Photo for NAMGAR Classes (Updated October 2016)

A class is composed of one or more cars. Factory manufactured car classes are:

 

  • 1500 - Wire Wheels
  • 1500 - Non-Wire Wheels
  • 1600 - Wire Wheels
  • 1600 - Non-Wire Wheels
  • 1600 Mk II
  • Twin Cam
  • Deluxe
  • Coupe
  • Magnette  (ZA, ZB, Farina, MkIII, MkIV)
  • Variant – defined as an Elva Courier, TVR or any vehicle with either an MGA chassis or originally powered by an MGA engine.

To be eligible for placement in any of the above Factory manufactured classes, the car must retain its original engine or have been fitted with a replacement B series engine.

Additional NAMGAR car classes are:

Altered

This car class consists of vehicles from any factory manufactured class that no longer retain their original engine, nor a replacement B series engine, resulting in the car not falling into its factory manufactured car class. No vehicle in the Altered car class will progress to the Premier Class.

Premier

This car class consists of vehicles in any factory manufactured car class (as listed above except for Altered) which wins in class in the car show at a National GT. Upon winning its class, the vehicle must then compete in the Premier Class for five years. If it wins the Premier Class within the five year period, it shall be shown in the Premier Emeritus Class for the balance of the five year period. At the end of the five year period, the car may remain in Premier Emeritus or return to its factory manufactured car class at the next National GT car show. If the vehicle places first in its class a second time, it would then be eligible to compete for a second Premier award.

Premier Emeritus

This car class consists of Premier cars as outlined above as well as any car so designated by the NAMGAR Chairman or Vice Chairman. There is no NAMGAR award issued in this class as it is a non-voting class.

MGB

This car class consists of all MGBs and is open to non-NAMGAR attendees. Even though this is a voted class and the winner receives a pewter award, no vehicle in the MGB car class will progress to the Premier Class. This class is offered during the GT at the discretion of the Host Committee and is not required.

Other British

This car class consists of any British-manufactured car not identified above and is open to non-NAMGAR attendees. Even though this is a voted class and the winner receives a pewter award, no vehicle in the Other British car class will progress to the Premier Class. This class is offered during the GT at the discretion of the Host Committee and is not required.

Preservation

This car class recognizes those cars that the owners feel are "original".  Cars in this class are not eligible for NAMGAR class awards, Premier or Premier Emeritus; it is not a voted class.

To qualify for any awards given at a National GT, the registrant must be a NAMGAR member.

NAMGAR may split any class as necessary once a minimum of 20 cars is reached within that class.  It is customary to subdivide the class by wire wheel and non-wire wheel.

Likewise, the Host Committee may expand the MGB and Other British Class should the number of entries warrant a split class or classes.
