Welcome to the 2019 MG Trophy Championship

THE 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, and new for 2019, the MG3.

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 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 either Dunlop (control) slicks/wets, or Yokohama (control) slicks.

Class MG3 is for full race prepared MG3 cars (190bhp) running on the same tyres as Class A.

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.

2019 will again see all classes competing together with the same points structure. There will be a winner for each of the four classes, but the Overall Champion will be the top scorer from the Enhanced Power classes A, B, and MG3.

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.

Every year we raise money for our chosen charity, previously we raised over £2,000 for Assert, the charity for those with Angelman Syndrome. For 2019 the drivers have voted to continue support for a second year for Rett Syndrome, and every car will carry Retts stickers.
