MG CAR CLUB RACING BULLETIN – MARCH 2009

MG Car Club Announces Half Price Incentive to Young Racers

Under 21 racers will benefit from a half-price race entry scheme designed to make racing more affordable for the cash strapped youth. Anyone under 21 on January 1 2009 will benefit from half price race entry fees at all MG Car Club race meetings in 2009.

The first MG Car Club race will be full price and the entrant/driver will receive a half price voucher against their next entry. Each subsequent entry will receive a similar half price voucher with the last race of the year being free, provided of course they have the voucher from their previous race.

Ron Gammons , Clerk of Course for MG Car Club said, “In 2008 we had a 17-year old winner of our MG Trophy Championship which has encouraged to provide this financial incentive to bring more youngsters into the sport. To race in our championships the minimum age is 16 years old provided they have passed their ARDS test."

The first 25 entries for the race will receive copies of the book fully autographed at the presentation.

Thunder Returns to Brands Hatch with EuroBoss and the MG Car Club

The event will host two races for the EuroBoss series which caters for F1, Champ cars and F3000 cars up to 2004 without a capacity limit. This should be a stunning spectacle on the Indy Circuit and the word is that the EurBoss regulars are very keen to get the outright lap record for the circuit back.

Races for EuroBoss are to take place on both days. In addition there is a very full racing programme including Porsche, Equipe GTS, Dunlop Motorsport News Championship and a number of exciting Championships specifically for MG's which will ensure almost nonstop action throughout each day.
