We have worked hard to offer an extensive range of events and we're confident that visitors to MGLive! in 2011 will enjoy the event more than ever before."
"Utilising Silverstone's prestigious F1 circuit means competitors racing at MGLive! have the opportunity to compete on the same track Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button et al will experience some two weeks later. Additionally, the track tours on Sunday allow event visitors to drive their MG road cars on the Silverstone track in the popular circuit tours!"
"There will be more significant announcements in the coming weeks so I'm urging MG enthusiasts should keep an eye on the official event website (www.mglive.com) in the lead up to the celebration"
