The Midget & Sprite Club
The Midget & Sprite Club is the only classic car club dedicated to the MG Midget and Austin Healey Sprite. It offers a friendly home for all enthusiasts of the models, encouraging and enhancing ownership with restoration and maintenance advice, and a wide range of social activities across the UK and beyond. With a diverse membership, both in age and experience, you will always find a warm welcome from like-minded owners.
Members receive the award-winning monthly magazine Mascot, along with a host of other membership benefits including a 7.5% discount from Motaclan.
The Midget & Sprite Club was founded by a group of enthusiasts nearly 40 years ago, soon after production of the cars ceased. They recognised that Midgets and Sprites were under-appreciated and under-served by existing clubs, and that many potential owners would be denied the enjoyment of driving our wonderful cars as interest and numbers declined in the coming years.
As we celebrate our 40th year, we have an active membership across the UK and beyond: some of our members are original owners of early cars; many have come to know Midget and Sprites as classic vehicles only; some modify their cars for competition; whilst others prefer to enjoy their cars in the condition they left the factory. Whatever your motivation, you will find a warm welcome from everyone in the club.
Members are based mainly in the UK, with a smaller number overseas – mainly on the continent of Europe, with others in the USA, Japan, South Africa, and Australia. In the UK, the members belong to independently organised regions, who have regular meetings, and organise local events – often a drive to a motoring venue or a spin through the countryside. We also participate in chosen national exhibitions, and enjoy gathering at race-meetings, track-days, and activities organised by other clubs.
