The annual show and shine will also incorporate the club’s Concours d’Elegance, a competition to find the most faithfully restored MG over several different divisions.

Normally the show and shine and the Councours d’Elegance are held separately, however club captain Iain Trainor said this year the events had been combined to give visitors a real insight into the restoration of the MG cars.

‘It’s our big public event for the year, and there will be between 120 to 150 MGs of all vintages on display,’ he said.

‘We’re also holding our Councours d’Elegance, which is a competition for the best, most original restored vehicle.

‘That will be a definite highlight because these cars are unbelievably restored, and they are judged under 12 scoring elements for a total score out of 195, taking into account things like the paintwork, the body condition and even originality and authenticity.

‘My MG, for instance, isn’t faithfully restored but it will still be on display.’

The event, which opens on Sunday, March 24, from 2pm, is open to the public, with a sausage sizzle and refreshments available to the public.
