BROOK­LANDS MG ERA DAY

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Event Report -

WEY­BRIDGE, SUR­REY, 10 APRIL

Two of MG’s live­lier two-seaters – the TA and the Mid­get – were the star cars at this one-day gath­er­ing at Brook­lands Mu­seum.

The MGF Reg­is­ter, the Mid-Es­sex MG Own­ers’ Club and the Zed Reg­is­ter were among the or­gan­i­sa­tions that took part in this year’s event, with more than 250 oc­tagon-badged clas­sics tak­ing part in dis­plays around the mu­seum grounds and on the re­mains of the banked cir­cuit. The flag­ship dis­play in Brook­lands’ pad­dock was given over to the T-Se­ries Reg­is­ter, which put to­gether an eight-car dis­play to high­light the TA’s 80th an­niver­sary.

The MG Mid­get’s 55th an­niver­sary was also high­lighted by the event or­gan­iser, with own­ers of the diminu­tive road­ster en­cour­aged to park in a sin­gle­model dis­play on the ap­proach to the bank­ing.

Show en­trants not con­tent with show­ing their cars off in the static dis­plays also got the chance to take part in two cav­al­cades around the neigh­bour­ing MercedesBenz World cir­cuit, and take on the pun­ish­ing gra­di­ents of the orig­i­nal cir­cuit’s Test Hill. David Simis­ter
