I think the MG Web Ring has been gone for a long time, like years even.

The MG Site Ring is different, and I have been managing that one for 
many years.  As of first of this year Bravenet discontinued their 
site ring service, without notice.  So the long standing MG Site Ring 
(with about 140 remining linked member web sites) is suddenly 
defunct.  If you have a link to that service, you can now remove the 
MG Site Ring linking block from your web page.  They pulled the plug 
so suddenly that I didn't even have a chance to notify the Ring 
members, so there was no opportunnity to make other 
arrangements.  Sometimes free is not such a good deal.

On the other question, the domain name mgcars.org.uk had been 
dinscontinued some years ago, and was replaces with 
mg-cars.org.uk  (add the hyphen).  I don't know why, but in the 
meantime the old domain name was bring forwarded to the new one, so 
everything has coniinued to work.  I guess after some years they 
finally stopped paying the old domain name fee and let it laps.  So 
if you have anything linked to www.mgcars.org.uk you can change the 
link to www.mg-cars.org.uk and it should work again.
