Out of curiosity, is the race an addition to the timetable, or replacing another grid?

Nothing on the websites. Might be replacing the new Aston race if that has not been well received

As Will said, nothing anywhere, so obviously a case of Ďyou heard it here firstí!

Looking at the timetable, itís got to be replacing another race, so you could be spot on predicting that one.....

The race has got replacement written all over it.

The Thundersports grid is one of the only HSCC that hasn't been to the Classic yet I think.

Odd as there was an ad in the Masters Programme about the Aston race. I can't think of any other grid that would be cancelled.

More updates

The Thundersports grid has now appeared on the event website but also they've not removed the Aston Race.

The Woodcote Trophy and Stirling Moss grids have been combined into one as I imagine due to low entries which is very odd if true.

However on the timetable it is still shown as separate grids.

While itís not unusual for the two MRL grids to combine, as there are some similarities, it will be a bit annoying to those that have cars entered in both.....

Can't the Silverstone Historic Grand Prix circuit accommodate sixty or so cars ? That is probably close to the total entry of the Woodcote and Stirling Moss Trophies . Even so given that the Thundersports series has historically struggled to top twenty car grids and as has already been mentioned , some will have entered both MRL races , it does seem a strange decision .

Single seater grids seem to get stronger and stronger whilst closed wheel grids are struggling. Am I naive in thinking that single seaters are generally more original and less subject to development than newly built, hot rod modified and downright illegal GTs, sports and saloons. Perhaps people are finally getting fed up with competing with their cheque books rather than their skills. U2TC at Truxton being an example. I was impressed with how pleasantly lacking in glitz the HF2 paddock at Brands was. Just a few guys with spanners and the cars under an awning but a huge entry

Thundersports have two races, 25 minute on Saturday and a 40 minute pit stop race on Sunday. Report on the Classic website.

The phrase 'Increasing demand' makes it sound promising.

I was thinking along the same lines. With Jordan racing and Team Dynamics all restoring historic tourers and sports cars then having current BTCC or ex Professional racers in the seat, it makes competing that much less interesting.
