The ‘HSCC Hub’ will be a new focal point in the paddock for drivers, families and teams at all Historic Sports Car Club race meetings this year.

At events that include races for the Derek Bell Trophy, the impressive new hospitality unit for the series will be at the heart of the HSCC Hub in the race paddock. At all other events, the Hub will be a central feature where drivers, families and team from each race series will be encouraged to meet and have light refreshments.

As part of plans to elevate the status of the Derek Bell Trophy, a purpose built unit will attend all rounds with seating, hot and cold drinks and light refreshments for all those involved in the championship.

The Hub is designed to foster on-going camaraderie and spirit amongst teams and drivers and builds on the success of similar facilities developed for some HSCC championships over recent years.

Andy Dee-Crowne, CEO of the HSCC said: “For many of our competitors, their families and their teams, race weekends are about the social element as well as the on track activity.

“By formalising the HSCC Hub at each event, we want to encourage more people to come along and spend time getting to know their fellow competitors. As a club made up of enthusiasts, it’s a great way to spend time with like-minded individuals and gives teams, supporters and family members somewhere to relax and enjoy some time over a race weekend.”

The HSCC season kicks off at Snetterton on April 20/21 with a full weekend of racing on the 200 circuit at the Norfolk venue.
