A special inter-marque award will be presented for the Road Sports races at the Historic Sports Car Club Autosport Three-Hour meeting at Snetterton on 13/14 June.
The weekend will feature a combined double-header for the Historic Road Sports and 70s Road Sports Championships and the club has decided to introduce some inter-marque rivalry into the pair of races.
The first 10 overall finishers will earn marque points on a sliding scale and the best marque total across the two races will win the Inter-Marque Challenge Trophy.
The Historic Road Sports Championship is open to production sports cars built up to the end of 1969, while the 70s Road Sports Championship moves the story on another decade.
"Our Road Sports races always have wonderfully varied grids," said Grahame White, CEO of the HSCC. "This is a neat way of adding another dimension to the races and I hope the competitors will enjoy some friendly competition between the marques."
The opening weekend of the HSCC season at Thruxton featured cars from 15 marques across the two Road Sports championships, with eight UK manufacturers represented: TVR, Lotus, MG, Morgan, Ginetta, Turner, Triumph and Marcos. Other European marques were Porsche, Lancia, Milano and Alfa Romeo while from the US were cars from Ford and Chevrolet and Datsun represented Japan.
