|Notes||The MG Car Club is thrilled to announce that TV’s Wheeler Dealers are coming to MGLive! taking place at Silverstone circuit on June 17th & 18th.|
Series stalwart Mike Brewer will be joined by the show’s latest recruit Ant Anstead, recently announced as Mike’s new partner for the upcoming series.
Neither Mike nor Ant are strangers to the world’s biggest MG show, with over 3,000 MG cars on show as well as spectacular motor racing on the GP Circuit. 2017 will be the third year in a row that Mike has featured at the event, and Ant’s second after an impressive debut last time around.
At MGLive!, Mike will appear on Saturday, while Ant will be with us all weekend, hosting the Live Action Arena, alongside some exciting stunt displays. The pair will be taking part in various games and challenges, which will see them get the audience involved in more ways than ever before!
Mike commented: “As ever with a live event, the best bit is the people - like-minded enthusiasts who share the same passion for cars. I had a fantastic time in 2016 with my good mate and new on-screen partner Ant Anstead and my dear friend Russ Swift. I can’t wait for more of the same this year.”
Last year saw the second-ever human gymkhana take place, which got members of the audience to compete in a timed activity course with car-related tasks.
The Mac Tools Challenge was the newest addition to the arena, with massive prizes awarded to those that could change a tyre in the quickest time using an electric wheel gun.
For 2017, Mike and Ant will be adding a new game that will see them face off against one another in a challenge that involves four wheels and lots of water!
MG Car Club General Manager Adam Sloman said: “We’re delighted to have Mike and Ant back with us for MGLive! this year – and officially as the Wheeler Dealers!
“After working so well together at the show in 2016, it would have made no sense to not have them back. Their enthusiasm has given the event an extra spark in recent years, and that’s something we want to keep hold of as it’s unique to MGLive!”
To celebrate the Wheeler Dealers at MGLive! 2017, the MG Car Club is giving people who book tickets to the show between now and April 30th the chance to win an MG SMEG fridge.*
Unveiled at last year’s MGLive! and having produced just 39 units, the limited edition fridge was launched to celebrate the new SMEG UK headquarters moving to the site of the old MG factory in Abingdon.
The collection of 39 fridges is a significant number as it represents the number emblazoned on the MG K3,
The K3 famously won the prestigious Mille Miglia road race in Italy, beating all marques in its class, the first non-Italian car to ever take honours, back in 1933.
Everyone that books tickets from now until the end of the month will be thrown into the prize draw where a winner will be picked at random.
For more information, the latest updates, and to book tickets, please visit www.mglive.com.
Notes to editors:
* The fridge has kindly been supplied by SMEG UK. The winner will be picked at random. The competition applies to members and non-members. Employees and directors of the MG Car Club are not permitted to enter.
MGLive! is the largest gathering of MGs in the world and is organised by the MG Car Club, the original Club for MG owners.
