The Morgan Sports Car Club (MSCC) Speed Championship is organised and administered by the MSCC in accordance with the rules of the RAC Motor Sports Association. Speed events consist of sprints and hillclimbs. These are all about getting from the start to the finish of a defined tarmac course in a time quicker than anyone else. Sprinting and hillclimbing therefore differs significantly from racing in that there are no other cars in close proximity to you on the track.
Created in 1985 by a group of Morgan racing enthusiasts, the Morgan Challenge is a one-make race series for Morgan sports cars. Since its formation it has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the mostsuccessful one-make race series. This year it celebrates its 30th birthday so some of the races will have a distinct party feel in the Morgan paddock.
From 1958 to 1963 Formula Junior replaced the motorcycle engined 500 cc F3 cars as the stepping-stone to Formula 1. It was the brainchild of Italian Count ‘Johnny’ Lurani and provided for 1.0 or 1.1 litre production engines, and gearboxes in mini Grand Prix chassis, in its short 6 years, the design span covered the major progression of racing car evolution.
