25/02/2011 - Following the
successful launch of its Trackday Trophy novice racing series in
2010, Club MSV is pleased to announce that it will be starting a
new race series - the Club MSV Team Trophy - in 2011.
The Team Trophy is designed to provide 2010 Trackday Trophy
competitors with the next step in their motorsport career, as well

opportunity to go racing.
It will cater for production and production-based saloons,
hatchbacks and sports cars manufactured post 1994, operating four
power-to-weight classes up to 200bhp/ton. Pre-1994 vehicles
belonging to previous or current Trackday Trophy competitors will
also be eligible to compete.

friendly and informal atmosphere.

Club MSV earlier this year with the idea of starting a series to
cater for post-1994 saloons and sports cars. It seemed like the
ideal opportunity to combine their objective with our growing
demand for a graduate series to the Trackday Trophy."
The inaugural Team Trophy will comprise of three events at the new
Snetterton 300 circuit in May, Donington Park in August and Brands
Hatch in October. The series will follow the same one-day format as
the Trackday Trophy, including a 45 minute race featuring mandatory
pit-stops and driver swaps, although drivers are not required to be
"We've created what we believe will be an exciting, informal and
cost-effective new challenge for club racers," Baker added. "We
look forward to seeing many familiar faces from this and last
year's Trackday Trophy and welcoming some new competitors as
