Packed Race Programme for MG/Triumph 100
With the next race meeting for MG Car Club members drawing ever closer, drivers all around the country will be making final preparations for their races at MG/Triumph 100 on the historic Silverstone GP circuit on 10th & 11th June.
The Club’s motorsport team in collaboration with our invaluable friends at Equipe Classic Racing and MSV Racing have been working tirelessly to finalise plans for the two-day meeting which will run alongside the off-track activities.
For the MG Trophy, MG Cup, BCV8s and Midget & Sprite Challenge, MG/Triumph 100 will be their third race meeting of the year. They will be joined by the Cockshoot Cup and Triple-M Racing who will both be having their second outing of the season. Between them, they will be bringing an eclectic mix of MG and Austin Rover cars, the oldest were built in 1931 and the newest came off the production line some 80 years later. So, from pre-war, hand-built, rear-wheel drive cars to 20th century mass-produced front-wheel drive vehicles, there should be MGs on track to cater for most interests and the sight of the Triple-M cars on track is not to be missed. These cherished vehicles date from the early 1930s when MG could justifiably claim to be one of the most successful British racing marque in the world of circuit racing and record breaking.
From nimble sports cars such as the Elva Courier and Lotus Elite through to the shear grunt of Cobras and Mustangs, the Equipe Classic Racing series cater for a glorious range of Sports, GT, GTS and Touring cars from the 1950s, 60s and 70s, many of which are MGs. Their race series dovetail nicely with the MGCC championships and over the years the two organisations have developed a close and fruitful relationship.
The GT & Sports Car Cup will also be racing at Silverstone. Their 90 minute pit-stop race always attracts a spectacular grid of cars and this year’s entry list boasts no less than 7 E-Type Jaguars, 6 Austin Healey 3000s, 2 AC Cobras and a Corvette Sting Ray along with others including MGBs, TVRs, Morgans and Mini Coopers.
In addition to the track action there will be plenty to entertain you if you visit the MG/Triumph 100 infield there will be action in the Live Arena each day including the ever popular Russ Swift Stunt Driving, live music, trade stands and auto jumble.
