Regulations and Classes
From the 2020 season, the regulations were completely revised. This is in recognition of the ever-growing range of Morgan cars produced and still being made today.
The scoring system is now based upon target times specific to each car and driver combination. This uses vehicle parameters (power, mass, drag coefficient and tyre friction coefficient) and circuit information deduced from satellite image analysis to simulate a run of any particular course for each entrant vehicle.
The power is calculated from the harmonic mean BHP of the engine at the flywheel. Northampton Motorsport have been appointed as the MSCC reference rolling road and opportunities will be provided for contenders to have power runs on the Northampton Motorsport rolling road. The MSCC Race and Speed series are planning to share 2 days in March, the 5th and the 12th to ensure that we can fill the days at Northampton Motorsport.
The mass, defined as the Kerbside weight, will be validated for all entered cars once per season. Kerbside weight is defined as the weight of the car, including driver (in race overalls, helmet, shoes and gloves), in the condition in which it is presented to the start-line ready for competitive timed runs. It is assumed the car will be carrying 10 litres of fuel.
Each competitor must nominate a tyre category – List 1a, List 1b or List 1c on their entry form when registering for the championship. The tyre category determines the type of tyre the competitor is permitted to run during the year.
For 2021 there are 12 classes plus a number of subclasses that cars can be entered into. These are determined by the original model and the level of modifications made. See the REGULATIONS for more details.
