MG, the Chinese-owned British marque, has wheeled out its vision for a one-make race series at last weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Powered by a turbocharged version of the road-going MG3's 1.5 litre inline four, the MG3 Trophy Championship concept hit Goodwood's famous hillclimb track to show off its race-ready aero package, lightweight 17-inch alloys and improved braking hardware.

Developing 154kW of power and 259Nm of torque with the aid of a turbo, intercooler, higher-lift camshafts, special pistons and a revised ECU tune, the MG3 Trophy concept takes its power to the front wheels via a limited-slip differential.

The interior is also kitted out with a full roll cage, fire extinguisher, racing seat and quick-release steering wheel, with much of the interior panels stripped out to save weight.

Performance stats haven't been released, but it would be safe to assume that this track-ready MG3 is a fair whack faster than the road car's wimpy 10.9-second 0-100km/h time.

If all goes to plan, MG will put the MG3 Trophy into limited production for a one-make race series in 2015.

However don't expect to see one ever turn a wheel in anger in Australia. Right now, MG only sells the MG6 small sedan in this country.
