Further development work at MG Motor UK’s famous Longbridge factory has prompted a unique opportunity for enthusiaststs to name roads at the facility.

The carmaker is renaming five access roads to the new site and is asking MG owners, club members and fans to give MG orientated suggestions.

After being partly demolished in 2005 with the loss of Rover, Longbridge looks set to recover under the financial security of owner SAIC.

The new road names will reflect the heritage of the MG brand, which is currently gearing up to build its new model, the MG 6.

Winning entrants will be given an invitation to Longbridge and the chance to be photographed alongside ‘their’ new road sign.

With the deadline for suggestions set for Friday, 26 February, ideas can be submitted via the 'contact us' section at MG road name competition

Isn't that the problem? The MG you all remember hasn't existed for over 50 years!

The current version of MG is nothing more than in name.

I'm sure MG enthusiasts will be able to supply names of historical significance. The fact that many of us here cannot think of much. this is more our lack of knowledge, than the lack of MG history.

MG have been around along time.

Shame on us.

RV8 Road doesn't have much of a ring to it, does it? Same goes for A, B, C, F, TF, ZR, ZS, ZT, ZT-T... Lola Lane? To be honest, there aren't many examples to choose from!
