To celebrate 95 years of MG, Brooklands hosted its annual MG Era Day on 14 April – among those attending was club member Ian Hanstead who reports.
Despite being a predominantly cold and cloudy day (sleet shower first thing) this did not dampen interest with hundreds of MGs attending the event. To show off and appreciate the marque, MGs through the ages were lined up on the old start/finish straight. Cars were parked in rows of approximately 12 similar cars, starting from the earliest to the very latest. I took my place along with other RV8 owners. Some cars paraded around the race track while others took part in a hill climb.
