God preserve us form yet another one make race. I love the Classic for its diversity - hence watching a Mini take on, and beat ,a Mustang or a Cortina is wonderful. But watching one Mini beat 30 other Minis is not my idea of Classic racing.

You sometimes need to look further than just this forum, Will. It’s now on Silverstone Classic’s website.... https://www.silverstoneclassic.com/g...ring-cars-u2tc

Edit- No confirmation from u2tc themselves, so beware! But I’ve updated the intro on this thread in case...

Iím suspicious about that Classic page, as the news isnít repeated anywhere else. So donít take it as gospel.....

I agree. One make racing will be the death of historic racing if it takes hold like it has for modern cars. Even a grid of D types at Goodwood failed to impress. Having said that, a swarm of multi coloured minis crawling over each other is always a lot of fun so perhaps an exception can be allowed. Just this once mind.

Are the supertourers likely to feature in 2019? I know there was a lot of uncertainty around the whole "scene" in 2018 due to a number of factors, with dwindling grid numbers being the end result.

And they will feel much, much longer. Historically anomalous (if that matters? ) and falling into the same trap which has reduced much modern racing to the tame parody of racing which only two men and a dog watch.



If the organisers spent any time with the crowd, they would know that the biggest 'oohs' and 'aaahs ', applause and cheers often go to the bloke in his Mini who only came 6th , but who outbraked the same Mustang at the same spot on every lap.

It would have been nice to have had a different grid rather than a one make race that we can already kind of witness in the 'Big Engined' race or the U2tc if they do come.
Are there any HSCC grids that have not been to the classic in a while.Historic F3?

Given that Mini Miglia and Mini Se7en have been providing exciting racing for nearly as long as I've been watching motor sport I think a massive exception can be made for this "one make" race.
