packed event with a range of new features, including an enhanced live arena, to make it the biggest and best event on
the international MG calendar.
With 2009 being the 85th anniversary of the MG car company, MG Live! will dedicate the weekend to celebrating
the marque and its achievements through the years. The new MG Motors company, which has recently resumed production of
MGs at Longbridge (England), will display the latest MG TF.
For the first time there will be action on the track for the full three days, with races running continuously over the
