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 100 members, with over 150 cars.

2019 Jaguar Simola Hillclimb

This iconic event, in its 10th year of running in 2019, has had support from the members of the South Cape Centre from its inception.  The club’s contribution in the early years involved mainly assistance with parking control and crowd control on the course, but for the past several years we have occupied a key position as Pit Marshalls.
Although for many of the volunteer members, Classic Friday of this three day event holds the most interest, our MG Car Club team remains on duty in the pits for all of the runs.  They assist in the pits with crowd control, car pulling and start-line marshalling, displaying competence and skill gained from experience.

Note: Contributions each year from Hill Climb Gate Money go to the S.Cape Centre of the MG Car Club and are used to support a wide range of local charities.


2018 Wrap Up

With 2018 almost a thing of the past, the South Cape Centre is now well into its second decade. The club continues to flourish with constant membership numbers and a good turnout of members at events. The regular last-Sunday-of-the-month breakfast runs are especially well attended as are many of our other outings.
Special events to look forward to for the future are:

The MGCC has a very good working relationship with the Garden Route Motor Club and many events are attended by members of both clubs. The cooperation and good will between us will continue to be fostered.
This cannot be recorded without mention of the drastic Knysna fires of 7th June 2017 when eleven MGs were lost and this will long be remembered. The extensive fires of November 2018 went a long way to rekindle some of the emotions experienced in the previous year but fortunately from our members and their cars’ perspective, was less damaging. The club’s sympathies go out to those who have lost.
