2023 MG National Meeting 7-11 April

December Update

Season’s Greetings from the MG Car Club of SA and the Organising Committee for the 2023 National Meeting.!

In the Christmas story the angels bought Good News. In the spirit of the season, this update also brings good news. You can now register to attend the 2023 MG National Meeting. Included with this update there are two important documents. The first is information about the registration process. Please open and read this document before you begin to fill in the registration form. The document has been written to answer Frequently Asked questions and provide information about why we are collecting some of the data. The second document is the Supplementary Regulations. It is expected that all competition entrants will read these.

The table below shows the registration fees. Ages for the Juniors are the ages on January 1, 2023. Please note the change in fee structure, compared with previous National Meetings, as per a decision made at the 2022 Delegates Meeting. This applies to a competitor who will be displaying a car in the Concours and then doing social events only.

Standard Registration fees are applicable until midnight (Adelaide time) on February 24, 2023. Late Registration fees are applicable from this time until midnight (Adelaide time) on March 17, 2023. No registrations will be accepted after this time.

Information about Regalia is included in the Registration Information. Please note that you will not be able to purchase regalia during the National Meeting. Regalia ordered using the registration form will be available for pick-up at registration on April 7, 2023.

Enquiries about registration can be sent to our Registrar, Chris Bray, at

The National Meeting website is a primary source of information and contacts for the event and is updated as more details become available, so check it out at

And if you haven’t booked your accommodation, I urge you to get onto it ASAP! Adelaide is hosting the AFL Magic Weekend featuring all teams from April 13th – 16th (the weekend after Easter) and as this also falls within School Holidays from most Eastern states there is likely to be very strong demand for hotel/motel rooms. The Stamford Grand at Glenelg, for example, is filling up fast. Straight after the footy is the LIV Golf Tournament at Grange which will put further pressure on accommodation.

There has been a request from visitors for Trailer parking over Easter, and Peter Micklem in Hahndorf has some space available. His contact details are or 0411238514. The Bend Motorsport Park has also confirmed trailers can be left there but at owners’ risk.

See you in Adelaide next Easter!!

Welcome to fabulous Adelaide and its stunning surrounds for the 2023 MG National Meeting.

Adelaide’s renowned for the ring of parklands surrounding the City, the wonderful beaches in one direction and cool green Mount Lofty Ranges in the other, and of course, the best wine districts in Australia just a short and pleasant MG-ride away!

Whatever you like doing (when you’re not in your MG), you’ll find it in Adelaide, in abundance.

And it’s not just the food and wine that’s mouth-watering.

The Easter National Meeting Program is already filling out with great events like these:

Friday April 7

  • Registration and scrutineering – Kauri Community and Sports Centre, Seacliff

  • Noggin’n’Natter (including Rocker Cover Racing) – Festival Function Centre, Findon

Saturday April 8

  • Concours – Wigley Reserve in beautiful Glenelg. The Concours is always a highlight of a National Meeting and everyone who brings an MG to Adelaide will be encouraged to display their car.

  • Theme party – Stamford Grand, arguably Glenelg’s top venue overlooking the State’s best-known beach.

Sunday April 9

  • Motorkhana – The Bend Motorsport Park, Tailem Bend. SA’s newest and arguably best motor sport venue with full facilities including on-site accommodation.

  • Kimber Run – Southern Adelaide Hills Wine Region with lunch at the Hahndorf Oval in the heart of one of SA’s most loved tourist precincts.

Monday April 10

  • Super Sprint – The Bend Motorsport Park, Tailem Bend.

  • Delegates’ conference – Glenelg North Community Centre.

Adelaide, the Hills and the Glenelg area have many different types of accommodation available to meet everyone's budget, and we encourage you to make bookings directly with your choice of venue.

You can find local accommodation here:

While there are many options, we know that Glenelg is always popular during National Meets in Adelaide.

It’s easy to get from Adelaide to Glenelg by tram and it has much to offer when you arrive. There is plenty to keep the whole family amused such as fishing charters, sailing, beach volleyball and activities, walking trails, bike hire, the famous Dolphin swim or watch or even a twilight cruise, reserves, playgrounds, BBQ areas, lots of history and an amusement centre.
