After an action-packed debut at a sun-drenched Donington Park, the MG Car Club heads to Kent, and Brands Hatch for an equally full grid for the second race meeting of the 2017 season on 29th and 30th April.
With a programme of over 24 races across two days, the MG Car Club’s Brands Hatch meeting offers a fantastic mix for both drivers and spectators as MGs from the 1930s through to the dawn of the millennium will take to the circuit in a packed schedule.
The Club is joined by the Equipe GTS, whose grids will be packed with the best-loved sports cars in the world, as the likes of Austin-Healey, Lotus and Triumph joining the MGs in this hard-fought series. With over 50 cars competing, the grid will be split into two groups, with both qualifying and the first race on Saturday and the final race on Sunday.
No MGCC race meeting would be complete though without the MG Trophy Championship. Donington saw 33 cars, including ten newcomers take to the track. The first race of the season set the tone for those to come as Ross Makar, Doug Cole and Graham Ross fought it out to take an early lead, and with just 00:00:300 separating them, Makar will be keen to keep what little advantage he has as we get to the half way mark of the race calendar.
The MGCC Iconic 50s Series also boasts its largest grid to date with a whopping 25 cars lining up on the start line.
With races from the Drayton Manor MG Metro Cup, Peter Best Insurance MG Cup, the Watt Electrical BVC8 Championship, and the Lackford Engineering Midget and Sprite Challenge, there’s no shortage of variety out on track. The club is also joined by the BARC SE Quaife Cannons Saloon and Tin Top Championships.
On Saturday, The Porsche Club Championship is also bringing a selection of Stuttgart’s finest which adds another element to this motorsport meeting.
The Club’s prestigious Mary Harris Trophy will see two races on Sunday featuring the stunning 1930s sports cars, the Triple M MGs in action, with just under 30 cars to appear on the grid. You will not find these fantastic cars in full flight anywhere else, turning the clock back almost ninety years.
As well as the action on track, the MGCC is also organising a display of member’s cars as well as offering MG and MGCC merchandise from the Club shop.
And, as with every MGCC race meeting, MG Car Club members can get their car out on track with the Club’s ever-popular lunch-time track parade.
