The Classic Fun Runs
Organised by the MG Car Club, this "open to all" event
is one of the biggest classic driving events on the calendar!
In 2013 there will be six runs to choose from, starting at different
locations, and all finishing at Vellenoweth Green in St Heliers.
The MG Car Club launched the first Intermarque Concours d'Elegance
at the sunken gardens, Cornwall Park on December 1, 1972. Then as
now, the event was an inter-club affair and MG became the first winner
of the Inter-Club Challenge Shield. Honours also went to Alvis, Studebaker,
Jowett, Riley, and Citroen Car Clubs.
Until 1981 MG and Jaguar dominated the Cornwall Park event. Then
Porsche took the Shield and moved the rapidly growing show to Ellerslie.
