The MG Car Club was established in 1930 in Abingdon, England, on the site of the original MG factory. The Club has a total membership exceeding 10000 spread amongst some 75 centres in many different countries throughout the world. Each Centre is an autonomous club with its own constitution and management committee. The South Cape Centre based in Knysna on the Garden Route was established in February 2007.There are currently more than 90 members, with over 118 cars.



The MG Car Club South Cape is affiliated to the South African Marque Clubs Association (SAMCA) and the MG Car Club (UK) Ltd.


2017 Cape Centres Gathering

The National Indaba, organised on a rotational basis by one of the 7 centres spread around South Africa, is held every four years.
Enthusiastic M.G. owners felt this was too long a gap before getting together again, so the Cape Clubs decided to organise a get-together to fill this gap. There are four Clubs in the Cape – Cape Town, Knysna, Port Elizabeth and East London and each gets a turn to organise a Cape Centres gathering.

It is the turn of the South Cape Centre to organise this event in 2017 and the venue has been chosen – the Wilderness Hotel, in Wilderness, near George has offered us a very attractive package for the week end of 25 to 28 May, 2017.
The previous Cape Centres, hosted by the Border Club from East London in 2015, was held in Craddock and was hugely successful by all accounts.

We now have to offer a similarly enjoyable event and planning is already well underway.
The hotel is large and spacious, fronting onto a lovely grassed area alongside one of the Garden Route’s iconic lakes. All bedrooms have en suite bathrooms and many have been recently refurbished. There is a large conference room where we will enjoy our evening meals and the breakfast room is large enough to take all of us with ease!

The hotel offers various attractions for all – miniature golf, sand pit, beach volley ball for the more energetic and health spa, manicure and sauna for those who prefer a bit of pampering.

The event will be limited to 60 cars and various activities will be organised. The area offers outstanding scenic drives, there is a very large Farmers Market on the Saturday morning and lots of walks around the lake where abundant bird life occurs.
We plan on running a simple competitive event and will have prizes for the winners. There may also be a display of the cars and a simple vote for the “The MG I would most like to have in my garage”. There will be adequate free time to allow participants to relax and do their own thing, too!

We have offered easy payment terms, split into 3 payments a number of months apart. Accommodation includes all evening meals as well as all breakfasts. Lunches will be for your own account and there are any number of establishments between George and Plettenberg Bay to meet this need. Initially we will offer registration to the 4 Cape Clubs and thereafter it will be opened to the rest of the country so early bookings are essential to avoid disappointment.
