Silk Road MGBs

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

The MG Car Club wel­comed 14 en­thu­si­asts who com­pleted a 102-day trip from Bangkok to the spir­i­tual home of MG in Abing­don-on-Thames.

The cars cov­ered more than 15,000 miles and trav­elled through 18 coun­tries be­fore ar­riv­ing at the MG Car Club’s Abing­don head­quar­ters.

The group toured through Asia and the Mid­dle East, nav­i­gat­ing the fa­mous Silk Road, be­fore head­ing across Europe. They met var­i­ous in­ter­na­tional branches of the MGCC dur­ing the trip, in­clud­ing in China, Iran and Thai­land.

Event or­gan­iser, John Bas­tian, says: ‘It’s fan­tas­tic to be here af­ter 102 days of trav­el­ling on the most fas­ci­nat­ing roads, meet­ing peo­ple and ex­plor­ing places we never thought we’d go to.

‘Ev­ery time we stopped, peo­ple would come and look at the cars. They may not be odd in Eng­land, but they are mu­seum pieces in Iran and China. So many peo­ple have touched our lives, and we be­lieve we touched other peo­ple’s lives, too.’

seven MGBs took on the trial – cross­ing 18 coun­tries across asia and europe.
