90 Years Of MG Showcased At Silverstone For MGLive!  Over 90 years of the MG marque will be showcased at the MG Car Club's annual celebration MGLive! at Silverstone Circuit on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th June, with models ranging from the 1920s to the latest launch from MG Motor UK.

Around 3,000 MG models will be on display from the Club's various registers, paying tribute to the manufacturer's motoring heritage. There will be MGs from all eras in action on Silverstone's Grand Prix Circuit as well as on static display on the showground, providing enthusiasts with a fantastic timeline.

MG Motor UK will be previewing the new MG XS compact SUV at MGLive! 2017. Previously unveiled at the London Motor Show in May, MGLive! will offer MG fans the first real opportunity to get up close and personal with the latest car from MG. Due to launch in the UK in late 2017, MG Motor's stand will feature a trio of XS', alongside the current MG range, the MG3 and MG GS.

Joining a display of the BTCC MG cars, returning MG BTCC star Josh Cook will be heading to Silverstone on Saturday to meet fans at MGLive! He'll be joined by former Triple 8 racers Sam Tordoff (2013) and Jack Goff (2015). The trio will be at Silverstone to sign autographs and meet fans while MG Motor UK will be hosting a Q&A session with the drivers on Saturday afternoon. They'll be on the Club's 635 Register stand for a signing session.
