No need to register. Tickets can be bought on the gate. It is an informal day, just turn up, park and enjoy the day.
Basic data can be found on the Donington site http://www.donington-park.co.uk/events/ ... 095/#event
More information will come out nearer the day via the MG Car Club website and I will post it on here when it comes out.

Hi keith
Is there any infield parking for us? It would be better and more interesting to be together certainly prior to circuit laps if there are any!

Sadly, it has been many years since Donington has offered infield parking for the club.
I will enquire through the main club but I don't expect there to be any this year. There has not been a separate MG area set up either for some time.
For the circuit laps, cars meet up at the race assembly area prior to going around the track

Sadly no infield parking is arranged and the paddock area will be full of race cars.

The infield is still not fully prepared and I suspect they don't want to put on the security to operate the infield tunnel like they do for Donington Historic and other large events.

I suggest that people head towards the high lighted area on the picture and hopefully we can get the MGs parking together if the rest of the visitors start parking closer to the main entrance first. I will be there early so will get the flag up to 'stake our claim'

Some large grids building up for the event.

The Trophy race has 30 cars registered so far, with 28 in the Peter Best Challenge, 21 in the Cockshoot Cup and '48' in the Equipe GTS. A couple of races are not filling up so fast but looks like a good days racing will be had.

It will be good to see a couple of LE500s and 3 MGFs competing in the Cockshoot Cup.

The time table is attached along with the paddock plan & entries list.
Should be some very interesting racing going on with the grid sizes in some of the races.

It was a good day out with some very close and exciting racing :thumbsu:

A great sunny day but chilled down rapidly though when the wind picked up late afternoon.

I did see you in the distance Colin but you were on the opposite side of the track to me.
