After a successful conclusion to the 2023 season with its partner HVM Racing at the Dijon Motors Cup, the Historic Sports Car Club reports that competitor reactions to the new plans for Historic Formula 2 in 2024 have been very positive.
In a new development between the HSCC in the UK and HVM Racing in France, the two organisations will further extend a well-established and successful partnership to run a superb calendar of racing for Historic Formula 2 cars based on five flagship historic racing festivals in the UK and in Europe.
The F2 Classic InterSeries will be jointly organised by the two operations under the direct guidance of HSCC CEO Andy Dee-Crowne and HVM boss Laurent Vallery-Masson. The HSCC has guided Historic Formula 2 for the last 16 years and will continue to play a leading role within a partnership that allows the series to grow further and continue to attract entries from mainland Europe.
The calendar will take in the KENNOL Grand Prix de France Historique at Paul Ricard (April 19-21), the Historic Grand Prix Zandvoort (June 14-16), the Brands Hatch Superprix (July 13-14), Silverstone Festival (August 23-25) and the Spa Six Hours (September 25-29).
Each race weekend will feature a qualifying session of 20 minutes and two races of 25 minutes. One test session of 20 minutes will be included in the entry fee for some events.
Andy Dee-Crowne of the HSCC said: “This is a fresh new start for Historic Formula 2, building on the success of the category over the last decade and more. The HSCC is delighted to be extending our successful partnership with HVM Racing to ensure that Formula 2 retains its rightful place at the forefront of historic racing across Europe.”
The category is open to cars built to and complying with the original Formula 2, Formula B and Formula Atlantic regulations from 1967 to 1978 but excluding ground effect cars in all classes.
HVM Racing and HSCC are currently working on the regulations for the series with more details to follow shortly.
