MG Vintage Racers - Top Three Honors for 2010

MGVR Group PhotoThe MG Vintage Racers designated VARAC’s Vintage Racing Festival at Mosport, Ontario, this June as their “Focus Event” for 2010. Attracted by this world class track, special MG races at the event, and the camaraderie of the MG racing community, 46 MG racers showed up to compete with MGs from MGTC’s to MGB-V8’s, in both the regular VARAC classes, and a special all MG race.

This was complimented by both MGVR and VARAC parties and honors. MGVR presents three special awards at their annual Focus Event. The deserving recipients for this year were:

MGVR “Spirit Award”

The MGVR "Spirit Award to David Holmes. The MG racers at the track vote by their peers as best representing the “Spirit of MG Vintage Racing”. David is a very enthusiastic MGA racer from Ontario, and shares the track with his son Evan who races a MG Midget.
