The series continues to enjoy growth year on year with some of the largest grids and mix of Morgans that we've ever seen. There has been continued support by the traditional V8 and four cylinder powered cars plus the more modern V6 powered Roadsters and the superb new four cylinder +4SS and the new BabyDoll.

The series is open to all 4-wheeled Morgans and the championship is divided into several classes, encompassing both standard and modified cars, to encourage entries from as broad a spectrum of cars as possible.The increase in support for the 4 cylinder classes has encouraged more of these cars to enter.

It is well known for being friendly, welcoming and supportive of both new and seasoned competitors.

Philip Tisdall leads Sharlie Goddard

Philip Tisdall 2013 Aero Racing Morgan Challenge Championship Winner leading in his Class C +8 leads runner-up Sharlie Goddard.

Grids throughout the 2013 season were well supported with an average of 30 cars and it is acknowledged to be one of the most successful one-make race series.

There are 10 championship rounds with the best 8 to count towards the Championship positions. Points are awarded to class winners, second, third and so on, with an extra point being awarded for the fastest lap in each class. This enables a quick and consistent driver from any class to become overall champion and win the coveted Peter Collins Tray at the end of the season. It also ensures that, although the overall race winner is likely to come from the highly modified and very quick cars in class A or B, the battles for class honours throughout the field should be just as hotly contested.

There are around 60 registered competitors in the series: several have been racing in the Challenge since it began in 1985 and some are new drivers, either novices to the sport or who have migrated from other forms of motor sport or other race series. Some competitors drive to the circuit in their race cars on the day of the event, some overnight in a local B&B and others bring their cars on trailers behind motor homes. The variety of competitors is wide, both in age and occupations and we also currently have four lady drivers. The only qualifications you will need are to be enthusiastic and sporting; commitment ranges from fiercely competitive to laid-back. The Morgan racing fraternity is one of the most friendly race series around and if anyone has a problem with their car there is always a helping hand.
