MG Car Club racers get ready for the green light

Published 15 March 2017

There is just one month to go until the start of the MG Car Club’s 2017 race season, which begins on Sunday 9 April, at Donington Park. MG Car Club racing sees MGs of all ages from T-types to modern ZRs competing on track at circuits across the country.

Racers with various experience levels are welcome, and fostering the next generation of motorsport enthusiasts is something the club takes very seriously. Half-price entry fees have been extended to young drivers up to the age of 25 to help kick-start their motorsport career and follow in the footsteps of the likes of former MG Trophy star, Jack Goff, who now races in the BTCC.

After opening the season at Donington Park, the Club will move on to Brands Hatch on the 29-30 April, before heading to Silverstone for MGLive! on the 17-18 June. Cadwell Park will be the next venue on the 22 July, before Oulton Park on the 2 September. Snetterton will once again be drawing the season to a close on 30 September and 1 October.

Race Competitions Secretary John Hutchison said, 'The 2017 race season is almost upon us, and we’re working hard to build on the success we achieved last year. The Club prides itself on being a competitive package for racers of varying levels of experience, and with a multitude of cars to choose from, it offers something we feel is very unique in Club motorsport.'
