MG Car Club presents the British Motor Heritage Classic 4 Hour Relay Race

30th August 2016

The MG Car Club is pleased to announce that it will once again be hosting the annual BMH classic 4 hour relay race at the Snetterton 200 circuit on Sunday 2nd October.


Over the past 12 years, the classic endurance race has become very popular amongst competitors, with the event open to vehicles from all marques – not just MGs. Teams can be of one marque or a mixture of manufacturers.

Only 26 teams can enter with each one consisting of three to six drivers and an allocated garage. Cars that enter are not allowed to lap faster than 1 minute 20 seconds, to control and limit performance differential. There are both Scratch and Handicap results, with awards in capacity classes decided by the organisers and dependent on entries. The Club will reinforce the sensible and clean driving it promotes throughout all of its motorsport activities so that everybody enjoys the race.

The entry fee for each team is just £875, and that can be split between six drivers, prior to September 2nd . After this date, the fee rises to £975. Team registrations are £200 and are open now to enable team managers to organise their entries. Qualifying for the race will begin at 11:30am on Sunday 2nd October, with the race starting at 2pm.

With a truly brilliant atmosphere every year, the Club is seeking drivers from all motoring marques to step forward and represent their Club for a chance to win the Club Team Shield award.

MG Car Club Competitions Secretary John Hutchison said: “We’re delighted to be holding the BMH 4 hour relay race at Snetterton once again, and we’re looking to build on the success of recent years.

“The race we organise is very unique and affordable for all vehicles that wish to enter – whether that’s three people or even six in each team. It’s a great day out, with a friendly atmosphere all around the circuit.”

Those who would like to take part but lack fellow competitors should contact John Hutchison, who will endeavour to assist with collating team entries. For more information regarding the 4 hour relay race at Snetteron, and to apply through invitation, please contact John Hutchison on 01235 849738 or email
