Welcome to The MG Car Club Geelong Inc
Two Johns together
It's Formula 1 Grand Prix time in Melbourne and our own club member John (JB) got involved in the festivities and attended a GP breakfast. Guess who he got chatting to? Yep, that's correct it is the one and only Sir John "Jackie" Stewart. Good one JB.
We are lucky enough to have this video of the Classic Car Show. Thanks to Jim Hammond who put this youtube video together. CLICK on the picture below to watch the video.
Get your kids and grandkids into Competition
We are commencing a new youth training program which is structured to provide driving skills, basic car care and safety. We do need some assistance from parents (or grand-parents) in the initial learn to drive phrase which can all be done around our Breakwater Road facility. Our first activity is a come and drive day within the next few weeks where interested youth can see cars completing Motorkhana courses, go for a ride and even have a try themselves. On this day basic driver training will be available around the roads of the facility. (usually the first drives are done in the family auto car to make It easier.)
Next step: please contact Graeme Ruby who is heading up this project and register your interest so he can put together the come and try day.
Club Persons of the Year
Club persons of the year announced at the Annual Awards Luncheon were worthy recipients - Barb and Mac McKane. Barb and Mac work without fuss in the background of the Club as our Welfare Officers. Barb and Mac offer help and advice when required to ensure the well being of members.

Torquay Motor Show
Fifteen members entered their shiny cars into the Torquay Motor Show in February and competed in the Best Car Club Display. Unfortunately we were pipped out by the local Corvette Club, however our own Kevin Simonsen took out Best MG in Show with his lovely MG TF1250. Well done Kevin.
