Entries Invited for Le Mans Celebration Race to commemorate 1959 MG Car Club Entry
he MG Car Club is inviting entries for a Le Mans Celebration race at Oulton Park on May 9th 2009. Entries are for cars of a type and in a form that were raced up to 1965 – including prewar. All cars should be to FIA spec and on road tyres or “L” sections. The Le Mans Celebration Race is by invitation but if you wish to receive an application call Steve Carr at the MG Car Club Office on 01235 555552.
The race coincides with the publication of a book which records the MGCC North West Centres entries at Le Mans in 1959, 1960 1961. These were disguised Works entries after the MG Car company withdrew from Le Mans following the 1955 accident.
The occasion will be an opportunity for the personnel involved to gather at Oulton along with the actual MGA used at Le Sarthe. The first 25 entries for the race will receive copies of the book fully autographed at the presentation. Entries are sought from all makes including of course MG’s but they have to be of a type that raced at the classic long distance race in the period.
