The AR Motorsport Morgan Challenge is a UK one-make championship for racing Morgans and is supported by the Morgan Motor Company and Yokohama tyres. The series is multi-class and caters for V8s, the older 4-cylinder cars and the more modern V6 Roadsters. Known for well-supported grids and close racing and there are plans for a 10-race championship in 2016. This is a full-race car built from a bare chassis by Richard Thorne Classic Cars in 2008, with great attention to weight saving to full class B specification for the Aero Racing Morgan Challenge. Class B allows considerable modifications from the standard Roadster Lightweight, including 4-wheel disc brakes vented at the front, 7"x 16" Image wheels with 225/50VR16 Yokoharma tyres, modified 3 litre Ford V6, with bespoke ECU, race cams, and big bore manifolds giving circa 280BHP at 7000RPM. This successful car has won two Morgan Challenge Races outright, beating all the class A cars in the process (the only class B Roadster to do so) and will be highly competitive again in the right hands. Regularly campaigned by her current owner for the past 3 seasons in this championship, the car was a frequent points scorer and very competitive, but fortuitously has never had an accident or suffered any damage. It was resprayed three years ago and was recently fitted with a new back axle. There is a file with the car with lots of invoices detailing race-prep and maintenance and in addition, lots of photos, race results and set-up information. This well-sorted racing Morgan has always been maintained with no expense spared ensuring that it's fast and reliable. We understand that it's great fun to drive with neutral handling, turns in well and inspires confidence in the first couple of laps when it all gets a bit 'cosy'.Recently serviced and with new pads all round, this desirable, competitive Morgan is ready to race, or alternatively with its two Tillet race seats and full harnesses, would make a fast and exciting, value for money track-day car. Just a turn of the key with no fuss is all that's needed to start the Ford V6 which sounds amazing but is well below the 105db restrictions. Don't delay- the season's just round the corner.
