The MG Car Club assisted by Mayflower plc and MG Sport & Racing Limited have joined forces to ensure more MG circuit action during 2003.

The Mayflower MG Trophy will consist of three classes -- MG TF Cup, MGF Trophy and MG ZR, which will be contested over a total of 11 rounds on some of the UK's premier circuits and for the first for 2003 the series will visit the famous Spa Francorchamps, Belgium. A 'Driver of the Day' will be awarded at each round and the highest points scorer across all three classes will be crowned 2003 Champion.

A new initiative for the series will be the 'Arrive and Drive' element for the MG ZR Class whereby a fleet of cars are being prepared by MG Sport & Racing and run by a professional racing team. Competitively priced packages are available and include race entry, insurance, your own mechanic, pit crew, tyres, fuel and all services. You race prepared car will also be delivered to the circuit. Charges will vary according to the number of races entered and competitor's own sponsorship opportunities.

A recent test of the 2003 race prepared MG ZR at Mallory Park produced some very encouraging results with the 2003 spec car lapping two and a half seconds quicker than the 2002 model.

The Championship will also be attracting the occasional guest drives from MG Sport & Racing's XPower team. <pre> Provisional dates:-
