CSCC announces Modsports and Special Saloons revival race

The Classic Sports Car Club (CSCC) announces a revival race for the Modsports and Special Saloons type cars that were such a feature of the UK club racing scene in the 1970 & 80s. The race will take place at Mallory Park on August Bank Holiday Monday, 29 August 2011. The race is open to all Modsports and Saloons, Special & Super Saloons, Thunder Saloons and Donington GT type cars and will be free to acceptable cars that raced in period.

The CSCC can confirm that Joe Ward has entered Baby Bertha, Jon Lee has entered Tony Hazlewood’s Dafnee and Dave Taylor has entered the ex Mick Hill Beetle. Other special cars of the period are planning to join.

The CSCC hopes that there will be sufficient interest generated to run further races later in the year, leading to a regular series for similar modified cars in 2012.

Baby Bertha will be on display on the CSCC’s stand at the Race Retro show in February to publicise the event.

Competition Director, Hugo Holder, commented: “Many people grew up watching the Wendy Wools Special Saloons cars: Gerry Marshall in his Vauxhalls, Doug Niven in his VW Beetle, Peter Baldwin in a variety of outlandish Minis, Ginger Marshall in a very quick Reliant Kitten, Maguire built Hillman Imps, various Skodas & highly modified Lotus Elans, Davrians, MGs and other Sports & GT cars. Modified cars were the backbone of UK club racing in those days, even making it on to TV on the BBC. Those cars have disappeared from the club scene but many are still sitting in garages waiting for an opportunity to be used again. The CSCC wants to provide that opportunity for these iconic cars to come out of hibernation & provide a fantastic spectacle for spectators now, sadly, more used to one make series.”

Owners of cars that they feel may be eligible are requested to get in touch with the club.
