The Super Touring Car Challenge 2018 dates revealed

23 November 2017

The Super Touring Car Challenge in 2018 will begin next year at the Donington Historic Festival in early May, covering 12 races at six high-profile race meetings.

The Super Touring Car Challenge is home to the 2-litre Super Touring Cars of the 1990s and pre-1990 Group A cars, while a new class was added this year for pre-2006 FIA S2000 and invited BTC cars.

The season will open at the Donington Historic Festival in early May followed by races at Thruxton, Brands Hatch GP and the Oulton Park Gold Cup as well as the Silverstone Classic before concluding at Knockhill in September.

The Historic Sports Car Club (HSCC) has recently taken over the race management and administration of the Super Touring Car Challenge while series founders, headed by Dave Jarman, focus on promotion of the series.

The full calendar is:
4-6 May: Donington Historic Festival
2/3 June: Thruxton
30 June/1 July: Legends of Brands Hatch Super Prix (GP circuit)
20-22 July: Silverstone Classic (GP circuit)
25-27 August: Oulton Park Gold Cup
15/16 September: Knockhill

Grahame White, chief executive of the HSCC, said: “This is an excellent calendar for the Super Touring Car Challenge. We hope to see healthy grids across all the dates and there is good interest in the new class for pre-2006 cars.”
