The MG Car Club's "European Event of the Year" is being held in Aviemore, Scotland (at the heart of the Cairngorms National Park), from August 16th - 20th, 2013.  This is forecast to be one of the greatest gatherings of classic MG cars ever seen.

The event will coincide with the 21st anniversary celebrations of the organizers - the MG Car Club's Calendonian Centre.  Robert MacGillivray, one of the Caledonian Centre's organizing team, said: "The entry list doesn't formally open until October 1 but we launched our website last year so that enthusiasts could have early sight of what was on offer and to be placed on our mailing list".

"There will be 350 places available and already we've had over 300 responses with enthusiasts telling us that they are keen to come to sample what Scotland has to offer.  We've had expressions of interest from Australia, Canada, the United States, many from continental European countries and, of course, from MG Car Club members in the UK."

ScotlandThe event will be based at the Macdonald Hotel complex in Aviemore and begins on Friday, August 16th with a civic reception hosted by the HIghland Council. Thereafter, for the following four days, the MG tourists in iconic sportcars dating from the 1930s to modern vehicles produced under the reborn MG banner with cars manufactured once again at Birmingham in the UK, will sample the best that Scotland has to offer in terms of "driver" roads and all of the scenery and sights along the way.
