Less is more in Gp C

In a bid to strengthen grids, the Group C/GTP racing calendar has been pared to just four events in 2008 by new series organiser Charlie Agg. The cars will race at Spa in May, Le Mans in June, the Silverstone Classic in July and at Donington in early October.

“We’ve looked at every aspect of the series and our goal is to get really strong fields at all the events,” said Agg. “I’m intent on ensuring that the cars run in period specification and that driving standards are high.” Aside from Le Mans, each event will include a sprint race and a 90-minute endurance race.
