MG has been chosen to support the Spa-Francorchamp motor racing circuit in Belgium with the provision of its latest MG models. The circuit, venue for the Belgian Grand Prix and one of the longest and fastest on the Formula One calendar, and famous for the daunting Eau Rouge corner, has selected four MG ZS' as rescue vehicles, which will be sited around the circuit on race days, and an MG ZT-T as its track safety car.
The MG ZS 120 and ZT-T 190 models will be at home on the race track, both featuring sports suspension, race-bred aerodynamics and powerful engines. The ZS is also the basis for MG Sport and Racing's entry in the British Touring Car Championship. All vehicles have been fitted with specialist fire and safety features including public address equipment, flashing lights, siren and also carry medical first aid, extinguishers, flags and essential tools.
Xavier Farcy, managing director of MG Rover Belux said: "With Spa circuit's status changing to a permanent racetrack, having previously used parts of the public roads, the Spa management sought an automotive partner and we're obviously delighted to have been chosen.
"The association with this premier motor racing circuit, at a time when the MG range is expanding and itself taking a competitive role in world motorsport, is great news."
