Which historic racing cars do we race?

Our series makes space for a rich variety of historic racing cars, which delivers some classic racing moments. The series has 3 classes A, C & D - detailed below. Our regulations also permit "other historic cars of similar performance and under 1500cc" to join us, at the series coordinators discretion. All cars must be constructed using technology and materials which were readily available pre-1974 in club motorsport.
