2018 Historic race dates and club calendar thread

That time of year again. Had to de-ice the windscreen yesterday, and wearing shorts rather than jeans is becoming questionable...

Please add any dates or club calendars you are aware of, so they can be added to the HRT calendar, which several have told me is a valuable resource...

Peter M has already added two of the meetings he's entering , but another he may be considering is the Algarve Classic in October. No idea what series will be racing there, but I'm guessing more of the same. The event will be held a week earlier than this year, October 19th to 21st.

Peter Auto announced their 2018 Calendar recently to existing competitors_

6-8 April Barcelona. (Espiritu de Montjuic, previously the home of Masters HR.)

18-20 May. Spa Classic.

8-10 June. Dijon GP de l'Age d'Or. (No GpC)

6-8 July. Le Mans Classic. Will include race for GpC.

31 Aug- 2 Sept. Dix Mille Tours du Castellet. (Paul Ricard.)

28-30 Sept. Hungaroring Classic. (No GpC) This is dependent on enough interest / advance deposits!

26-28 Oct. Imola Classic. (Looking forward to revisiting the backstreet pizza place and best Calzone ever. Hope it's still there...)

gary396 should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Mike, a couple of provisional (but likely) VSCC dates

Pomeroy Trophy (Silverstone) - Sat 24th Feb

VSCC Formula Vintage Round 1 - Silverstone 21st / 22nd April - previously known as the Spring Start

There are some other dates floating about but I understand they are even more 'provisional'.

Goodwood Revival is 'provisional' at Sept 7th to 9th, and Spa 6hrs follows a week later as usual- 14th to 16th. If PA dates are as suggested that means no clashes! As Revival is unlikely to be on my radar September is looking quite civilised......

BTW the PA Barcelona meeting in April is subject to the area being 'stable' politically. We were advised when trucking through Catalunya recently not to stop for the night there, as petty crime was rife at that time. Fingers crossed its all sorted soon, as it's a great place to start the season. You never know, Britney may even have ferries running and be willing to take freight bookings! Or maybe that's asking too much....

For those fancying a trip to trip to the Nurburgring next summer but thinking the August 'Oldtimer' is now too commercial, the 'Nurburgring Classic' will be held June 15-17th. It was held for the first time this year to celebrate the circuit's 90th anniversary.

As part of the event, there will be a 3hr 'ADAC Eifelrennen' race taking place for FHR and Youngtimer cars. Not sure if on the GP track or the Nordschleife, but would put money on the former.....

Although have nothing concrete either way, I'm guessing HSCC Silverstone International meeting will be same weekend, which will be a shame if correct!

Peter Auto have confirmed that there will be no visit to Hungary in 2018, and this is the final calendar....

https://peterauto.peter.fr/en/2018-series-calendar/


Interesting that drivers of any GpC cars wanting to compete in the LMC race must do two qualifying races beforehand. Looks like this is targeting possible USA entries as well as any other newcomers, hence the tie-up with HSR over there.....

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!

Mike - slightly different according to VSCC press release today - 24th June now sees a return to Donington for the club not Cadwell. Cadwell now 22nd July. So maybe C&SC did jump the gun!
Gary

Excerpts from VSCC email that I've just received:

2017 Octane Club of the Year, the Vintage Sports Car Club is delighted to announce that they will return to Donington Park on Sunday 24 June for an action-packed day of historic motorsport......

.....The Vintage Sports-Car Club will celebrate the 80th anniversary of its first stand-alone race meeting, which was held at Donington Park on 23 April 1938, with a Formula Vintage Historic Festival befitting the occasion.

.....The Formula Vintage Historic Festival at Donington Park in June will complement the 2018 Formula Vintage Season which will have rounds at:

Silverstone - 21/22 April 2018
Oulton Park - 19 May 2018
Cadwell Park - 22 July 2018

After my pessimistic post on the Goodwood thread I'm pleased to see Thruxton potentially returning to the HSCC fold . Glad to see the meeting is being held later in the year , although Mrs Cheddaris and I camped at Thruxton for the Truck meeting on the corresponding weekend this season and the weather was Curate's Egg to say the least !

Hopefully a full 50th anniversary meeting!
