Big-engined sports-racing cars from the 1960s will return to Oulton Park in August as an invited class within the Guards Trophy race at the Gold Cup meeting.
The HSCC is running a pilot race to gauge support on August 29/30 and is hoping to attract Lotus 30s, McLaren M1s and Lola T70 Spyders, where they will go up against Chevron B8s. The Guards Trophy field will again be split across two races, giving the GT cars a separate event.
“I can remember some great races with these cars in the ’60s. It’s a long time since they have raced at Oulton Park,” said the HSCC’s Grahame White.
