I had a great time at MG Live at Silverstone this weekend and in truth I enjoyed the journey down every bit as much as the event. The sun was shining and I made a last minute decision not to take the van but to drive down in our red MG TC. It was definitely the right call, although next time I'll wear a hat (I look like a beetroot this morning).
The event has changed over the years and now caters to a wider audience, even the latest MG models are represented, but it was nice to see that there are still a few old cars that make it down. I would have liked to see a MMM (pre-1936) grid but they're perhaps more suited to Hillclimbs than circuit racing. That said I did spot a nice P/Q-Type special on Barry Walker's stand.
The T-Types were flying as always, Peter Edney's TC looked on top form. I also saw a few blasts from the past including MNE4 (the TD) which used to belong to my friend Harry. A good weekend all in all and my TC has been upgraded with the installation of a tube of sunscreen in the toolbox!
