2024 MG National Meeting

Tamworth March 29 - April 2, 2024

The MG Car Club Sydney warmly welcomes you to Tamworth, for the 2024 MG National Meeting March 29 to April 2, 2024.

Situated on the Peel River, on the spur of the Great Dividing Range and backed by the Wentworth Mounds, Tamworth is a buzzing country town in northern NSW offering a lovely mix of heritage, adventure, sports and culture, almost equal distance between Brisbane and Sydney. Early explorer, John Oxley, said in 1817 “no place in the world can offer more advantages to the industrious settler, than this extensive vale.” Surrounding villages such as Barraba, Manilla and Nundle have their own charm, and act as a contrast to the bright lights of the regional capital. Exploring these destinations will leave you with an experience that will be remembered long after you depart.

Plans are well in hand for this exciting celebration of the marque, including motorkhana and speed events, a concours d'elegance and tours around the scenic countryside to take in historic gold towns and local attractions. Plenty of social activities are planned as well, including the country B & S ball, rocker cover racing and a ladies' luncheon.

MG Marque of the Century

MG cars had their roots as a sales promotion sideline of Morris Garages, located in Longwall St, Oxford. This was a retail sales and service centre for Morris’ cars. Cecil Kimber joined the dealership as its sales manager in 1921 and was promoted to general manager in 1922.

In 1923, Kimber was inspired to improve sales and as such developed a range of his own special versions of sporting bodied Morris Cowley and Morris Oxford cars. These had lower suspension, higher performance engines, better steering box, raked steering wheel and a sloping front windscreen. They were initially known as “Kimber Specials”.

The MG octagon badge was created November 1923, however it was not registered as a trademark by Morris Garages until 1 May 1924. The M.G. octagon motif first appeared in advertising and on cars in 1924, but it was not until the company was listed as an autonomous company in 1928 that the cars became generally known as MGs, instead of special bodied Morrises.
