    Coys returns to the top flight at the MG Car
    Club's Silverstone event on 10-12 July 2009
    with Live Auction Feature.

    31 March 2009. Coys, the London-based
    motoring auction house has secured exclusive
    headline sponsorship of MGLive!, the MG Car
    Club's premier motor racing weekend to be
    held on 10-12 July 2009.

    Formerly well-known for its Silverstone
    Festival, Coys expressed delight at returning to
    the venue for their first major auction of the
    summer. Included in the sponsorship will be
    two endurance races lasting 55 minutes each,
    one on the Saturday, the other on the Sunday.

    Coys Managing Director Douglas Jamieson said:
    "Sponsorship of the MGLive! race weekend has
    come at a good time for us, when we are
    looking at expanding our calendar of events
    and widening our audience. The races were a
    great tradition of our Silverstone Festival, so I
    am delighted to have them reinstated."

    The races will comprise grids of 44 1950s to
    1965 sports and GT cars, all invited by Coys to
    participate. More than 100 cars are expected
    to be sold in the centrepiece auction. Entry will
    be via the catalogue, with two-person
    weekend vouchers included to allow entry to

    John Day, chairman of the MG Car Club, said:
    "We are delighted to welcome Coys to MGLive!
    and bring another live event to our Silverstone

    MGLive! will feature action on the track for the
    full three days, with races running continuously
    over the weekend. The MGLive! Arena will
    feature, among its many attractions, the
    amazing Russ Swift Precision Driving Team,
    including its two-wheeling, spinning, dancing
    and parking routines. This year, they will be
    demonstrating the versatility of the new MG
    TF LE500. Overhead, the crowds will be
    entertained by the amazing Blades 4-plane
    aerobatic team on the Saturday.

    To mark the 85th anniversary of the marque,
    there will be a display of MGs through the ages
    - from the earliest to the latest - with the
    intention of covering every model ever made.
    Those wanting a more hands-on experience will
    have the opportunity to take part in the Sunday
    morning circuit tour, or take a trip around the
    track in an MG ZR.

    Not only is MGLive! the largest MG event on the
    planet; it is also the biggest MG race meeting in
    the UK. For further information and booking
    details, please visit the dedicated event website
