Classic Racing Car Series gets strong 2018 calendar
The Historic Sports Car Club has re-affirmed its commitment to the Classic Racing Car Series, with a re-work of car eligibility and an attractive calendar of races for the coming season.
For the this year the focus will return to the category’s origins as a series for racing cars from the era before wings and slicks changed the look of single-seater racing. Cars from the 1960s right up to 1971 are eligible, while the series is also open to cars from Formula 1, Formula 2, Formula 3, Formula Atlantic, Formula Junior and Historic Formula Ford. In some cases, the CRC races offer drivers with Formula Juniors and Formula Fords a second chance to race over the weekend.
A well-supported drivers’ meeting late in 2017 was the catalyst for a re-worked package for this season, with six events including the Oulton Park Gold Cup meeting. In addition, drivers with 1600cc Formula 2 or Formula Libre cars have a chance to race at Thruxton during the circuit’s 50th anniversary race meeting on June 2/3.
“Our Classic Racing Car series has been running for more than 20 years now and it is home to a wonderful array of period single seaters,” said HSCC CEO Grahame White. “We hope that the 2018 calendar will continue to attract good grids of these lovely cars.”
