*Expertly prepared ready to race car
*Good racing history
*1950cc race engine


Built using an early MG B as a base, this 'pull' door handle car, with its narrow transmission tunnel, has been very thoroughly prepared for classic racing to pre-1965 specifications with a photographic build record from MG Motorsport. Its specification includes an aluminium alloy fuel tank with electric pump and a carbon fibre race seat. Its fully plumbed Lifeline extinguisher system, full roll cage with door bars and full harness seat belt are all in date until February 2022. Performance and race measurement are taken care of by a Racelogic computer system. The engine has been race built to 1,950cc and is in very good order (under 10 hours running), with a Weber carburettor fitted and cooling is augmented by an electric radiator fan. Benefitting from current and previous FIA HTP papers, the car has been certified by the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust. Originally a left-hand-drive German market car, the MG B has been converted to right-hand-drive. The car has been raced extensively, including in the 2011 Classic Festival in Zolder, and in the HSCC Guards Trophy at Silverstone. A proven classic racer, the MG B has very bodywork and is strikingly finished in sky blue with a removable white hardtop.
