Welcome to the MG Trophy Championship 2016

 

CC15_0530THE MG TROPHY is one of the UK’s best and most enjoyable single make club championships, offering high quality close racing for the front wheel drive MG ZR in 3 classes.

In recent years the MG Trophy has produced a number of drivers who have gone on to higher levels of motorsport with ex Trophy driver Jack Goff now competing in the BTCC having won the Clio Cup in 2012. This shows that this is the championship to see if you’ve got what it takes to race at the highest levels of motorsport. If you think this may be YOU why not try the cost effective MG Trophy and find out.

With regulations designed to keep costs to a minimum (eg sealed engines and gearboxes, max 15 new tyres in a season, etc), the series is suitable for both novice and experienced drivers.

For the experienced driver class A is for full race prepared ZR190 cars (190bhp) running on Dunlop (control) slicks/wets.

For drivers on a slightly lower budget class B is for the ZR in 170 bhp form running on list 1B Dunlop control tyres.

Class C is  for race prepared ZR 160 road cars that can be built for around £3,000, possibly the cheapest entry level tin top able to race on all the UK’s top circuits.

The points structure for 2016 will see all the classes competing together so any car from any class can win overall.

Friendly and helpful off track, and highly competitive on track, it’s undoubtedly one of the most cost effective single make club championships in the UK.
