It would always be a very difficult job to replace an International Representative like David Pelham however we are, at last, very pleased to announce that we have now appointed Neil Coombes and Richard Knight to the team of International Representatives. You can contact them via the Contact Us page. Please join us in congratulating them and thanking them for stepping up to jointly helping us to serve you and all MG Y owners.

The Events Calendar for 2016 is beginning to populate now! Added to the calendar for 2016 are The MG and Triumph Spares Day at Stoneleigh (this year on 21 February 2016!) and the ever popular Sommertreff Meeting. Numbers for the 2016 Sommertreff are strictly limited so book early now to avoid disappointment for the premier MG Y Europe event of the year!
