Fleet World Fleet Show: MG6 hot laps on offer with Jason Plato & Sam Tordoff

The MG KX Momentum Racing star and team mate Sam Tordoff will be doing a limited number of “hot laps” at the world-famous Silverstone circuit on Wednesday 24th April.

Plato drove the racing version of the MG6 GT to two victories in the first round of the 2013 Dunlop MSA British Touring Car Championship at Brands Hatch. Newcomer Tordoff had his maiden podium place when he clinched third place in the final race at the opening rounds.

MG will take seven of the newly launched diesel models to the show and the new model is bound to attract lots of interest. The MG6 DTi-TECH diesel has already won admirers from business users due to its low BiK figures and class-leading comfort features. 

The all-new 1.9 litre DTi-TECH diesel power train was designed specifically for the MG6. The latest stop-start, smart charging and variable-rate turbo charging technology is standard on all models to give MG performance with economy. With 350Nm of torque the MG6 diesels have the highest pulling power per pound of any saloon and hatchback in the UK market.

And the MG driving experience is completed with the MG6 chassis that was designed by engineers in Britain to make the most of British roads. 

Richard Bourton, MG's business & used car sales manager, said: ‘We are delighted to be out in force at the Fleet World Show with the new MG6 DTi-TECH and I'm very confident that the car will be received well.

‘It's a tremendous value-for-money package for fleet and business users plus the fact that the MG is fun to drive and drivers will have the kudos of being behind a car that stands out from the often bland competitors.’

At the Fleet Show, the MG6 will be part of a line-up of over 200 models from 21 manufacturers available to test both the Grand Prix and Stowe circuits at Silverstone as well as public roads.
