National Rally

Wellington

Welcome to the last of our Newsletters, updating the arrangements for the 10th Anniversary National Rally 2020, so you are able to make hopefully a decision about attending even at this late stage, what is going to be a seriously good National Rally, with something for everyone in the excellent programme outlined below.

The MG National Rally Organising Committee are really concerned at the lack of numbers attending this Rally and ask for those people who could make it to give it serious consideration - we are down 50% on the MG National Rally numbers at the Timaru Rally in 2018. We were expecting between 120 and 130 MG members coming but at this date we have only 85 registrations. Those that are coming will have a fantastic time!!!!

We also again enclose the Entry Form as an attachment. The Entry Form is also available from the MG Car Club (Wellington Centre) Inc's website, for downloading and completion.

We set out below what is now the final programme with times included:
