The MG Car Club Belgium is organising the European Event of the Year (EEOTY) in Newport from Sunday, 26 June until Friday, 1 July 2022. Two hotels with sea views, one in Newport and another in Ostend are available for participants.
Registration will be available on the website https://eeoty2022.mgcarclub.be/ as of Saturday, 6 November 2021 at 12:00 (CEST). The registration is based on a “first come first serve” basis. After registering on the website, a message will be sent to the first 251 participants. To complete the registration a deposit must then be paid within a week. Within 10 days a code will be sent. This unique code allows you to book directly your hotel room The financial settlement of the stay is therefore entirely done through the hotel. Also, special codes for camping and mobile home programmes will be available. A covered parking is provided and is included in the participation price of the EEOTY -2022.
With the Covid situation in mind, it is also important to mention that a cancellation insurance is provided by the hotel. This insurance is included in the hotel fee.
The price for the European Event of The Year 2022 includes breakfasts, lunches, dinners (3 meals a day), all visits and activities.
The EEOTY team offers you an unforgettable experience. From Sunday to Thursday. The guests of this event will enjoy beautiful tours, scenic and historic places (Bruges is a UNESCO World Heritage City).
There will be four groups of approximately 65 cars. Each group has its own specific colour. Each group will drive a different tour each day. Each day the tours will start at the same location, Nieuwpoort Marina.
To compensate for the CO2 emissions, a small contribution is included. This will allow us to plant trees in Nieuwpoort.
