Cool Facts About the Formula 1 MGF Race Car
MGF Cup racing in cars like the Formula 1 MGF Race Car didn’t properly begin until two years after the MGF was initially founded in 1996. The MGF Cup was, under the guidance of the British Racing Drivers’ Club (BRDC), launched in support of British Formula 3, British GT and the British Grand Prix in 1998 and 1999.
One of the owners of the original MGF Cup cars from 1998 is David Coulthard - although sadly, not to be confused with the British F1 champion of the same name. From this, in 2003, David, known as the ‘Yorkshire Racer’ established Red Bill Racing, a grass roots offshoot of the MGF Cup that has a sizeable following in the North of England.
