The capability of the MG Metro, Maestro and Montego is such that even in 2006, these
cars are being successfully campaigned in Motorsport events throughout the country. The MG 'M' GROUP will be following these
events and reporting on the highlights in our quarterly magazine - Forward!
which is sent to all club members.
The National Mobile Windscreens
Saloon Car Championship
Club member Jon Wills and Team 78 will be campaigning his MG
Maestro Turbo. The club would like to encourage members to go along and support this
campaign. Dates for 2011 are soon to be confirmed.
There are three classes in the championship featuring a diverse range of cars. In 2005
The MG Maestro Turbo held its own against some extremely fast 4WD race cars as well as a
Dunlop Rover Coupe Turbo and some Mini Coopers.
The Saloon Car Championship forms part of a whole day of racing at Castle Combe.
Classic 1960s and 1970s cars, older MGs, Formula Fords, Ferraris and many more can be seen
racing throughout the day.
Nearer the time we will be able to post details about the time of the Saloon Car Race
and details of how to meet other club members for a chat whilst waiting for the race.
This long-running championship is run by the MG Car Club
and features MG Metro 1300s and MG Metro Turbos which are now joined by the
Rover Metros and 100s. For full race regulations, click here: MG Metro Cup Website
