MGCC Auto Test at Mount Stewart Grounds

0 Replies

It’s hard to find dates for these MG Car Club events but as i knew a few folk entered for it i thought i would head over and take a few pictures for the site as i haven’t managed to get to an autotest this year and being 15minutes from home here i was at a beautiful setting on the Ards Penninsula, Mount Stewart Estate which is run by the national trust and the club use it a few times every year. Tight, dusty tests with NO room for error and well done to all the drivers as i wouldn’t have fancied doing it never mind in some rather clean "classic" MG’s. As usual there was a few mini’s, a mini special, nova’s, even 2 E30 3series BMW’s and my favourite car of the night was David’s mk1 Starlet. Graham

There is footage available from MG Car Club’s Autotest at Mount Stewart 24-05-05 farmyard test – all competitors taken on both runs. Plenty of action…… some boys getting it wrong! These guys/girl really know how to use the handbrake from an amazing RWD 5dr Starlet to a beach buggy… 32mins of footage taken. Footage available on both VHS and DVD which is fully edited, titles and cases (with covers) e-mail me with your requirments – [email protected] Gareth McKay
