450 and counting for Brands Hatch
The MG Car Club is looking forward to a successful race weekend at Brands Hatch that will see over 450 entrants taking part over the course of the two-day meeting. Over 450 drivers have signed up for Brands Hatch where 23 races will take place including the Club’s seven Championships as well as Porsche and BARC’s guest races.
The MG Car Club’s Trophy Championship is maxed out for the first time this season, with 34 cars lined up and reserves also in place. The Equipe GTS series is also full, with the same number of cars on the grid and reserves if needed. Brands Hatch will again be hosting this year’s Mary Harris Trophy – a special one-off race for Pre-war Triple-M MGs that first started in 1963. 2016 sees an eight car rise from last year, with 22 MGs set to take part.
The other grids that will be racing over the weekend have no less than 20 cars signed up, another brilliant milestone for the Club.
Race Competitions Secretary John Hutchison said: “These big numbers just show how popular racing with the MG Car Club is. Over 450 entrants across the weekend is a huge figure, and something we’re very proud of.”
Kimber House staff will be present across the entire weekend, supporting the MGCC racing and promoting membership. Tickets can be bought in advance at www.brandshatch.co.uk or on the day.
