MG to boost numbers

Mg are planning a late deal to run 4 cars in the BTCC in 2002. The updated 2001 spec cars will be sold to a privateer team. WSR ae still going to have to build their own ZS cars for this years championship, and have been using the lola cars as a model to design the 2002 challengers on.

Do you mean there'll be 4 works cars, or just 2, with the two private ones?

The story I read said that MG had been approached by two privately funded drivers as opposed to a privateer team. This would make sense for WSR to run the cars in a egg sport type way.

My only concern would be to ensure that the drivers do in fact have enough funds to complete the season and a sizeable margin on top to cover all eventualities. Without wishing to be too cynical, racing drivers do tend to have eyes bigger than their pockets and don't always have the money when it comes down to it - I speak from direct experience of working with drivers!

I am sure that MG will investigate this before commiting, as they don't want to end up in an embarrasing situation either.

I believe one car has more or less got a driver and sponsors, but I would wait for official confirmation.

With no disrespect Eddie as I have enjoyed the forum I am not prepared to have an individual keep personally attacking my comments. As soon as "the King" is removed from the forum I will continue..

Hmmm...fanatastic news if true. I really hope there will be 4 MG's in 2002.

Guy, I have asked the forum hosts to look into this for you. Personally I feel it would be a great loss and a shame to lose you as a member of the forum.

Stephen.

I agree more people within the sport the better.

You have to learn in life to not always openly express youre disslike to someone, I for one should know. Just bite you tongue or your keyboard and kep your gob shut.
