HSCC Chief Executive Officer Grahame White said: "We're very pleased to welcome the Classic FF2000 drivers to the HSCC after some successful trial races last season. We've been able to put together a very good calendar for them, including the Silverstone and Brands Hatch Grand Prix circuits and the Oulton Park Gold Cup."
"It is good news that we've found a home for these cars and I think they'll fit in very well with the HSCC," said Ken Thorogood from Universal Racing Services. "There are as many as 40 cars out there and I hope this move will attract more of them out."
