Celebrate 50 years of the MGB in 2012

Great Escape Classic Car Hire, which operates the largest fleet of MGBs for hire in the UK, has announced a series of events in 2012 to celebrate 50 years of its most popular hire car.
The company, which has MGs based in Suffolk, Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Worcestershire, has created a series of unique experience packages for customers around the MGB’s 50th anniversary. These include an exclusive weekend package for the Blenheim rally and dedicated MG-themed touring days. Great Escape is also planning an MG-themed classic car rally around the Midlands and a charity Lands End to John O’Groats trip featuring four of the company’s MGBs.
“MGBs are our most popular hire car so we wanted to fully support the anniversary,” explains Graham Eason of Great Escape. “The B’s popularity never seems to wane and they are perfect hire cars – robust, reliable and easy to work on.
“Our packages are aimed at people who are considering owning an MGB or who are coming to Britain to join the celebrations and want to attend in a MGB.”
Great Escape Classic Car Hire’s MGBs typically travel over 10,000 miles every year. This year the fleet has made trips to Greece and the Scottish Highlands as well as several long holiday hires. The cars include three standard 1800cc MGB roadsters, a V8 roadster and a MG TD.
Great Escape Classic Car Hire was founded in 2006 and now operates a fleet of over 50 classic cars from 6 UK locations. Prices for standard self drive hire start at just £95/day.
