The MG Car Clubs of Australia hold a National Meeting  over the Easter break each year.
This meeting is hosted by a different club each year.

THE JOHN WRATTEN TROPHY

This trophy dates back to the first National Meeting held in 1970 at Sydney.
At that meeting the Sydney MG dealers donated a trophy, which was presented to the Centre achieving the highest aggregate points score.
In 1971 the second National Meeting was held in Melbourne. Tragically, during the speed event at Calder, John Wratten sustained fatal injuries in an accident driving a MG-P-type.
John was Secretary of the Victoria Centre and actively involved in the organisation of that National Meeting.
At the delegates conference following the meeting they were so moved, it was decided (with the approval of the Sydney MG dealers) that their trophy be renamed the John Wratten Memorial Trophy.
Over the ensuing years the scoring method has been modified by various “fudge factors” to give all Centres an equal opportunity for success.
The fudge factor takes into account each MG Centre’s membership numbers and the distance travelled.

THE NUFFIELD OCEANIA TROPHY

In the early 1950’s, Lord Nuffield commissioned and presented to the MG Car Club UK, four prestigious trophies, in order that each year the home centre might recognise the achievements of overseas centres in various regions – Europe, United States, South Africa and Oceania.
After 1960 the Cup disappeared and with the demise of Nuffield/BMC, the competition for this trophy ceased. The trophy was found and returned in 1995.
While attending “MGs Down Under” in Perth in 1995, MG Car Club Chairman, Mike Hawke, and Overseas Director, Alan Kingwell, agreed that the Oceania Trophy would be reserved for Australia’s MG Car Clubs only, and that the Australian Clubs would decide the method of presentation.
After nationwide consultations, it was agreed that the trophy would be awarded on the basis of Concours and Motorkhana results. Each club is represented by 2% of their nominated ownership numbers with a minimum of five and a maximum of twenty used for averaging. The total points scored by each club’s 2% is totalled and then averaged with the highest average the winner

POSTERS
