Racing

MG Racing has been around for over 30 years and has been a staple of the Victorian motorsport landscape. MG Racing has had a long history of running as part of the CAMS state championships at Phillip Island, Sandown, Winton and in the past at Calder Park, in more recent times venturing to Mallala in South Australia and Wakefield Park in New South Wales.

In 2018 the series will compete for the 2018 MG Road Racing Championship across some of the biggest events in Victoria featuring 3x rounds of the CAMS Victorian State Championship, the Winton Festival of Speed and the always popular Sandown Historic which is in it’s 27th year.  Alongside these fantastic events the series will compete at the all new Tailem Bend circuit in South Australia as part of the Sporting Car Club of SA.

MG Racing has a unique multi class formula which also has a class weighting system to enable every competitor an equal chance of success. In 2018 our series features a variety of MG’s on track showcasing the heritage of the MG brand, from early cars like MG TC’s, through to the staple MG B as well as modern era cars like MG F’s, TF’s, ZR’s and ZT’s and some of the most significant cars in MG’s modern era are part of MG Racing.  We cater for cars of varying specifications, from CAMS Group S log booked ‘historic production sports cars’, through to people stepping up from club competition, to cars holding 2A and 2B sportscar log books.

MG Racing also allows by invitation some classic British sportscars that are a similar vein to our MG B’s, commonly we have Triumph TR6’s, TR7’s and on a lesser extent Austin Healey’s.

MG Racing works on the moto ‘Safety Fast’, this means close, fun, hard racing with an emphasis on non contact racing and gentlemanly sportsmanship. There is nothing more fun than jumping out of your car on Sunday and enjoying the series BBQ and chatting about how much fun we had!
