Aston Martin Owners Club

www.amoc.org

Not only has the AMOC got a full season of racing for Aston Martins, it is also the custodian of the UK-based Formula Junior Championship. Sadly, for the first time since the 1950s, the club has been unable to secure a suitable date for the St John Horsfall race meeting at Silverstone, which leaves a big gap in the club’s programme.

British Racing Drivers’ Club

www.brdc.co.uk

www.tourbritannia.com

As ever the BRDC’s historic programme will include the Historic Sportscar Championship for 1950s cars. But there is more in 2005, with the return of the International Historic Festival at Silverstone and the club also playing host to the exciting new Tour Britannia event in early September.

FIA

www.fia.com

Three championships form the core of historic racing organised under the wing of the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile. The European Challenge for Historic Touring Cars and the FIA Cup for Historic Grand Touring Cars have pan-European calendars along with the Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior cars.

Gentleman Drivers

www.historlcmotor-racingnews.co.uk

Carol Spagg’s twin series have a growing list of dedicated entrants wanting to race period cars in semi-endurance races. The Sports Endurance Races are open to a great array of production-based cars, while the Sports Racing Challenge caters for the more exotic sports and GT cars.

Grand Prix Masters/World Sportscar Masters

www.grandprIxmasters.org

With the GP Masters series for the earlier 3-litre F1 cars now firmly established, the organisation has acquired the former European Sports Prototype Trophy for Group 4 cars. Now the two series will share common dates.

Group C/GTP Racing

www.groupc-gtpracing.com

A real success story, the Group C/GTP movement is growing all the time as more and more drivers take the chance to race these 1980s cars. A real bonus for UK fans is three British dates in 2005.

Historic Grand Prix Cars Association

www.hgpca.com

The HGPCA remains the clear home for any pre-66 Grand Prix cars. Races are usually split at 1961, giving the older cars a chance of glory, while pre-war cars are also encouraged in the HGPCA’s pan-European schedule. A series of races for drum-braked sportscars adds depth to the organisation’s activities.

Historic Sports Car Club

www.hscc.org.uk

Unquestionably the club for affordable historic racing in the UK, the HSCC is riding high these days. A superb line-up of championships spanning sports, saloons and single-seaters offers sport for all and the result is race meetings crammed with entries and close racing.

International Supersports Cup

www.orwell-supersportscup.com

Although managed from Germany, the Supersports Cup continues to be popular with British owners of sports-prototypes from the late 1960s and early ’70s. One British visit a year is not enough, but new UK representation for the series is a positive move.

Pre-war Sportscar Series

www.motorracinglegends.com

Building on the success of its Le Mans support race, the Motor Racing Legends organisation has developed a series for pre-war sportscars and enjoyed a good debut season in 2004. The 2005 schedule includes a first UK race at Donington in early May.

Thoroughbred Grand Prix

www.tgp-f1.com

Right at the pinnacle of historic racing, the TGP series offers supremely competitive racing for 3-litre Formula One cars right through to 1985. Big grids of cars in stunning period livery are the norm and the series rightly draws the fans wherever it goes. Both Silverstone and Brands Hatch GP are on the 2005 schedule.

Top Hat Racing

www.tophatracing.co.uk

Created to provide good value racing for as wide a range of cars as possible, the Top Hat race portfolio now encompasses events for saloons, sportscars and GT cars from the 1950s, the ’60s and even into the ’70s. Guest slots at several major European meetings and longer races are key to the Top Hat ethos.

Vintage Sports Car Club

www.vscc.co.uk

Unrivalled as the provider of competitive motorsport for predominantly pre-war cars, the VSCC is as strong as ever after passing its 70th birthday in 2004. Race meetings, hillclimbs, sprints and trials are all part of what makes the VSCC so successful and so vital to the sport in Britain.
