The MG Car Club of Western Australia Inc. was founded in 1963 as a not-for-profit organisation administered by a committee of volunteer enthusiasts. The Club is affiliated with the MG Car Club of UK, which was founded in 1930 and is based in Abingdon. There are MG Car Club Centres in every Australian State and the ACT, and each year a National Meeting is hosted by one of these MGCC Centres over Easter.
The aim of the MG Car Club of WA is to maintain the MG marque and create a forum for owners of all types of MGs to discuss technical and common interest matters relating to the vehicles, as well as to participate in social outings and competition events. The Club now has over 250 members.
Each year the committee and other members organise a series of social and competition runs, barbecues, nog'n’natters, dinners, novelty events, driving skills, speed & performance events, vehicle condition inspections, Show’n’Shine/Concours d'Elegance, navigation trials and the premier event on the MG calendar "The Safety Fast Run". These events are generally well attended and have proven to be very enjoyable.
The Club is affiliated with the Confederation of Australian Motor Sport (CAMS) and conducts its competition events under CAMS permits and regulations.
The Club also has other advantages for members which include:
- Help in arranging concessional licensing for vehicles that qualify - See further information below.
- Access to the Club's comprehensive library of MG publications
- Technical assistance and advice from enthusiastic members
The Club publishes a monthly newsletter magazine, "The Octagon", outlining upcoming events and providing general information for members.
General meetings for all Club members, family and friends are held in the Clubrooms at 110 Hardy Road Bayswater on the third Tuesday of every month starting at 8.00pm.
These meetings keep members advised of current and future activities as well as enabling members to participate in Club decisions, or join sub-committees for the organisation of special events etc, should they so desire.
The Club welcomes visitors to these general meetings and accordingly if you have an interest in the MG marque, please accept our invitation to attend the next general meeting.
