MGLive! 2015 – celebrating 60 years of Competitions
The largest MG gathering in the world returns to Silverstone on the 20th and 21st of June, celebrating the 60th anniversary of the legendary BMC Competitions Department - and the Austin Healey Club will be there as a guest with them!
The Competitions, or ‘Comps’ department was born in 1955 and based alongside the MG factory works in Abingdon. The Comps’ departments brief was to prepare every BMC car for use in motorsport, though it wasn’t until the arrival of the Austin Healey that the team had a car that was up to the rigours of rallying and racing. The Healey was quickly succeeded by the world-beating Mini Cooper, a car that would dominate most forms of motorsport, particularly rallying, winning three Monte Carlo rallies.
Being based at the home of British motorsport, MGLive! will feature a full programme of racing action. This year the Austin Healey Club is proud to be running a very special race on the Sunday on the Grand Prix Circuit.
Those wishing to take part in the race can download the race entry form here.
Away from the racing action, MG Live! will play host to autojumble, trade stands, club displays and much more.
