Goodwood Revival confirm the Lavant Cup will see a full grid of MGB's celebrating the 60th anniversary of the iconic brand. The WSM MGB makes a fourth visit.

03-07-2022 Equipe Super Sprint At Donington . .

The Super Sprint event was trialled at Silverstone last season, and this year the East Midlands circuit hosted the format. Fifty-four cars qualified, then each driver had three 10-lapper heats and a final. Nick Matthews won the first final in his Healey 100/4, with the WSM 8th. Lee Atkins (TVR Grantura 1800S), and Jamie Boot (TVR Griffith) won the two faster contests, Boot especially earning his corn as the Healey 3000 of Mark Holmes was never much more than the 1.21s gap at the flag behind.

11-06-2022 MGB60 At MGLive . .

Equipe GTS staged a spectacular series of races at the home of British motor racing, and Sam Kirkpatrick won the blue riband MGB60 race from Tom Smith in second. The 40 minute race was blighted by two safety cars but didn't influence the outcome as Smith from fifth couldn't pressure the leader in to a mistake. The WSM qualified three rows off the back of the fifty-nine car grid, made up a few places in the opening laps, then developed an electrical fault directly after the driver change. Mick Darcey's MGB GT in Richard Woolmer's hands finished a handy 20th.

27-05-2022 WSM MGB At MGB60 . .

MGLive on June 11th features an MGB race to mark MGB60. Amongst the anticipated record breaking 60-car grid will be the WSM MGB in the hands of Tony and Paul for the 40 minute race.

21-05-2022 Oulton Park With Equipe GTS . .

The WSM MGB season kicked off at the 'home' circuit of Oulton Park, an hour from Liverpool docks. Some packed grids too for the 40 minute events on Saturday, with practice morning and race afternoon. Two red flags in morning practice put a spoke in everyones wheel, and a transponder hiccup didn't help the WSM cause. Way down in 27th, some 6 seconds slower than previous years, saw head scratching. The race didn't get much better, although embroiled with Richard Lawson's MGB for a good portion. A WSM spin after passing Lawson and catching a group ahead put paid to a worthwhile result, and retirement with a minor fuel malady ended the week-end 3 minutes early.

25-04-2022 WSM MGB At Revival In September . .

Billed as 'the worlds greatest historic motor race meeting', Goodwood are hosting a grid at the Revival to mark the 60th anniversary of the legendary MGB. In 2003, 2006 and 2010 the WSM was on the Fordwater grid, and in 2012 was on the record-setting MGCC grid of 58 cars at Silverstone to celebrate MGB50.

10-04-2022 Goodwood 79th Members In Spring Sunshine . .

Great to see three WSM's on the Westlake Trophy grid in the hands of Paul Woolmer, Jack Willmott and Ian Hulett. After Ben Colburn put the Lenham in the gravel on the second lap, it was the Lenham of Charles Rainford and Nick Padmore tussling for the lead until the Rochdale Olympic fell away with a problem. Hulett's set-up on 401 left a lot to be desired but he and Willmott finished less than a second apart after starting on row seven together.
