The MG Car Club

The MG Car Club was formed in conjunction with the MG factory in 1930 and has been providing top quality support for MG enthusiasts ever since.

The Club headquarters are based a stone’s throw from the original MG assembly line in Abingdon and whilst we actively embrace the marque’s illustrious past we’re focused on continuing MG’s high standards into the future.

The MG Car Club has been supporting you and your MG since 1930, we can save you money on insurance, spares, tickets and help you make the most of owning an MG.

The MG Owners Club was formed in 1973 to serve the growing needs of the MG sports car enthusiast. Over the last 40 years the MGOC has concentrated on making it easier, cheaper and more enjoyable to own an MG. Our vast membership base has helped earn us the reputation of being the World’s largest single marque car club.

MG Octagon Car Club

The Specialist Club for pre 56 MGs. Thank you for your interest in the MG OCTAGON CAR CLUB,

If you own a pre 56 M.G. or are just interested in pre 56 M.G.s then perhaps this is the club for you.

The Club was established in 1969 when a small group of enthusiasts in the Stafford and Stoke areas of England began to meet and cater for pre 56 MG.s in an effort to maintain and preserve the cars for which Abingdon was traditionally renowned.

The objects of the Club were to promote social and sporting meetings for the benefit of members, provide members with information, advice and assistance and generally further the interest in the preservation and renovation of MG. cars built prior to 1956.

The membership of the club grew quickly, and sub-groups formed throughout the World to organise local meetings for members. In April 1972 the Club achieved R.A.C. recognition, and became the only R.A.C. affiliated Club in the U.K. catering solely for pre 56 M.G.s. The Club is also affiliated to the Association of Classic Trials Clubs.

An important aspect of the Club is provision of a wide range of parts.

The Club is run by enthusiasts for the benefit of the membership

Our monthly magazine, the Bulletin is sent free to all members each month, containing a wide range of feature articles, technical tips, photographs etc. This publication is at the heart of the Club and the common link (apart from their cars) between members.

Regular events are organised throughout the year.

The club participates in major classic car shows throughout the year.

The Midget & Sprite Club (MASC)

The Midget & Sprite Club (MASC) was formed in October 1983 by a group of Midget and Sprite enthusiasts and has gone from strength to strength since then. Today the club welcomes owners and fans of all MG Midgets and Austin Healey Sprites from the original 1958 Austin Healey ‘Frogeye’ Sprite through to the last 1979 rubber bumpered MG Midget 1500 and all the many derivatives along the way.

The club is UK based, although we do welcome overseas members, and currently has around 1000 members whose interests range from perfect factory fresh cars, restoration projects, everyday runabouts
and serious racing cars. Whatever your interest you will find like minded Spridget fans in the club.
