MGCC Northern Centre - Home Page

Pretoria, South Africa

Affiliated to the MG Car Club, Abingdon on Thames, England

The Northern Transvaal Centre was formed in 1978 to meet the needs of MG owners and enthusiasts in Pretoria and surrounding areas to the East, West and North in the then Transvaal Province of South Africa. In 2002 it was renamed Northern Centre.

The Centre's membership is about 120 of whom most reside in and around Pretoria and about 20 are "country" members. These include 6 Honorary Members and 6 Life Members. The Club's own Clubhouse was completed in 1991.

A general meeting of members (called a "Natter 'n Noggin") is held on the first Monday of each month (details below).

Every third Sunday of the month some form of event (social or competitive) is organised which usually takes the form of runs to places of interest, driving tests, treasure hunts, etc but might also include concours competitions and even longer, week-end away runs.

What benefits are there?

Advice, support and assistance is always available regarding the source and availability of spares, or any special services that owners may require. Advice can also be given to assist those wishing to import spares from overseas.

A monthly Newsletter is published giving details of forthcoming events, meetings etc, as well as technical tips and articles of general interest to MG owners. Archive editions may be downloaded from this website by clicking Newsletter.

Members have the facility of joining a group car insurance scheme which offers substantial benefits, especially to owners of older cars, at very competitive premiums.

The club is affiliated to the MG Car Club in England, as well as being a member of the South African National Body.
