Bold move to go to Portimao early in the year . Do you know what that might just work. Still waiting for F2 dates .

The HRDC's calendar shows that they are at Thruxton over the weekend of 6/7th June so that is likely to be the date of Thruxton's historic meeting . The same weekend as the HSCC Donington meeting . Hopefully the MRL HTCC series isn't going to clash with the HSCC Dunlop Saloon Car Cup .

Thanks for posting those Sam, saved me the effort!

Reduced number of events (3) for the two FiA championships, others being NC, and two stand alone Mini races- Donny and Silverstone.

Algarve in April? Will be interesting to see if competitors get offered free hotel rooms like when racing at the Classic. Not sure if all is well with the later meeting at the AIA, as a recent email from the Iberian Historic Endurance organiser was asking 'customers' to vote on whether they want to go back or change to a different date.....

Yes, I've seen that date as well, so you're probably reading that right.

A shame, that the Oldtimer GP is missing at the Masters Calender.

MEL supporting two ELMS rounds. That is a terrific tie-up, I hope it continues to grow. A Le Mans race would be wonderful.

Peter Auto Endurance Legends will be at LM Classic- that's the closest so far to the 'real' 24! Wouldn't be surprised if it happens in the next year or two...

Good to see the Test Day back.

Surprised about Nurburgring omission.

So the FIA championships have more non points scoring rounds than points scoring ones.

Probably down to the fact that not many people did all the rounds or most of them due to the nature of historics.

It's sadly a fact of life that we are all getting older. That means that the cost of racing starts to come second. Without new "young" blood the sport is going to struggle. Frankly chasing championships is for the young bloods, most racers want to win but the stress of a championship campaign is too wearing. I have been there and it was not as much fun as I'd hoped.

I suspect that reducing the FiA championships to 3 rounds from 7 will reduce Masters overheads- probably considerably! The Federation involvement will come at a cost..... Silverstone, Zandvoort and Spa have been popular with drivers in past seasons, so will hopefully have reasonable grids.

According to Classic Car Weekly today, MG Live! will be held on June 13th & 14th in 2020. It is the Club’s 90th anniversary as well.....

There’s more- HSCC are planning two sub-classes in 70s Road Sports for Sprites and Midgets of 1275 & 1498cc. To be sponsored by Peter May Engineering. Presume they will have to comply to same technical regs as other cars?

Yes, and seems from organisers calendars published so far that grids will be there one day or the other, but not both......
