AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE MGCCQ MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE TO ALL MEMBERS:
The health and safety of all our members, their families along with fellow enthusiasts, volunteer officials and helpers are of upmost importance to us. Hence the Management Committee of MGCCQ has decided to cancel many scheduled events during this uncertain period of the Corona Virus Covid-19 Pandemic.
Along with other car clubs in Queensland, as well as MG Car Clubs in Australia MGCCQ has cancelled all competition events (Race Meeting at Morgan Park on 27-29 March; club hillclimbs at Mount Cotton on 18-19 April and 2-3 May; as well as the Queensland Hillclimb Championships on 29-31 May) until the 30 June 2020. This will be reviewed on 26 May 2020.
Advertised Social events (e.g. day runs) have been postponed as we await the immediate period. The clubrooms are also closed until further notice. Our decision has been guided by the Senior Medical personnel and our State Government as well as Motorsport Australia.
Other events that have been cancelled include HSCCQ Motorkhana and Khanacross events until further notice, MacLeans Bridge Sports and Classic Car Display at the Belmont Rifle Range on 24 May and the RACQ Motorfest on 12 July 2020.
Update from Club Secretary, Malcolm Spiden on 28 March:
Found out that the Morgan Park website states that the circuit is closed until 30 June 2020 thus I will anticipate that the Historic Autumn races on 9 - 10 May 2020 and Motorsport Australia State Championship promoted by CORD on 5-7 June 2020 will be either cancelled or postponed.
Have no information regarding the Short Circuit Racing Association, no mention on their website to date.
No local, State and National Championship or World Rally Championship events, no Supercars rounds, or Formula 1 Grand Prix events until post June it appears.
No interstate hillclimb events (Dapto, Grafton), will not be able to pass the 'Tick Gate' at the border before the 30 June.
