trip down to Silverstone for MGLive! and the opportunity to race on the GP Circuit. The cars are split into four classes and cover everything from Midgets, MGBs to ZRs, MGFs and MGTFs.

Lackford Engineering Midget & Sprite Challenge – The Midget & Sprite Challenge is the only exclusively ‘Spridget’ race series in the UK. With the backing of the well known Classic Car restoration company, Lackford Engineering, it is THE home for racing MG Midgets and Austin Healey Sprites (built 1956-1979.

Alongside the MG Championhips, we’ll have a number of guest championships racing with us over the weekend. We’ll be announcing these special guests soon!
