MGA racer and NAMGAR member Jim Holody, from London, Ontario, was awarded the prestigious “MG Collier Cup” at this year’s Collier Cup MG race, part of SVRA’s “U.S. Vintage Grand Prix” at Watkins Glen, NY. The Collier Cup race is for MGs only, and includes cars from Pre-War MGs to MGBs.

SVRA has been running this all-MG race and awarding the Collier Cup, in memory and honor of the MG racing Collier brothers, since 1985! It is not won by the race winner, but rather is awarded to the MG driver in the race who best represents the “Spirit of MG Vintage Racing” in both car preparation and driver conduct on and off the track.

The winner is selected by a vote of the MG racers at the event. Jim later reflected on receiving it, “Receiving the Collier Cup was totally unexpected and rattled me for the rest of the podium presentations. I thanked all the MG drivers and commented on the significance of the Collier Cup and the Collier brothers to MG racing. I was proud to receive this award that was also won by Don Funke in this same MGA Twin Cam that he raced here in 1990.”

Jim was also honored to win the “Bucher-Decker Memorial Cup,” sponsored by NAMGAR, for being the first MGA overall in the race!
