MG Motor India showcases its heritage and legacy by connecting with classic car owners at the 21 Gun Salute Rally
MG Motor along with its MG classic car owners, over this past weekend, took part in the much-revered 21 Gun Salute rally for the second year in a row. The rally was flagged off from India Gate and the entire convoy made its way towards DLF cyber hub Gurgaon. Leading the pack was the 1924 MGA, MG’s first-ever model that went into production. The event was held with the support of the MG car club in the UK allowing owners of classic MGs to connect and exchange stories about these classics. The MG brand has a legacy of nearly 100 years and a few of their iconic two-door coupes and roadsters made it to the rally. Owners got to share their pride and joy with on-lookers who marvelled at these vintage rides.
The 21 Gun Salute Rally is not just an event but a journey that brings together vintage car owners and creates the foundation of a ‘car club culture’ and ‘connected community’ in the country.”
Flagging off the rally, Adam Sloman, general manager, MG Car Club (MGCC) UK, said, “Connecting with past MG owners in India helps us in strengthening the bond between the global MG community. It feels great to hear stories of Indian MG classic car owners and see some of the most iconic and rare models like MGB, MG Midget and MGA which signifies the strong heritage of MG cars in India.” Founded in 1930 in the UK, MG Car Club (MGCC) is one of the oldest car club in the world, with over 50,000 members worldwide.
Gaurav Gupta, chief commercial officer, MG Motor India said, “MG is a brand that car lovers have cherished for close to a century. Connecting with the owners of MG classic cars enriches us with stories of the past, allowing each one of the participants to have a trip down memory lane. The 21 Gun Salute Rally is not just an event but a journey that brings together vintage car owners and creates the foundation of a ‘car club culture’ and ‘connected community’ in the country.”
