MG3S could get one-make series with MG Car Club

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

The MG Car Club is con­sid­er­ing in­tro­duc­ing a new series for the MG3 in 2019 and has tweaked the reg­u­la­tions to the MG Cup for this year to al­low the model to race.

Since the car was first launched in 2011 none have raced with the club but, now that some of the MG3S are be­gin­ning to ap­pear in the sec­ond-hand mar­ket, the idea of a one-make series for them is be­ing ex­plored.

The MGCC’S Pete Macwa­ters said: “We’re look­ing at a pos­si­ble stand­alone cham­pi­onship for 2019 to give us a new cham­pi­onship – our last was the MG Tro­phy. We are try­ing to get a bit of in­ter­est and see how they get on in the MG Cup. We want to see the MG3 rac­ing.”

For­mer X Fac­tor con­tes­tant Sam Cal­la­han is set to race an MG3 this year. His car was at the Au­tosport In­ter­na­tional show ear­lier this month in a bid to gen­er­ate in­ter­est.

It is one of at least two MG3S set to race this year that have been built by Knight In­dus­tries.
