MR2 Championship

Founded in 2008, the MR2 Championship features huge grids of minimally modified cars, and continues to lead the way for those interested in affordable, competitive RWD club motorsport. Three classes cater for all generations, whilst respective minimum weights and Toyo control tyres help to level the playing field.


A: Mk1 - 1.6l 4AGE, 122bhp
B: Mk2 - 2.0l 3SGE, 158/172bhp
C: Mk3 (Roadster/MR-S) - 1ZZFE, 138bhp


Engines may only be prepared within the specifications laid down in Toyota's workshop manual. All engine internals must be standard or standard pattern parts and the factory ECU must be retained. Induction and exhaust systems are free (excluding manifolds).


Suspension is free but may not be adjustable, with the exception of anti-roll bars. Uprated dampers, lowered springs and polyurethane bushes may be used.


Brake disks must remain standard or standard pattern while brake pad material is free. Braided brake hoses may be used and ABS systems where fitted as standard may be retained.


Standard gearbox, gear ratios and final drive must be retained. Factory limited slip differentials may only be used on class C cars as these were standard equipment. No other class may use an LSD.


There are typically 14-18 rounds per season, spread across six to eight double or triple-header race weekends.


Club racing membership is just £95 for 12 months, season registration is £155, and double-header weekend entry fees (qualifying and 2 x 15min races) are typically between £290 and £420 depending on the circuit. Eligible cars are available secondhand from just £4000.
