The author

Roger Parker bought his first MG in 1973, a 1968 MGB, that he still has in a much-modified form. He continued his passion for modifying MGs with more modern models, leading to an unparalleled knowledge of the mechanics of the MGF and TF. Prior to his retirement, Roger was a police officer for thirty years and he developed the first unmarked police patrol cars with electronic speed detection technology in the late 1980s and was instrumental in the development of ANPR [Automatic Number Plate Recognition] in the 1990s. Since his retirement- Roger has been supporting owners through his technical advisory role within the MG Owners Club.
