Historic support

Historic racing will feature at two of the biggest race meetings in Britain this season following confirmation that the Heritage Grand Touring Car Challenge will be a support race at the FIA WTCC and A1GP meetings at Brands Hatch.

The two headline dates are part of an impressive calendar for the Heritage series, which also takes in BTCC and F3/GT dates, covering Snetterton, Donington Park and Silverstone as well as the pair of high-profile dates at Brands Hatch. The seven-event schedule will conclude with a date at Spa-Francorchamps.

Jonathan Palmer, Chief Executive of MotorSport Vision said: “I always make a point of watching the races, basically because there is a great mix of historic cars being driven with real gusto. Seeing Astons mix with Mustangs, Minis and Anglias is brilliant.”

The HGTCC is for sports, saloon and GT cars from the 1960s and 1970s and ended the 2006 season with capacity grids and significant interest from potential series newcomers.
