Latest COVID-19 News from Moss

Dear Customer,


As we all navigate our way through these uncertain times and the effects that the Coronavirus pandemic is having on all our lives, I write to you to inform you of the steps we are taking to ensure the wellbeing of our staff, customers and communities.


This is an unprecedented challenge for us all. I believe our greatest responsibility is to our staff, their families and our wider communities - ensuring that we all support the national/global effort to reduce the spread of the Coronavirus. To support this, we have put in place plans to keep people safe whilst remaining operational.

A different MGB !!

We have been asked by the chairman of the MGC register if anyone knows of an MGB that was modified by University Motors in the late 1960’s it featured a rectangular headlight conversion.

If you have any information and would like to share it with us please email

Spring Run 2020

The MGB Register Committee have decided to postpone our Spring Run due to the uncertainty that our start and finish locations will be open on Sunday 5th April due to the current coronavirus outbreak in the UK.

We hope you will understand and agree with our decision.

As we are uncertain as to how long we will be under the restrictions outlined by HMG, it will be very difficult to find a replacement date in 2020.
Therefore we will be holding the next Spring Run on Sunday 11th April 2021.

MGLive 2020 13-14 June

Celebrating the MG Car Club's 90th Anniversary!!

Coronavirus Update

The Covid-19 pandemic has developed rapidly and with news that motorsport’s governing body, Motorsport UK, has suspended all organising permits and Certificates of Exemption for motorsport events until at least 30th June, the MG Car Club has been required to postpone MGLive! 2020.

We are currently entering into extensive discussions with Silverstone and our other event partners to find suitable options to reschedule the event.

Something interesting for 2021

EEOTY - European Event of the Year 2021

19th to 23rd May

Dear MG friends
2021 is set to be a special year as it marks the MGCP – MG Club of Portugal 40th anniversary and we´re looking forward to seeing many of you to celebrate the date with us and participate in the European Event of the Year at the Portuguese Atlantic Coast near Lisbon.

The MGCP, founded in 22.10.1981, was the first single-brand car club to emerge in Portugal. It’s a non-profit association whose purposes are to promote the prestige of the MG brand and to assist their members in the tasks related to the maintenance and preservation of their MGs. Furthermore, it organizes events known as – Concentrações – which are recreational and social meets for its members, combining cultural, sports and gastronomic aspects as a pattern.

As far as distance is concerned we are aware of our geographical location and that´s why the event will run from Wednesday, May 19th through Sunday, May 23rd. A 5-day programme is being carefully developed in order to make it cost effective, memorable and with quality.

Based on the villages of Cascais and Estoril, where there are pre-selected hotels from which you can make your own personal choice, the check-in will happen in Estoril and the farewell party in Cascais. The included visits are to Cabo da Roca, Ericeira, Mafra and Setúbal at short driving distances (105Km/170Km or 65/105 miles) and the full-day visit to Lisbon, on the 20th, will be done by bus.

The main attractions are:

Road trips along:
o   Westernmost Atlantic Coast of Continental Europe
o   Arrábida Natural Park
o   Setúbal Peninsula Wine estate

Visits to:

o   Lisbon’s National Coach Museum
o   Lisbon’s National Azulejo (tile) Museum
o   UNESCO World Heritage sites:

·        Cultural Landscape of Sintra (1995) with Roca Cape (Cabo da Roca) - "Where the land ends and the sea begins."

·        Royal Building of Mafra (2019) – Palace, Basilica, Convent, Cerco Garden and Hunting Park.

We believe that Open Motoring Enthusiasts will have an excellent opportunity to practice it because the weather is quite pleasant in May.

For those arriving on the 18th we will have an optional visit for Wednesday morning. We are talking about going to the countryside by bus, a little further than 40Km/24 miles from Lisbon, and visit the Companhia das Lezírias, founded in 1836, that remains the biggest livestock and forestry estate in Portugal. On a total land area of approximately 18,000 hectares, the breeding of Lusitano horses is one of its main activities. But there is much more to see and taste because the barn owl (Tyto alba) ensures a special protection to the vineyards as it is essential for the ecological balance.

Booking starts: 1st July, 2020

We will return in April with more news and details. In the meantime, the MGCP kindly invites you to look at this video:


So, think about it.

Spread the news to your family, friends and club members.

Save the date and join the European Event of the Year 2021 in Cascais / Estoril.

Best MG Regards from the MGCP Board.

Lost & Found

  MGB GT:  TFN 47N  

 ‘I’m trying to track down a GT which was owned by my friend Chris until about 1997. 
It’s still taxed and MOT’d, so is still around.  This picture is of the car about 25 years ago. I wonder if it's in the register and if you can tell me where it is located and any contact details for the current owner.

Thanks in advance for your help.
MGB Roadster: WRA 768L

I’m trying to locate my old MGB roadster that I owned in the 1980s. I bought and ran him for a while before my husband renovated him for me. The car was very special to me, but as with all things finances grew tight and I had to sell it. It was a Damask red ( originally I think it was a bright red colour but I had him resprayed) The registration number is WRA768 L and I sold him in the South Yorkshire area. 
I would love to buy him back as my husband is sadly disabled and is not able to do another for me and the old car had really special memories.
I hope you can help me locate and possibly buy the car back. I know it’s a long shot, but you never know.

Thanking you in anticipation 
If you have any information about one of these cars please contact Andrew Vigor, MGB Registrar:
