I'd better dig-out my old Yellow Pages & Wella Hair Care stickers then!

It would be really nice to get to that if I can - one of the two current British circuits I've never been to, the other being Croft.

Dear Competitor,

The HSCC is pleased to announce the new name and sponsor for what was the Super Touring Car Challenge.
We are delighted to have the welcome support of Dunlop Tyres, a name that has long been synonymous with the British Saloon and latterly Touring Car Championship.
Founders Dave Jarman and Jonny Westbrook are happy as they feel the new title better reflects the nature of the series and their true intentions when they established the Super Touring Car Series.
The HSCC will be at the Autosport Show from Thursday 10th January – Sunday 13th January, they are in Hall 4 in front of the Silverstone Auctions Stand. Both Andrew Warner and Andy Dee-Crowne (HSCC CEO) will be on hand to answer any questions you may have.

The all important dates:

18th – 19th May Silverstone International Trophy (GP Circuit)

7th – 8th June Donington Park (Masters Historic Festival)

29th – 30th June Legends of Brands Hatch (GP Circuit)

24th – 26th August Oulton Park Gold Cup (International Circuit)

All rounds will have a 20 minute qualifying session and 2 x 20 minute races.

We do not have an invitation for the Silverstone Classic this year but we hope to be back for 2020.


EDIT- Masters show the dates for Donington as 8th/9th June, which makes more sense.....
Hi Mike,

I couldnt see the event on the Silverstone website for May? It says the 17th of June for the HSCC International Trophy (I think)

Donít be- we all get fooled by websites that arenít up to date!

The calendar that is accessible from the top of this Historic Racing Today forum is as up to date as any for Ďourí racing. Doesnít include any non historic stuff though. Click on any of the events listed and you go to the relevant thread!

Historic Motor Racing Gmbh have now announced the U2TC and Pre '63 calendars. Note that the tin tops are NOT at Silverstone Classic. Also interesting is that the admin for both will now be handled by Motor Racing Legends. From the email-

Dear HMR Drivers,

Happy New Year to one and all. We hope you had a good break and are looking forward to the 2019 season.

Forgive the end of year silence - a long holiday in South America and the fact that we have made some changes to the organisation has kept us from communicating earlier.

New Admin Arrangements for U2TC and Pre-'63GT: Having seen the way historic motor racing is changing, we thought it best to team up with a bigger organisation that could provide you with a more professional management of the series. We are therefor delighted to announce that Motor Racing Legends will be taking on the day-to-day administration of both series for us, and your main contact for entries and organisational questions will be with them.

We at HMR will still be here to help shape the regulations, the calendar and general direction of the two series. You are always welcome to contact us any time with comments or questions.

We think this will bring about a very positive change for you, while maintaining the friendly, family-like character of the series and the quality of car selection. In the case of Pre-í63 Ben Cussons will remain as head of the Selection Committee and oversee the technical regulations, and DK Engineering will continue their valuable to support of the series.

2019 Calendar
Donington Historic Festival 3-5 May (U2TC and Pre-í63 GT)
Thruxton Motorsport Celebration 1-2 June (U2TC only)
Silverstone Classic 26-28 July (RAC Tourist Trophy Pre-'63 GT only)
Spa Six Hours 27-29 September (U2TC only)
Algarve Classic Festival 1-3 November (U2TC and Pre-'63 GT)

Wherever possible U2TC will have two 40-minute races. Pre-'63 GT will have one hour races, except for the TT at Silverstone where the race will be 50 minutes.

Further details and entry forms will be coming soon! In the meantime write these dates in the diary. Your contact at Motor Racing Legends will be Gillian Carr, who you all know from our race meetings last year. Email Gillian'at'motorracinglegends.com.

Estoril Festival: We will be working with Diogo Ferrao of Race Ready organising races for pre-1975 Sports Cars and Formula 1 cars up to 1985 at the Estoril Classics meeting on 11-13 October. Both these races have attracted sponsorship and in the case of the F1 cars, substantial start money will be paid to all competitors. In the case of the sports cars, the first 20 competitors to enter will be paid start money. Contact us at HMR at this email address or the phone number below for regulations and entry forms for these two races.

We look forward to an exciting and successful season under these new arrangements.

Interesting indeed.

Looks like MRL are moving into the "Masters" style business model. Albeit they are no doubt being paid to do the organising.

I was seated next to Duncan Wís business partner (from memory- thatís how I think he described himself) at the Jag Challenge do, and appears they have another side to the business running motoring events, like for instance the LR anniversary do at Gaydon (I think) last year. And of course they now run the racing side of Donington HF, and I believe the Thruxton Revival this year as well. I see them taking over admin of Carolís series as a positive move, but whether the U2TC grid numbers improve- thatís another question!

Yes, I agree it is positive. Also I concur, the advent of seriously quick Lotus Cortinas (as opposed to simply very quick) has had the expected result on entries.
