Super Touring expands

The growing race series for Super Touring Cars of the 1990s will run alongside the modern BTCC this summer, with two races for the HSCC-run category on the Oulton Park support bill on June 7/8.

Former BTCC stars Patrick Watts and John Cleland are due to be among a strong grid for the high-profile event.

The Super Touring Trophy schedule is Thruxton (April 19/20), Oulton Park (June 7/8), Brands Hatch Super Prix (July 12/13), Silverstone Classic (July 25-27) and Oulton Park Gold Cup (August 24/25).

“We are delighted to be running a full championship for the Super Touring cars in 2014,” said the HSCC’s Grahame White. “The signs are that the championship is going to be very popular indeed, with both competitors and fans.”
