MG Car Club wows crowds at Hong Kong's Cultural Centre

| 16 Nov 2012

A convoy of 29 cars from the MG Car Club of Hong Kong brought the waterfront of Tsim Sha Tsui to a standstill in the former British colony from 2-3 November.

The event attracted Abingdon machines stretching the years from Angus Wilkinson’s 1950 TD, to club chief Simon Clennell’s 1955 Magnette, a 1960 MGA owned by Gabriel Cheung, Sing Chau’s 1976 Midget, Mike Button’s 1974 MGB Roadster and a 1994 RV8 owned by Richard Grainger.

Judged Best in Show was Martin Siu’s pristine 1974 Midget.

Other awards went to Cheung’s MGA (Best Interior), Colin Barlow’s 1958 MGA (Best Bodywork) and Tony Cheung’s 1969 Midget (Best Engine).

Meanwhile, Juergon Wolter had owned his immaculate 1970 MGB from new.

Clennell said: "Expatriates dominated the event in the 1980s, but nowadays the locals have a bigger presence and that’s really encouraging. It’s been a fantastic day."
