|Welcome to the MGCC Vic Concours web page. WELCOME everybody!|
have established this web page, in October 2016, to help all club
members to understand and appreciate our annual Concours event.
all you will find here is our Concours Manual. This manual will tell
you everything you need to know about the Concours, whether your wish
is to be a competitor, a judge, or simply someone who comes to enjoy
the social elements of the day. But we will be adding more features and
information as time goes by.

As you will probably already know,
be you “old hand” or new member, the club holds the annual Concours in
conjunction with the AOMC (Australian Organisation of Motor Clubs). It
is called the Classic Showcase of European Cars. Many other car clubs
attend this event, so there are lots of other makes on show, as well as
traders and other vendors.
It is a great day out- the biggest on
our calendar. No other event attracts as many MG’s-sometimes in excess
of 200 cars. Bring your partner, family and friends if you like, and
enjoy the friendship of our great club. It is truly an enjoyable day

is an “all of Club” event. All Registers, all models, all Club members,
whether entering the Concours events or not. It is our once a year
gathering where all members of the club can get together, with their
MG’s, and it is a chance to showcase our great club to other car clubs
and the public at large
THIS YEAR WE ARE HOPING FOR A RECORD ATTENDANCE, SO PLEASE DIARISE, GET YOUR CAR SPARKLING AND HIT THE ROAD.
Here follows some general instructions and information for old hands and newcomers.
1. Early Arrivals This
applies ONLY to nominated MGCC officials, judges and helpers. The AOMC
will open a gate on Armstrong Road for MG people at 7AM.
Other MG’s, please do not try to enter at this time and if you are early, please queue quietly, away from the gates.
2. General entry All
MG’s, may enter from 7.30 AM, and the Registration Desk at the MG
marquees will be open from 8 AM for all those entering the Open
Concours or the Club Competition Concours. Entrees will close at 9 AM
sharp. There is plenty of time for all, so follow please these
instructions and drive slowly inside the Racecourse.
3. Entry and Parking After
entering the main gate (there will be an MG sandwich board) as directed
by officials, proceed along the road to the MG entry point inside the
Racecourse itself. There you will see a friendly face, so:
3.1 Pay the $20 per car entry fee to the show. Exact money, no credit cards please.
Advise attendants if you will be entering the Open Concours for your
class of MG. They will place a green sticker on your windscreen, and
you will be given a Timetable for the day.
Proceed to the first traffic marshal who will direct you to your
Register’s parking area. Proceed to that area and park ONLY where
instructed by the parking marshal. This is important as space is
limited and the organisation of the event is much easier if your car is
in the correct place.
All cars entering the open Concours events MUST be driven to their
parking area. All MG’s on TRAILERS must be driven to the trailer
parking area to unload unless there is a good reason that they need to
be unloaded close to their parking area.
Cars in the various display classes, Master Class, Preservation,
Restoration, MG Racing and Youth on Wheels should be in place no later
3.6 As soon as you have parked as directed, go quickly to the Registration desk to complete your entry formalities.

All entrants should return to their car immediately to finalise

take into account this aspect.
All entrants should stay within the vicinity of their car during

how scoring is done and, therefore, how their car should be

AOMC British and European Car Show concludes at 2PM and, as this is a
