The popular MG Live! show made a welcome return to China in 2011, supported once again by the MG Car Club China and SAIC MG. The event featured static displays on-track action, and boasted a huge selection of new-world Chinese built MGs, which are steadily picking up a strong following in their adopted homeland.
For those who made it to MGLive! earlier this year at Silverstone, this event will have had a familiar feel – although the near-tropical weather conditions were somewhat different to what showgoers enjoyed in Northamptonshire. The star of the show was the recently-launched MG3, which attracted a huge number of potential customers, many who were treated to hot passenger laps on track (above).
No dates have been announced yet for the 2012 event in China.
