MSVT Racing

This concept has now become a reality - check out www.trackdaytrophy.co.uk for more details.

Following an overwhelming number of responses to our initial news piece, we are pleased to announce that we will be taking the Club MSV Endurance Race Series concept to the next stage.

Having discussed the idea with a number of trackday drivers, potential competitors, MSA scrutineers and the MSVR team, we now have an initial outline for the series. However, at present nothing is set in stone so we are still open to suggestions!

Something that we feel that can sometimes get lost in competitive club racing is the fact that it is all about you, the competitor. Ultimately, the events are hosted for the drivers and therefore the ultimate goal for our series will be that all competitors have fun in taking part whether that is on the track or at the post race parties.

Classes and Honorary Winning Categories

We want to retain some of the competitive elements of racing with trophies for the winner of each of the four power to weight ratio classes. However, we also want to add a number of categories in order to reward teams for their efforts and add to the fun!

These could include but are not limited to:

  • Most sporting team
  • Against all odds trophy (team who have overcome the most hardship)
  • Best entry
  • Most bizarre entry
  • Best paint job
  • Dynamic duo award (for a team that has shown total cohesion and unity)
  • All the gear, no idea award
  • Driver of the day award
  • Support crew of the day (award for a support crew who have made a particular effort. This may also be awarded to a team that brings their own grid girls!)

We want to arrange some prizes for the winners of these categories. If you're involved in a company that is interested in offering a prize in exchange for sponsorship, please get in touch! MSVT will be offering track day vouchers and driver training as prizes.

The Races

Each meeting will take place on one day and will consist of a 30 minute practice / qualifying session followed by a 45 minute race. Races will be from a standing start and safe, clean passing will be strongly encouraged (particularly for the first lap). We will be holding driver briefings before each race to help instil gentlemanly driving etiquette in all competitors and there will be penalties as per the MSA regulations for any drivers who do not adhere to this code of conduct.

During the race, each car must conduct a mandatory two minute pit stop where driver changes will occur. Those racing alone must walk around the car before setting off for their second stint on track.

Each race will be approximately £299 per car inc vat - that's just £150 per driver!

Calendar

We are currently looking at the following calendar:

Brands Hatch   - March
Snetterton - June
Cadwell Park - August
Silverstone - October
Brands Hatch - November

Car Regulations

All cars must meet the standard MSA scrutineering requirements. For a guide on what you will need to do to your car, see our MSA scrutineering guide.

We already have an idea of what cars we want to see in this series and have therefore put together an eligible list of cars. However, this is not an exhaustive list! If you would like to enter something that is not on the list, please get in touch.

All competitors must self-certify the power of their cars. The power will need to be officially verified at one of several MSV approved rolling roads. Each car including one driver will be weighed on the day.

Cars must also comply with the following regulations:

• Meet the basic MSA standards for safety
• Be no more than 200 bhp per ton. (This may increase to 250bhp per ton, depending on the feedback we receive)
• Be a minimum weight of 750kg
• Have a standard exterior floor
• Have wheels no wider than 1inch more than the standard wheel.
• Slick tyres are not permitted.
• Turbo cars must be fitted with a restrictor plate as per the MSA Rally Car regulations. This is to ensure boost  consistency throughout the races.

It's time to get in touch!


We want to hear from everyone that would like to be involved in our new series.  Here are a number of ways you can be:

Competitors - we want to hear from anyone interested in entering so we can keep you posted with any news and updates.

Sponsors - if you can offer a good prize to potential winners, a discounted service or bespoke package for competitors then we want to hear from you. In exchange we can offer coverage on the MSVT website amongst others ideas we have in the pipeline. It's the perfect opportunity to get in touch with novice racers, trackday drivers and other petrol heads and we are also currently talking to some well established motoring publications about coverage of the series.

Rolling roads - we need a number of rolling roads across the country so if you have one, or know a reputable outfit - get in touch.

Spectators - as per any club race event, spectators and supporters will be more than welcome not just for the race but at the post-race parties as well!

You can contact us by email clubmsvracing@motorsportvision.co.uk or call 0843 453 3000.
