When is the true centenary of MG? | Axon's Automotive Anorak

We love a good automotive anniversary here at Goodwood. This year we celebrate the 75th anniversary of the Goodwood Motor Circuit staging its first motor race meeting in 1948 and 30 years since the inaugural Festival of Speed was held, way back in 1993. This year also sees 75 years since Porsche built its first eponymous car, plus 60 years since the debut of the cult 911 (originally badged as the 901). As something of a self-styled automotive anniversary guru, I was therefore somewhat bemused to see that the centenary of two fine British marques – Triumph and MG – was celebrated jointly by the each marque’s enthusiast clubs at Silverstone a couple of weeks ago.
