MR2 championship - get involved

New to Racing? - Regulations - Entry Forms

I've never raced before - what qualifications do I need?

In order to enter the MR2 Championship you must obtain a "Go Racing" pack from the Motor Sport Association (MSA) which contains a license application form, introductory DVD and a copy of the Competitors Yearbook. You'll then need to qualify for a National B Race License, for which you'll be required to undergo a half days training at one of the Association of Racing Drivers’ Schools (ARDS). There are two parts to the exam - a written test where you will need to demonstrate a knowledge of track safety procedures, race day etiquette and flags, and a practical test where you will be assessed on your ability to drive around a circuit on the racing line, hitting entry points, apexes and exits. Finally, you'll need a basic medical examination.

Once qualified you'll be able to participate in most national club level races and attend test days.

Do I need any experience of trackdays?

No experience is required to start racing, although some time spent familiarising yourself with both car and circuit would be extremely beneficial. Don't expect to find yourself at the front of the grid first time out - take it easy and learn the ropes from others around you. Consider getting some professional tuition on a trackday where the instructor can sit with you in the car, and also attending a test day where you can practise overtaking and being overtaken!

Where can I get an MR2 race car from?

You can choose to prepare your own car or have it done professionally for piece of mind. Rogue Motorsport can supply you with most required parts (even the car!), and can prepare as little or as much of your race car build as you wish. See the Services page for more details.

Second-hand MR2 Championship race cars come up for sale occasionally, and are generally very good value for money. As a rule of thumb, the better placed the car has been in it's races the higher the cost. Bare in mind though that the technical regulations keep the cars fairly even, so an underperforming car may just have had a less skilful driver!

Finally, if you don't want the hassle of preparing, maintaining and transporting your own race car then there are options to hire one for individual races or the whole season. See the Services page for information.
