|The MGA and BARC grew up together. The BARC boys started going to races in the mid 50's and by far the fanciest and sexiest sports car an average guy could buy was the MGA. It didn't hurt that local driver Bob Bucher and Sport Car guru Spankey Smith had one of the fastest MGA's anywhere. The only guys who could match them were also BARC members Sherm Decker (who was only 60 miles away) and Ted Rounds who lived in the area and owned a gas station where we could hang out. So that's how it started; our heroes raced MGA's and it wasn't long before we all owned one.|
We want this part to be the
unofficial site of record for racing MGA's. We'll publish
photo's of any car you can send us, along with any information about
the car. If you don't have the info, we'll ask our readers for it and
maybe get lucky.
Clik here to take a look at a bunch of racing MGA's that you might be able to give us some history on.

BMC figured that the US would be their key market for the MGA and they believed that winning on Sunday sold on Monday. So even though Sebring was held on Saturday, the factory took cars. Here's the history of the
