Midland Centre     Welcome ...

Download the 2021 Midlands Centre Calendar    HERE

Our history of Motorsport and Social events offers support and meetings throughout the eight Midlands counties and, together with our various local MG groups, we look forward to providing continued gatherings within the Midlands area. For details of your local Natter, please click on the 'Natters' link above.

A prime example of the events we organise is our annual Welsh Rallye - see selected photos alongside.

This regularly attracts more than 40 cars, their drivers and passengers for a 150-mile drive around the quiet country roads of Wales, all encompassed within a 2-night stay at a quality hotel.

Details of this and other events can be found on the 'Events' page - again, just click on the link above.

TWO IMPORTANT COMMUNICATIONS .....

Statement of MGCC Governance - 8th April 2021


Notice of MGCC General Meeting
- 17th April 2021
Dear MGCC Midland Centre Members,

Yesterday evening, (7 April), we received a statement from the MGCC Executive Committee (EC), that mindful of the decision by the recent meeting of the club`s council, (made up of representatives from the CRBs), that overwhelmingly expressed no confidence in the in the conduct of the EC in its handling of affairs most notably concerning the dismissal process concerning the conduct of an employee of the club and other disciplinary matters applicable to other employees, following which three directors saw fit to resign. With the imminent staging of an EGM scheduled for the 17 April called to ratify the motion of no confidence in the actions of the EC, the remaining directors have resigned with immediate effect with the exception of Peter Cook who remains in post to ensure continuity of the club`s affairs including temporary co option of a "shadow" board until new directors can be voted in at the EGM.

Given the very difficult situation the club had found itself in we can be grateful that this decision has been arrived at thus avoiding any further debate and consequent polarisation of views. This now clears the way for the creation of a new board and a fresh start for the club.

None of what has occurred has in any way affected the club`s programme of events as we continue both at Centre level and nationally to forge ahead with opportunities to enjoy our MGs and all that the marque stands for.

Roger King - Chairman Midlands Centre.

Dear Club Member

Notice is hereby given that a general meeting (Meeting) of the Company will be held virtually by Zoom on Saturday 17th April 2021 at 11 a.m.

The CRB's are convening the Meeting in accordance with the powers conferred upon us by section 305 of the Companies Act 2006 as a result of a failure by the directors of the Company to comply with the requirement in sections 303 and 304 of the Companies Act 2006 to call a general meeting of the Company within 21 days from the date of receipt by the Company of a requisition from us to call a general meeting.

The appointed voting representative of all CRB';s will be asked to formally vote in of a new Board of Directors (EC).

Midland Centre     About 2021... NEW...  Triumph & MG Weekend 13-15 August ...
The Midland Centre firmly believe that its time to consider some new ideas for getting the MG's meeting again in our region during the Spring and Summer in 2021.


In total, the Midland Centre are planning 14 specific events during the year and we would really like as many of you to be involved with them, so take this opportunity to add them into your personal diary now.

It is planned that some New Events will join the Calendar to enable Midland Centre Members to have a Run out in their MG's and give them the opportunity to meet fellow owners and enjoy some real MG Midland Fellowship.

Being aware that some local MG Groups and Natters alrea
dy arrange long standing runs like the Charnwood Caper in May and the Ratae Run in June, we will try to avoid date clashes and these new events are listed within our web pages.

For more information, continued updates and the very latest news on them all please follow the link to the 'Events' page throughout the year. In addition a full list of the forthcoming two months events will be listed within the Midlands Centre page in all monthly Safety Fast Magazines during 2021.
This new event marks a historic collaboration between Triumph clubs and the MG Car Club to create the Triumph and MG Weekend at the Three Counties Showground, Malvern 13 – 15 August 2021.


"The Midlands Centre is thrilled to have this great event within our area, probably the first time ever we have played host to such a prestigious MGCC event. Within hours of the news breaking, your Centre committee had started work on how we can add to the attractions being offered to make the gathering an historic occasion. Already we are planning a run through the delightful surrounding countryside to add to the experience of a joyful weekend.

We welcome joining our friends from the Triumph clubs but advise them that they will witness the might of the MG marque that will dwarf all. But only if you make a date to join us".

Roger King - Chairman MGCC Midland Centre

News Story   Update on Welsh Rallye ...
It probably doesn’t come as a real surprise, but it is with great disappointment that we have to inform you that the WR, scheduled for May, has been again postponed, until May 2022.

You will know the reasons why we have taken this decision given the ongoing Covid Pandemic. Perhaps we could have staged the run itself, but full socialising remains extremely uncertain and since this is a core part of the attraction we feel we have little choice but to postpone.  We did explore an alternative event based in Hereford over the August Bank Holiday weekend, (the only available hotel) but again we could not be certain that social distancing rules within the hotel environment would have been lifted fully by then.

The Centre committee however are working on a special event for Sunday 29 August that will incorporate a run and gymkhana designed for us to have daylong fun in our MGs. Watch our website and Safety Fast for further details. Ok, it`s not quite the same as the WR but given good weather, an attractive route and open-air activities, it promises to be an enjoyable experience. Meanwhile we do hope to be able to welcome you to the WR22 next May.

From us all at the WR Team, continue to keep safe and ever optimistic we can all meet together soon.

Roger, Brian and Paul.
