The outright ranks have been bolstered by Robin Bailey and reigning 2017 Champion Phil Chester in their MG B GT V8’s class while Rodney Gibb will be back in his ZT V8 and hoping for a strong weekend after his Sandown troubles. Guaranteeing at least 4 outright V8’s on the grid for the weekend, in other Open class news the return of former champion Andrew Howell in the familiar MG ZR Judd endurance race car joins Paul Vernall in his MG ZR Turbo while Vince Gucciardo will remain in his MG TF LE500 for round 2 and making his debut is Barry Pritchett in the TF Cup.
The modern class see’s Chris Gidney (ZR) and Sean Herlihy (MGF) as the sole representatives, while the historic class has a strong field of no less than 7x MG B’s with Mike Wood and Trevor Dunford in their B GT V8’s leading the charge, and stalwart Peter Rose in his Roadster leading a pack that are hunting behind with David Anderson, Henk Zwartaveen, rookie Darren Souter and making their debut for the year we see Rodger Chapman in his B Roadster as well.
