GCCheddaris should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
According to the BARC website the latest additions to the programme are the Mini Sevens and Mini Miglias .

Apparently the HSCC races appear to be being run on the Saturday with the Historic F2 , Classic F3 etc forming a Formula Libre race . Not sure why they didn't just have a Derek Bell Trophy race ?

Historic Formula Ford and Super Tourers have double headers while the Guards Trophy has a 40 minute race although in the past the GTs and Sports Racers have had seperate races.

Any more news on entrants as it's only 4 weks away.
I'm taking in both days with my two boys. First time at the circuit which started my passion off since 2003.

I believe HTCC/Tony Dron has a race on Sat and Sun?

The silence could be explained by an announcement just received (by email) from HSCC thus- ‘due to lack of entries received’ they have had to cancel the Super Touring race at the event.

They are trying to organise two short ‘high speed demonstrations’ of Supertourers if enough people are still prepared to take their cars.....

I did look at flying back to do open wheel race . Such a shame we are in Lithuania . I really wanted to support Pat and all the team down there . Not completely ruled out . Watch this space .

Great shame the Super Touring races have been cancelled although not a complete surprise given that the first two rounds at Donington and Brands last year only garnered fourteen and nine starters respectively while the first round at Donington this year barely attracted a dozen entries . Even the Silverstone Classic race although it attracted over forty entries , fewer than half were Super Tourers .

Fingers crossed the rest of the entries will be healthy and that Murray and Nige put on a great show !

Now I'm in front of a PC, here's the actual HSCC statement-

Dear Competitor

Unfortunately, owing to the lack of entries received, we have had to cancel the race for Super Touring Cars at the above meeting. This is extremely disappointing for both the HSCC as organisers of the Series and Thruxton, as promoter of the event.

For those who did enter a full entry fee refund will be given.

However, Thruxton, is very keen to have some sort of Super Touring Car presence at the meeting, so is organising two ten minute high speed demonstration sessions to allow some cars to at least be shown, and we are asking for your help in supporting this.

So, if you can, please bring your car along and put on a show, it would be much appreciated and there will be no cost- just some free track time.

Please let us know, by return, if you are able to attend or not and passes and a timetable will be sent to you.

Kind Regards


Grahame White
CEO

Well that is a great shame.

It seems a lot of people are only interested in entering cars in marquee events like Silverstone Classic and Goodwood MM.

However the ST's are not cheap to run so it's understandable that their owners need to be careful.

Here's hoping the MRL races are well supported so that we have some decent saloon car action to look forward to.

Entry lists are online for the Motor Racing Legends races and I'm pleased to say that there are over twenty entries in the HTCC/Tony Dron race and over thirty in the RAC Woodcote/Stirling Moss Trophy race .

Glad to see decent entries for those races. I hope the rest of the grids are the same.
Shame about the Supertourers but I fear the revived series has peaked.

Not to sure about peaked, I've yet to see anything like a full grid at any event I've attended but I do know from comments made by John Cleland that the cars are very expensive to keep in full race fettle but then he comes from Peebles! Patrick Watts no longer seems to campaign the Ultron Peugot either, he seems to favour other vehicles to enter these days.

I really wanted to be there, but it was not to be. Watched the BTCC from there last weekend and the circuit is looking in pristine condition. Hope it's a great weekend.
