Here is my MG Vintage Race Car





My 1978 MG Midget.
Another car I got a deal on. $1500 for an MG with an awesome paint job! Just put new big end bearings, rings, four used flat topped pistons in the bottom end. Topped it off with a rebuilt head from Speedway Classics. Even after the valve head spent some time bouncing around the combustion chamber, he was actually able to save the head!





1975 MG Midget 1500 Triumph Engine
1500 Triumph engine running with a large Exhaust leak before removal. This is the original engine the car came with when I bought it in Feb 2012. The car is going to be restored and is in the process of being dismantled hence the lack of seats, wings, hanging wiring etc.. The end goal is to fit a Rover Kseries engine and a Ford type 9 gearbox along with all the essential upgrades for a car of this age, but first it needs all the cancerous rust removed.





1963 Mk1 MG Midget
Initially, the Mk1 (GAN1) MG Midgets introduced in 1961 retained the drum brakes and 948cc A-series engine from the Frogeye Sprite, albeit in a slightly higher state of tune. But from Motor Show time in 1962 these cars were transformed when they received a 1098cc engine (giving the biggest incremental power increase of any modern Midget) and disc brakes. The car in this video clip is a later (GAN2 or 'Mk1.5') car which has been owned by the same family since 1973 and restored to near-original condition. Look out for the MGA coupe which makes an un-scripted appearance in the 6th minute.

MG Midget racing at Castle Combe. Nasty accident in qualifying but 3rd in class on the grid. Something bent on the car so a slightly wayward drive in the race. Highlights.

MG Metro 6R4 - Pure Sound [HD]
Subscribe if you liked the video :D Created for the short lived Group B race category, the 4WD mid engined MG 6R4 (6-cylinder, rally car, four-wheel-drive) Metro of 1984 was a world away from the best selling supermini to which it bore only a superficial cosmetic resemblance. The competition car effectively only shared the name of the production Metro as it featured a mid-mounted engine with four wheel drive transmission enclosed within a seam-welded tubular chassis. The development of this vehicle had been entrusted to Williams Grand Prix Engineering. The resulting car was shown to the world in May 1985. It was powered by a David Wood designed bespoke 3-litre V6 powerplant which used some of the engine architecture of the Cosworth DFV. It featured twin overhead camshafts and four valves per cylinder. The engine was a break from the norm, as it wasn't turbocharged as the majority of its competitors were. The engine was mounted back to front in the car, with the forward end of the engine facing the hatchback and the gearbox attached conventionally behind it and, therefore, in the middle of the vehicle. The four-wheel-drive was permanently engaged, and drove separate propshafts to the front and rear differentials. The rear differential was mounted on the side of the engine sump with one driveshaft running through the sump to the nearside rear wheel. Much of the outer bodywork was made of GRP, with the only exception being the roof panels (which were aluminium) and the steel doors. These were, however, concealed by plastic airboxes. Indeed, models now on show generally have stickers demonstrating where it is safe to push from when moving the vehicle, so as not to damage the bodywork. The 6R4 appeared in two guises. There was a so-called Clubman model which was the road going version which developed in the region of 250 bhp (186 kW), of which around 200 were made and sold to the public for £40,000 (the homologation version). A further 20 were taken and built to International specifications which had a recorded output of over 410 bhp (306 kW; 416 PS)
