Motor Sport Magazine is to be an associate sponsor of the HSCCs Derek Bell Trophy in 2004.
The race series for 1970s single-seaters that use slick tyres is one of the regular highlights of HSCC meetings, and will feature at all the club’s major events this season, including the high-profile Oulton Park Gold Cup and Brands Hatch Historic Superprix.
There is growing support for the Trophy, which caters for a large variety of period cars, from big Formula One and Formula 5000 machinery, through Formula Two and Formula Atlantic cars, and right down to Formula Ford 2000s. The rising grid numbers mean the HSCC is even considering running separate races for larger and smaller capacity cars.
Motor Sport will be encouraging racers and spectators to support the HSCC’s extensive 2004 programme, and will present end-of-year awards.
