Sports & Saloon Car Races (MG Car Club)

April 9th

The MG marque has been synonymous with motorsport since its inception, and despite the varying fortunes of this iconic brand over the decades, hundreds of cars still go racing regularly, with classics such as the Midget remaining in action, as well as hordes of more modern machinery.

Event

MG Car Club

Modern MG machines do battle in the MG Trophy races, which features purpose-built MG ZRs, MGF, MG TF and LE500 cars in action, while a huge range of classic and modern cars compete in the Peter Best Insurance Challenge – look out for Midgets, MGBs, MGCs and even MGFs here! More Midgets and the classic Sprites race in the Midget & Sprite Challenge with powerful sports cars in action in the BCV8 Championship.

Look out too for the very popular MG Metro Cup, featuring packed grids of this little but entertaining car. Thanks to low budget requirements, this has remained an extremely popular series over the decades and has even produced touring car stars.

The club also joins forces with other championships, meaning visitors can also expect to see racing from other brands including Jaguar, Aston Martin, Morgan and much more.
