BMH and MGCC announce new 58-car race for MG Live!
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.
“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!” said John Yea, BMH’s managing director.
The race is by invitation only, so anybody wishing to participate should email details of themselves and their car asap to email@example.com.
