The National Rally

Held every other year the National Rally draws some 80 cars and 130 people on average. The four days of Motokhana, Concours D'Etat, Speed event and Trial together with the Rally Dinner are all great events and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attend.

The responsibility for organising the rally moves around all the Centres. The next one is being organised by the MG Car Club (Wellington Centre) and is, for the first time, in Wellington (the Capital of New Zealand) beginning on Saturday the 21st February 2020. Please make sure you mark your diary with the dates otherwise you could miss out!!!!

A wonderful opportunity to participate with other MGCC members in this major event in the "most liveable city in the world" The National Rally will combine traditional events with MG comradeship set against the "Capital City" landscape.

Additionally, there are others close at hand in Island Bay and Miramar so you will not go hungry. The accommodation is only at the Brentwood Hotel as at the same time the New Zealand Festival and various other sports activity are on and accommodation is at a premium.
