Derwent Motorsp should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
HRDC races

On many of the meetings scheduled for 2011, there are 2 races for the new categories run by Julius Thorogood/HRDC. I mentioned them to a friend who has a suitable car but we can find no website of details anywhere. How is JT going to recruit drivers if they can't contact him or is it invitation only?

I can't recall the categories but I think one is Oldies but Goldies. What's the Grand Touring Greats?

Julius is planning 2 categories - 'Touring Greats' and 'Grand Touring Greats'.

The first is for pre-60s touring cars along the lines of the Oldies but Goldies - effectively working to Goodwood St Mary's Trophy regs.

The Grand Touring Greats is for sub 1500cc 'period modified' GTs - along the lines of 2010's Fordwater Trophy. It includes the A-series Challenge for anything with an A-series engine - all cars to run on Dunlop L section tyres. Not sure if this is restricted to periods E and F (ie pre 66) or also goes to the end of the 60s.

The June race at MG Live will be a consolidated grid form both categories, which should be fun....

OBG is one

GT greats is pre '66 under 1500cc

Aimed at SPridget based, little Alfas and a host of Curiosities, Tornado Talisman being one, and of course Elites, GInetta G4's ( in FiA trim)

G4's not in FIA trim because of course one assumes 1500 pre cross flow Ford will be eligible.
Certainly were in the old HSCC PHRS races

1500's are not eligible, 997 homologated only for G4 ( HRS let 1500's run, and they're pretty quick )

basically JT wants to keep it homologated, or 1340 or less. to try and level it off. There aren't any GT's homologated with 1500's (that I know of) so its 997, 1200 and 1340's thay're actually pretty efficient engines so should be a match for an A series

I think Theres a set of club regs for A series up to 1380, so a 1275 frogeye yes. From my discussion with Julius the 1340 FOrd engine is welcome in say a Rochdale, but he doesn't wan't 1500's and up, which I understand, a 1500 G4 would wipe the board, likewise a 1650 Turner would be too quick.

JT tried the smaller capacity thing a few years back with Top Hat and it didn't get much support, most people where leaning toward V8's not 1300's, so I think this is a welcome move, to a potential gap in the market, it also will appeal to the likes of the ealier period cars, specials, pretty little Alfas which are largely 1300's,

Basically there'll be A series challenge, APp K and, My interpretation, a sensibly prepared club spec acceptability for non homologated cars like for example the Cannon GT and Rochdale Olympic.

All the races look to be with the MG Car Club for 2011 so if you look at their calendar you'll find out where these races will be.

They'll be on the Silverstone GP circuit in June.

Frog only homologated with 998 which is why there thin on the ground however the Goodwood Sprites, many of which are based on Frogeyes but built as Sebrings seem to use whatever size engine the owner chooses. Most obviously go for the 1275 and over bore to anything between 1293 and 1380 or maybe even 1460. Is there somewhere where you can get the a series challenge rules? Thanks James
