Lot 412: MG B Competition Roadster

The Beaulieu Sale, Bonhams (7 September 2013)

This 1971 MGB roadster was professionally prepared by BLC Motorsport for the MG Car Club's 'BCV8' series. It is fitted with a 1,860cc blueprinted race engine incorporating a ported cylinder head, high-lift camshaft, roller rockers and a lightened flywheel, while other noteworthy features include a Peco race exhaust, K&N air filter, Kenlowe electric fan and electronic ignition. The suspension and braking systems have been fully rebuilt, the former incorporating new negative-camber wishbones and Neoprene bushes while the latter boasts drilled and ventilated discs. The steering, stub axes and clutch are new, as are the Minilite-style 15x8 alloy wheels, which are shod with Kumho 225x50x15 racing tyres. Very light in weight, the bodywork features Sebring-style wings with enclosed headlights, quick-release bonnet, boot lid and front skirt in glassfibre, and a works-style hardtop. Driver security and protection comes courtesy of an Aleybars six-point roll cage, Cobra race seat, Sabelt four-point harness and a dual pull-fire extinguisher. Representing a relatively cheap and affordable entry into club racing, the car is offered with sundry restoration invoices and Swansea V5 document.
