Peter James Insurance launches two new exclusive club partnerships with the MG Octagon Car Club and Midget and Sprite Club

20 March 2024

We are delighted to announce two new, exclusive partnerships that will benefit enthusiasts who own both pre-1956 MG cars and the MG Midget and Austin Healey Sprite models through the provision of tailored insurance schemes.

The MG Octagon Car Club has been in existence since 1969 and caters for the owners of pre-1956 MGs including the YB and original TF models.

The Midget and Sprite Club (MASC) was founded by a group of enthusiasts nearly 40 years ago, soon after production of Midgets and Sprites ceased.

The new club schemes have been designed with input at every stage from club volunteers and members to tailor the offering to the specific needs of these MG and Austin Healey Sprite owners. In particular, there have been considerations relating to the specific requirements of the vintage MGs covered by the MG Octagon Car Club and also the huge variety of activities undertaken by owners of the Midgets and Sprites.

In these times where value for money and members’ benefits are crucial to clubs, we are ensuring that insurance is truly a reason to remain a member of your chosen club, but also that the scheme is helping the club to invest in new resources, benefits and activities for its members and the preservation of historic MG and Austin Healey Sprites.

The schemes will offer young drivers various levels of cover, including accompanied driver cover for getting involved with the family car. Young enthusiasts who are lucky enough to own their car, and are either active members, offspring of members or vouched for by the club in some way can be covered with their own policy.

We have an unrivalled reputation for the provision of specialist classic and vintage vehicle insurance having been at the heart of the historic vehicle community for decades. This close relationship gives our team an understanding of the importance of the membership-based organisations that form the backbone of the classic car community.

Club members can now benefit from: *

  • Exclusive rates for club members.
  • Member-to-member cover – drive another club member’s cars with fully comprehensive cover.
  • Free salvage retention.
  • UK & European breakdown cover included at no additional charge.
  • Free agreed value.
  • Tools and spare parts cover.
  • Self-repair option.
  • Legal expenses cover included.

Dave Youngs, Partnerships Director at Peter James Insurance said,
“These two clubs represent two very different eras of MG and therefore require a scheme that is truly tailored to their needs. We have been able to achieve that by working closely with the volunteers who run both clubs to design a scheme based on the exact requirements of members. These new insurance schemes will not only provide competitive insurance cover but will also invest in the clubs to ensure they remain healthy, active and able to invest in members’ benefits.”

To take advantage of these schemes as a member of either club, please call our expert friendly team on 0121 274 5378.
