WHAT'S RACING  (click on any image for a larger view)

Historic Formula 2

One step down from Formula 1, these racing machines are the most powerful single seaters from the 1970s after their contemporary F1 counterparts. Names such as Ronnie Peterson and Jacques Laffite, to name a couple, raced these cars.

Super Touring Cars

Recalling the BTCC's greatest era, the 1990s, when manufacturers employed the best drivers in the world. Hondas, Nissans, Vauxhalls, BMWs and Peugeots from tin top racing's halcyon days will all feature. Expect to see a few famous names on the grid.

Historic Road Sports

Cars from Lotus, Morgan and Alfa Romeo as well as many others compete in a battle for road-legal production Sports and GTs built and raced between 1947 and 1969. Extra points are awarded for driving the car to and from the circuit.

70s Road Sports

This series captures the essence of the 1970s with road-legal production and Sports GTs of the era competing for top honours. You can expect to see assorted Porsches, Jaguars and Lancias as well as a variety of other marques battling here.

Historic Touring Cars

This championship is for saloon cars that were in production before 1966. Mini Coopers, Ford Anglia, Lotus Cortinas and many other cars will form a packed grid of cars eclectic as they are exciting. Expect to see them sideways from time to time!

Guards Trophy

This event is for GT and Sportscars that raced internationally before 1966. Chevron B8s, Jaguar E-types, Lotus Elans and MGBs are only a handful of the models featured. Highly popular with the drivers this event is rarely anything other than full.

Pre ’80 Endurance Series

This category is for the sports –prototypes which inhabited the global sports car scene of the 1970s.

Historic Formula Ford

This championship is open to any Formula Ford 1600 car built and raced before 1972. With a complete lack of aerodynamics, much of the speed is down to driver ability. The result is some of the most spectacular driving in historic single seaters.

Classic Formula 3

Between 1971 and 1984 F3 was the ultimate proving ground for drivers including Ayrton Senna, Nelson Piquet and Jonathan Palmer to prove their single seater credentials. This series is a fitting tribute with Ralts, Chevrons and many other chassis.

Historic Formula 3

Between 1964 and 1970 these single seater F3 cars raced internationally in the UK and throughout Europe. During this period Emerson Fittipaldi, Carlos Pace and Sir Jackie Stewart progressed through the ranks and on to F1!

Historic Race of Champions (Derek Bell Trophy)

This series of races sees historic single seater F2 and F5000 machines from the late sixties and seventies out ton circuit. This series pays homage to a time in which Peter Gethin and Jody Scheckter were still trying to make the final step into F1.

Historic Formula Junior

This was an early proving ground for future stars; existing between 1958 and 1963 this series nurtured the talent of Jim Clark! Despite their age these classically modelled single seaters still provide one of the fullest grids on the historic scene.

Classic Racing Cars

Variety is the name of the game as a myriad of single seaters from the 1960s take to the track. Iconic Lotus and Brabham single seaters from the pre-slicks and wings era compete on a grid that is far flung from contemporary single make series.
