Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Events Previews -


Sil­ver­stone this week­end will be the place to be if you’re look­ing to buy sell, or sim­ply look at MGs. MGLive! will fea­ture a packed cars for sale area – get in early if you want a bar­gain.

The Bri­tish Grand Prix cir­cuit is also be­ing used for his­toric rac­ing through­out the week­end, while TV per­son­al­i­ties Mike Brewer and Ant An­stead will be en­ter­tain­ing the crowds at the event’s live arena. Other big draws in­clude model-by-model dis­plays by branches of the MG Car Club, and Russ Swift’s thrilling stunt driv­ing dis­plays.

MGLive! also has a very spe­cial guest in the shape of an MGB pro­to­type. The MGB Safety Car – co­de­named SSV1 – has been loaned by the Bri­tish Mo­tor Mu­seum and will be pre­sented by Abing­don­based char­ity Head­way Ox­ford­shire at the two-day event to help with fundrais­ing. The ex­per­i­men­tal car, de­vel­oped to rep­re­sent Bri­tish Ley­land at a

US road safety con­fer­ence in 1972, will be joined by more than 1000 clas­sics brought along by MG own­ers from across the UK and all over Europe.

Adam Slo­man, gen­eral man­ager of MGLive! or­gan­iser the MG Car Club, says: ‘Hav­ing MGB SSV1 adds not only a bril­liant link be­tween the mar­que and the char­ity but also gives a great op­por­tu­nity for us to show off a very in­ter­est­ing car to thou­sands of MG fans.’

MGLive! opens at 9am on both days, and tickets cost £8.
