The Sportscar Vintage Racing Association's Director of Events, John McKnight, has announced that MG will be the feature marque for the 2014 Glenora Wine Cellars US Vintage Grand Prix, set for the weekend of September 5-7, 2014 at Watkins Glen.

MG will also be featured at the concurrent downtown Watkins Glen street festival, so the MG Vintage Racers group has designated the meeting as its "Focus Event" for 2014, with the all-MG Vintage Collier Cup race being run for the Governor's Cup.

The event will commemorate the 60th Anniversary fo the Collier Brothers Memorial Trophy race, established in 1954 for SCCA for MG race cars in memory of the MG racing Collier Brothers, Sam and Miles.  In 2004 at the 50th anniversary, 143 MG race cars took to the Watkins Glen Track. Activities are sponsored by both NEMGTR and NAMGAR at that event.

The awards for the Collier Cup race are:

  • Denver Cornett Jr. Trophy - First MG to take the checker flag
  • Jack Archibald "T" Cupy - First finishing production based T Series
  • Bucker Decker Cup - First finishing MGA
  • Bill Glanville Cup - First finishing MG Midget
  • Collier Cup - Awarded to a participating MG driver as voted by his or her fellow MG racers for best MG spirit
