The MG Car Club Speed Championship enters it’s 32nd season in 2019; organised by the MGCC North West Centre the Speed Championship provides club members with access to low cost motor sport in which their cars are competitive. By providing classes for all models of MG (and AH Sprites) with progressive modifications allowed, and with the emphasis on friendly competition, we hope to encourage more club members into affordable motorsport; one day this could be you!
Whether you are new to speed events or a seasoned campaigner there will be something for you in the Championship.
All novices should start by reading the excellent beginners guide. You can apply for the mandatory MSA licence on-line but once bitten by the ‘speed bug’ you’ll want to emulate Chris Cooper and his ‘bit of a brute‘.
You can choose to compete for trophies in either the Northern Series or the Southern Series Championship. Series events take place mostly north or south of Longbridge respectively but with some common venues such as Silverstone, where drivers score points for their chosen series only. All drivers also compete for the top award, the National Championship, for which points gained at any venue irrespective of its geographical location count. All awards are presented at the North West and South West Centres’ Dinners:-

Travel back to the year of 1746 and the battle of Culloden and the history of the Highlands.
Scotland has always been known as possibly having some of the most beautiful scenery in the world and this tour covers a lot of that scenery.
Starting from Stirling, we work our way through Glen Coe and then up to Inverness, with a few sightseeing stops and refreshments along the way. If you are a fan of the Outlander series, then come back with the Caledonian Centre on this three-day tour which explores Scottish History – Monsters and Motors all together in one fun filled fantastic weekend!
Stay at the superior Kingsmill Hotel and Spa in the heart of Inverness and from there we explore the true Highlands of Scotland, from Loch Ness to Culloden and the Moray Motor Museum at Elgin with the Clava Cairns along the way.
The routes are on some of the most challenging and rewarding roads in Scotland with their stunning scenery and a choice of routes to suit all, from meandering down to the famous Loch Ness for a boat trip to see if you can spy the monster or go back in time on the moving battlefield of Culloden. There is also a chance to visit the Moray Motor Museum or if you just want to relax, then you can spend the day in Inverness or at the hotel spa and pool.
