CALLING ALL CLASSIC SALOON RACERS

BMH AND MGCC ANNOUNCE A NEW 58-CAR RACE FOR MGLIVE!

British Motor Heritage (BMH) and the MGCC have a long history of collaboration, and this is set to continue through 2020 with the announcement of an all-new 58-car race for MG Live! (June 13/14). It will be for pre-‘66 classic saloons, and represents a particularly exciting opportunity for the owners of these popular cars, as it’s being staged on the Grand Prix circuit – the track on which F1 was born 70 years ago this year.

The regulations are basically the same as those for the Goodwood St Mary’s Trophy – the only other stipulations being the requirement of the cars to run on Dunlop Historic Race tyres and pump fuel. The event will be of 40-minutes duration, allow entries from either one or a pair of drivers, and will be preceded by a 20-minute qualifying session. Said BMH’s Managing Director John Yea: “The criteria have been specifically chosen to ensure a truly mixed field of everything from MGs to Minis and Lotus Cortinas to the mighty Ford Galaxies, so the sight and sound of the 58-car grid should certainly be something to savour!”

The race is by invitation only, so anybody wishing to participate should email details of themselves and their car asap to motorsport@mgcc.co.uk. 

Other 2020 collaborations between BMH and MGCC

BMH will also be supporting the MGCC’s five other 2020 race meetings. The backing will range from the provision of a ‘welcome centre’ at every venue, to that of a course car and multi-vehicle display for the Donington meeting over the weekend of July 11/12.

Said Bill Silcock, Chairman of the MGCC: “We greatly cherish our relationship with BMH, a company that is not only a valued supporter of our events, but without the products of whom many of our members’ cars would arguably be in inferior condition, or perhaps no longer exist at all.”
