We are pleased to announce that from 2024 the championship will be known as the CSCC MG Trophy Championship, racing exclusively with the Classic Sports Car Club (CSCC).

The CSCC are a well established and financially secure race organiser, now in their 20th year. They currently host 12 race series and will have raced at 16 meetings by the end of this year. By December 2023 they will have raced at Silverstone GP, Snetterton 300, Thruxton, Oulton Park, Brands Hatch, Anglesey, Donington, Mallory Park, Castle Combe, Croft, Daytona and Sebring! They have a history of offering a varied calendar each season. I have already indicated some of our preferred circuits we want to race at, for our 6 double headers in 2024.

They run 4 other series where saloons also race, the most relevant to our ZR’s are:- Co-ordSport Tin Tops, with WOSP New Millennium, Verum Builders Open series and Liqui Moly Slicks also suitable, depending on tyres. Your championship registration fee of £99 includes registration to any or all of the above. If you enter one of these races at the same round as CSCC MG Trophy, the second race will be half-priced.

We would continue with our current format of two 20min races, but will often benefit from a slightly longer qualifying session of 20 minutes. Race entry fees will typically be around £435.    

The CSCC emphasises fairness amongst their categories. We will race first, middle and last in the timetable, have the most and least desireable places in the paddock and should receive the garages once too. High driving standards are expected, with contact investigated.

We would have a sensible timetable with sensible time allowed between qually and race one and race one and race two. No more hanging around, like at Snetterton. To keep costs down we can decide to race on one day (or two). Starts are a mixture of rolling and standing, depending on the circuit.

We will be on a shared grid, with the CSCC Jaguar Championship. These classic cars deliver similar lap times to us, but will have a degree of separation, with a split start, giving either category a 10 to 20 second head start. I have spoken directly to the Jaguar representative, we share a similar aim and ethos. By having a shared grid, whilst we aim to increase the number of MGs we have no financial risk to the championship.

The club membership fee is £49 (MGCC was £60)

Each driver will get 4 tickets, with additional ones received with any extra races entered.

Multi-camera live streaming will be at 3 or 4 meetings per year, there is no additional charge for this.

Race trophies are presented on 1,4,7 basis.

A post meeting video similar to this :- will be available after most meetings.

Their end of season Dinner Dance and awards is a big event open to all series / championship drivers. Awards are presented at this function.
