Robertson returns for Festival of Speed

Entries continue to roll in for the Winton Festival of Speed as MG Racing builds towards a strong field once again.

Returning from a hiatus while setting up retirement is Jim Robertson in his MG Midget Special, the car well known with a big history in Australia. Robertson’s car was originally built by Simon Arama for the Australian Sportscar Champion in 1983 and has recently acquired its COD from CAMS to be eligible for Group R.  Over the past 10 seasons it has been campaigned by Robertson and has a stellar reliability record, “I have done 49 race weekends in the car and just 2x DNF’s and 1x DNS in that time which for a historic car is quite a good result, combined being an MG it’s even better!” commented Robertson.

Robertson plans to do double duties in MG Racing as well as the Group R Sportscar field as a way to try and advertise the car which is currently for sale, “I would love to pass it on to someone else so its on the market, trailer, spares, etc. and I just don’t have the time to commit but I love MG Racing so will continue as much as I can”.

Further to the list Tony Vollebregt has entered in his MG ZR having run Sandown at the start of the year he is keen to get back on track at Winton as Jane in her MG B will also join the series. Entries are expected to continue over the next week as we build to one of the best events of the season.
