Sweet, they needed something to boost the Fall Historics race. The Mitty is huge and the paddock space is maxed out but the fall race is mostly locals. Good to see new stuff and some great cars.

Also for those interested in the USA series, the Masters GP guys also are running those weekends with mostly DFV F1 cars, 66-85 3L cars.

Euro 2020 draft regs
https://www.mastershistoricracing.co...L%20DRAFT.pdf/

USA 2020 final regs
https://www.mastershistoricracing.co...s%20FINAL.pdf/

As discussed before, while not particularly ground breaking there are some not so welcoming changes made to European series, which make me prefer the USA version now. And this is weird: 4.3.7 "Daytona Prototypes will be classified in the appropriate LMP2 class."

Well they were balanced, ok vaguely balanced-ish, to the P2s after the merger so that seems fair to get more cars in a class and give a guy a place to race. I would guess most people have the later DP chassis with the diffusers over early models. There are more than a few running in HSR and are all Vette types

Exactly. Knowing Masters, they will write their regs to attract those cars running in HSR. The more cars on the grid, the more cash coming in....

They're running a couple overlapping events. Thankfully one is my local track this fall, no, I'm not at all counting the days and camping for it. Usually a day trip but this year HSR, Masters Endurance and Masters GP in one weekend.

Well those who own these cars so ship them around the world. And if you own a DP and want to race at a European track what better way to go? Still the same people they'd be attracting in the US.

Yes, all they’ve done is add US eligible DPs to the eligibility list for Europe. Makes total sense and no doubt at the request of owners who may be considering an event or two this side of the pond.....

courageous should be qualifying in the top 5 on the gridcourageous should be qualifying in the top 5 on the grid
It never happened IIRC, but during Britcar's heyday in the early '10s there was a plan to bring DPs over (Nobody said Tucker wasn't ambitious )

So maybe there are a couple that ended up in Europe in anticipation of this?
