The team at the Historic Sports Car Club is saddened to learn that both historic race meetings planned for Spa-Francorchamps in late September and mid-October have now been cancelled in their entirety.
The Roadbook Organisation has today confirmed the cancellation of both the Spa Classic Six-Hour (25-27 September) and the Spa Hat-Trick meeting (10/11 October). The HSCC Historic Formula 2 season was due to conclude at the Hat-Trick event.
Meanwhile, the HSCC has also cancelled its involvement in the Dijon Motors Cup (2-4 October) but it is important to stress that this event is still going ahead as planned.
Now that all European events for HSCC members are off the calendar for the balance of 2020, the Club will concentrate on its remaining UK events, which are all going ahead as planned.
The Wolds Trophy at Cadwell Park (19/20 September), the Silverstone Finals Meeting (17/18 October) and the Walter Hayes Trophy (31 October/1 November) all have races to accommodate a wide range of historic cars. In particular, Formula 2 cars will be welcome on the Aurora Trophy grid at Silverstone and the popular closed and open wheel Allcomers races will be run on the Saturday of the Walter Hayes Trophy. The entry fee for the two Allcomers races is just £195.
HSCC CEO Andy Dee-Crowne said: “We are very sorry to hear the news that Roadbook has had to cancel both its Spa events this autumn. The Classic Six-Hour is one of the iconic events on the historic racing calendar and we fully intend to support the event again in 2021. Meanwhile, we have had to withdraw from the Dijon Motors Cup for this year but wish Laurent Vallery-Masson and his team every success with running the event.
“Although we can no longer offer drivers the chance to race at Spa-Francorchamps and Dijon in September and October, our events at Cadwell Park and Silverstone are going ahead as planned and we would like to invite anyone with a relevant car to come and join us.”
