The Historic Sports Car Club will have a major seven-car display at Race Retro, the International Historic Motor Sport Show, at Stoneleigh Park near Coventry (21-23 February).
The HSCC will showcase the coming racing season with the display at the centre of Race Retro in the event’s main hall. The cars on show will demonstrate the depth and variety of the club’s racing programme, which opens its 54th season at Snetterton in early April. The HSCC is at the forefront of UK historic racing and has a portfolio of 18 championships and series.
Cars from Historic Formula 2, Classic Formula 3, Historic Formula Junior, Historic Formula Ford, Historic Touring Cars and Classic Clubmans as well as a racing kart from the British Historic Karting Association will be on show. At the opposite end of the historic motor sport spectrum will be the rare Alexis trials car of Stuart Roach representing the Historic Sporting Trials Association.
Representing Formula Junior will be a fabulous Lotus 18 from Classic Team Lotus to mark the model’s 60th year, while the famous ex-Doc Shepherd Austin A40 from Scott Automotive will represent the HSCC Historic Touring Car Championship.
