Modern engines now allowed in CSCC Special Saloons and Modsports

The CSCC Special Saloons and Modsports rules and regulations have gone broadly unchanged since 2012. Many of the original pre-1994 cars and drivers have joined us, together with new cars built to these regulations. The cars remain a crowd favourite, with grid sizes ebbing and flowing over the past eight seasons, depending on the calendar, driver funds and whether these bespoke, unique cars are broken or awaiting parts!
Costs to the club and competitors have steadily increased over this time, both in terms of circuit charges but also cost and availability of parts. The CSCC remains committed to this superb, slick-shod series, but must find a way of increasing average grid sizes. Suggestions of how to do this has actually taken place over many years, with feedback from Dave Smith, comments taken from the Special Saloon community, active driver surveys and between Series Representative Ricky Parker-Morris and the CSCC office.

Full 2020 regulations will follow, but the two main changes are:
1. New, separate classes and overall winner for pre-1994 cars running technology and engines from a later period. This will keep the look of the grid correct, but permit newer engines from cars or motorbikes. The series actually already has a number of original cars racing with newer Chevy LS and Honda VTEC engines, where owners have removed the expensive original engines for safe keeping. We have previously turned away otherwise correct cars such as Mini’s and Imps running bike engines and Escort mk1s and 2s with Millington, Duratec and Honda S2000 engines alike, these can now be welcomed. Classes are proposed as follows:

Classic Engine Group:
Class CA – over 6000cc and all forced induction engines
Class CB – 2101cc to 6000cc
Class CC – 1501cc to 2100cc
Class CD – 1151cc to 1500cc
Class CE – up to 1150cc

Modern Engine Group:
Class MA – over 2301cc and all forced induction engines
Class MB – 1401cc to 2300cc
Class MC – up to 1400cc
Class T – Taster

2. Many drivers have asked for more than four rounds per season, with less triple headers and racing on a single day. Anticipating that the changes above should make costs more sustainable for the club and its members, the provisional calendar is likely to be:
April 18th or 19th Cadwell Park
May 8th or 9th Brands Hatch Indy
July 25th or 26th Thruxton (special race format, more on this later)
September 26th or 27th Donington National
November 1st Mallory Park
