On Sunday the 11th of October, 2020, we will celebrate the founding of the MG Car Club in the UK in 1930 and our own MG Car Club in 1950 with a run combining Sydney’s picturesque sites as well as historical sites of MG production in Australia.
The run will see us visit the site of Pressed Metal Corperation (PMC) at Enfield, where MGAs and Mk1 MGBs were made. We’ll finish at Nuffield Park, which is the location of the old Leyland factory at Victoria Park/Zetland where MGB MkIIs were made. Nuffield Park is dedicated to Lord Nuffield (William Morris), who founded Morris cars and established the factory at Zetland.
Starting with a hearty breakfast at the Strathfield Golf Club, our very own John Lindsay will set the scene with a brief talk on working at the Zetland factory before we embark on a route taking in the scenic icons of Sydney as well as the history of making MGs in Australia.
This run is being coordinated with the MG Car Club UK, which is asking all MG Car Clubs around the world to help mark the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the founding of the MG Car Club with a unique run on 11 October.
We are also after any keen photographers who would be willing to position themselves on the route to capture our cars at some of the iconic locations.
