BELGIUM: Racing circuit chooses MG support cars
MG has been chosen to support the Spa motor racing circuit in Belgium with the provision of its latest models. The circuit, one of the longest and fastest on the Formula 1 calendar, has selected four ZS's as rescue vehicles, which will be sited around the circuit on race days and a ZT-T as its track safety car.
The ZS 120 and ZT-T 190 models all feature sports suspension, race-bred aerodynamics and powerful engines. The ZS is also the basis for the company'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."
