Perhaps because the P101 promo film was shot there ?

Sounds an interesting set up. I remember spending a day with my dear departed mate Richard Gilbert doing a shoot for MOG magazine. It was before most of the buildings were restored and we were given free reign to explore....which we did! I love the place....just wish I wasn’t so far away from it.

Morgan is getting into the "professional" world.
Absolutely the right thing to do, but at the same time another step down their pathay into the modern world and the loss of the glorious amateurism and garagiste mentality that was the old Traditional Morgan!

This really is a good responsible action on the companies behalf and can do nothing but good whilst providing an extra source of income.

I also think it’s a message that says we are interested in more factory direct sales 😉 and why not it all dovetails in neatly with their new showroom and Morgan tours operation.

It's good to see the Latin investors shaking things up a bit with new ideas, I've got a feeling the new 3 wheeler is going to have some of the old guard spitting their pipes out too innocent.

Times are changing Peter. Whilst the old days of Morgan are charming and something to be proud about, I think they need to be looking to the future now, particularly with the supposed death of the ICE in nine years time. I’d love them to build a modern car to compete with the likes of Aston. It will be interesting to see exactly what they plan for the MTW..!

Indeed the world is changing and I'm pleased that MMC is evolving, the company had to change or die.

Hybrid MTW, perhaps?

Wasn't that impressed last time I went, but have booked as it's somewhere to go in January!

It's a rip off now. £15 per person I think.

Thirty quid to go and walk around a car park full of Porsches..? No, ta.

It used to be such a charming place, but they only want your money these days.

Shame.
