The Millington Challenge

SS-logoIn 2010, Roy decided that after roughly 35 years of involvement in motorsport it was time to put a 'little bit back'. This was achieved by sponsoring a special Class in the 9 round MSA British Asphalt Championship exclusively for Millington powered Ford Escorts of any type, whether it be a mk1 or a mk5.

Although having a Millington Diamond was not a requirement to enter, there were a great number of entries of Millington powered Escorts. Simon Mauger in his flying mk2 won the 2011

millington challengeMillington Escort Challenge with Pete Reynor in his mk2 coming second. Damian Cole/James Morgan clenched first overall in the Reis-Get Connected MSA Asphalt Championship with Simon Mauger/ Brian Cammack chasing the championship lead right until the last round coming in second overall. John Indri took third in the Millington powered Darrian T90 GTR. Highlights of every round have been exclusively covered by Wayne Goldring's Special Stage production and shown on Motors TV.

The Championship rounds are chosen from some of the favourite events in the UK, ranging from the Jim Clark National Rally, Tour of Epynt, or the Manx Trophy.


In early 2012 Millington's sponsored 2 separate championships, the Millington Escort challenge and the Millington Darrian Challenge exclusivly for Darrian sports cars. John Indri claimed the title of the Millington Darrian Challenge this year with Kevin and Charles Tappin winning the Millington Escort Challenge.

For the 2013 season, we are doing one challenge, covering all Escorts and Darrians named the 'Millington Rear Wheel Drive Challenge', 

Cars do not have to have a Millington engine or specifically be an Escort or Darrian to compete, the challenge is open for all cars in class's N1 through to B12.
 
We have recieved a large amount of interest in this new larger challenge. With previous triple Champion Damion Cole, running his new and nearly completed Millington powered Escort in the Millington Rear wheel drive challenge, it looks to be an excited season.
