Description:

Possibly to most significant MG B race car that was not directly used by the works department.

222 WAE was built to works specification and campaigned relentlessly from 1964 to 1970 by Roy Ashford on behalf of the Bristol MG dealership Windmill & Lewis with great success.

During the period of 1964 to 1971 the pairing of 222 WAE and Roy Ashford were to prove to be one of the most prolific award winners for the marque in those early years. Remarkably from 1967 onwards the partnership nearly always picked up a top three placing.

Raced with great success by Terry Osbourne during his long term ownership of 222 WAE, winning the BCV8 Championship in 1978 and 1979 and setting records at Castle Combe and Wiscombe Hill climb.

A multiple veteran of the Goodwood Revival, racing in the 2019 Fordwater Trophy.

Restored in its current ownership, the MG Motorsport engine only has one race on it since its rebuild.

An ideal entry for the Tour Auto, Le Mans Classic, Goodwood, Gentleman Drivers, GTSCC Equipe GTS and so much more. There is arguably no better value way to competitively race in a car with such period history and eligible for so much as 222 WAE.
