MG for Le Mans 24 hrs race

MG will be returning to the race track next year to take part in the Le Mans 24 Hours race.

MG UK has confirmed that it will be sponsoring Team RLR Motorsport, which is currently taking part in the Le Mans Series. This Lancashire-based Team RLR is competing with an MG Lola EX265, which was an ex-MG works racing car and the only MG now racing at this level. The deal will see MG Motor UK engineers having some input into future development of the car but, more importantly, could mean some of the ideas from the racing circuit could be incorporated into future MG road cars.

Guy Jones, MG Motor UK sales and marketing director, said the MG brand was synonymous with motor sport and the deal would be good for both businesses.

“Ever since we started this project we wanted to get back into motor sport in a cost effective manner so to sponsor a privateer team which is racing an MG is perfect,” he said. “We are not in a position to have our own racing team at the moment, so to be involved with RLR gives us a high-profile MG racing presents is the best way forward.

“Now we have two vehicles – the MG6 and the MG6 Magnette – we need to raise the profile of the brand and the best way is to get into motor sport.” Mr Jones said he believed there were areas of the racing car that MG engineers could help develop, adding that it was a two-way street and ideas from the world of racing could well be adopted on future MG models made at Longbridge. Nick Reynolds, Team RLR principal, said: “We have one of the best prepared teams in the Le Mans Series, and the support from MG will ensure that we can be even more competitive both on and off the track throughout the 2011 Le Mans Series season and beyond.” The MG Lola was designed, built and funded by MG as a works racing car, competing between 2003 and 2008. In 2005 and 2006 it won its class in the Le Mans 24 Hours race.

It is powered by a 4.0-litre V8 engine developing around 500bhp and has a top speed of 180 miles per hour.

First MG6 heads for the dealers

Around thirty dealers came to MG Birmingham on the 14th April to pick up their first MG6s. After a short presentation by Guy Jones, sales and marketing director said, that the long-awaited MG6 sporting hatchback has finally taken to the road, and it’s a car which will put a smile on the face of MG enthusiasts.

This first new MG in 16 years lives up to the marque’s true sporting heritage, and comes in at a price to beat the competition. Before taking to the road, Guy Jones announced the unexpectedly low price for the range as the company has decided to “take the hit” on VAT by keeping it at the pre-increase rate of 17.5 per cent for the first three months of sales. So Prices will start at £15,495 for the entry-level S model, £16,995 for the SE and £18,995 for the top-of-the-range TSE.

Those prices mean the car is cheaper than its main competitor, the Ford Focus, yet it is larger in size, falling between the Focus and Mondeo. “MG is back and back to stay,” said Mr Jones. This is a true MG.
