Hope the Escorts have a good entry at Cadwell as that meeting is in our calendar.
Will also be interested to see how the DSCC holds up during the season.

Due to essential track maintenance, Silverstone has canned the MG Car Club MG Live event in June. The club is seeking alternatives.

Holy sugar, that’s a big ‘can’!!! Have to feel for MGCC, and of course those that included the event in their season plans. Will be interesting to learn what the ‘essential maintenance’ consists of. My completely uninformed guess is that maybe the track surface needs relaying in places before the GP?

According to the story on the Autosport website the resurfacing is required for the FIM to grant the circuit a license to hold the Moto GP in August . The resurfacing is being carried out in June and will also affect the 750 MC meeting on June 22/23 .

Looks like mid June is the only slot they can find without having to cancel the GP, Classic, Brit GT or Blancpain meeting! So poor MGCC and 750MC have to suffer, being further down the food chain.

If the resurfacing done last year had been up to scratch, then of course none of this would be necessary......

Press release from MGCC here.... https://www.mgcc.co.uk/mglive-loses-...ne-venue-date/

As you say, being lower down the foodchain the MGCC and 750MC suffer. As to alternatives, it would be interesting to see what they do. Among the current circuits I can only think of Oulton Park or Brands Hatch being able to accommodate this type of event. Angelsey might be a good circuit but for folks coming from Europe and there are generally quite a number, it would probably be a bit too far. The distance might preclude Oulton Park too.

According to the Silverstone statement it says that they hope to help the clubs find dates later in the year . One minor problem is fitting in with the clubs existing dates !

The non-racing stuff at MG Live is pretty huge, from memory, which is why Sillystone worked. Not sure which of the other circuits will be able to cope, and at the preferred time of year.......

My interpretation of the MGCC release is that they are looking elsewhere!

No doubt quite a few people will have pre-booked accommodation (and some travel) on a non-refundable basis. Great shame for all those involved.

I understand that one of the series planned for MG Live have already found an alternative meeting (whether this was intended as a replacement or just an additional event is not clear). Had an email from Equipe Classic Racing regarding two 40-minute pit stop races at the Spa Summer Classic meeting. I don't know if it is planned for both the GTS and Pre '63 series to have separate races, as per MG Live, or to have combined grids. Will let you know if I hear any more information.
