Revised format for GTs

There will be a new look to the Autosport three-hour race at Snetterton in June, with only pre-66 GT cars eligible. Since its revival by the HSCC the race has been dominated by Chevron B8s, but a new tie-up with the GT and Sports Car Cup means an exclusively GT grid for 2014.

The GTSCC cars will join the HSCC pre-66 GT field to create a 40-plus grid. Other GTSCC fixtures take place at Silverstone GP (May), Brands Hatch (June) and Portimão (October).

The sports cars will have a dedicated hour-long race at Snetterton. A new class will encourage pre-68 big-engined sports-racing cars to join the grid for this race and the Guards Trophy races at Thruxton (April), Silverstone GP (May) and Oulton Park (August). Early McLarens, Lolas and Ford GT40s will compete for a trophy named in memory of Bruce McLaren.
