The Great British weather smiled on Silverstone for last weekend’s MGLive! 2011 show, the largest MG-themed event in the UK , which was again ably organised by the MG Car Club. Without a doubt, this year’s was bigger and better than ever. As well as displays of cars on the club stands, there was a full programme of racing (the results of which are available on the TSL website).
However, it’s the social side of the event which makes MGLive! an absolutely essential addition to your annual calendar. The mix of autojumble, racing, car sales, and specialist MG traders is second to none for MG fans… Russ Swift entertained the massive crowds with his driving display several times over the weekend and, together with an aerobatics display and an old Dakoka flypast, they were kept entertained all weekend.
