Trophies

The Wellington Centre of the MG Car Club has several dozen trophies which are awarded each year for a range of competitive and service-oriented activities.

There are basically two types of trophies, ‘Club’ trophies and ‘Race’ trophies. Because a trophy is competed for at the November Classic or the September Intermarque meetings this does not necessarily make it a “Race” Trophy. Race Trophies are those that can be won by non club members at the November event (however, a club member may also win them). Club trophies can only be won by a Wellington Club member.

Club trophies are presented at the annual Prizegiving Dinner normally around the end of October and Race Trophies (for the preceeding year) are presented at the MG Classic Race Dinner on the Saturday night.

The Club's Trophies together with their current holders are:
