Classic car race meeting

The Sound MG Charity Classic Race Meeting
Sunday 17th May 2015, Manfeild, Feilding

The MG Car Club Wellington Centre and the MG Classic Racing Register once again welcomes participants in The Sound MG Charity Classic Motor Race meeting.

Like last year, this year’s event is a one day meeting focussing on classic sports and saloon cars. This year we welcome Historic single seaters and Sports Cars, The Formula Junior have promised a good field, we hope to have historic cars like the Triford and JRM MK 1 there as well.
We anticipate 4 or 5 races for each entrant, in an easy, relaxed and uncluttered day.

For the first time there will be races for Historic (Schedule K) racing and sports racing cars in the Charity Classic, and an invitation is extended to owners of these cars to enter and help ensure that this becomes a regular event for them. We have already had indications of entry from some very interesting and famous old race cars, including from the VCC. We especially want to see those older racers located in the lower North Island that may not have many opportunities to show their cars being driven in competition. We are also looking for a speed range of no more than 1m.20 at Manfeild, give or take a bit.

If you have a car that may be suitable, please contact Terry Collier on 021 238 9264 or Ron on 0274 439 969 04 654 8389.

For the races, cars will be divided primarily by speed, but also, as far as possible, with some regard as to type and age. Appendix 6, Schedule T&C (Thoroughbred and Classic) of the New Zealand Motorsport Manual indicates the type of vehicle that the organisers are seeking.

It is not often that classic sports and saloon cars have a full one day race meeting almost completely devoted to their vehicles. There will also be races for cars that fit into allcomers, run what you brung, so here is the opportunity to make a real day of it in the company of fellow enthusiasts. Remember that the governing philosophy of historic and classic Motorsport is one where vehicles from past eras are used in friendly rivalry and where winning is very much secondary to the sheer enjoyment of being involved!

It is also worth reminding entrants and others who support the meeting that this is a fairly unique occasion that combines a celebration of the core spirit of classic motor sport with the opportunity to do something positive for a worthy cause. There are also few amongst us who have not been touched in some way by the hazards of cancer. Entrants and pit crews etc are expected to contribute to the our Cancer collection by donating a large gold coin gate entry.

A free barbecue and informal "prize giving" will be held at the end of the days racing in the pit area and we hope all participants and volunteers can join us then.

Documentation and scrutineering audits will take place on Sunday 17th May from 8.00am to 10.00am at the circuit. As usual slick tyres will not be permitted for the Classic groups. Allcomers may run slicks. If not sure please ask.

There will also be Charity Rides for the public and no special group has been chosen this year. Drivers will be asked to assist with the lunch time rides.
