    MG considering BTCC return in 2011

    MG could be back in the British Touring Car Championship next year according to Motorsport News. The now Chinese owned manufacturer is currently talking to teams about running two cars next year.

    "We have had approaches on many different levels of motorsport – from people in grassroots series to established BTCC teams – who want to race the MG6," said MG Motor UK marketing director Guy Jones to Motorsport News.

    The MG6 model has not been released yet, pictured below, but is according to MG very much suitable for the new NGTC regulations.

    "The MG6 is very versatile and already runs an engine similar to the forthcoming NGTC touring car unit so it perfectly suits the BTCC blueprint," said Jones.

    There is no official decision yet, but MG is serious about entering the series according to Jones.

    "There is no concrete plan at the moment but we are at the table with interested parties and a BTCC programme will undoubtedly be seriously considered," said Jones.
