MG3 Cup race car joins MG Cup

The MG Car Club, MG Motor UK and SAIC Motor UK Technical Centre are jointly developing a new low cost race car based around the MG3.

SAIC Motor UK Technical Centre Interns have been building the concept car as their Internship Project and will be unveiling the car in the early part of 2019.

The concept behind the car is aimed at providing a low cost entry route into saloon racing with the budget for the project to convert a road going MG3 into a racer set at just £5,000.
