The Historic Sports Car Club will have a major display showcasing affordable historic racing at the Lancaster Insurance Classic Motor Show at the Birmingham NEC (13-15 November).
The HSCC is Britain's leading race organiser for cars from the 1960s and 1970s and will display a range of cars from its extensive portfolio of championships and race series. The cars on show will demonstrate that historic racing can be both affordable and accessible.
The event is described as 'Britain's biggest and best classic motor show' and will include a visit from the HSCC's Patron-in-Chief, Sir Stirling Moss OBE. The racing career of Graham Hill is another leading theme of the show, which attracts many thousands of visitors across three days.
The HSCC is keen to reach out of classic car enthusiasts and show that going racing in a period car is far more accessible than many people think.
The HSCC will be on Stand 545 in Hall 1 and will show eight cars:
Lotus Elan of Peter Shaw (70s Road Sports)
Mini Cooper of Jon Milicevic (Historic Touring Cars)
Porsche 911SC of Will Leverett (70s Road Sports)
Bond of Andrew Tart (Formula Junior)
Turner of Dick Coffey (Historic Road Sports)
Lotus 51 of Keith Hazel (Historic Formula Ford)
Consul Classic of Nic Strong (Historic Touring Cars)
Arkley of Chris Fisher (70s Road Sports)
Both Leverett and Fisher only started racing in 2015 and have each enjoyed considerable success in the HSCC 70s Road Sports Championship.
Representatives from each of the categories will be available each day to talk to visitors about going racing in an affordable, competitive and fun category.
