pescaraproductions should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Would be nice if that Modern and Classic festival returned next year as its own meeting, would bump us up to possibly 6 mallory meetings. Last years despite being organised a bit last minute had some brilliant racing, especially the mini's last lap pass for the win in the best of British race.

Agreed. I raced in it and really enjoyed it, but the trouble was that Richard put it on himself and lost money on the event. I thought the grids were OK, but something like 15 cars across the day made the difference between a loss and breaking even. Just shows how difficult/ risky it is to put on club race meetings.

Welcome, Pescara.

This release from Richard Culverhouse (U.K. Motorsport) received last night....

"Ok, so its been a while since my last Newsletter but I have been working hard in the background trying to piece together a exciting season for you next year. Working on the success of the ‘Classic and Modern’ Motorsport Festival at Mallory Park in June I can announce that it will be repeated in 2018, on Sunday June 10th.

In addition to Mallory I am organising a similar event at Snetterton (200) on Saturday September 22nd. A whole range of races with special emphasis on ‘classic’ and ‘modern’ cars, bikes and karts. Ideal for small groups of cars as well. I had hoped to also have a similar event at Cadwell on July 21st but unfortunately I lost the date. However I do have the possibility of having a day at Cadwell on Saturday August 25th (Bank Holiday) In addition, I am trying to get a weekend at Anglesey combined with a similar group.

For those of you who have ‘classic’ cars I have also managed to get an exclusive deal with the VSCC to run at their Oulton Park meeting on Saturday May 18th and Donington on June 24th. They have promised me a 20 minute race provided I can get a good grid. So guys, it’s up to you, if you want to race at these two VSCC events then please let me know so I can gauge the interest.

And finally I hope to have two races at Donington on Sunday July 15th. Races for both ‘Classic’ and ‘modern’ cars.

So the line up is:

Saturday May 12th – Oulton Park – Classic only
Sunday June 10th – Mallory Park - Classic and Modern Motorsport Festival
Sunday June 24th – Donington Park – Classic only
Sunday July 15th – Donington Park – Classic and modern races
Saturday August 25th – Cadwell Park - Classic and Modern Motorsport Festival
Saturday September 22nd – Snetterton - Classic and Modern Motorsport Festival
Plus possible weekend at Anglesey.

So please, let me know your thoughts on Oulton Park and Donington or anything other ideas you might have."

By looking at Equipe GTS calendar along with MGCC Cockshoot Cup (who have both released dates), I've come up with the following so far for MGCC 2018-

07 April, Silverstone National

28/29 April, Brands Hatch Indy

02/03 June, Silverstone GP (MG Live!)

14/15 July, Donington (Incl Equipe GTS 3hr relay)

01 Sep, Oulton Park

I would also expect them to be at Snetterton at the end of September for the BMH 4hr relay, and the fact that the Morgan Challenge is scheduled there on 29th suggests 29/30th. The MSCC are usually an invited grid....

15th July at Donington is meant to be a Morgan Sports Car Club meeting.....

According to the MGCC magazine from a couple of days ago, they are waiting for confirmation of the MGLive date before releasing their schedule.

Thats brilliant to see it back i should really put up the footage i have of that meeting cos it was a major surprise that it was as good as it was, hopefully try and get it some exposure. Its nice to see folk from different clubs get together. I believe NSSCC arent going this year though.

31/1st March/April - Oulton Park
21/22nd April - Croft
26/27th May - Snetterton
16/17th June - Knockhill
7/8th July - Cadwell Park
25th/26th August - Croft

Yes, I saw that- unless it's MGCC Sat and MSCC Sun......

It'll all come out in the wash!

That’s great, thanks for posting those!

It confirms the 2 day meeting at Snetterton on 29/30 September, which will (I assume) include the BHM Relay on Sunday..... and I’m not away for once!

It also appears that the Donington meeting on July 14/15 is in conjunction with the Morgan SCC, the latter running their Challenge races on the Sunday.

I’ve been going through the meetings to compile a list by circuit. No surprise that Silverstone is in the lead with 12 meetings (for Classic / Historic cars) so far, but nothing for Castle Combe or Anglesey- although UKM are possibly negotiating something at the latter. However, now listed on the Castle Combe website is the Autumn Classic Historic Racing Festival, scheduled for Saturday October 6th, but no indication of which series will be there....

For completeness sake I'll also add in the 2018 calendar for the Equipe GTS and Equipe Pre '63 series

April 7th – Silverstone National. 40 minute pit stop race for 1 or 2 drivers

April 28th/29th – Brands Hatch Double Header. 2 x 30 minute sprint races and Saturday evening Paddock Party

May 12th – Oulton Park International circuit. 40 minute pit stop race for 1 or 2 drivers

June 2nd/3rd – Silverstone GP Circuit. 2 x 30 minute sprint races and Saturday Paddock Party

June 23rd – Brands Hatch. 40 minute pit stop race for 1 or 2 drivers

July 14th/15th – Donington. Saturday – Equipe 3 Hour Relay and Paddock Party. Sunday – 30 minute sprint race.

July 28th/29th – Zandvoort. 2 x 30 minute sprint races and Friday testing.

September 1st – Snetterton 300 circuit. 40 minute pit stop race for 1 or 2 drivers

October 6th – Silverstone finals. 40 minute pit stop race for 1 or 2 drivers

Glad to see a new series catering for pre-63 GTs. Unfortunately Carol's RAC TT race at Silverstone Classic has been the only other Pre-63 grid for the past couple of years (that I am aware of).

Thanks Sam. Carol (Spagg) started her Pre ‘63 series several years ago, as an answer to those with earlier cars outclassed by 1965 machinery. It worked well, but of course with series success came owners spending more money on early Cobras and E Types....... All my opinion, of course!

Mike, the VSCC have Castle Combe listed in their Newsletter dates for 6th Oct so presumably will have a race or two there.

On the subject of Mallory meetings, it would seem that BARC have an additional meeting there on the 5th August. The only content I've seen so far is the new, modern MINI endurance series and, of more historic interest, Classic FF1600.
