Scammonden Hillclimb @ Scammonden Dam
May 20 all-day

The MG Car Club Speed Championship enters it’s 31st season in 2018; 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:-

The 2018 calendar will include links to event regs and entry forms.
News and views are shared via competitors email list, our on-line discussion forum and a facebook group.

Autotest1

Autotests are one of the most popular competitive events organised by the Club’s Centres and Registers. The Club’s major autotest meeting is the annual California Cup held at the Silverstone International Race Meeting which also includes the prestigious BMC Trophy for the Inter-Centre competition.

An autotest, or driving test as they used to be called, consists of a series of timed manoeuvrability tests set out on hard-standing or grass.Cars run singly and are timed with penalties applied for touching pylons, failing to stop astride lines or other driver errors.Most MG Car Club autotests have classes for front and rear wheel drive cars and, of course, classes and awards for all MG models.

Drivers do not have to have competition licences. Autotests have the minimum of regulations and are thus popular and informal events.
