The season opening race meeting on the 300 circuit at Snetterton will include the re-launched Autosport 3-Hours for pre ’66 GT cars.
Recreating the former Autosport Three Hour race, the HSCC will run the endurance race on the Snetterton 200 circuit on Sunday April 23 for all pre ‘66 GT cars.
The race will be attractive to those who normally compete in the HSCC’s Guards Trophy as well as a range of other championships and series. The Club is keen to welcome competitors who want to tackle this one-off endurance contest and cars from Classic K, Gentleman Drivers, GT and Sports Car Cup, Equipe GTS, Ecurie GTS, and Motor Racing Legends will all be eligible for the race.
The three-hour contest will be open to two or more drivers per car with pit stops and special refuelling arrangements. A widened choice of tyres is being considered for the race.
Andy Dee-Crowne, CEO of the HSCC, said: “We have been looking to bring this race back onto the schedule in tribute to the original Autosport Three Hours, and we felt that this was a good time to re-launch it at our annual Snetterton race meeting.
“We hope to attract a wide range of GT cars of all engine capacities, including those that may not normally race with the HSCC but will be very welcome to come and tackle this one off race. Where necessary, day membership of the HSCC will be included in the entry fee.”
