The 2019 MG Car Club Sydney Concours d’Elegance & Display Day

Thanks to Allen Gower

Thank you to those who were able attend the premier annual event in the MGCC calendar. I hope you were proud to be part of it, I certainly was.

In all we had over 120 MGs on display, sparkling in the beautiful spring sunshine. What a perfect day to drive and show off our magnificent cars.

One couple brought their TC from Canberra and Jim Mather drove down from the “dust bowl” of Dubbo. His wife ordered him to take his beloved MGA to Sydney to clear his head of thoughts of the drought.

Many thanks to all our volunteers who made the day possible!

Setting up on the day of the event began at 6:30am. Positions had been marked out on the Saturday, when it was noticed that the grass needed to be cut. The following day, only the stakes had to be knocked in and signs mounted.

Frank Perry and myself ‘scored’ the most numerous group to judge – the MGB Mk II and BL, completing the task just before midday.

This gave me some time to take some photos, grab a bite to eat and enjoy some welcome rest. My Rubbernose came in third in concours! Well, it was third out of three – not to worry!

Despite the bright sunshine and mild temperatures, numbers were down against 2018’s concours. However, a great day was had by all, enjoying the warm spring weather and the company of the club and the magnificent MGs they brought out.

    Why aren’t there any results for the MGR V8’s in the Concours notes above or the Magazine.
    There were some very presentable cars there (5) yet nothing in the results.!

    I’m so impressed with the Concours event that I now want to buy a Magnette ZB.

Got something to say?
