Alan Morgan should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The Thruxton meeting is not an HSCC event but there will be one or two HSCC grids, possibly HFF and Guards Trophy.

That would explain the suggestion that MRL will be making an announcent regarding the meeting.....

Sounds like a proper 50th celebration, then!

There are some other dates floating about but I understand they are even more 'provisional'.
According to C&SC mag the Pom is above date and Formula Vintage are...

21-22 April Silverstone SPRING START!!!!

19 May Oulton Park

24 June Cadwell Park

11 August Mallory Oark

23 September Snetterton

So hopefully that is all correct.......

Yes I noticed those dates in the C&SC mag but they're not yet listed on the VSCC website or newsletter so I omitted them 'just in case'. They do look about right based on recent years so they probably have some insider information....

Yes, one would hope the dates had come from VSCC, and the journo hadn’t made them up!

This time no small formula cars, but more F1. Let's hope all the drivers are in tune with their machinery.....

I don't mind sharing, Mike! My birthday falls slap in the middle, so there's one day working up to it & one to get over it. Better start saving....

Just make it a treat, then! Never been, but have heard from other tenthers that a lot of time is devoted to parades and the like, so not wall to wall racing....

Location nice, though....

HSCC are proposing a special race at the Oulton Park Gold Cup in 2018, for Chevron B6 and B8 cars only. Should be quite a spectacle!

Info here- https://hscc.org.uk/chevron-b8-race-...park-gold-cup/

Peter Auto has come up with a new event, the Richard Mille-supported 'Rallye des Legendes', catering for 50 of the world's most beautiful cars & visiting a different region of France each year. The inaugural event will take place on 11-14 September 2018.

At the same time Peter Auto has confirmed that Chantilly Arts et Elegance will not take place in 2018, partially due to the rather crowded calendar around its regular early September date. Instead, it will move to a July date in 2019, thereafter taking place in odd-numbered years, alternating with Le Mans Classic.

Question- who gets to decide which are ‘50 of the world’s most beautiful cars’.... The date is around when Chantilly would usually be? (But clashing with Spa rather than Goody in 2018 for a change.)

And before anyone comments- the event is NOT a historic race meeting, so will not be on the calendar......

In this period of so called communication any one who claims is right. Even popular vote is vastly influenced. Better make your opinion by yourself

The Formula Junior Historic Racing Association, or FJHRA for short, has several ‘World Tour’ events and championships scheduled for 2018. The former commenced in 2016 to celebrate FJ’s Diamond Jubilee. Not all dates are known yet, but the continuing world tour has two regions listed- Baltic Sea Region and Europe Part 3.

Sector 8 Baltic Sea events (Curt Lincoln Trophy) will be-

2/3 June Lithuania

9/10 June Latvia

15-17 June Sweden

Sector 9 Europe Part 3 (Peter Arundell Trophy) is-

4-6 May Donington HF

26/27 May Zolder

20-22 July Silverstone Classic (2 grids)

The last marks the conclusion of the 3 year World Tour! No doubt will have a big turnout.....

There is one date not yet confirmed for the FIA Lurani Trophy, and the U.K. Championship dates are still to be published. The latter will include a combined grid double header at Spa during the 6hr weekend, however.

To get it all over in one hit, the pre season Motor Sport and Classic car themed show dates are as follows......

11-14 Jan. Autosport International, NEC.

07-11 Feb. Retromobile, Paris.

15-18 Feb. Historic Motorsport International, Excel Centre London.

23-25 Feb. Race Retro, Soneleigh.

There- no clashes.........
